I think the problem is your videocard(drivers). Have you tried dowloading the newest drivers for your videocard or reinstalling the videocard?

Well first off lets go threw two scenorios. 1.Does this message pop up for AAO only? 2.Does this message pop up for all directx games? If it is two I would reinstall windows, and all your drivers. Lets say its number 1. Ok first thing we are going to do is a clean uninstall of your video drivers. Too do this goto (Windows 98SE) Control Panel/Display/Settings/Advanced/Adapter. From here your going to click "Change" tab, click next, highlight "Display a list of drivers...." Click next, In the lower left and corner highlight "Show all hardware", Then under "Manufactures" highlight "(Standard Display Types)", Under model highlight "Standard Display Adapter (VGA)" Click next and install. It will prompt you that it is not the correct driver. Just ignore it. Now the computer will either reboot or ask you to. Reboot your computer. Now when you see you screen you are going to think I screwed you. Not to worry. Its supposed to look that bad. Now we have to get all the files out. If you are running a Nvidia/Geforce card go to "Search/find folders" and look up Nvidia and geforce and earse everything you find (Same goes for ATI or any other card you may be running) (Not to worry again we will be replacing all of these and a lot of them are old and are probaly conflicting with one another). After that you have a clean uninstall. Now I do not know if you update you drivers(Lets say you do). To start we are going to be on the safe side. First reinstall directx. and Reboot. Then reinstall your video card with it's original drivers. And if I where you and the only problem is the game before I even tested it out I would uninstall the game. Delete the folder. And reinstall the game. After all that I hope you are good to go. Good luck bro. Stealth42o
