Ok, so Ive been trying to get Xcom Utility and Extender mods to work together. However, I suffer from this scrambled graffics issue. Ive run them both separately with no issues. And running them together works fine until I enter a battle, once the inventory screen loads the graffics go all psychedelic.
Im confused as I intially suffered from this graphics problem and got it resolved by using extender. Ive read Blade Fire Lights comment
confirming they do work together and followed the install instructions from Caboose_Nor from the same thread. This didnt work until I ticked all the boxes in my compatibilty options from the properties menu (right clicking on the RunXcom.bat) I could then enter the game with no problems up until the inventory screen.
When the game loads to a battle from the geoscape, the game flickers out as utility does its thing, then flicks back to the battlescape inventory menu upon which the graffics go garbled. From then on the graffics remain naff.
I assume there is some conflict caused when utility does its bit just before the battle inventory appears causing extenders graffics fix to fail. And hopefully theres a work around for it.
Any advice? Is there perhaps another install method or some other patch I can use as well what utility and extender offer?
Also, I understand disabling the directdraw is meant to work, but this is not possible on window 7 which is my os.
Some details on my system...
Windows 7 32bit
Intel® Core2 Quad CPU Q9450 @ 2.66GHz
NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT
