Allegiance: Description of the Troubleshooting Shortcuts

SUMMARY

This article describes the troubleshooting shortcuts that are installed
by Allegiance.

MORE INFORMATION

When you install Allegiance, several troubleshooting shortcuts
are installed in the Allegiance folder. The default location of
the Allegiance folder is:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Allegiance
You can use these troubleshooting shortcuts to troubleshoot problems that you may encounter when you play the game.

Run Allegiance in Safe Mode

Start Allegiance with this shortcut if you are unable to start Allegiance successfully, or if the program quits unexpectedly during play.

When you play Allegiance in Safe mode, the game movie and sound are turned off, and the game runs in Software mode, which automatically turns off all high-end Heads-Up Display (HUD) graphics in the game.

Run Allegiance in Software Mode

Start Allegiance with this shortcut if any of the following conditions are true:

  • The video adapter installed in your computer does not support
    3D acceleration.
  • You are experiencing problems with your 3D accelerator.
  • Allegiance has quit unexpectedly, and you are attempting to
    isolate 3D acceleration as the cause.
NOTE: Software mode automatically turns off all high-end HUD graphics in the game.

Run Allegiance in Window Mode

Start Allegiance with this shortcut to play Allegiance in a window on the desktop. In Window mode, you can manage other programs that are open on the desktop.


NOTE: To use Window mode, the video adapter installed in your computer must support Window mode. In addition, Window mode usually causes Allegiance to run slower than in full-screen mode.

Run Allegiance with Checkfiles

Start Allegiance with this shortcut to auto-update Allegiance, a process that ensures that all of your Allegiance files are up-to-date when you connect to Zone.com.

Only run Allegiance in this mode if for some reason you think that your game is not being correctly auto-updated, because Checkfiles mode increases the time it takes to navigate to the Games List.

Run Allegiance with No Movies

Start Allegiance with this shortcut to skip the introductory movie. This command is useful if you experience any problems running the movie.

Run Allegiance with No Sound

Start Allegiance with this shortcut to play Allegiance without any sound. This command is useful if you experience problems running the game with your sound card enabled.
