HI
I purchased this game for my son. It installed fine and when I try and run I get an error:

"The procedure entry point DdEntry10 could not be located in the dynamic link library DDRAW.dll".

System specs:
XP SP2
AMD K6 450 Mhz
700 + RAM
20 GIG HD
Savage4 Video Card

Thanks
D

I don't know exactly what that error message means but seeing the system specs I wonder if it would run at all. The cpu is below minimum and I believe the vidcard is also not sufficient I'm afraid.

Indeed, that processor is somewhat deficient for this game. As well, that video card is very deficient for any modern games. The Savage 4 card is directx 6 compatable... which is at least 6 years old. OMF:BG won't run properly on a card without at least directx 8 support.

I believe that the actual error message you get is related to not having a recent version of directx installed.

The solution is probobly to purchace a new computer, because I doubt your son will be able to play any modern games at all with those specs. However if you feel it saves you some money you can attempt to buy a modern graphics card, preferably one that will stay modern for another few years, and a major processing speed update.
Though personally, when people tell me they dont have enough this or that to run something, and there are a lot of upgrades needed, I tell them to buy a whole new computer alltogether, so that they dont have to upgrade anything else for a year or two.

ya... I doubt a new video card will cut it when running the game on that system. My brother has a decent enough card in comp with a 733 Mhz processor and the game is still very CPU limited on that.

I had GeForce4 on my old 833MHz and I had to run the game in minimal settings to be able to see the SMOOTH animations, not a slide show.
