Hey guys,

Picked up JA2 on GOG last night.
Got crazy mouse trails and screen flicker.
I'm running Windows 7 64 on a Quadcore Dell laptop.
I've already reinstalled,same prob.
Any ideas?

I am assuming you are using Crossfire or SLI. Turn it off and
run the game using only 1 graphics card.

Edit:Nvm... a laptop?

Well, you might want to install 1.13 mod and see if it fixes the problem.

I originally downloaded and installed game and mod one after another. Noticed prob.
Uninstalled both. Reinstalled vanilla. Same prob.
I've also done all that run as admin bizness :(

Make sure you have updated video drivers too!

From GOG wiki for JA2

Screen tearing and mouse trails

ATI Crossfire and NVIDIA SLI may cause tearing and mouse trails in game, so it is suggested to set the game as "Single GPU exe" (or equivalent) if this is the case. Quite often, if not all the time, when the game is exitted, it will display a "Jagged Alliance 2 has stopped working" dialog. This has no ill effect on the game's performance, or your system, so it can be safely ignored.

So yeah, this problem is basically for someone having 2 GPUs. I don't know why it's happening to you, for a laptop. Some people suggested running the game in windowed mode.
