I have just bought call of duty 2 and installed it, I am not trying to play the game and I am having a bit of a problem, I keep getting this message and it will not load up.

Video card or driver does not support alpha blending

I dont know much about this side of the computer world and could do with a little bit of help, I think my graphics card is a NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro
but I am not 100% sure on that either, can anyone help me on how to check what my graphics card is then help to rectify my problem of starting this game and getting past this alpha blending problem

Thanks in advance...
Steve

Your video card looks like it doesn't support what COD2 is required to run on..

To find out what type of Video card you have

Ok please close all other programs. Please follow these instructions. right click On your desktop>properties>settings and under display it will display your video card.

Please write it down so we know the exact card.

Thanks for the quick reply, i can confirm the card i mentioned is the currect video card, isnt there any drivers i can try to use to rectify my problem? instead of going straight out and buying a new video card? I hear if u update your driver or something it might work,

please let me know, thanks.

Can you confirm that you are running Windows XP?

Your video card is TNT2 type. So that link above should work. That is the latest update for Nvida Drivers. Please read all instructions on how to install the new Driver.

The card isnt on the list which means that the game wont let itself play on it usually(its one of those games that is picky), that and the card is so slow that it would mean the game is almost unplayable. A driver update wouldnt help you as they havent released a new driver for that card in a few years now.

Im just wondering when I went to the site and i choose graphics card>GeForce And TNT2, wouldn't that be an update for one of his cards.


But yes that card is way out of date I never heard of it. I think it only has 64MB of Video Memory.

If you do decide to by a new Video Card make sure that your MotherBoard can handle it and make sure that is 128MB or 256MB of Video Memory.

The NVIDIA Setup programme could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware, setup will now exit.

Does this mean that my card must be v.poor?
