Verfied fix for NVidia related video issues
I am very happy to announce there appears to be a 100% working fix for the crazy video problem that occurs on GeForce 6 and 7 series (and some FX)cards. It's so amazingly simple I am upset we did not find this first. Fellow admin and tech support guru, Intrepid_Soul, got a support e-mail from a user suggesting a possible fix. I tried it on my system running a GF 6200 and it worked! I have not verified this on any other GF card, but I'm going to try and borrow a couple people from our QA department to check for me.
Ok, now, on to the fix. First you need to make sure the game is installed (duh) and you need to have the ShellShock_Nam67 folder in your My Documents directory. If you don't have one, start the game up and go into the first mission. Then quit, save, and close the game. Then open the Shellshock_Nam67 folder in My Documents and open the TOD_PC file. Find the option "PostRenderEffects" to Off. Then save the file and close it, then fire up the game. Presto Chango, the game should work fine now! If you experience and odd sound issues you should try settings 3D Sound to off as well.
Big Thanks to Brian for sending this to us!
...and yes I know there are probably several people out there that knew of this fix. I figured I'd just make the knowledge a bit more accessible. Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good...eh...morning.

I just installed it myself and needed this fix. I wonder though, do we miss out on any improved graphics by disabling that option ?
And coincidentally, "Happy Holidays" indeed - specifically Merry Christmas.
