  • Trouble with X

    I bought the Mercenaries 2 game today.

    I installed it, all went well. I run the game and it tells me I need a shader 3 capable video card.

    I have a ATI radeon X800 video card. I know the requirements say that I should have a radeon x1600, but there are alot of games my computer has been able to play even when it says I need a better card.

    What I want to know is if there is anything I can do besides buy the x1600. Maybe there are some drivers I can get or something.

    i doubt it man. just get a new card! they're not too expensive and it will work out better in the long run.

      that card is pretty old man, time to upgrade. The card does not support Shader Model 3.0 but the game may have a way to use SM 2.

        Yeah have you tried reducing all the graphic options to minimal and seeing if you can play it then ?

          The game does not even load, it minimizes to the error message.

          The Radeom x1600 is only $49 on overstock.com but I don't have the money to be spending on computer stuff right now.

            dunno if these help any, but if you feel compelled, do some searching around on Newegg.com.

            Cheapest site i know of. I bought my $1200 PC on that site so its reliable too.

              You can find a X1800 and X1900 for cheap now I have the X1800 512mb and it runs most games fine.
