Tonight I downloaded the Game "Kayak Extreme" from the new Real Arcade, anyways in order to play the game you have to meet certain requirements, I meet all of them except the 3D Hardware one, how do I fix this so I can play the game
You can check on the game sites or the developer's readme on the hardware requirement to play the games. Normally, they will do a lot of testing with different 3d card before rolling out the games. Check with the games readme files or manuals if your 3d card is supported in the game. If your card is listed, then you will need to install tehe latest driver and DirectX.
If your card is not suppported, there is no way you will be able to play the game with the full effect in the games. You willl experience some missing texture or your game crash to teh desktop. The 3d card that is advisable to get nowadays is the GeForce2.
My guess is that you are using the ATI Enhanced driver set, because I had exactly the same thing displayed as you, except with (Francais) instead of (English), but that was when I was using my ATI 3D Charger 2MB
I think you may not have enough memory on your card (only 2 or 4MB)to run the game, and some games doesn't consider you have a 3D accelerator with that memory size.
Go to Start -> Run, then type "dxdiag" and go to the display tab. It should be written how much memory do you have.
