    the game works fine on other comps except mine.so i tried rolling the driver back to old reliable 45.23 and the flickering stopped.then the Theif demo started acting strange.the charachter would move on his own like if i had a joystick pushed forward, but i dont have a joystock installed at all..anyway thanks for the help
