Mines the same mate, I was told that its an issue with Vista.
Also when I start HL i get 2 warnings but it starts fine.

I almost forgot about this, lol. It's a problem where vista does not read the skins config file right. Open the skin file in the hyperlobby folder and anything that ends in three periods "..." take one period away and then save the file. All will be well after that.

Mr. Urufu for Galactic President in fact http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Just tried your suggestion and it works!

Right click on Desk Top icon, open File Allocation, select Skins, select Default and reduce anything with 3 points/periods to 2.

(Had to explain this incase there is anyone else out there as dull as me http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif).

Thanks again.

I had to make a copy of the file 'skins' and copy that into the parent Hl directory to get it to work. It did work though, and he does it again. Cheers Shinjiro ~S~
