I downloaded and installed and then clicked on the game to start and absolutely nothing happens. I click on it again and a window pops telling me that an application has already started. Bare with me because I am an absolute noob when it comes to PC gaming. I had problems running Halo 2 and got it to work, but failed miserably with Gears.
My PC stats are:
Hewlett-Packard 4.3 rating for Windows Experience Index AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 440 Processor 3.00 GHZ 4 GiGs of installed RAM (3.74 usable) Windows Vista 64 bit OS
I tried downloading the patches but got this message for each patch
"Old file not found.Howewer,a file of the same name was found. No update done because files do not mach."
I also tried running as an administrator but nothing happens. any suggestions?
According to the official Gears of War PC-Epic forums....
