    We have an error mess that reads as follows:
    Unable to determine status of the installed video card.
    Please check the video card configuration.

    I have checked the config on the card and run diagnostics, so far everything has checked out as OK.
    What am I missing?

    Make sure you get the latest drivers for your card from www.ati.com, and check if there are any patches available for the game as well.

    Well, in the Age of Mythology readme, it lists a bunch of ATi Rage cards (not yours specifically) as being unsupported, and yours barely meets the minimum requirements even if it is supported, so I'm not sure if you can play without an upgrade or two.

    I used to have a 16MB ATI Rage Pro, notice i said "used to" cause that was the suckiest card ever, it had lots of problems with not being compatible with games, and it had a lot of Open GL problems as well. Which made the games that i did have run like ... well, you know. I would definately think about getting a newer card. I said in another post that i have a Nvidia 64MB MX card mx/mx400. A lot of people don't like the MX cards but i haven't had any problems out of mine *knocks on wood* Hope that helps.

    People don't hate MX cards because they malfunction, but rather because they are slower than the other cards, don't have as many features, and are usually named to fool the uninformed consumer into thinking they're getting a great card.
