Your graphics card doesn't support T&L (which it has to to run AOD)

You can check this on the Eidos support page.

Thanks hope all the reboots didnt hurt. What a let down Core,Eidos.

Not only your card doesn't support TnL, but it's also too low on memory. You can't blame Eidos for that. Actually, you can't run any of the newer titles with that video card. :(

Hey guys,
I bought a Powercolor ATI 9600 PRO Bravo Edition, the one that comes with Tomb Raider: AOD .
I get the exact error ! I guess it's not due to the graphics card.
Can you please help me ? I would realy like to play the game... :rolleyes:

Have you updated your drivers?
Go to www.ati.com to get them....

Did you install directx9?

29th Jul 2003, 17:45
Catalyst 3.6

and yes DirectX 9 . That's why I wasn't expecting any error.

thatS big bucks still looking for right card. Let us know results for kill hunt

Well... I was searching ATI Control Panel and changed somethings at Direct3D options.
I can now run the game... but to be honest I expected better frame rates, well... I guess you can't have all you want. :rolleyes:
