GURUE28....one word man...thanks,
I bought a geforce3 Ti200 as an upgrade from a dying TNT2 and i was Pist when i found that i couldnt actually use the thing on direct3d games, couldnt even smile at a infinitely higher 3dmark score....
i followed what you did in the thread, updating the 4-in-1 drivers and more importantly getting that patch, and it hasnt been smoother...ever, my video card narrowly escaped a hammer attack thanks to that advise
so...if your having problems, read these words and do what they say ::
"nyway, I was starting to get pissy because Freelancer just came out and I couldn't run it, so I spent the entire day today trying to figure out how to fix this problem. First off, don't bother reformatting, because it won't fix anything. The problem is in the VIA 4-in-1 drivers. They need to be updated to the newest version and they can be found here: http://www.viaarena.com/?PageID=2.
There is also a patch file that needs to be downloaded and installed and it can be found here: http://pcbuyersguide.com/news/talkback/1007605948,64766,.shtml.
For the link I just gave you, you will see the words "beta patch" underlined on the page as the link to the actual patch. "
that is all,
