Wow that's pretty nuts. Do you have some more specifics. System specs, were you trying to run a mission, qmb, online game, coop, etc.

I was just playing single missions. same missions today are all black. It's like something swiched me to night missions. my plane,and enemy ground targets are vis, just no ground features at all. yesterday was fine, and have'nt changed anything. pf stand alone not affected, only merged install. It's weird as hell. moonsign

sounds like a severe problem either with your gfx-card, or -if you're lucky- with your drivers. Try to reinstall the drivers and DirectX.

As a last resort,i unstalled both, cleaned out old files, de-fraged, reg cleaner,checked drivers,x800pro works fine in ms2004. re-installed pf stand alone, and am getting same problem,no terain features,only night time looking screen. buildings,planes,trucks ect.show up fine, but no ground, only black.
anyone got a answer for this one. i'm stumped. moonsign

When you uninstalled both, did you delete the remaining game folders? Sometimes the uninstaller leaves folders and traces of the original install behind. I always make a point of deleting all 'left overs' before reinstalling. Just a thought!

Do other games have problems?..did you try in DirectX mode?

Guy's i think i found the problem. After checking out everything, and i mean everything, and coming up short, just on a hunch I ran virus scan.Here's what i found,[unwanted program]ILookup.dll[twice].Deleted Ilookup.dll, and re-loaded PF, now works fine. Will try a Il-2 FB,AEP,then a PF merge. That unwanted program now deleted, seemed to be the problem I was having. "Moonsign" OUT
