Ummm...Lego star wars...
What game is it?
I looked on the site - it just says "you can't play it", nothing about any patch....
Try downloading the latest patch for the game and your graphics card.

I don't think that I have a separate card, just an integrated graphics controller. On the Dell site, it says about my computer (assuming it's not been altered and is true to the orig specs). "Integrated Intel® Extreme graphics & 4X AGP Slot". The later game Lego Star Wars II: the original trilogy says on the box that it needs pixel shading, but it works just fine. I've also got a Prince of Persia game which comes up with a list of things it wants, says I don't have them all and might have problems, but it still plays.... I don't know why this game has to be so fascist about it - I don't mind not having all my pixels
What graphics card have you got, because the game needs pixel shading 1.1 support, and if your graphics doesn't have this, then I don't think that you can get the game to work, maybe the later games that you can play don't require this.

Yes, I'd already seen that - that's why I wasn't hopeful about there being a patch to make it "go". I just don't understand why the newer game, which also says it wants pixel shading (whatever that IS - I don't even KNOW ) still runs..... Obviously they've just programmed it that way.
Edit: Just found this on Eidos' site, doesn't look very promesing.

Probably. It seems quite odd to me that they would make it so that it wouldn't work on a "normal" computer - it's the sort of game parents or grandparents would buy for kids who don't have one of those super-dooper gaming computers, or "regular" people might buy...
Yep, it is odd that Lego Starwars 1 won't work but 2 does, maybe 2 is programed better?
Even if they were working or I get them working, I still won't care....
.......although, if they aren't working for you i doubt you really care.
Thanks, I actually managed to start 2 threads and am getting some helpful advice over in the Hardware section. I'm pretty sure I need an APG card, low-profile, compatible with 4x. Still researching....
As for getting a new graphics card, the first thing to do is check what free slots you have in your system, that will be key as to what card you can get. (Either PCI, APG or PCI-E)
No worries, thanks anyway.
Sorry the problem wasn't fixed.
