Some amount of adjusting these settings and restarting the game manages to get it working again, but I've yet to detect a pattern.

Comanche 4 has always had a similar problem where anti-aliasing is greyed out and I had to start C4, click a menu point, then click back a step to get the gamma adjustment to activate, okay, sure, but after the update, C4 won't start if the bit-depth is 16, however, strangely, the C4 mod I made will.

So, anybody have a clue?

Edit: Did a bit of googling. Found a troubleshooter thing called wushowhide.diagcab. Downloaded it to find it's already on my HD. Run it to hide drivers from Windows Update. Got my fingers crossed!
Sry a litle late but from memory you can tweak/force settings in dfv.cfg and using commandline arguments for windows serveonly etc.on the exe.

It's all here somewhere on the forums, we all sorted the tweaks out over time...

In It For The Game!
