    I'm getting really annoied here. I try to play multiplayer games on the Zone and get nowhere with it. The screen goes black, flickers white and puts me back into the rooms section. Anyways, talking to their "tech" guys, they told me it is a video problem and Direct X problem. I downloaded updated drivers for my NVIDIA GeForce 2MX200 card and when trying to install the newest Direct X it said it couldn't install it onto my system.

    Please help

    Well after uninstalling and then reinstalling it, I tried to open the game itself. FYI, it's Rogue Spear. Anyway, it wouldn't open, doing exactly what it was doing on the Zone.

    I guess I'll just have to stick with it's add-ons Urban Ops and Covert Ops.

    Thanks for the reply. :)
