Error Message: Unable to find D3D8.dll

Summary: This error-message pops up as soon as you attempt to run the game. It simply means that you do not have DirectX 8 (or higher) installed!

Resolution: Please visit Microsoft's DirectX page, download, and install a newer version of DirectX. After installing a recent version of DirectX and rebooting your computer, this message will go away.


Error Message: D3DERR_INVALIDCALL

Summary: This error-message pops up as soon as you attempt to run the game. It means that the videocard in your computer does not fully support DirectX 8.

Resolution: Buy a new videocard! Or, wait until we get a chance to rewrite all the graphics-routines in the game to support older videocards such as yours. You'd probably be happier with a new videocard, regardless...

Actually, updating the Driver for your VideoCard may fix things as well -- please let us know if this works for you!! Alternately, try switching your Windows graphics-settings to a different color-depth (16-bit, 32-bit, etc.), as this sometimes works as well.
