View Full Version : Graal2k1- DirectX problem


Correction

I cannot get on Graal 2001 because a message pops up saying "Unsupported DirectX type or Wrong Driver!" The only way I can play is if I go into options and check the box marked "Don't use DirectX7" However, when I do this, I cannot see lighting or day/night effects. I have DirectX8 and I do not understand why Graal would not work with it. Please help me find out whats wrong or help me find a way to downgrade to DirectX7. I have tried downgrading but when I run the install for DirectX7 it says "A newer version of DirectX is already installed on this computer. Installation will not continue" Is there any way I can override that or somehow Downgrade? Please help!

you have to go into the registry and edit te version numbers for directx, or get a better video card ;)

It's done that to me before but I've always been able to get Graal to work later.

Try getting an updated version of your driver.

No, you need a new driver for your lightbulb in the cieling. Yes, your video card's driver.

Listen, dude, I have a Voodoo3. You need to get the updated drivers for light effects to work. Even then, they move *REALLY* slow!

...You must find the driver that takes 3 hours to find, 1 hour to install, and you find out you've installed the wrong version, you call tech supprt and get to fix your whacked out monitor, you install correct version, and after 3 weeks you find out graal doesn't work even with the updated drivers....in other words: stefan is lying, updtaed drivers dont do crap for graal

Takes me 3 minutes to find the driver, around 30 minutes to download and install it, and I know I installed the right version. After 3 weeks I find out Graal works with my drivers, it just moves really really slow in window mode, and Stefan won't help the problem :(

In other words: Updated drivers work on DirectX (and therefore Graal). So there. :D
