dude, i think the problem is , the video card memory that is required for the game to run is not available in your system, check the game compatibility guide, verify it with your system video card dedicated memory..
If your motherboard has an AGP expansion slot the any AGP video card will work. There are a large range of makes and models with different performances from low end to high performance models. I suggest you Google search for AGP graphics cards and check out the specification and prices. Some computer games require high performance graphics cards and if you are into these games then check out the graphics card requirements for these games.
Have you tried replacing your monitor or lcd with a higher resolution or configuration? If not please do so. Because even thou you have a high graphics card but your monitor or lcd does not support your hardware requirements, it won't work at all. Try using an LCD with HDMI port or a higher model of LCD that are applicable in watching videos or playing games.
The drivers for the integrated video controller is on the CD that came with the motherboard, but that is most likely not the problem. Most newer hi-res games require much more sophisticated graphic chips than are normally used on motherboards. It may require hardware support for shading and other calculation-intensive operations that would require an add-in video card designed specifically for those purposes. Many also require a minumum of 256MB (or more) of video memory. You should check the documentation that came with the game to find out exactly what its video requirements are.
If that isn't the case, report back with the exact error message you are getting.
To make a long story short, the answer is no. Games that require 64mb VGA won't work with your hardware. drivers or software won't fix that only a hardware upgrade will do it. Plus s3 brand cards are notorious for bad driver support.
It all depends what kind of games you wish to play, you can probably play all the older games like Quake or Half-Life or older than 1997 just fine on your system with that video card. But you won't be able to play almost any of the newer 3d games out there. If you want to play new games like Battlefield 2 for example, you would at least need a new Nvidia or ATI brand video card on a brand new computer.
If you purchase a game that requires certain video requirements, you either have to take the game back, or purchase the new video card. Sorry, but those are the evils of the software vs. hardware world. Software gets more advanced, then it becomes quite expensive for the end user.
First of all, you should not even mention that is a cracked version, I will fake I did not hear that. I am sure you installed the pirate version only to test it on your computer, and you will buy the original if this works.
Regarding the games here are the specification:
Minimum System Requirements: You must
have these minimum system specifications for the game to function
correctly. We do not provide support for configurations that do not
meet the minimum requirements.
Operating System: Microsoft Windows® 2000/XP (Windows 95/98/ME/NT Not Supported)
CPU: Pentium 4 1.5Ghz or Athlon XP Equivalent
Graphics: 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible video card which supports Hardware TnL and Pixel Shader 2.0 (GeForce FX / Radeon 9500 or higher)
Sound: 100% DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card
DVD-Rom: Quad-speed (4x) Dvd-Rom Drive
Hard Drive: 5.0GB free disk space
Input Devices: 100% Windows 2000/XP compatible Mouse and Keyboard (Gamepads and controller are not supported)
Recommended System requirements:
CPU: Pentium 4 2.4Ghz or Athlon XP/64-bit equivalent
Graphics: ATI X800 series, Nvidia GeForce 6800 series or higher video card
This game requires a CPU of at least 2.4 Ghz and a powerful video card, such as ATI X800 series, Nvidia GeForce 6800 series or higher.
You also need DirectX 9.0c installed, that may be the reason why it does not start. Try downloading DirectX 9.0c here, if it does not work, then, providing that CPU is good enough, you will need to upgrade video adapter or get a new computer.
Sometimes you need an overpowered computer to play latest games, standard computers are usually not powerful enough for new games, that is the reason why they invented Xbox and PS. See here my favourite computer for gaming.
