Please help me!, i recently bought a game called School Tycoon for my windows xp computer, as it looked like the type of game for me, i was assured it would work on my pc because a friend once brought it over and it worked perfectly after downloading.. I was using the same pc as i am now so it had the exact same specs, and they couldnt have just `suddenly` gotten worse, but now every time i launch the game it brings up an error message saying that my 3D card isnt good enough and the hardware needs accelerating... My hardware acceleration is on full so  dont know what to do, please help!

 

Thanks, _shadoweternal_

Hello _shadoweternal_, and :welcome:

I understand you're receiving that graphics error when trying to run [School Tycoon] from your PC, which you have successfully played it on before with no problems.  Did something change between the time you played this game and now (when you receive the error)?  For example, have you reformatted your PC for any reason (virus, OS upgrade, etc) during the time spent between trying to play the game?

It sounds to me like you may have forgotten to update your video card driver after a reformat, or perhaps there is a newer driver that it requires in order to play the game.  If you can confirm the video card driver is up to date and nothing else has changed with your PC, let us know and we will attempt to further troubleshoot this issue of yours.

 

 

Good luck!
