AoE 2 on loading gives an error message that the graphics card needs to be checked and Directx8 + needs to be installed. The graphices card is new with up to date drives from Matrox and I have Directx9+ loaded.
Other games (EA) work perfectly well - what's the problem please????????????
That is very strange, are you using a cd install or a pirate copy? I have played ae2 on a matrox mga 200. Are you using XP and is it updated?
Thanks for the quick responcse. AoE is a genuine CD bought brand new. I have a brand new P650 Matrox AGP. I run XP Pro. Everything (drivers, Directx, XP) has been updated - I have spent hours on this just to keep the kids happy but no joy.
