Work-around for Vista 64 Graphics/Text Corruption

---QUOTATION---
Okay people...while searching for fixes I found a post by some German dude... Fact is the game's graphics mess up if you've got more than 2 GB's of ram so here's the solution:
(Translating it from German please excuse the mistakes)

1. In the Start menu go to " Run " then run the program " MSCONFIG ".

2. In the new pop-up go to the second flap called " Start " and then press "Advanced Options".

3. Tick the box on the right side of the new pop that says something like "Maximum Memory" and set it to a max of 2000 or lower.

4. Save and restart.

5. Now you will notice that when you're running HoAE you can't see the Cinematics so now go to options and set it to 16 bit colours.

6. Restart HoAE and it should work.

At least it did for me. If you want to use your full ram again all you gotta do is go back to " msconfig" and untick the "max memory" box.

This worked for me. I didn't have to do #5 either - could see the cinematics, no problem. Also, on Vista-64 the second tab in MSCONFIG is "Boot" not "Start." This also eliminates that AGP error.
