    really want to get a r600 but just heard they've been pushed back yet again unitl q2 sometime and i don't know if i can be arsed to wait for that so might buy a 8800gts instead.

    been reading this forum for a while and are well aware of all the compliants about the 8800 series not working thou is there now a way round this?

    still only on the first few levels my 6800gs can't handle it (**** res and still low frame rate) so waiting to play on a better card.

    ultimately will the 8800 actually allow me to play this game (on xp sp2)?
    specs:
    Athlon 64 5200+ X2
    BFG Geforce 8800gts OC (640)
    2B OCZ PC6400 ram
    MSI K9N (Nforce 550)

    DO NOT BUY THIS GAME IF YOU OWN A 8800! Its a waist of money my friend. Its just not going to work for you and then your gonna go online and try to fix it but chances are it wont work. Ive tried everything from the "-ll" thing. Never worked. To the different Drivers. We pay the money so we can TRY AND FIGURE out how to play a game. Its stupid. ubisoft fix this game!

    How come nobody can spell 'waste' here ?

    'Waist' is the part on your body that you fasten your belt around.


    Anyway, what does the '-II' thing signify ?

    I wish i would have read this forum before i wasted 40.00. I am running dual 8800 gts's in sli on An asus a8n32 mb w/ fx60 cpu and 2 gig of corsair twin x. Great for every other game in the WORLD but this one... Just got done playing Might and magic dark messiah, game ran beautifully, thought this would too. now i know why they gave MM: DM away with my G card. Only game they probable got to play on it! lol Please fix Ubi, dont want to lose faith in the quality of your games!
