Hello connorneedshelp and welcome to G2G!

Unfortunately the Intel 82852/82855 gm/gme integrated graphics card doesn't support hardware Transform and Lighting which is required by the game. There may be patch that becomes available to allow the game to use the processor for transform and lighting but there might not be. The only definite way to get it working would be upgrading your graphics card.

Sorry about the delay I was having problems with an Exchange server at work.

According to your PM it's a tablet PC you're using, unfortunately graphics card on those can't be upgraded. You might try updating the graphics card driver just in case that helps but it's a long shot.

You can get the drivers from the Intel download center or the manufacturers website.
