Hi all,

 

Ok, I cna get the game up and running fully on my newer laptop but struggling on my desktop.

 

It is running XP v3, and has a SiS661fx graphics driver.

 

It loads up fine and i can see my char, and all surrounding area, but the game crashes approx 1 sec later.

 

Error log copy is below

You can check these points:

 

'EL.exe' is in 'C:\Program Files\Eternal Lands'

 

The file 'EL.ini' in the same directory contains the string '#data_dir = "d:\Eternal Lands' (with #)

 

And 'My Documents\Eternal Lands' contains configuration files (files *.DAT and others)

SiS graphics cards aren't really supported, I think. You could try to enable the 'poor man' option in the options window (Ctrl+o at the login screen - Details Tab).

Thanks for the replies.

 

Tried both of these things, but no avail.

Also tried adjusting the amount of colours. but still zip.

 

Think I am going to have to giving up any idea of playing this on my works computer.

Probably a good thing in hindsight
