Hi I'm new http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I just installed Myst III and everything seemed to go well. I believe my system excedes the requirements. When I try to play the game it freezes shortly into the game, when entering the office and looking around. Any ideas what could be the cause? I am running windows 98SE with a Nvidia GeForce4 MX440. I haven't downloaded any patches because from what I can tell they don't seem to address my problem. Any help would be appreciated. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif I ran my DxDiag and there doesn't seem to be any problems. I would post it here but I don't know how http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif I hate these game problems, it's like looking for a needle in a haystack http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif for me anyway?

Welcome jeocan,

We'll try to help, but first let's take care of some basics:

<UL TYPE=SQUARE>1. Make sure the disk is clean and free of scatches and the reader is clean as well.

2. What version of MystIII do you have - the CD set or DVD? If it is the CD, hold down the Ctrl key when launching to bring up a setup window. In the bottom left corner is the version number - if it is less than 1.22, install this US Patch (ftp://ftp.ubisoft.com/games/myst3exile/patches/m3patch122_us.exe) if it is a US version game, or this Europe Patch (ftp://ftp.ubisoft.com/games/myst3exile/patches/Myst3Patch12.exe) if you have the European English edition.

3. In the same setup window mentioned above, ensure that Direct 3D is selected and not software.

4. Close all background applications before playing MystIII. This includes any screensaver or instant messenger types.

5. Don't Alt-Tab out of MystIII - it can't handle it and becomes very unstable.

6. In order to post your DxDiag report here, click on "Save All Information" at the bottom of the DxDiag window after running the tests, open the .txt file it creates, select all text and chose "copy", then open a reply window for this post by clicking the "reply" button at the bottom of this screen and "paste" the DxDiag text into that window.[/list]

If the first five items mentioned here don't cure your problem, we'll be able to use the DxDiag report for more information. It will also be helpful to know if it is a "Full Install" where the game runs from the hard drive, or "Minimal" where it runs from the CD.

hmmmmm http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gifAs you can see I'm no computer wiz. When I open my system settings I have ATI 3D Rage Pro (atir3) disabled. I believe that is the card that came with my PC. I installed the NVidia card myself. As for the Rage Pro Turbo AGP 2X??? I have nooo Idea! It doesn't show up in my Device Manager under display adapters? I really think this could be the problem. Where is it and how do I get rid of it? OMG I sound so stupid http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif This could be the reason that NONE of my other games work either. HELP!

Oh I forgot. It was a typical install not a full install. The typical was highlighted so I went with that. Also I changed my settings to 640x480 now it just crashes a few minutes into the game. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif I have version 1.0 I am now about to download the patch. I sure hope I can fix this thing. It's really hard to play a game while holding your breath http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif I'm about to take a hammer to this thing http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Well gee I hate to make a pest of myself but now I feel really stupid. I just downloaded the patch but now I can't find it. It says to download it then run it. Where is it? I can find the readme file for it but nothing else http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif OMG my stupidity amazes even me. I've downloaded patches before and I've never had to find them? It still says I have version 1.0.

Okaaaay, now that we have access to this board again:

Posted by wstrohm: <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> Not sure this could be a problem, but if you are running an nVidia graphics card, why is this driver in your system?

Inactive Display Entries in Registry
------------------------------------
Card name: RAGE PRO TURBO AGP 2X (English)
Driver: macxw4.drv
Card name: ATI 3D Rage Pro (atir3)
Driver: atir3.drv <HR></BLOCKQUOTE> This would be a significant problem. Jeocan, did you simply add the nVIDIA card, or remove the ATI card and install the nVIDIA card in its place? Knowing if the ATI graphics processor is part of the motherboard or was a removable card is very important and will determine the correct method of eliminating it from Windows. There are a few things you need to do, but to avoid confusion I will wait for your reply before going further.

Thanks for the help Heuris http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I think I can explain this??? The ATI 3D Rage Pro (atir3) I believe came with the computer. It's always been listed in my system. I just disabled it. The NVIDIA card I bought and installed in the empty slot as per instructions. I did not have to remove anything manually. As for the RAGE PRO TURBO AGP 2X? I have no idea what that is? It's not listed under my display adapters. Just the ATI 3D Rage Pro and the NVidia. As you can probably tell I have no idea what I'm talking about http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif I think maybe I tried to update the ATI driver once?? As for avoiding confusion? You must be kidding? If you're going to explain anything to me you better make it simple. Although I did manage to figure out how to install the patch http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I played for about an hour and THEN it crashed http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif I really think you're on to something with this though. I've recently just started having problems with all my games and I vaguely remember seeing this TURBO thingy showing up around the same time. I've obviously done something wrong. Thanks for your patience http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif so far??

jeocan, do you have a manual that came with the computer? It would be extremely helpful at this point and would allow you to completely remove the ATI "card".

