Graphics Card - Rome Total War

  mthestrong 20:57 28 Apr 2005

My system is an HP computer with Athlon 3200, 512mb Ram, 80 GB hard disk and ATI Radeon 9200 SE with 128mb. The game frequently crashes. The problem appears to be with the 3D accelerator. How do I solve the problem?

mthestrong, I'm surprised you can get the game to run at all as according to click here you need a graphics card that supports DirectX 9.0b. Your card supports up to DirectX 8.

Are you grapics card drivers up to date? click here Ati Official site or better still with your card click here Omega drivers. Could you be a bit more specific on the nature of the "crashes".

Try the Ati control panel and click on the Smart Gart tab.In there click on the "Retest All" button.You will need to reboot your pc after this.See what happens.
