Please post your system specs.
And please refrain from double-threading in future.

From the games readme file,
Quote:
Graphics: DirectX 8.0/8.1 compliant or low-end DirectX 9 3D accelerator

(nVidia GeForce3 and 4 series (not MX!), GeForceFX 5200 through 5700 series, ATI Radeon 8500 through 9200 and X300 series, S3 DeltaChrome or XGI Volari ... )
I do belive your 420/32meg video is based on the MX chipset and 64 meg is also required to run Sam2.

Sorry about the big bold text its just the way it pasted.

I dunno off hand ,is that a laptop? or desktop PC?You can buy a new video card if you have a slot for it that the game does support.
You can fiddle around with your video setting in windows.
Truth is if its an older laptop your choices are limited unless theres a slot for a vid card then avalibility and price are a factor.

Just curious though, when you start the game can you see the menu and enter it or does that video problem occur then as well? Or does that just happen when you try to start a game from the menu?

It's a laptop, so not the best thing for computer games. I don't want to go further with this game, so I'm gonna go exchange the game for a PS2 game. Thank you very much for your help! I really appreciated it... bye
