sorry if this has already been posted but how do I run call of duty 2 online on Vista? Singleplayer runs fine it's just multiplayer that when I try to run it it comes up the message "cod2mp_s.exe has stopped running" anyone got any solutions?

Are you playing it in compatibility mode?

In multiplayer mode there are issues with Punkbuster support. Due to Vista's security features, playing on Punkbuster servers with Punkbuster enabled will give you an error. Right-click on the shortcut you use to launch the game and select "Run as Administrator". If that does not work then Right-click on the shortcut you use to launch the game and select "Properties", then select "Compatibility" and place check in "Run as Administrator".
You could try playing on servers that don't require Punkbuster and thus turning it off.
If that doesn't work try turning off your UAC (user account control).Control panel>user accounts>turn user account control off.

There are also issues with the brightness and gamma correction.

I've finished it twice, and have it installed on an XP machine, but Vista doesn't like it much. It will run, but looks far too dark to be playable.
