I'd like to announce I'm one step closer to actually buying/playing the bone games as I just purchased a video card. The great cow race demo ran really really slow without it. anyways, I just installed the drivers for a ATI Radeon 9200 SE 128MB card and loaded up the Great Cow Race demo as a test (it crashed twice for some reason, then finally loaded up).
The menu ran smoothy and the game was very smooth too. One problem though... The menu has specs flashing in places. All different sizes, but mostly small.
In the gameplay it's alot worse. I can't really explain it but it's like there is a center point in the middle of the screen where these long triangles stretch out of reaching to the edge of the screen constantly jumping all around.
The front of thorns hair is missing and her right eye has part of it's texture missing.
I know it's probably my card, but I'm wondering if you have any advice. I have the right drivers and looked through the set-up, but couldn't find anything to fix it.
I'm going to try un-installing direct x 9 because I heard the card only supports up to direct x 8.1
I'm also going to hunt down the direct3d and openGL options when I get home. I read in the online manual where to find them so maybe the solution is there.
I can't find the system requirments for the game anywhere. Should my card run the game flawlessly with top notch graphics?
(sorry for the long post I just got excited.)
