Hmm, been trying to run daoc trial while waiting to get my account back. Sadly I am getting as titled due to either directx or my gfx drivers (old radeon 9800xt). Usual renderer creation failed problem. Can someone remind me what it is i do to fix that problem. I tryed uninstalling and reinstalling both but I seem to be getting directx installation failed due to either missing files or something I don't understand in the windows directory for the directxerror.log.

windows doesn't seem to be much help when looking through the trouble shooting.

I did set it up in nQQb mode as I don't know much about this card.
Can anyone help? - don't need to format again :p

Does any one know if AMD/ATI 7.11 catalyst has support for AGP? I've been doing some reading and it seems the 7.7 version was the solution for previous drivers as far back as 31/10/2007.

Seems the lack of support and openGL using something else proves that this problem will occur and it's not isolated to just my card but even later/better cards than mine.

Problem solved xD

Heh stlong reading and some good trial and error resulted in this -

The 7.11 catalyst does not fully support AGP for those that wish to know. You cannot revert direct x 9 c and the 7.9 catalyst aint that much cop either. Best reverting to the 7.7 catalyst as it is the most stable for AGP cards on those gimps like meh that are using an old comp and is too staines to buy a new one :p

Tip :-

Uninstall 7.11
Download the display driver and the catalyst for 7.7
Install display driver
Install catalyst
Reinstall directx (november current edition)

Now u got worxxor gfx

:england:
