My graphics for xwa are all messed up, i.e. the rader in the middle on the screen, etc. This happened after I installed a new patch for my graphics card (A creative tnt2 ultra) and patched xwa to 2.02. I tried to uninstall both patches but was only succesful with the latter. Since then, I can't play the game http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/frown.gif, any help would be appreciated

Reinsall XWA, and use the smallest install.

Thanks, it worked, but my inflight fonts still have the same problem. The fonts are doubled and slightly displaced, hence making each letter inconsistent and hard to make out

Use the latest 5.xx drivers, and if your problems persist, go to 5.16 or earlier.

I've heard of text being messed up with certain drivers. Sometimes actually downgrading your card's drivers improves the game.

But then you can't play some newer games. (i.e. my situation)
