    Xfire In Game messaging does not work for me at all. Why?

    There are a number of factors that allow Xfire to run along with your games and send and receive messages from within the game. Things to check on your system are as follows:
    What OS? what does that mean?

    Xfire In-Game messaging is currently only supported on Windows Vista, XP and 2000. If you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista or XP, some games will run in 64-bit mode and Xfire will not be able to detect them at all.
    i got XP
    What Xfire Skin?
    Some older User created skins do not have the latest In-Game support if any at all. The Xfire skin (default), Standard and Combat skins were created and tested by Xfire and always guaranteed to work with Xfire In-Game.
    i got a few Clean X,Doom 3 etc...but i changed it to defult as it says

    What game is not working?
    Is this game on the Supported Games page? (Currently over 200 with In Game support)

    Is the game on your Xfire Tools | Launch menu and can it be launched from there? yes still doesnt work

    What is your key bind set to? (Tools> Options> Chat tab.)
    what it is normally scroll lock+x

    Is In Game messaging enabled? (Tools> Options> Chat tab. Requires Exit and restart of Xfire.)

    Can this game be run in different render modes? (Example: CS 1.6 runs in both OGL and D3D9)

    i dont so it doesnt let me change it it says D3D9 (ive been told thats right)

    If so, what renderer are you running?

    Are you running Fraps?
    Fraps is a software video recording application. Older versions did not work well with OGL games and Xfire which could cause low fps or lockups. If you are running newer versions of Fraps, Xfire will detect it and not hook into your game. This will cause XIG and Screenshots to stop functioning

    Are you running a “No CD” patch or a mod to launch the game?
    no its stright from cd plus with the new patch

    If your game is using a different .exe to launch the game, there is a possibility that Xfire will not detect it.
    unsure :S i think its .exe...would normally be?

    Does Xfire In-Game work for any of your other games?
    cant play any other games (another problem i have)

    What video card are you using?
    radeon 9600
    What driver version for the video card?
    teh lateist

    What version of DirectX?
