Hi Guys, its been a long time sense i've played this game, and my computer used to be able to play it, HOWEVER, 1 year later it cant!

When ever i start up the game, the screen goes black (as if starting the game) and then an error comes up saying "Cannot create 3d3 device, please check DirectX or display card driver"

Currently i have DirectX 9.0c. Not sure about the display card driver.
1. in run>dxdiag>display, some people have told me to check if some things are enables, BUT a problem.
Under DirectX Features it says

DirectDraw Acceleration: Not Available (Here in gray it says DISABLE, unclickable)
Direct3D Acceleration: Not Available (Here in gray it says DISABLE, unclickable)
AGP Texture Acceleration: Not Available (Here in gray it says DISABLE, unclickable)


Under the drivers menu it says

Main Driver: SiSGRV.dll
Version: 6.14.0010.3630 (english)
Date: 3/9/2006/20:30:40
WHQL Logo'd: n/a
Mini VDD: sisgrp.sys
VDD: n/a
DDI Version: unknown

I have done Test DirectDraw, outcome was sucessful
I Cant test Direct3D because its in gray and unclickable.

I have tried downloading DirectX 10 but it wont let me (it says it has it download and up for use) but dxdiag still says DirectX 9.0c


Can anyone please help me? I really want to play this game. Thanks

I may have missed it...but what game is it that you refer to?

What is the video card or video chip?

If boxmaker (name brand) system, system manufacturer and model?

And the O/S is XP?

Does your system meet the minimal requirements for the game?

Does this game have a website with support function?

If you want to try updating your video drivers, http://esupport.sony.com/perl/swu-list.pl?...teType=Original
