Answers :

Of course we need the specks Taylor- and your graphics card should support directx 9. Unless you have some obscure onboard graphics card or are running win 98 or ur card is really old direct x 9 is supported by cards that were sold even 3-4 years ago.

NOW WHAT YOU CAN TRY IS: If you are on win xp and this funked up message shows up you can try running the gave in compatibility mode for win 2000. right click on the game file go to compatibility tab choose win 2000 in the dropdown apply and okay it. Try and run it again.

Cheers
rate if this does it- if its your low end hardware upgrade coz there is nothing any of us can do for low end hardware
