Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

After installing dungeon lords the screen blinks like it trying to open but then just closes


Answers :

Sir,

According to the minimum system requirements listed on the box, your\015\012graphics solution, be it onboard or external to the motherboard, must\015\012be able to render DX7 (transform and lighting) instructions in\015\012hardware! The Intel 82845G does not, as you can see on Intel's website\015\012(http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/cs-011910.htm?iid=graphics+845main&).\015\012This cannot be fixed by a patch, it is a hardware limitation.
\015\012
\015\012As for the VIA/S3 UniChrome IGP (or even the UniChrome IGP Pro), it,\015\012too, is less than ideal for playing even DX7 games. Starting on page 10\015\012of this PDF manual for the PM800/PM880\015\012(http://www.via.com.tw/en/downloads/whitepapers/chipsets/p4-series/chipsets_pm800-pm880.pdf)\015\012it talks about how wonderful the UniChrome IGP Pro is for everything.\015\012On page 11, however, it talks about VIA's S3ConfigD3D utility. Here's a\015\012quote:
\015\012
\015\012S3ConfigD3D Direct3D Configuration Utility
\015\012
\015\012The S3Config Direct3D configuration utility provides a way for the\015\012end-user to configure or toggle various Direct3D-related capabilities\015\012to compensate for differences in the requirements and behaviors of\015\012various Direct3D applications.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012That paragraph should be a giant red flag that you will have a ton of\015\012work getting this integrated solution to play games. You can try the\015\012configuration utility to get DL to run on this, but I do not believe\015\012that it will be an easy task.

If you have a computer that meets the minimum requirements or you are\015\012not sure why it will not work on your computer, I will be happy to\015\012analyze your dxdiag files and make recommendations and try to help you.
\015\012
\015\0121) Go to your start menu and click on Run
\015\0122) Type dxdiag in the box and click on OK
\015\0123) After the information loads up, click on save all information
\015\0124) Save the file to your desktop or a known location
\015\012
\015\012This will save a text file of system information, you can send it to [email protected]eamCatcherGames.Com
\015\012
\015\012If you have an Intel Graphics Card, please look at this post:
\015\012http://www.dreamcatchergames.com/forums/showthread.php?p=170558#post170558

To identify your computer parts:
\015\012
\015\012Click Start, click Run, type dxdiag in the Open, and then click OK.
\015\012In the System tab under System Information, look for Operating System to determine your Operating System.
\015\012In the System tab under System Information, look for Memory to determine your System RAM.
\015\012In the Display tab under Device, look for Name and Manufacturer to\015\012determine your Video Card. If the Name or Manufacturer is Intel, SiS,\015\012S3, or VIA, your computer has a graphics controller. Graphics\015\012controllers are not video cards and are not capable of running Dungeon\015\012Lords.
\015\012In the Sound under Device, look for Name, and under Driver, look for Provider to determine your Sound Card

Thanks
Good luck
