Hi there,

I know that the G550 is not offically supported. The "Myst IV Revelation Configuration Utility" however claims it to be a compatible grapics card with a compatible grapics driver.

I use the latest drivers (g550_2kxp_592_006) with the latest directx. The videos display fine but in game graphics display as a mass of huge brown and beige rectangles. This problem has been encountered by other users before with radeon 7000 cards ( one example (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=580100736&m=2851053622)). I also tried older drivers but to no avail.

Any chance of running the game with a G550 in the foreseeable future?

Cheers

Probably not in the immediate future. Your best luck would be to go spend $50 on a new graphics card that at least cuts the minimal mustard.
