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.

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.
