    Default HELP: Fm issues :/

    I have installed the demo on my netbook, used the compatability patch 9.1.0 and even added the -windowed_small_screen fix. I have all the necessary system specs apart from the video card ram.
    This however isn't a problem as i installed it previously (before my entire computer got reset) and it worked fine. I have installed the direct sdk from microsoft.
    It now does not open and when i click on the shortcut again it says the program is already running.
    I go into windows task manager and sure enough it is there in my processes.
    Please help

    EDIT: I hope i posted this in the right place

    My computer never runs the game in compatability mode - try running it in full mode.

    I'm sure I've seen this brought up a few times in the technical issues/PC support forum, maybe try asking there yeah?

    He's talking about the demo patch, not compatibility mode.

    Depends on how good your computer is. What are your system specs?
