I can tell you that I am currently using a Saphire ATI 4870 graphics card with Caatalyst 8.7 driver. If this card does not support your game, what will? Sad

From the looks of it, the game is detecting an integrated graphics card as primary instead of your real primary. Try disabling the onboard graphics completely and start the game again. To disable onboard graphics, venture into BIOS and set onboard graphics to off and make sure that the "init display first" is set to your real primary card. (I.e. if your card is PCIE, init display first should be set to PCIE)

Thanks for your answer.

That would be my first thing to do also, if I had an intergrated graphicscard on my motherboard (Asus p5ad2-e premimum) wich I do not have.

Is there any small software I could run to se if it detects my hardware OK?

It is strange that you have "Microsoft Corporation GDI Generic" as your current graphics driver. Are you sure you have downloaded the correct graphics driver from ATI and not some strange "Microsoft Generic" stuff? Smile

It was something called "ASUS extended graphics driver" that prevented the detection of openGL. Dont ask me why, but after disabeling this "feature" in the device manager it worked perfectly.

Cool game. I realy liked the railgun Very Happy
