Hi guys. I have Windows 7 and after a lot of troubleshooting finally got it to work on my computer.

> Cannot flip display buffers
> Game Not Saving
> Playing with RV House for online play
> Re-Volt freeze after launching


Cannot flip display buffers
Just like on it's written on here http://www.revoltrace.net/help.php#revolt-in-vista you must add -sli to your launch options on the revolt shortcut.


Game Not Saving
Windows 7 has changed the registry path in which the game uses to save player name, unlocked tracks and cars.

Windows 7 32-bit (unverified / old path)
CODE
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acclaim\Re-Volt\1.0

Windows 7 64-bit path
CODE
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Acclaim\Re-Volt\1.0



Here is the registry file to apply to unlock all cars / tracks and as well allow saving of Re-Volt information. Copy and paste into notepad file and save as .reg

Windows 7 32-bit

Playing with RV-House for online play

I recommend playing with compatibility mode OFF. When turned on, I am not able to manually enter a IP for network play in game......the game will crash. No compatibility lets me manually connect just fine.

Just like the document says on http://www.revoltrace.net/help.php you must add -sli to the registry each time before launching re-volt from inside RV-House

Here are the paths:

Windows 7 32-bit
CODE
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DirectPlay\Applications\Re-Volt


Windows 7 64-bit
CODE
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\DirectPlay\Applications\Re-Volt


Under "CommandLine" add -sli


The easiest thing to do at this point is File > Export and save the file somewhere easily assessable, that way you only need to click on the registry file for the -sli command is added again.



These are some helpful hints that should help members with Windows 7 be able to play Re-Volt online. As always, the usual port forwarding and firewall settings should be configured as well, but you should be able to run the game and play online.

Re-Volt Freeze Issue
Adding -nosound aside to -sli should fix this issue. Perhaps -no3dsound helps as well. It doesn't happen on all systems, tho and the reason to a freeze might vary.

If you really don't want to play with no sound, try eventually to download this mss32.dll and replace the existing dll with that.

Thanks for posting that information. I believe that everything applies to Windows Vista as well. Related to the freezing, Huki seem to have solved his problem. I added the information about -Nosound to your topic, if that's alright wink.gif

Yes no problem, anything that helps others overcome the issues that I faced is great.

Well if you don't experience any problems, then there isn't anything to solve. I suppose you do have a problem of some sort and if that is the case, please describe it first. wink.gif

You are writing that you have an original copy of the game so I suppose you are saying that you installed it from the Re-Volt CD. If that is correct you have to update Re-Volt to a newer version. Thing is though that since over 10 years has past since the Re-Volt CD has been released, you have to install more than just one if you want to be on the safe side. tongue.gif

Re-Volt Patch 1.1
Patch 0916
Allows exported editor tracks as double sized and allows the use of Custom tracks in multi player. (description copied from Re-Volt Motorsports)

Patch 1207
Same as 0916 + allows you to play Re-Volt without the CD inserted.


Re-Volt Patch 1.2 Beta
This official beta fixes the incompatibility issue with Windows Vista & Windows 7, so this update is mandatory if you want Re-Volt to work. Furthermore it also has many fixes and new features such as for example wide screen support. You can download it from update.rvzt.net (recommended that you read about it there as well).

Re-Volt Patch 1.2 Alpha (Optional)
It has been some time since the beta has been updated (latest was Februrary 8th 2011), so these Alphas is available for download if you want to be fully updated. Be aware that the alpha versions (or nightly builds) can be unstable of buggy, so if you only want to play and not participate in alpha testing I suggest you skip this download.

I hope these patches fixes your issue, jchoppe. smile.gif

I assume you are installing from the original Re-Volt CD. If that's the case, you should try run SETUP.EXE instead of simply using autorun. I can't get the autorun working here myself.

If that isn't working, then try Downloading the Re-Volt 1207 installer, it should install the full game. After that, download Re-Volt patch 1.2 to fix compatibility issues on Windows 7. More info about Re-Volt patch 1.2 can be found here.

Try this alternative link:
http://revolt_f1.webs.com/RV%20Tools/Re-Volt.exe

It's the same installer from ReVoltRace, so it doesn't have the in-game music either, but at least the game works.

As Urne said, don't forget to download and install Patch 1.2 as soon as you finish Re-Volt installation in order to make the game work in Windows 7.

Seeyou penguin.
