So where's the new engine...

Post by routetosomewhere » Fri Aug 21, 2009 12:04 am

I got exited by the new engine I saw in a trailer,
and I THOUGHT it would be out by now
but when I reinstalled my game (the new client)
it says "there was no 3D card detected"
and now I am BACK with the crappy graphics -.-
I tried to change the Settings but I cannot select my video card!!!

I have tried searching for how to fix it, but found nothing...

Anyone please help me, I have a NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 video card...

I'm desperate about this
Thanks in advance!!!!

simple answer: the new engine isn't out yet, and so new tech gfx cards can't currently be detected by AO due to it still running on DX7. I run it using a GTX260, and force AO to use AA using the nVidia control panel. I do get gfx glitches too in populated zones.

You'll find lots of threads about this under the Tech Help and Game Mechanics sections of the official AO forums ... p?t=543513
