    This game called Tribes (the first Tribes) (http://www.sierra.com/).

    I'm asking this because every time I startup the game and play, the graphics (or FPS) is laggy. When I go in the Video card set-up in the game, it only have OpenGL. Where is the DirectX? How could I change it that it can allow to use DirectX?

    My graphics cards is a NVIDIA TNT 16mb (not the TNT2).

    Here is a pic what I'm talking about. Sorry about the color, I don't know why it is causing that.

    you mean direct 3d?
    maybe the game doesn't support it.

    Besides, OpenGL is much better than Direct3d.
