i had the same problem im running a celeron 2.7 ghz chip on a gigabyte 8ig1000mk rev 1 motherboard with 1024 mb ddr and with a ati radeon 9250 series agp card.# i've sussed out the problem the minimum spec for a agp card for the game is 8x i can only get my graphics card to set too 4x which i don't understand because i have looked on the internet and it says that my card is 8x and my board supports 8x can anyone help me out ive been waiting for the game for months and i cannot play it unless i fork out another card but why should i my specifications for the card and board on the net says it supports 8x but i cant change no settings plz plz help
I found on this page an work arround witch could help, i have the same card as you do, i am having only an other motherboard and an faster cpu than you have, and i tried it. and Now i get this errors when starting the campaign. so i can only watch the holy buttons. but give it a try!! maybe you are our Emissary. :P http://startrek.bethsoft.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=3650&st=40
you can follow the complete tread from here: http://startrek.bethsoft.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=3650
in the same thread i found a new solution:
it worked for someone who was way under specifications: http://startrek.bethsoft.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=4899&st=80#
didn't try it myself yet!! but some people finally managed to play :)
The following are the only video cards that are stated as supporting the game: Windows XP (Home, Media Center or Pro Editions) with Service Pack 2 DirectX Version 9.0c Intel Pentium 4 (2.66ghz or higher) or AMD Athlon XP 2800+ or higher DX9 compatible AGP 8X or PCI Express video card, 128 MB VRAM, Pixel Shader 1.4 16-bit Direct Sound compatible sound card, speakers or headphones required for audio 512 MB RAM 5 GB free space LAN or Broadband connection (DSL or Cable Modem) for Multiplayer Windows compatible Keyboard & Mouse VIDEO CARDS THAT SUPPORT OR CAN PLAY THE GAME: ATI X1900 series ATI X1800 series ATI X1600 series ATI X1300 series ATI X850 series ATI x800 series ATI x700 series ATI x600 series ATI Radeon 9800 series ATI Radeon 9700 series ATI Radeon 9600 series ATI Radeon 9500 series NVIDIA GeForce 7800 series NVIDIA GeForce 6800 series NVIDIA GeForce 6600 series NVIDIA GeForce 6200 series NVIDIA GeForce FX series (5700 or above) Simple put, if your system or grahics card is not here the chances of your playing the game are pretty much nill.
yeah..and even if you match the specifications then still the game won't run.
there are people who can run the game and are way UNDER the specifications, have none of the supported graphic cards.
there are people who CAN'T run te game and they meet ore overrule the system requirements, having one of the supported graphic cards.
so the system spec's does not make any sense
I thought that 1gig ram was required :S
so it's all a guess if you can or can't run the game.
and if you don't want to throw money away: test it out before you buy :) or wait until a big patch has come out :)
allright the fix in one of my posts before works but it is what shattered all over the thread overthere so i made a thread here for you:
try it and let me know about it!!