Simply put, the ATI "card" is integrated into the motherboard, and therefore not something you can physically remove. It needs to be "removed" in a different way:

There is a point when the computer is first turned on where you can enter what is called "Setup"; it is a few seconds after you first see something on the screen and before Windows begins to load. "Setup" is where all the basic hardware controls for the computer are, and it is where you will need to get in order to turn the ATI card off so that the computer ignores it and Windows does not see it. Getting into and navigating within "Setup" is where the having the computer's manual will be helpful. Do you have it?

Yes I have the manual. It has instructions on "how to use the old (existing) monitor that doesn't support the factory default display setting (SVGA mode, 800x600)" Whatever the heck that means? duh! Reading the instructions it seems to be something I could try? No? I don't see anything with "setup". Is that the same as safe mode? I start the computer in safe mode and modify the instructions to get RID of the ATI card? orrrr can't I just click "remove" in my Device Manager? OH you poor guy! Sorry! This must be quite annoying trying to explain something to a complete moron....me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif

I don't know what Heuris has in mind but the 'setup' might be described under 'Bios'.

Disabling a device in Windows is not completely effective in "removing" it from resource considerations. Integrated peripherals such as jeocan's ATI graphics "card" must be disabled within the BIOS if another device of the same type is to be used. This eliminates resource allocation conflicts, especially with graphics processors.


jeocan,

Safe Mode is not what you are after.

It appears that your computer uses an older method of disabling the on-board video, and you will not have to access the "Setup" program at all. Instead you will need to open the computer case and physically adjust one small thing. Are you okay with that? If so, look in the manual for "Jumper Settings". If there, it should give you a description of what a "Jumper" is and how to use it. You will need to find jumper "J1". There may be 3 or 4 pins sticking up and a cap over two of them. There should be a little white "1" printed on the board next to one of the end pins meaning that pin is number 1. The pin next to that is number 2, and so on. The cap should be over pins 2-3 right now, but you will need to pull the cap off and put it over pins 1-2.

CAUTION: Before opening the computer cover, make sure the computer is turned off and that power is removed (unplug from the wall or back of the computer).


Once the on-board ATI video is disabled, you can remove the ATI drivers from Windows, update your nVIDIA drivers, and play your games.

I found something on the emachines website. The manual is useless. I tried to post it here but it wouldn't let me or I don't know how?? I have an etower 533i. If you wouldn't mind looking it up for me and telling me where to go from here. Please http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

jeocan,

Here is some documentation for your computer's motherboard in Adobe PDF format: Florida-TG.pdf (http://www.motherboards.org/files/manuals/125/Florida-TG.pdf)

You are interested in pages 9 and 10. Locate J1 using the diagram on page 9, and move the jumper cap from pins 2-3 to 1-2 as per the table on page 10.

That should do it as far as getting rid of the unwanted ATI display device. From there it will be a matter of removing the ATI drivers from windows. I'll be checking back in a few hours for messages.

Are you sure that won't screw up my computer? This is me... remember? When I read the instructions for installing my NVIDIA card it never said anything about this? Do you really think this is the problem with my games? I played Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness with the computer the way it is now (physically). The requirements are higher for that game than this one. I really think it could be a matter of removing something that shouldn't be on here, or changing something. Pleassssse anything but opening up my computer! I'm still wondering about this Rage Pro Turbo thingy. That wasn't on here before. I have a feeling it's something simple that's wrong but I just can't figure out what it is? Wishful thinking? One thing I have noticed for instance.... My older games I originally played without the CD Rom Drive constantly accessing the CD. Now all my games seem to constantly run...annoyingly loud on this old machine! I'm sure I'm using the wrong terms, but I hope you know what I mean? What would cause that for instance? I haven't changed anything since playing them the first time. A few I played without the NVIDIA card however and they worked fine. They actually are worse now. OMG I'm so confused http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif

jeocan, this will not hurt your computer. If it might, I wouldn't recommend it. If you installed the nVIDIA card yourself, you can certainly do this. Whether you or someone else does it, it needs to be done - you will not be able to run 3D programs without errors or problems until it is. If there is something you are uncertain about, ask first. I or someone else will answer.
