Everytime I try to launch the game a screen comes up with this:

I checked the list of compatible graphics cards. I have nVidia FX 5200. nVidia FX 5200 Ultra is on the compatible list, but not regular FX 5200. Is that what is causing the problem?

Probably, yes.

Try updating all your hardware drivers, make sure you have DirectX 9.0c, and if you've got the latest Forceware drivers for your nVidia card, uninstall them and find the most recent non-Forceware drivers you can. If that doesn't work, it's your card.

Forceware drivers, despite boasting integrated support for all graphics renderers, doesn't support OpenGL.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

What website can I go to to chose what drivers to install? If I uninstall the current driver and do the automatic update it will give me the same one I have now.

For all your driver needs.

Thank you. I will see if this will solve the problem.

One more question: How can I tell if it is a forceware driver?

It'll probably be in the filename or description, and if not, you can always check the version numbers through the release notes on nVidia's site.

Well, that didn't work. It completely screwed my computer over. Guess I will not be able to play Jedi Academy. Thank you for your advice.
