Yea I'm new here. I would like some help for the PC game, Spore. My graphic card is ATI Radeon 9200, and the minimum spec for Spore is:

PC System Requirements:

Windows XP/Vista
2.0 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
XP: 512 MB RAM / Vista: 768 MB RAM
At least 300 MB of hard drive space for installation, plus additional space for created creatures. (190 MB for the Trial Edition)
A 128 MB Video Card, with support for Pixel Shader 2.0*
For computers using built-in graphics chipsets, the game requires at least an Intel Integrated Chipset GMA 950 or Dual 2.0GHz CPUs, or 1.7GHz Core 2 Duo, or equivalent

Supported Video Cards

ATI Radeon(TM) series

9500, 9600, 9800
X300, X600, X700, X800, X850
X1300, X1600, X1800, X1900, X1950
2400, 2600, 2900, 3650, 3850

I'm using a Windows XP. The only thing I was missing, was the graphic card cannot handle the minimum spec's for the game (since ATI Radeon 9200 is not on the list), and I get an error message, saying: "the game could not run". So I tried 3D anaylze, and I managed to make the game run; but I can only see my cursor, and backround music. But the entire backround was black. Even after 5 mins, I see nothing but a black screen, except the music, and cursor. My pixel shader is 1.4, and the minimum was 2.0. Can anyone help me please? It's a very basic game, that does not require a high/expensive graphic card. Also, do not tell me to buy a new one. I cannot buy it yet, until I'm sure 3Danalyze will work. Thanks.

The only way to be sure that the game will not work in your system is to try with all possible combination of 3DAnalyze settings.
If it will not work, you can sell your card and buy a more powerful used card.

my PC:
AMD Athlon64 3200+ - ASUS K8V-Deluxe - 1GB DDR400 - 3DFX Voodoo 5 5500 PCI

Can you please tell me some combonations I should try? The first time I used, was checked 'emulate HW TnL caps' 'emulate other DX8.1 caps' and 'emulate pixel shader caps.'

Since I just started 3Danalyze... I do not know much, and I have read the guide. Still, all I need to fix is the black screen. I cannot see anything. It works, but just the black screen. Thats all.

You should uncheck HW T&L and DX8.1 caps, and check all pixel shader's options
