  1. Thanks Dannik for clarifying that as an Admin, so won't discuss this further. For interest, before posting I did look, but couldn't find SOAF for sale, hence the question (Steam [at least not in my region - Aus.], gog.com, amazon.com.au, or EB Games and JB Hi-Fi [local games shops]). After reading your msg, I had a wider look, and did find copies on amazon.com. Even though they won't ship to me, my consideration of SOAF as 'abandonware' was still wrong. I'll go back to my original plan using an 'origmiss' map for the mission I'm scripting ...
  2. Many apologies (especially to whoever had to edit my post). I've [since...] looked for the forum rules, found the FAQ which mentions 'this' (but no link), looked on the Main and Forum pages, and Googled: site:ghostrecon.net forum rules which shows a list of breaches but not the actual list. I'm probably missing the obvious (quite likely), so can someone include a url to the rules please? I found something that may be of relevance and want to make sure it is appropriate first.
  3. Many thanks Gloops, works a treat. I renamed the .exe and while it still takes some time to load (COD 4, for example, is much faster) it now launches first go. I also found it doesn't need the CD in the drive (having the R6 Vegas disk in the drive wasn't making any difference...). I have other older games so may look at nuking the Games Explorer as well. I have a '[Thing that should not be spoken of here IAW Forum Rule 3.7].exe' backed up, which must've been for Win 98/XP installs (can't think of/remember any other reason for having it); didn't want my legitimate software thrashing my drive.
  4. I have Ghost Recon ('Complete' with GR, DS, & IT, if that makes any difference) installed from CD on Win7-64 bit (not updated, which may make a difference?). For reasons I don't understand, after my laptop (HP Pavilion with Nvidia graphics card) is rebooted, the first time you launch GR, nothing happens. Go into Task Manager, into the Processes tab, select GhostRecon.exe *32 and click on the End Process button. Then launch Ghost Recon again and it works but takes some time to load (which decreasing load times on subsequent sessions, until the next reboot). I used to leave the GR CD in the drive, but it used to thrash it (so bypassed that), but after my last vanilla install I launched GR forgetting I still had the Rainbow 6 Vegas disk in the drive, and it still worked (as described above). Maybe worth a try, see if it works for you.
