I can play the old Diablo by Blizzard and Microsoft's Age of Empires. However when I try to play Pirate Hunter by Ascaron I get the following error: c:\Program Files\Pirate Hunter.exe has caused an error and in the error report I see D3DERR_not available...
When I try to play Empire Earth by Sierra I get the following error: c:\document~1\owner\locals~1\temp\48ff_appcompat.txt
In the error report I found fault address: 0x00006f8e
In the Windows troubleshooting guide I found the following:c0000005 at address00866F8e (low level engine) GERasterizer_GetRastlerizer and Faulting application empire earth.exe version 0.0.0.0 faulting module low level engine.dll, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x00006f8e (not a techie, this is all Greek to me)
When I try to play Subcommand by Electronic Arts it will not show any images in the 3D sub screen on the monitor, otherwise seems to work ok.
I ran dxdiag and it shows directx 9.0c as being installed. Under files tab in the notes it says No Problems Found, in the display notes it has:
DirectDraw acceleration Not available
Direct 3D acceleration Not available
AGP Texture accelearation Not available
I ran the direct draw test, sound test and music test and all passed.
I have a new eMachines t6212 with XP SP2, Ati Radeon X200 IGP, AMD Athlon 64 3200 and whatever else comes with it when you get it from a Big Box store. Have not added RAM or upgraded the Video card.
I have no idea what is going on here, but I suspect I might not have the complete Directx file or incompatable video card. What can I do next?
