Ok anybody have any issues with this game, it was working ok until i bought the extra plane pack a few dyas ago, now all it does is crash back to desktop with a "Skydrift stopped working error"......

I have tried a full OS install(windows 7 64 bit home prem), all uptodate, installed windows Xp, same issue.....tried a ton of diffrent driver and still no joy.

Cant seem to find a answer to this one...anybody else had this issue?

Ok this is just weird......i can play the demo without any issues but cant play the full game.

I am scratching my head at this one.

Try reinstalling DirectX 9c (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=35) and... Microsoft Visual C++ (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=14632) redistributables. I found that doing this worked for me*. Make sure you've got the latest driver for your videocard and the chipset driver for your motherboard installed.

*in the past when I had problems like this.

I've had the same problem, Skydrift always stopped working.
Re-installed DirectX and VCredist many times ->No Luck
Tried with lower color settings (16Bit instead of 32Bit) ->No Luck

However, I got it to work by lowering my Windows Desktop Resolution (Native 1680x1050) to something like 1280x960 (or even 1280x720)

So , before I start the game, I change my Windows Resolution, and it works!
PS : The game is great ! (If you're into Arcade Style Racing Fun)
