I got Warhead off of Steam also, 3 days ago. I hav'nt been able to play yet because it crashes after the first cut scene every time I try. I am going to work on it this weekend. I got the error one time that the display adapter failed so it's an Nvidia issue I'm sure. I will reply back to you with any info if I get it fixed.

Hmm odd... I wonder if the resolution is set too high? Anyway for now I'd recommend downloading Driver Sweeper, boot into safe mode, and delete all your display drivers then reboot and reinstall them.

nah i played with the resolution in game and desktop nothing works. idk makes no sense that crysis wars works and crysis warhead does not but ill give it a couple of days then maybe i will try driver sweeper but i got 14 others games installed that work just fine so who knows lol
