Cellfactor when it was released showcased the Ageia PhysX Engine, and how a game would benefit from a stand alone processor purely for the physix of a game, and to be quite honest it was a complete waste of time, Why? well NVIDIA already knew about this technology and planned to build it into there new next gen graphics card and let the GPU deal with the processing power a games physix needs.

NVIDIA Recently released there brand spanking new "Power Pack" which Finally unlocked the PhysX potential of the 8 - 9 and 200 series graphics cards, codenamed "The Force within" --- Click here to download
Alot of people have used this opportunity to retest the Cellfactor game but shocked to find the game refuses to play after installation often gaining the "Reality Engine - Fatal Error" message and refuses to go away.
Reinstalling the game or updating the DirectX doesn't work either, So why is it not working?
This issue has been solved after i personaly got fed up and after searching google and getting nowhere found the solution after trying to load "Reality Editor", my vista although fully upto date has not installed the "SDK .net framework 2.0" and this is the reason why the game refuses to work.
To download it click below:
Click here for the x86 version
Click here for the x64 version
Install that and the game shall now work perfectly fine.
Even after doing this and getting the game to load and work, you'll be angered to know that YOU STILL CANNOT PLAY THE AGEIA MAPS that were created for use with the PhysX card, i can't find a solution for getting around this either, so all in all, it was a complete waste of time even doing this in the first place.
The reason behind this is now for someone out there to unlock the maps for others to use, as soon as its possible i will update this blog :D
When i say you cannot play the Ageia maps i mean 3 out of the 5 maps are Blocked and cannot be played unless you have a AGEIA PhysX card installed.
