Well I tryed to install the Graal v5 client but heyy guess what problem that I had when the Graal v4 client was released.

GRAPHICS!

I never had DirectX so I downloaded it.. it might be this temporary crappy computer.

It has the following Graphics Card;

NeoMagic MagicMedia 256 AV (Laptop:IBM ThinkPad,390E)

That Laptop's Name would probably explain the problems, since its about 8+ years old.

Can anyone help me find out a proper graphics driver to fix my problems, or atleast put me out of my misery and tell me it's impossible to see the graphics correct with this graphics card.

Windows Update is fairly efficient at finding and providing updates for the hardware of your comp :o

Ahh...unsuported by Microsoft now, unfortunately. Try running dxdiag.exe : might tell you some information about your graphics card.

If your model name, etc is right.

Here is your video card driver.

Put your monitor in 16-bit mode.

rebooted, went into 16-bit color mode, still no change. When I start graal it says "Rendering problem-no hardware graphics to support your graphics card."

Did you actually install the driver or just unzip it?

I just unzipped it and tried to install but most of them require the driver installation CD, I'm really bad at doing these kinds of stuff haha, so I'm hoping someone could help me through the process. My computer tells me there is a video card/DIsplay adapter but I don't know how to properly install for my driver. Do I have to download the driver with the name of my driver, NeoMagic MagicMedia #AV or can I just download any NeoMagic driver (Latest ones maybe?)
