Exclamation XWA fix for ATI HD and nVidia posted

The hits just keep on coming, boys!

A user on the XWA Upgrade forums, "Reimar," has posted a fix for graphic problems in XWA running on both the ATI HD series and current-generation nVidia GPUs. The procedure is detailed in this thread.

Sorry, but I've been out of touch. You could always ask the guys about the patch file.

it doesn't actually work

I have an NVidia 9600 GT, and i went through the steps in that thread, after reading all trilion pages of it. I got the patcher, the batch files, etc. I ran it, then loaded up the game. THe problem had not been changed, except that i now had an HUD. I didn't have any models, except in the HUD.

So, a real fix would be appreciated. I've been working on this for over 5 hours now.

Slorrin, you might pay the XWA Upgrade forums a visit...a post there may provide assistance.

That's what I'm talking about, the XWAU forum. I tried everything on there and it didnt' work.

Ultimately a friend told me that i needed ddraw.dll

Hi Slorrin,
I also happen to have a 9600GT, and the very same problem you had...
Could you please let me know what exactly was the ddraw solution you mention?
Cheers!!!

That link to the XWupgrade forum leads to a dead end.
