I'm not Andi but I'll step in anyway

- What's your Graphics card?
- How recent are your drivers?

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

I see, I'm not a real expert on card compatibilities but I have some basic knowledge. Have you got the latest drivers for Vista?

Re: if your playing multiplayer please give me a shout
well, microsoft (vista) provides a generic driver for vista for the nvidia geforce 2 mx / mx400 cards. Thats what I have! There is no updated driver from nVidia as such for vista! I have searched to death lol.

I see, could be some kind of incompatibility. Are you planning on buying a newer card anytime soon?

hey flint .......

as usual your just trying to find a way to avoid getting your ass kicked

so have a look here http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=248376

its the fourth post down

i have no idea if it works

but ive done the same sort of thing to mine all be it without a video card from the stoneage

but if youve got a few quid to spare you should get a reasonable videocard for under a hundred quid... anything above a nvidia 7300 should work , (you would need to overclock a 7300 if you run everything on and high quality.... so have a hunt around and then get your ass back in muli..... make sure its opengl compatible
