Hoping for a little luck and help I have an onboard Xabre 200 on my motherboard. It has worked flawlessly up until recently. It seems that many of the newer games are no working on my PC. I first noticed the problem with a game called Xpand Rally. I was able to get it working with some tweaking of the game files, specifically the refresh rate. The game set the refresh rate to 85, I changed it to 60 and it was good. Some more tweaking of the game files got everything to work ok. Other newer games, I haven't been so lucky. My PC does meet all the requirements of the games, but the video is always screwed up. Specifically, a game called The Punisher. I believe it has the same issues as Xpand Rally, but I can't tweak the files at all. A game that is some where in between is called Immortal Cities : Children of the Nile. The game play is great, but when you are at the main menu of the game acts like Xpand Rally did before I fixed it and how the Punisher does. http://www.mercurycapri.com/untitled.jpg There is an example of how the menu looks. the rest of the game is fine. Interestingly, the demos of the games do the same thing as the retail versions. One game, still in demo and has the same requirements as all these games, works without any problems. I've tried all 3 drivers from SiS (3.08, 3.10 and 3.57) but to no avail. I've tried overriding the refresh rate in DXDIAG, it doesn't help. I've tried setting the adapter refresh rate to optimal, default and specific refresh rates, but it doesn't help. I've also tried the UniVGA3 driver from SiS, it didn't do anything. I've even tried hex-editing the EXEs looking for some kind of hard-coded refresh rate, but I can't locate them. I am using DirectX 9c. Other games with the same kinds of specs don't have these problems. I'm not a hard core gamer, but the few games that I do play I would like to work. Getting another video card is not an option. The Xabre 200 is onboard the mainboard and there isn't an AGP slot. Other than this new twist with the newest games, it works flawlessly. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
