Sir,

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:
http://www.dreamcatchergames.com/forums/showthread.php?p=170558#post170558

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

Thanks
Good luck

Bitlord freezing pc


Kinda confused...If you cannot get your PC to boot up, how can Vuze still work? I suggest you boot up into Safe Mode, and uninstall Bit Lord. Then you can contact those folks and ask them why this happened to you.

Lords of Magic wont run


Many older games have problems running on newer systems, and while windows' compatibility modes can sometimes help, most of these games require specific work-around to get them to work on a modern system with a modern OS. You will need to look for consumer support (IE: Forums) for the specific title you are trying to play as it relates to your hardware and OS. Sorry I could not be of more help.

Cheats


Gain Complete Achievement
  • A golden level sign is a badge of honor showing the player they have completed an in-game level to the highest completion standard. It is a graphic that sits above the level select graphic. To have the golden level complete sign hang over every game level, players must collect every available item and rescue every prisoner in the level during one play through. A good tip is to use the x-ray scan card to more easily find all the prisoners and collectibles.
  • All Boss Cards
  • The way to achieve a boss card is to destroy the boss the player is fighting as quickly as possible. If the player defeats the boss quickly, a onscreen message will pop up informing the player they succeeded in getting a boss card for that boss.

    The best way to do this is to make sure the in-game character is equipped with lots of grenades and a special weapon. On the fourth boss, use the flame shot. Try to use the Metal Slug if applicable. Players can use the Metal Slug for the second, third and final bosses.
  • Unlock the Extra Dungeon Mission
  • During the fifth mission, collect the dungeon card. The card is located in level five, section three. In Metal Slug Advance, players can take different paths to the end of a level. To achieve the dungeon card, take the top path directly after the first playable screen of level five, section three. Then, take the top path again at the next opportunity to choose a path. This is a dead end. Kill any existing enemies at the dead end and pick up the dungeon card collectible. Head back towards the previous screen and finish the level. Once the player has completed the fifth mission and collected the dungeon card during play, exit to the mission select screen. In the upper left hand corner will be a selectable extra mission called "Dungeon."

    Medieval lords not running


    Hello wilsonpaul74

    As far as I know, there isn't a patch for Windows 7. Have you tried running it in compatibility mode? There are two ways to do this:

    OPTION 1 - TROUBLESHOOT COMPATIBILITY

    1. Right click on the programs shortcut, .EXE file, or installation program, and click on Troubleshoot compatibility. N.B. You will not have the Troubleshoot compatibility option available for pinned items in the Start Menu or on the Task Bar.

    2. The wizard will now give you a list of options to choose from. Try each individual option, following the on-screen instructions.

    If this doesn't work, you can try the following option.

    OPTION 2 - THROUGH THE PROPERTIES PAGE

    1. Right click on the programs shortcut, .EXE file, or installation program.

    2. Click on Properties.

    3. Click on the Compatibility tab.

    4. Check the Run this program in compatibility mode for box.

    5. Click on the drop-down menu arrow, and select which version of Windows the game was made for. N.B. Always pick the latest Windows version the game was made for a better chance of it running properly.

    I hope this helps. If you require further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Cant play old games such as dungeon keeper any ideas on how i can do thisi get blocks and fuzz


    You can try and run the game in compatibility mode. You can do this by installing the game and then right click on the shortcut on the desktop/folder and choose properties. Click on the compatibility tab and choose the version of windows that you used to play it on.

    The other option is to dual boot your operating systems. Infomation on how to get this done can be found here:
