  • Hello Mike,

     

    Thanks for your post!

     

    Please let me know the model of your video adapter and the games involved in this issue.

     

    As I know, a few video card, for example some Intel products, will display the supportive games in the product page. If you can find such a page for your video adapter, please check the involved games in the list.

     

    Besides, thanks for sharing, Sama. Merry Christmas to both of you!

  • im guessing thats a DirectX10 issue
    windows vista runs DX10, and your videocard doesnt support it, so reinstall windows XP, or buy a new videocard

    atleast, im guessing this is it, correct me if im wrong
