Vista Settings for Snoopy Vs. The Red Barron

Posted by David Leslie on March 2, 2007

OK, after not having much luck getting Snoopy Vs. the Red Barron to run well with the Windows Vista betas, I can now report success.


Here are my settings for the game so that it plays just as well under Vista (in my case Ultimate) as it does under XP SP2.


Set the Compatibility tab as follows

  1. Put a check in the “Run this program in compatibility mode for:” can select Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
  2. Put a check in each of the following Settings
    1. Disable Visual Themes
    2. Disable desktop composition
    3. Run this program

Oh, and make sure you have the DirectX 9.0c drivers installed. Vista only ships with DX 10 so you’ll need to download them.
