  1. ok, problem with halo pc, when i start it up this message appears:



    A problem occured initializing Direct3D. Hardware acceleration may be disabled, please run DXDIAG.

    Machine info: 1800MHz, 512MB, 256 ATI Radeon 9600 (0x4152)

    (I am running HALO PC custom edition, but the same error appears for regular Halo PC.

    WTF?!!

    and yes i have ran DXDIAG everything is fine, i have tried the 3 latest drivers for my GFX card (including 3rd party omega software)

    these are my sys specs:

    AMD sempron 3100+
    512mb RAM
    256MB ATI Radeon 9600

    I have ran these games without any problems what so ever:

    Call of duty II
    Path of Neo
    Quake 4
    NFS: Most wanted

    all these games are new out and undoubtidly have a higher min req than Halo PC.

    please try and help, this problem has been ongoing for allmost 1 1/2 years.

    cheers, Luke.
