:bawl:I downloaded the game from www.the-underdogs.org and tried to install it. I got the Direct X 8.1 error so I patched the system with the latest patch. Unfortunately it still doesn't work - I get a Video Startup Error stating "Unable to find texture by index". My system is well capable of running the game (6800GT video card etc) but I can't get the game to run. Can anyone help? Thanks!!
Try the DirectX 9 Fix.
OK- I'll give it a shot, although I thought that the DX9 patch was included in the latest SFC3 patch which I've already applied.
um its not it includes 8.1 it doesnt work like that if you get 9.0c hold down start and R at the same time than type in regedit hit enter than click local machine than go to microsoft then directx. scroll right and you will see numbers and they should look like this
4.09.00.0904 chagne them to 4.08.00.0904
and how you do that is you right click modify and it will show the numbers 4.09.00.0904 and retype them to 4.08.00.0904
than close and play it will get you to menu and stuff but on my comp i still cant play game im reserching on my problem it gets stuck at loading screen and in task maneger it says not responding well maybe it will work all the way for you i dont know but it makes pc htink its 8 and it makes it compatible with direstc 8 games.

oh yeah also get the patch 534b search it on sfc3files.com
the regedit thing with 9.0c and 534b included with regedit modification will work trust me i did it. and now i can play! =)
I didn't need the reg edit. 534b doesn't say you need DX 8.1 if you have 9.
than i should switch it back through regedit bacause americas army doesnt work and i
have some friends online that i miss chatting and playing with! LOL
