    Please can anyone help? I had a new Graphics Card installed ( ATI Radeon 9600 Pro ) so that I could Download the Game Broken Sword Angel of Death onto my computer. This was fine but the game will not play properly .The Mouse pointer jerks about all over the screen and I dont have much control over it.This of course makes it impossible to play!
    Is the Graphics card compatable? If not what ones definitely are? The one given on the list from the makers of the game do not appear to be still available and I know nothing about Graphics cards or much else for that matter!
    Is there someone who plays this game can tell me what they have? Or if they know how to solve this problem? I would be very grateful I have been getting so frustrated. My computer has been checked and dxdiag done and no problem there,so maybe its Graphics card?

    done that,says congratulations your system passes the recommended requirements you should have a great experience running this product!
    It says Pass for CD ROM Drive but cannot analyze speed. I am aware that the driver for this is probably out of date but how do I update it? and could this be the problem?

    I havent forgot about you :D
    what version direct x are you running and have you updated your graphics card

    also try defragmenting your hard drive and how much memory do you have .. these newer games eat it for breakfast

    also try reducing the textures to medium .. play with the settings in the game and see if it helps ..

    Direct X 9.0 comes with the game.
    Have done defrag and disc cleanup Have 512 RAM and have just over half Free Space. Have used game settings and tried reducing textures but doesnt work.
    Occasionally the game will run o.k for a minute or two but then I have difficulty moving the mouse it jerks everywhere and will not go where you want it to.
    Sorry to shoot down everything you suggest,but short of changing the Graphics card(which despite the compatability test) I still think may not be good enough I do not know what else to try.But obviously I do not want to go to the expense of replacing a near new Graphics card if it will not cure the problem!! I was hoping that someone could solve the problem without having to gamble on spending more money out.
    I really do appreciate your help tho'

    yeah here are 2 suggestions:

    1) be patient :)

    2) find out if the problem happens in other games like that.

    Sorry,I dont mean to be impatient,but I have been trying to sort this since the New Year and I must admit I have gotten a little frustrated.I do appreciate any help given tho'
    The only other game I have that requires a direct X 9.0 compatable card is TUNGUSKA and plays o.k My other games are all older and lower spec . What similar game should I try?
