Install issues..
first time i ran the game moments after download everything was fine. went to first training mission and flew for a few moments. now i am getting a system dump error and apparently the game is having trouble finding the file

Dump Information = "Can't load "d:\steam\steamapps\common\f-22 lightning 3\l3.map""

i am confused. multiple file deletes and re-downloads and re-installs arent helping. the file isnt there.

Hi!, Same Problem Here, But i Fixed

Enter in the Game Directory
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\F-22 Lightning 3" (in my case)


Open: L3.ini using a Text Editor
And Replace:
GAME_FULLSCREEN 1
GAME_RESOLUTION 640
MENU_FULLSCREEN 1


For:
GAME_FULLSCREEN 0
GAME_RESOLUTION 1024
MENU_FULLSCREEN 0


That worked for me

PD: Sorry Bad English

Thanks for the comment. I actually ended up creating another steam app directory on an external harddrive and seemed to work fine then.

I'm using nGlide[www.zeus-software.com] 1.05 to emulate a 3DFX Voodoo card (best they had back then), and I changed my L3.ini to:

GAME_FULLSCREEN 1
GAME_RESOLUTION 1024
MENU_FULLSCREEN 0


and that worked. I'll try and see if I can get better resolutions out of it etc, we'll see.
