Sorry about spam forum went weird lol

Ok not using DAoX or DAoCWin?

Sounds like a gfx issue like Flim suggested possibly need newer drivers for your gfx card which can be found there:

http://www.nvidia.com

Menu at the top

Make sure u uninstall the other drivers first by going to the control panel on your start menu-add/remove programs-remove the drivers ur find in the list

it will ask u to restart u will load back up with a horrible looking screen it will locate ur gfx card and u then should be ok to locate the drivers and install if they are a zip when u download them just unzip them to a folder and then on the hardware install locate that folder and voila installed

If you have a GeForce 2+ etc

Oh and tell me what happens when u reinstall

:( Theres ur problem, sorry mate but u need to get a GeForce 2+ to actually be able to play it I believe, although I could be wrong but tbh I have no idea what a Trident Blade3D is?

Here's what Mythic have to say about it



Shrouded Isles FAQ

What are the system requirements?

In order to play Shrouded Isles, you'll need a current-generation 3D accelerated video card that supports the new DirectX 8.1 feature set. Our plan is to support all GeForce 2-4 cards (including MXs), as well as other DX8-compatible cards. However, the more advanced graphical features will probably only work on the current generation of GeForce 3/4 cards (as well as cards from other manufacturers that fully support DX 8). If you don't have a current-generation cards, you'll be able to play the expansion, but you won't see many of the graphical upgrades. For complete information on system requirements for Dark Age of Camelot: Shrouded Isles, visit our support website at http://www.support.darkageofcamelot.com

Probably best to check there but I am not sure if that card supports SI

Hope so, heres to hoping let us know what you find out, and don't forget to make a post on Rightnow and the guys will probably be able to help you to

if you're going for a new card - get a geforce 3Ti (cheap) or a geforce 4Ti (expensive)

a 2MX is pish, and a 4MX will run fast but not give you the water/shadows etc. :(

You may not have to buy a new computer, check to see if your machine has a built in graphics card, or one that is in one of the slots that can be removed. If it is in the slots then maybe consider buying a new graphics card to keep you going til you can afford a new PC.

You need to check whether you have an AGP slot or PCI only and buy the appropriate one.

A cheap card to consider might be a geforce4 mx, you can get them for about £50ish now. I wouldnt suggest getting a card any better than this as your PC wont really make use of it.

Shops that sell them

if you have anyone locally that has SI you can get them to create an inconnu type or a disciple and move them to the homelands...

then you can log them in on normal client :)

or just level up a fighter and go become a reaver :) as long as you've activated you can create them.

(still can't go exploring tho :()

and don't get a 4MX - get a Geforce 3Ti from dabs.com - they're 60 quid and will have the water etc. bummer to find them anywhere though :) looks like only dabs do them.

asi said in my FIRST post :) "".. was a error message.. didnt give a explination just the erorr box, """

it was just a box that said error. phoned up the company i bought me cpu from they said for 400 quid i can get a upgrade to 2gig proccesor 512mb ram . and a GeForce4 gfx card and they all able to be upgraded in future if i needed to . cos aparantly atm the cm i have cant be upgraded cos they all integrated internal parts or summin.. so £400 needs to be saved, see you in Caer Sidi soon untill then back to me friar n sorc in classic :(

I wouldnt always believe the someone who can sell you a new PC on whether you can upgrade your old one. They might just be trying to make a sale.

It is very easy for you to check whether your graphics card is intergrated or not. Just look on the back and see where your monitor plugs into, if it is in one of the slots then chances are it isnt intergrated (take the case of for a better look if so)
