Hello all, I am not a very big gamer, but I've been using Game Jackal for a few years now, for the couple of games I do have (Far Cry and UT2004) ..... I do this only cause I have MS, and thus handling cd's, putting dvd's in the drive usually isn't a good thing for me to do. ..... I've never had a problem with either of these games running from game jackal, at present I have v. 126.96.36.199 on. I had been putting on every single update till then, all with no problems. That is, until the other day when the update for 188.8.131.52 came out. Once installed, I got some kind of crash. (I can't remember what it was) No biggie I thought, and just rolled back to my last drive image, so now I am back to 184.108.40.206. However, now UT2004 will only launch successfully from Game Jackal about 50 pct of the time, and Far Cry will fail about 99 pct of the time. (Soon as I click on Far Cry from my Game Jackal menu, I get a BSOD, Stop Error, with Bad_Pooler_Call... then it begins (the long) process of dumping memory. (I say long, cause I have 4gb ram) I have tried uninstalling/Reinstalling Game Jackal, with no success, I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the individual games, same results. In short, no matter what I do, I get the Bad_Pooler_Call BSOD. I've even tried a repair install of windows. I am running Windows XP Pro, with sp2 .... 4 gb ram, 5 internal harddrives, 2 dvdrw's, and an ATI Radeon X1800 video card ... all on an ASUS A8N Deluxe motherboard. Both these games WILL run from their cd's, or even by clicking it's .exe icon, just NOT from Game Jackal. And yes, I do have a ton of stuff running in the background, but nothing that hasn't always been there and running with no problems. Thank you for you patience in reading thing longwinded thing.
