Question about Computers & Internet
According to the minimum system requirements listed on the box, your graphics solution, be it onboard or external to the motherboard, must be able to render DX7 (transform and lighting) instructions in hardware! The Intel 82845G does not, as you can see on Intel's website (http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/cs-011910.htm?iid=graphics+845main&). This cannot be fixed by a patch, it is a hardware limitation.
As for the VIA/S3 UniChrome IGP (or even the UniChrome IGP Pro), it, too, is less than ideal for playing even DX7 games. Starting on page 10 of this PDF manual for the PM800/PM880 (http://www.via.com.tw/en/downloads/whitepapers/chipsets/p4-series/chipsets_pm800-pm880.pdf) it talks about how wonderful the UniChrome IGP Pro is for everything. On page 11, however, it talks about VIA's S3ConfigD3D utility. Here's a quote:
S3ConfigD3D Direct3D Configuration Utility
The S3Config Direct3D configuration utility provides a way for the end-user to configure or toggle various Direct3D-related capabilities to compensate for differences in the requirements and behaviors of various Direct3D applications.
That paragraph should be a giant red flag that you will have a ton of work getting this integrated solution to play games. You can try the configuration utility to get DL to run on this, but I do not believe that it will be an easy task.
If you have a computer that meets the minimum requirements or you are not sure why it will not work on your computer, I will be happy to analyze your dxdiag files and make recommendations and try to help you.
1) Go to your start menu and click on Run
2) Type dxdiag in the box and click on OK
3) After the information loads up, click on save all information
4) Save the file to your desktop or a known location
This will save a text file of system information, you can send it to Jeremy@DreamCatcherGames.Com
If you have an Intel Graphics Card, please look at this post:
To identify your computer parts:
Click Start, click Run, type dxdiag in the Open, and then click OK.
In the System tab under System Information, look for Operating System to determine your Operating System.
In the System tab under System Information, look for Memory to determine your System RAM.
In the Display tab under Device, look for Name and Manufacturer to determine your Video Card. If the Name or Manufacturer is Intel, SiS, S3, or VIA, your computer has a graphics controller. Graphics controllers are not video cards and are not capable of running Dungeon Lords.
In the Sound under Device, look for Name, and under Driver, look for Provider to determine your Sound Card
