Before installing on x64, right click the English patch, go to the compatibility tab at the top, tick the run as admin box, and run under Vista Sp2 compatibility.
I knew something was wrong when I started up the installer (had the bad windows message come up), so exited and started up again with the above steps and all good (except, read below)
2.4GHz Centrino 2 Duo
3GB SDDR3 RAM
320GB HDD (150GB free)
Intel 4 Series/ nVidia 9 Series Hybrid Graphics (both at 1GB GDDR3 each)
Windows 7 x64 Professional
13.1' LED LCD (native at 1600x900)
English Locale (no applocale)
No voice (not yet, at least)
Did a clean install from a x86 Vista Business to a x64 7 Pro. The FSN installation on Vista works without problems, that is, it saves in Program Files. In the other hand, with x64 Windows 7, it goes into the virtualstore folder instead (nothing in the program files folder).
I am guessing this is because FSN on my machine installed in the Program Files(x86) folder, so it goes to virtualstore instead. But just letting you know, in the unlikely case this has been reported (or the search at the top has failed me...)
At the moment though, moving all my old saves into virtualstore lets me play them without problems, so I guess that is good.
message will probably remember me a few months back posting a laggy nVidia 9300 graphics problem (and you told me to get a graphics driver update, to which I quoted something about nVidia's heat issues).
This new Windows 7 uses a brand-spanken new driver, but still laggy with nVidia selected.In addition, I can't get a proper full screen while on the nVidia AND Intel (huge black boxes on the sides; full screen vertically, though not horizontally in the 16:9 ratio - it remains at 4:3). I'm assuming this is a driver issue since full screen worked on Vista's graphics drivers and with both GPUs
On a more detailed analysis, when I choose to EXIT full screen, I can see the menu bar at the top fully extend horizontally before returning to a window mode. This is with both nVidia and Intel. So I am thinking this maybe solvable with a few tweaks......?
Another theory; I have yet to install voice on my new FSN installation. Maybe there is a slight chance the full screen ain't working due to the lack of voices? I did save all my previous saves with a voiced install of FSN so... Will be applying voices when I have enough free time to stay close to (and leave on) the lappie for approx 3 hours non-stop. Always on the move you see...
Will keep you updated
I can't reproduce this error, but I once had a window box popup before FSN started, with a garbled message saying "TYPE-MOON Fate/stay night, ....... by mirrormoon." I know I should have taken a screenshot but didn't -_-*
It wasn't a fatal error (can't really even say it was an error per-se) - as soon as I pressed the sole button on the window, FSN started up normally. It is just that I've never seen a similar box before anywhere on this forum...
[EDIT] Bug 2 regarding the 4:3 ratio has been fixed. The new driver I got had scaling full screen ON by default, which is quite a secluded toggle button in the control panel. But the lagging still remains. I have installed FHA on my machine now, and that don't have lags with the 9300GM. So I am guessing it is something on the FSN side. Was planning on installing and trying out FSN without the translation patch (ie, full Japanese install), but still testing some stuff here and there - will try and update this with more developments...
