Default Freelancer on the Dell Mini 9/945GM - 10-04-2009, 02:15 PM

Does anybody else get this nightmarish vision on some of the menus in Freelancer?

The text flickers and jumps all over the screen--It really is horrendous. I'm not sure why this happens, but I think it's something to do with the 945 chipset. Funny that nobody mentioned this in the 'List of Games that play on the Mini 9/10v' thread, so I hope it's not just me. Any thoughts?

Yes!!!!!!! It is catastrophically annoying!!!!!

I ran it fine when I was using XP and Vista, but now im running 7, its horrible!!!

I think it may be something to do with a GMA950 driver update that was released earlier...

Anymore help would be great

Just to cover the basics...

Did you try to run it in compatibility mode? I'd guess XP SP 2 as the best choice.
