I'm having a problem w/ Halo (for the PC). Every time I try to play, it gives me this message:
"We are sorry, but you video hardware is below the minimum specs for this game. If you wish to update your computer, please contact your computer manufacturer for any necessary assistance."
Yes, I know I got this because my graphics card isn't good enough....but it meets all the specs that Halo requires to operate; although my card's specs are exactly what it requires. I'll give you the req's for Halo, and then computer's specs.
Halo's requirements (graphically): 32 MB/3D T&L capable
What I have: 32 MB SiS 650 (0x6325)
Do I need to change the resolution on my computer? I dunno. Also, what does this "3D T&L capable" thing mean? Anyways, I hope someone can help, cuz i dont wanna buck up $150 or more just to play this game. Thanks.

The T&L Capable video card means it requires Transform and Lighting, which I'm not sure your video card has. If this is your first time playing Halo on PC, chances are your card doesn't support it. I believe all of the ATI cards from Radeon 7000+ support it, most are fairly cheap. You're in need of a video card upgrade anyways; you could buy a Radeon 9200 128 mb video card for ~$70-$80 at Best Buy. Hope that helps.

Yes it did.....but i was afraid of that. Also, what is DDI? Apparently, after running DXDIAG, I found that my display driver does not support API, because my DDI version is too low. Thank you for your help though.
