S T A L K E R - Can't get it to run

  RobCharles1981 12:50 25 May 2007

I've just brought Stalker on my New Machine
AMD 56000
ASUS Crosshair
Cosair XMS2 DDR 6400 Ram

I've installed the game fine, but when I double click on the desktop icon nothing happens at all!

Any ideas?

Right click the desktop icon and check that the Target is looking at the correct program.

Looks fine to me

might sound silly but have you tried waiting.
when i played it ,it took 5 mins for anything to happen after d-clicking... awful long time but after the first play it was quicker after that!

go to programme files > thq then explore thq folder for the icon that is the same as shortcut icon,should be in system folder of something similar.double click on it from here incase your desktop shortcut is corrupt.
if it works you could try copying and pasting to your desktop later,but try from here first.
also is it an original game or is it downloaded ?

Thanks Jay its original game ile try your suggestion now. would it be a good idea to have the latest patch to hand as well? I downloaded the 1.3 patch?

may have to work your way up if you get 'incompatible program' messages, (rhs select uk patches only, assuming uk game)
