Who said running the shadows was easy? Dodging bullets, swords, spirits, and spells just to name a few. Elves, Dwarves, Trolls, even the occasional Dragon can make any Shadowrun go bad.

PostSubject: CharGen4.2 compatibility issue   Thu Aug 19, 2010 4:29 pm

If I try to open the CharGen 4.2 in Windows 7 it sizes in such a way that I don't have access to all the buttons. I've tried running it under various Windows constraints (XP, Vista), I've changed my resolution, disabled my screen settings... pretty much every check box on the Tab.

Anyone gotten it to work?

I've looked at the excel sheet that was posted as an alternative, but it gives me trouble if I try to add data that was left out.

Any suggestions?

Tried that, I run out of room... which is funny since I've got a huge screen and the resolution is so small... Maybe if I tweak the icon settings...

Changing the icon settings is what it took. I normally view the screen from about 4 or 5 feet away, and sometimes set the icons to medium when I get lazy and don't want to actually pay attention. Setting it to small allows me to resize the screen enough to view it all.

Uninstall
Reboot
Right Click over Installation icon
Select Windows Capability mode
Select Windows XP or Vista
Also Select Run as Administractor

See if it runs after that.

Window 7 64 bit or 32 bit...if 64 you may be screwed.

Thanks for the advice, but I think I'll just stick with the simple work around I posted earlier.
