Right click in the game on your library, go to properties, then go to "Set launch options..." and then type this: -nofbo

I have exactly the same problem as 475 Wizard. Tried to contact Steam support but we all know how that works.

Changing the registry did not work for me. Hearing&keying method did not work either. I have doublechecker the registry so see if the parameters have changed and they have. At the moment i cannot launch the game in playable resolution at all. I am beginning to wonder why Valve are selling the game at discount. Maybe we have to pay to get Dod to work again.

Yes, i tried the launch option also, didnt work. I have downloaded counterstrike-deleted scenes just to check if that worked and it did. The videoproblems seems to be located to DoD only. Unfortunately there are no such thing as a default setting for the whole game. I have had problems since i just of curiosity changed the resolutin to 320x200, then i could not change it back because i could not see the buttons. I feel so helpless!

I changed the resolution to 300x200 and i couldn't turn it back, so i tried the hearing and keying method and it worked.
If it doesn't work, maybe you can uninstall the game and then install it again.

Well, i have reinstalled and it did not work either. I am totally lost now. It really bugs me that steam support doesn,t answer for six days now.

To avoid possible confusions, this is Day of Defeat with hl-engine NOT source.

Try uninstalling all the games that use the HL-engine, or at least try uninstalling Half-Life and DoD.

That did the trick!!!!! By the way, steam support haven't answered yet and it is now 8 days ago.
You are very smart, Jackarthi, you should work on steam support.

Actually soft mode does not provide very good graghics. It is possible to play though but crosshair is missing and the game crasched once. But it is better than not beeing able to play at all. I am beginng to understand why Steam support donm't answer. They must have major problems with open gl that don't work anymore on many comps.

Well, the problems are coming back again. And i do have an open gl driver. I rember that i tried open gl some yers ago and i did not work then so i guess i played with the option that has been removed.

Now, all of a sudden, it looks like open gl start to work!!! iiI played for half an hour with no problems what so ever. There was an steam update when i logged in and maybe they have fixed something, i do not know. W'll see if it lasts!!!
