Strange display errors on Windows 7

Post by falc410 » Fri Oct 05, 2012 9:23 am

Hi,

I just bought this game through the Groupees Bundle and I'm having some issues when running on Windows 7. The message boxes appear to be broken. On my Mac it works fine.
You should be able to spot it on this screenshot:

I have version 1.4d installed. Any idea what I can install to get it correctly?

Hello,
is a videocard problem: press shift+G while the game is running and select another renderer (likely DirectX). You might need to update your DirectX drivers but it will work fine :) On Mac it works because has preinstalled working OpenGL drivers.

Ok thanks a lot. I think as Video Card I use the CPU (Sandy Bridge). I will give it a try.

Yes then that will solve the problem, even if you'll need to install Directx 9.0c I think (in some cases it works without any extra install).
