As some of you may know, i play games on an OLD comp and just purchased a 8400 GS for it (ugh, PCI slot board) after i install the card/drivers and stuff, i played starcraft and the picture SUCKED. the computer was just simply not updatng the picture when things in the game happened, and its basically unplayable. I asked my father about it and he said that the card is too "new" for the game and that the game was designed to run in, like, directx 2 and runÂ on older cards.
are there any drivers i can get to have it learn how to run on this new-ish card?
to be honest, saying a card is too new for a game is a bit ridiculous, don't you think? I think for starcraft, if you log into battle.net the game will update itself so try that first. have you tried playing any other games to see if they were playable?
ok, i tried opening "properties" and i change the compatibility mode settings. it makes the game switch over to windows 95 when i want to play the game, and switch back out when im not playing. i switched all the settings to what it should be and now it doesnt run. it only prompts me saying "starcraft failed to read a file, the disc may not be in the disc drive" or something.
