Hope this is the right forum for this post, but I cannot get EQ2 to run
without the following error. "NVIDIA GeForce MX440 requires 4 texture
units" I installed the update driver and still no luck. Anyone have any
ideas?

More about : eq2

Get a new card.

I had the same card -- and the same problem. There's plenty of cards
in the 100 dollar range which will run EQ2 fine.

Get another video card -- yours can't run EQ2. You're just
shy of the minimum requirements.

As others have posted, you need to get a new graphics card, the one you have
does not contain the necessary pixel/vertex shaders that are needed to run
the game.

I have a GeForce 4 Ti and it can run EQ2 but if you're in the market for a
new card I would get one of the higher FX cards or the new ATI cards.

Yeah, I was going to take a wild stab in the dark there myself...

Others have already said it, get a new video card. Personally, I like
the ATi 9800 Pro, it's reasonably priced, and great bang for the buck.
If you don't mind spending big bucks, go for the top end NVidia or ATi
card.

If you dig deeply enough into the online help, there's a note on the list of
supported cards. The GeForce4 MX chipsets are not supported.

I printed the list before going shopping. I remember when the MX chipsets
were about to hit the market, the DOOM3 developers were advising people to
avoid them since they're really a step backwards, more like a GeForce2.

That little blurb on the box, DirectX 9.0 support, is the hitch. The
chipset supports 7.0 and some of 8.0.
