HeXen has a run time failure every time i try to boot it up. whenever i try to load the game it just gives me one of those "This program has encountered an error and must close" dialogues. Anyone else have this problem? anyone else know what to do?

Taken from another thread

Got same problem under vista & found a solution for Nvidia graphics cards

Go to Nvidia control panel
Select Manage 3D settings
Click ADD
Locate the Glh2.exe file & click on open button
Scroll down to extension limit & set it to ON
Click Apply
Close Nvidia control panel

GLHexen 2 now launches fine

I have the same problem but I use ATI instead of Nvidia. Does anyone know how to fix this issue for ATI cards?

Apparently it's a problem in the latest ATI drivers. Simply download the above file and place it in the Hexen 2 folder (it's a dll). Works for other games too, such as RTCW.

Mine is in Steam\steamapps\common (found using search).

Also, thanks very much 2SeeKU, it worked like a charm.
