First, I want to start by saying that I, at one time, DID have this game working... I don't know what caused it to stop...
When trying to start Generals it gets to the "Loading screen" and then crashes back to desktop with a DirectX error... "Please make sure you have DirectX 8.1 or higher installed. Also verify that your video card meets the minimum requirements"
I have downloaded my latest video, sound, directX, internet exoplorer drivers & game patches. I bought a new video card (GeFore 5200 FX AGP) thinking that may solve the problem; Nothing. Tried reformating/reloading multiple times. I have run out of ideas. Does ANYONE have a solution or even a similar problem??
---------------------- System Specs ---------------------- 1000mhz PIII 384Mb RAM Nvidia GeFore 2 32mb AGP(took the new card back) Sound Blaster 512 PCI 34.8 available gigs of space DirectX 9.0a (8.1 did not work either)
I hed that same problem too. Then it just went away somehow. I dont really know why. Anyway try fooling aroung with the resoultion of ur comp. Maybe it has an effect
I think it is your CPU but it could always be the video card.
Any other ideas??
I hope it's not the CPU....
directx 9.0a hav problems with games.
