An error comes up saying "You computers driver was not tested with this game.
A newer or more compatible version may be available. You must update your
driver."

Ive tried updating windows which is what my computers support told me to do
but it didnt help. If anyone knows anything please help me.

I went to your website and it appeared very helpful but my parents would
never let me delete any current existing driver on my computer to install the
updated version. Thank you for the help though.

Hi Gorgerwert,

You should explain to your parents the need to update your driver:
- The game will not work otherwise. Rolling back drivers is a built
in feature of Windows XP and there is also a System restore feature.

You already upgraded your DirectX to 9.0c which is a much more
major upgrade than the Video drivers will be.
