Hello again. New computer , new problems , huh? Ok , let`s see... What OS do you have now ; XP or Vista? If it`s Vista , then I`m not surprised that you have theese problems. Did you updated the game and / or tryed reinstalling it? You can try setting compatibility with XP on all .exe files before (on CD) and after reinstallation (in game`s folder). That is , if you have Vista. If you have XP , try updating sound drivers , if you haven`t already. I don`t know what else to suggest you. :clueless: Just FYI (again?) , I get that same "ancient Direct X version" message in my console when I start the game (9.0c is installed) , but everything works fine. O , one more thing. Your graphic card is probably the worst thing NVIDIA has ever made (no offense) , but I doubt it`s the cause of your problem.

Hello again! New computer , new problems , huh? Ok , let`s see... From the amount of your RAM I`d guess that you have Win XP or something older , right? At least it`s not Vista , lol. :lol: I think I know what`s the cause of your problem. You have 256 MB of VRAM and only 128 MB of RAM! That`s not good. RAM amount should be higher than VRAM amount for everything to work properly. 128 MB is not enough theese days anyway , so I suggest you to add more RAM , at least up to 512 MB. That should solve your problem. I think Kouen would agree with me on this. You may also try updating sound drivers , if you haven`t done that already. Just FYI (again?) , I also get that "ancient Direct X version" message in my console when I start the game , but everything works fine. O , one more thing. Geforce 5xxx series is probably the worst thing NVIDIA has ever made. FX chip`s arhitecture is so bad that it doesn`t support DX 9 features properly. Again , I think I have Kouen`s support on this one too. If I do , give me one teh gizmo , Kouen , lol. :lol:

OMG lol, well i checked my dxdiag, and said something called, RAMDAC, idk what that is, but yea, well its runs faster than a 128mb RAM, cause the old one is beside me and is uber slow at 128mb RAM, but do you think it could be the USB port? or something like that, and yeah i use XP, and well my FPS is realy slow, like about 10fps, on tatooine, anyways, it runs fine like high graphics and that on other games are decent just the sound, thats all

Do you get low FPS just when trying to play online or offline too? USB connection is slower than Ethernet , so yeah , that can also be the cause of your low FPS problem. But , your real problem is your low amount of RAM. 128 MB is required minimum for running Win XP (at least I think so). So , when you try to play some game , there just isn`t enough memory (RAM) left for your game to run smooth. My friend uses USB port to connect to the Internet , but he`s computer has 512 MB RAM and 256 MB VRAM and his Jedi Academy works perferctly smooth offline and online. Trust me , you need more RAM to solve your problem. Also , you can buy Ethernet card and use it instead of USB port to connect to the Internet. That should give you little more speed. But don`t expect miracles because your CPU is also super slow , lol. :lol:

Well , if your current sound card is too old , you should get a new one. Is your current sound card integrated on the motherboard or just plugged into the PCI slot? Integrated sound cards , especially thoose on the older motherboards , are famous for causing sound problems. If you decide to get a new sound card , you will need to disable this one trough BIOS. If it`s a PCI card , just take it out and put the new one in it`s place. Make sure to uninstall old drivers before installing new ones. I don`t know what else to suggest you.

Nice Dxdiag report , lol. Your "how the hell do I do that" question lead me to conclusion that you don`t know what BIOS even is , much less how to get to it and disable integrated sound card. Do you at least know is your sound card integrated or PCI? My suggestion is simple ; have someone qualified check your computer for you. Even if you get into BIOS on your own , you probably wouldn`t know where to look and what to do. One wrong tweak can cause your computer to behave erratically or even not to work at all. There is one thing you can do yourself. Run DirectX Diagnostic Tool again and go to "Sound" tab. Look at the bottom under "Notes". Do you get any problem report there? Next , click on "Test DirectSound" , answer "Yes" or "Ok" to any question your computer askes you and let it run entire test. Look in "Notes" again to see test report. Also , you can try changing "Hardware Sound Acceleration Level" to see if it makes any change in your sound behaviour. Inform me about test resoults , please.
