I'm not very good with computers. I recently bought Age of Empires 2 from ebay, and on the cover it says it doesn't work with vista... Yet i've seen people playing it on vista... I've looked around on google for at least 2 hours on how to fix it, yet no solutions work...
After installation, i open it and i always get this "'Could not initalize
graphics system. Make sure your video card and driver are compatible with
DirectDraw." ... How can i fix it!?
I don't know anyone else with the exact same problem, just simillarities.
My Specs are:
OS: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
CPU/Ram: 2.001 GHz / 2045 MB
Product: Toshiba / Satellite a200
I suggest you play around with the Compatibility Mode settings (not sure what they call it in Vista). It's a built-in feature that changes some settings to run older software. I managed to get a few older games working under XP this way.
