    what kind of graphics card do you have? i reccomend that you update your graphics drivers and retry using openGL.

    That means that your graphics card isnĀ“t supported by the game.
    Please tell us your graphics card maker and model.

    upgrade to a better card that can handle the desired applications. if you tell us the specs of your system and what other games you play i can reccomend a particular card.
