Hello all,

I have an ATI X1800 XT graphics card, and whenever I turn up the lighting to even object-dynamic-lighting, the game stutters for a few minutes, and then crashes! Is this because my graphics card isn't good enough? Or something else? AMD 2.4 GHZ SINGLE CORE:confused:

What driver versions are you running?

Uh .... nope your card is fine enough. Not for really high settings but still. I played the entire game with an x800xtpe and it was fine under dynamic lighting. Just update your drivers first, and if not google it!

Thanks, I will try when I get back from this journey I'm on...I would have sworn I had the latest driver version...(Do you think it could also be a problem with my hard-drive? I had some corruption problems with it beforehand).

By the way, it comes up with an error message when it crashes, saying: your card does not support pixel-shader 3.0.

Well, there is your problem. In order to run the game with any dynamic lighting it requires a card capable of SM 3.0

The game isn't recognizing his card properly then.

Could be... I would suggest using a older ATI driver then.
