Best answer for this?

I have Vista too, and before, when I started playing this on Vista, it had that Split-Screen effect. I know what you mean. Where, say the menu, the left side of the menu is actually on the right, and the right is on the left.

I guess all I can say is, the way to fix this is to update your graphics card driver to it's highest, and on-top of that, update to Vista Service Pack 1. Also, I use Home Premium. I imagine you use that too, right?

Well, if not, I'd say it would be your best bet to play Dune2k properly, if you change to Home Premium, or I suspect Ultimate, but I doubt many people would want to pay big bucks for that. So, Home Premium Service Pack 1 is your best bet, and definitely able to play D2k. Also, make sure you have v1.06 Patch installed, it should be on the site here somewhere.

Good hunting and playing.

That's odd. What gfx card do you have? That can also be a factor. You need to make sure that that particular brand is playable on D2k. Also, by any, are you running under Administrator Privelages or just a limited account under Vista? The best thing to do really is both install and run under the limited account, that's at least what I did and do.

If you can, disable visual themes too, and then try it. If that doesn't work, then I have no clue what else to try. I am sorry I can' be much more help.
