Strange graphics issue with Windows 7 - multiple user accounts



  • I've bought a copy of 1701 Gold Edition. It installed fine on my main account, an administrator account with UAC. But when my son tries on his non admin account, the trees are drawn wrong! Really big and sheared - making it impossible to play.

    Its the same for my wife'a account which is also an admin account - the trees are drawn wrong.

    I just find it totally weird that the game will is OK on one account and on others has serious graphics issues...

    It kind of suggests a problem in windows rather than the game itself.

    Anybody got any thoughts, or managed to cure a similar problem?


    Repsonses: The Graphics Card is an ATI Radion HD 3600 - driver up to date.

    One test I did was to add a completely new user - it works.

    On my Son's account, similar on my wife's account too: alt text



  • I would suggest to reinstall the newest grafics driver. If it asks install for all users set it to true. I guess you installed the grafics driver as your user. I don´t know if that really is the cause of this issue but I guess it´s worth a try. 😉

    Pleas give an update if it worked. If not I´m going to think again.
