(ati radeon 9250 gamer edition 256DDR):( EDIT : SORRY FOR THE OTHER 2 POSTS,WAS GETIN AND ERROR AFTER I SUBMITED,MODERATORS CAN DELETE THEM.
Your card cant handle DX9.
Go into MyComputer/Shared Docs/STALKER SOC/user.ltx (Or another place if you did do default install)
In there search for renderer renderer_r2 and change it to renderer renderer_r1 See if that does anything
Edit the link on the desktop to say
"C:\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\bin\XR_3DA.exe" -r1
OR wherever it was installed to, the important thing is the -r1 bit that is OUTSIDE the " " marks
it was allready on r1,tried it on r2 and with the shortcut,but the same:(
I have identical problem with Stalker like @bloodelfaha, but i've Radeon 9200 card (not a big difference i think ). The renderer solution doesn't work for me, i have in my user.ltx file "renderer renderer_r1" line from the beginning. Hmn maybe the problem is in the other line of this file .. i don't know or could be with pixel shaders (minimal recommended is 2.0 i've got on my card 1.4 :() or direct :confused:
This requires at least a SM2 card, the 9200 wont work i believe
You can upgrade your card. You can get a good 6600GT for less than $150
i didn't buy the game to upgrade my vdeo card,if the specs said it would run on my card,then it should run,if a patch or another solution don't come up in the next 2 day or they'll bunde a new video card with the game,it'll be the last game i'll buy from thq,if i didn't saw my card there,i would not buy it,but that's the result of poor support and customer care...
You card is well below the MINIMUM specs for the game.
The minimum (right off the box) is nVIDIA GeForce 5700/ATI Radeon 9600/ 128MB DirectX 9c compatible graphics card
I believe you may have read the box wrong.
So your saying there is no way that I could see the menu with 9200?? Perhaps I somehow set the graphics low and go into the game without seeing the menu? cuz I think that I will be able to play the game on low graphics but I cant change it..:(
