    Post Windows 7 & SH IV

    Just got a new computer and trying to run the SH IV, WOP, Gold edition. I started a career and able to select a crew. I plotted a course on the nav map. But when I went to the Bridge or Attack periscope, the game will crash. I have unintalled/re-installed the game, placing in it's own folder, it didn't help. I have Window Seven as my operating system 32 bit, Intel E6550 Processor, 2GB of memory and 750 GB hard drive. Will SH IV Gold Edition run on Windows Seven? Thanks for help in advance.

    SH4 will run perfectly fine on Win 7. You didn't mention what kind of video card was in your new computor. That could be your problem.


    BTW, Welcome to the SH Forums.

    Sorry, Intel Q35 Express Chipset. If you think this is the problem, what kind of video card should have installed?

    Is your new computer a laptop? More than likely you have Intel integrated graphics on the motherboard. Intel graphics don't run SH4 very well, sometimes not at all.

    Thanks Tambor198 for the information. I do have a desktop and should be able to install a video card. What are some of the cards that work with SH IV Gold Edition? I was into the TMO mods before with my last computer. I was able to run TMO 1.9 on before losing the motherboard on it. Since. I noticed that Ducimus ( which I have alot of respect for) has came out with TMO 2.5. Seems that I read somewhere that certain types of cards worked best with SH IV.

    Any of the newer ATI or Nvidia cards should work for you just fine, Larry. It doesn't have to one the most expensive either.

    Ok, so my new laptop will not install SH4. I'm running windows 7, 64-bit. I am receiving the error above,

    "data error (cyclic redundancy check)"

    Any thoughts on this?

    Hello firefamily5,

    The data error could be connected to reading data off of the Cd/Dvd. You may want to Google "data error (cyclic redundancy check)" and read some of the search results.
    Here is one site I found that talks about it and what it is -

    SH-IV receives incompatible application when using Win7. Built in adapter is GeForce 6150SE nForce 430.
