So many support posts have boiled down people having older Non T&L cards I decided this is a good thread to create.

OMF:BG requires that you're video card support Hardware Based Transformation and Lighting.

Common video chipsets that are [color="red"]NOT[/color] supported to run the game:

  • 3DFx Voodoo, Voodoo II, Voodoo III, Voodoo 4, Voodoo 5 (never, ever, ever!)
  • All ATi cards before the Radeon 7200
  • All Intel motherboard chipsets
  • All Kyro or PowerVR
  • All Matrox
  • ALL nVidia chipsets before the Geforce
  • All S3
  • All SiS
  • All Trident


A 100% DirectXŽ-Compliant 3D video card is required. OMF:BG uses DirectX 9 to support 3D hardware acceleration. OMF:BG has been tested on many, but not all, of the major video cards incorporating the chipsets listed below:


  • ATIŽ Radeon 7200
  • ATIŽ Radeon 7500
  • ATIŽ Radeon 8500
  • ATIŽ Radeon 9500
  • ATIŽ Radeon 9600
  • ATIŽ Radeon 9700/pro
  • ATIŽ Radeon 9800
  • NVidia GeForce 256
  • NVidia GeForce 2 MX
  • NVidia GeForce 2 GTS
  • NVidia GeForce 2 Ultra
  • All NVidia GeForce 3/Ti series
  • NVidia GeForce 4 MX
  • All NVidia GeForce 4 series
  • All Nvidia GeForce 4/ti series
  • All Nvidia GeForce FX series



Hopefully this will be a shortcut for anyone experiancing an inability to load the game the first time.

There is a probram that will emulate Transformation and Lighting. This program is not supported or endorsed by us but some players have reported being able to play the game without a supported video chipset by using this program.
[color="red"]Be aware that by emulating T&L in software you will significantly slow down your computer and drasticly affect the games frame rate.[/color]

Yeah, but there's no reflectedy-goodness, nor decent shadows with 7000 that I can see.

And some of us run it with the nifty 3d analyze, but without reflections or glow.

Well then I guess I better find out what ATI Radeon version I have, no use wasting the money. Glad this was posted and that I actually looked at it.

The game should also work with the Matrox Parhelia, some of the Xabre cards, and the new SiS cards, I'll get exact models in a bit if no one else has.

There will be new graphic adapters from XGI, the Volari V5 and V8 so expect to put them on the list Wink
As i have seen in some benchmarks those card will compete with the best cards of Nvidia and Ati, but they are still at beta both drivers and hardware. Let's see what depares to us those cards.

probably not. I can't seem to find any real specifications for that card, but seeing as it's a 3dfx card, it probably won't work.


here's a big tip that seems to be causing many problems...

UPDATE YOUR VIDEO CARD DRIVERS

in caps so you won't miss it Smile. A lot of the graphics problems people are having are fixed by updating their drivers, not only for the video card, but all other system drivers as well.

My radeon IGP 345m card in my laptop can play it but no reflections though. At least I can play the game, even though the frame rate is still bad.
