Question about VisionTek Xtasy 9100 Graphic Card

1 Answer

3D acceleration I downloaded and have the licensed version of a game called the Art of Murder - FBI investigation... I have all the updated ATI drivers in Windows XP... Of course I am running a Vision Xtasy 9100 AGP card my mother baord has no onbooard graphics chip, and is a Nvidia, Nforce3 250, with a Sempron 2800+ AMD CPU... When you click the Run Icon for the game, a window appears for Game Settings, it has to do with the Video Card and Sound... In that window I get a message that my video card does not support 3d acceleration, and there are blank options for choosing a Video Card, and for setting the color options associated with the game itself.. The game has a DirectX folder within the (program) Game Folder.. I have tried to figure out ways to overide this dumb game settings window but with no success I have also all the proper DirectX compents installed, (all tho when I downloaded the game I had no choice but to install the newer packages for DirectX) and I have also ran a DirectX Diag... to check if the 3d is working and it does... LOL this has angered me beyond high blood pressure. I have ran other games with 3d Acceleration without any problems.. I do not undertsand why this one game is acting completely stupid... I have done internet searches for this problem with 3d acceleration but all I get is linux babble.... I cannot figure out what is going on.. I have set everything in Ati's Control Catalst for full 3d acceleration... Any and all suggestions would be great, I will try out anything outside what I have already done to get this game to work... Thank you!!!!!

    That may be the case with the game itself, I do not bother with meeting the requirements of the games I play or buy.. Usually what I have is decent enough, and until now I have not had any problems with games I buy or play..

    I guess I should ask is, has time caught up with the VisionTek Xtasy 9100 video card???
    The card is about 8 years old, it has stood the test of time.. But now with gaming companies pushing graphics to where they are now I wonder how much longer I can keep using the card... I know this video card was praised at the time it came out, and in many sites I have come across to this day, it is still respected as a break through video card and I guess there are many that would buy it, if I were to sell it...

    Everything is up to date as far as DirectX and the Drivers for the Video card.. My bother has a Nvadia Graphics card and the game will play on his system. The hardware requirements for this game are not specific, they just give out basic information on system requirements... It could very well be that the game maker did not give a specific list of Video Cards that are compatible with the game, and knowing my luck I got a video card that does not meet there list of video cards required... I pay attention and find out what I can about a games requirements so I know that I can play it...

    I also notice it seems the Nvadia Video cards are a constant for video game requirments, when it comes to video card compatibilty...
    I am somewhat computer savy, but I obviously do not "know itall" and it is always fun to get other opions and suggestions....
    Sorry for this being so long.... And thank you for any and all replies!!!

I need 3D accelerator

Direct3D is a component of Microsoft's DirectX graphics software and is one of the more commonly used graphics accelerators in PC gaming. Of course, before you can enjoy the benefits of Direct3D acceleration, you need to have that particular component enabled in DirectX. Fortunately for your gaming needs, enabling Direct3D acceleration is not an overly complicated process, and can be achieved in a matter of moments. Open the "Start" menu and type "dxdiag" into the Windows Live search box, then press "Enter." This will bring up the "DirectX Diagnostics" dialog box. Click the "Display" tab. Locate the "Direct3D Acceleration" entry. Click the "Enable" option next to the Direct3D entry. This will turn on Direct3D acceleration. You may need to restart your computer to make the changes effective. Hope this helps. Optimise your ATi graphics card's performance b>

Agp accelerator

If you have not already done so, download the Catalyst Control Center from ATI's website. This will include drivers and ATI's management interface, this should also give you 3D acceleration capability. If you are using a 32-bit Operating System like Vista, the driver is here" *Note from ATI: must use the ATI Catalyst 9.3 or earlier driver. This device is now considered a legacy device from ATI, so only use up to v9.3! Hope this helps.

If you do not see your graphics driver listed on this ATI link;

You'll have no choice but to download from this other site;,sh,1485,254,5,.html

The card is just too old. There are no updated drivers around.
Either of these two cards listed on this link can replace your old AGP 4x card;

DF.NET (Above), will charge you a fee to download the drivers you are looking for & there is no promise they will function correctly.
