any help for a noobie buying a new pc? :)

Post  trash on Fri Mar 07 2008, 05:52

hiho Smile

i've been having lots of pc problems lately so i've decided to buy a new one. i think i've decided on the one i want but my only worry is, it has windows vista on it. i'm kinda scared to try that. i'm familiar with xp only and have always been happy with it. anyone have any experience with vista? any problems with kal on vista? i think kal only runs with the 32 bit version?
i think i'll just go ahead and order it this weekend unless anyone says to definately stay away from it.

thanks Smile

Try to order with xp available on it. I was computer shopping also and noticed I had a choice from xp or vista.

vista is still not very user friendly, many bugs and not compatible with some things still.

eek! it was a little ugly there for a minute. thought this new pc was gonna go out the window hahaha. it kept having problems decompressing some file and then started telling me there was a problem with the anti-hack. grrrrrrrr finally figured out if i right click on it and "run as administrator" (whatever the hell that means) it works just fine Smile seems crazy but i'm online so i'm not gonna complain Very Happy:D:D

only thing i need to figure out now is how to switch it to window mode. i tried the way it works with xp, but no luck with vista. if anybody knows, i'd glady pay you 4 goby for the info Razz hahaha

thanks Smile

go into your hard drive look for KalOnlineEng ---> System file----> Add MODE_WINDOW=1 save then done.

This is what I found on KalHq, appears to be the same old way.

Others on KalHq say you have to say your administrator each time you start up Kal.
I don't have vista so I'm not certain.

Below is from MATTY


click on ur kalonline folder and go to properties

then security tab

then click under ur username and edit to : allow to all options"

after that trying modifying the system.ini to allow u

to use windows mode agin



Good luck !
