Hi there!

I downloaded the demo version today, and then appears the Big Download logo, some text about Lucas Arts (Lucas Arts logo doesn't appear) and the it seems to load, because I hear sound, and I can use the mouse... but, I only see dark. I mean, nothing appears except for the mouse icon...

I can't find on the Internet the requirements, the pages I saw, only says: 2.0 GHZ, 512 MB RAM and 64 MB Video.

Here's the DxDiag.

    Then, If you read the DXDiag, You'll find that I reach the requirements. And so, the problem continues.

    Thanks for posting anyway =)

    That graphics chip actually only has DirectX 7 Hardware support (page 32).
    Besides that its 3D Performance is extremely low. It is 6 Year old onboard graphics after all.

    There are some driver updates for your system though, but i doubt they'll get the game running without a decent graphics card.

  • You were right =/ I suppose it's time get serious and buy a new computer for real this time. Problem solved then.

    Thank you very much!
