nice anyways i did encounter a bug now it doesnt let me join singleplayer or online without freezing on loadingscreen basicly when it sends me to loadingscreen it either sends me to a frozen main menu or i end up in desktop and when i do that i tryed to click on the game window but it doesnt let me stay in it the first error is what happens most tho

i checked and it was already in win XP compatablity mode and i will run a test now with all permissions added in administration mode

i tested it and even with the patch installed INSTANT ACTION for singleplayer STILL doesnt work i doubt its because of WIN defender on cause ive given this game every perimission i know of  when i hit start it freezes in that menu and when i ran it without patch as far as i know it sent me to desktop and then after a few seconds of trying to click on the window the computer said i had to close the program
