I was trying to install the game, and it did,except thtat everytime I click on it to come up so I can play, these words come up: InitDIrectDraw().pSPrimaryCreateSurface()-Unable to create a DirectDraw Surface. Game is shutting down-DDERR_NODIRECTDRAWHW-a hardware only DirectDraw object creation was attempted but the driver did not support any hardware. I don't know what to do, can you help me be able to play the game?

Welcome [email protected] :D

Look around in the game settings and see if you can find a checkbox for "enable hardware acceleration". If so, be sure it's checked.

Also, make sure you have the latest version of DirectX, and the latest driver installed for your video card.
