    I've run into similar issues on older games, usually where the CPU is simply processing things far too fast for the game engine.

    I don't know if this is the issue you're experiencing but try to limit the frame rate using software such as MSI Afterburner or NVidia GeForce Control Panel/Experience.

    Please report back to let me know if it makes a difference.

    So i took a different approach to your advice and looked in my control panel, found that VSync was forced on. I'm guessing since bridge commander doesn't have a VSync option that it wasn't designed to sync up the frames to the monitor. So I turned it off. Not like you're gonna get horrible screen tear playing this anywho.

    And now it works. I should've looked into this sooner, but nevertheless I really appreciate the help. you guys should totally add this to your installation instructions. vsync seems so harmless even in older games that people probably never consider it a factor.

    Thanks for getting back to us stibbymicto, and I'm glad to hear you've resolved your issue!

    VSync is personally not something I'd recommend enabling system-wide anyway as I've know it to cause input lag, and only enable it on a case-by-case basis for each game if I experience tearing with it.

    Hello, all. I'm grateful that this forum exists! I've been unable to patch my STBC install. I get an error stating that the patch is unable to locate an installation of STBC. Has anyone else encountered this or have any ideas? Thanks to all.

    Was the game installed through the BC installer? I believe it leaves registry keys to the directory location (don't quote me on that). If it was just a copy and paste of the BC directory then the patch installer would not know the location of the files.

    Thank you. You were correct as it was a copy and paste. After a bit more research, I discovered that the copied and pasted version included the 1.1 patch. I'm all fixed up. Thanks! Smile
