    I'm trying to install RollerCoasterTyphoon 3
    onto a WInXP SP2 laptop
    it comes up with

    DirectX9 not found

    I have installed the latest DirectX 9C from MS site - download full version Jun2006
    I have installed latest video driver from ACER site
    I have updated the game
    tested the DirectX with DXDIAG
    9.0C (4.09.0000.0904)
    display test run
    on 3d test it runs two test and then skips hardware-accelerator direct3D 9 as the driver does not support it.
    Display driver does not support API (DDI version too low)

    the adapter is a S3 Graphics Twister 16MB
    the Laptop is an
    ACER ASPIRE 1200


    i will only have the laptop until 16:00 GMT today - so any help will be appreciated

    Maybe your video driver doesnt support game either?

    Well, for starters, you don't meet the minimum system requirements, according to Atari:
    I would imagine the error you're getting is related to the video card not having full DirectX 9 support. Check the manufacturer to ensure that.

    Thanks - I thought that may be the case - but no details on the BOX at all for min spec

    ok seems to be solved now ???
    strange - I went into device manager and updated the video driver - even though it had the latest installed - so any way working now
    kind of - but i dont play ganes so i will give it back and explain thatthe adapter is not really good enough to support the game

    Thanks for the fast response

    Good to hear. :) I recall seeing somewhere that the latest drivers added DX9 support, but I wasn't sure. I would suggest not pushing that little card too far though. ;)

    No - not really my scene Games I'm afraid and certainly not on laptops :) :)
    Strange that installing the latest drivers and then updating seemed to be different
