I doubt that you cant find the answer on this site. In the past few weeks I explained how the game work to several people.

Here's the link.


The patch that nightbird gave only works for the demo. That is if you have a voodoo 4/5. I guess you have one of those considdering the rest of your computerspecs. Since Amigamerlin still doesnt have a patch for the full version you will have to use 3danalyze. In the link everything is explained. 3danalyze can be downloaded here

good luck

ps. If you have more than 32 mb of video memory its a voodoo 4 or better. If its just 16 mb its a voodoo 3 and than i dont have a solution for your problem.

@ Maria73

To find out what graphic card is in your PC I suggest you download Everest Home Edition, you can find it here :
Under DISPLAY/GPU you can find infos about the display adapter.
