No revelation of the GAME, OS or much else. But at least I can answer your question.

-> YES!

Your post is pretty much like yelling. No need for that.

In closing, did you look on http://www.google.com about this?

You will need to update your graphics card drivers. I am sorry the "moderator" couldn't answer your question for you. We just installed Hunting Unlimited 3 & it errored until we updated our drivers, even though it was a freshly installed graphics card. Hopefully that will work for you. Good luck!
