    I dunno if your integrated graphics can cut it on that game. I just had to buy a new graphics card myself for Half Life 2, and my integrated graphics was a 128mb radeon x300. Any chance of going for an upgrade?

    There's this thread here: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic19194.html
    And this one: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic46715.html
    but they seem to be the only ones that don't have the response "get a new graphics card" There was one a while back where I'm sure someone told him to download something that would help, but do you think I can find it when I need it? :mad: :haha: You can get a pretty good graphics card for less than $100 on newegg, but I'm not pushing or anything. It's a pity as well 'cause the rest of your system is good.

    Your integrated graphics may not have the TnL requirements for the game, so you need a new graphics card. I can recommend a really cheap one for you if you want...what motherboard do you have?

    To figure out your motherboard type, brand, model, etc., talk to the computer manufacturer. They can also give you a good graphics card. I have some recommendations here at a good price:

    AGP 4x/8x video card

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130262

    PCI graphics card.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814139166

    PCI-E 16x video

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130260

    All less than $100 :)

    For the DirectX problem, what DirectX version do you have?The game requires DirectX 8.1, so anything lower will cause problems.

    I have no patches for my battlefield1942 and it works fine. As for the guy with the graphics problem, I found the latest directX version for download. its free:


    DirectX 9.0c(more than required for battlefield 1942)

    You have to click a few things, I didnt because I already have directX 9.0c :)

    Just click the link and follow onscreen instructions. :)
