And yes, the game works fine in other PCs. So no problems with the set up file or such things.

from your dxdiag:

Card name: Intel(R) G33/G31 Express Chipset Family

Those cards are not suited for gaming at all.
best to purchase something like an ATI or Nvidia card and play the game without problems.

used to work as techsupport for a 3D online game, and always had people asking me why the game didnt run on their pc as it should. The anwser was always the same: because Intel graphics cards are crap.

Thank you for the response.

PC using Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family board is able to run this game. Any explanations?

My video ram - onboard is 384MB. Pixel Shader is 2.0. Well this is more than enough for this game I suppose.

In a way I accept. Intel boards are crap :|

Anyways, thanks again

The issue with Intel Graphics card is that you cannot say for 100% if they will run the game or not.

Some cards will simply not run the games at all, while others will run the game partially.
As an example from my techsupport days:

Several of the older cards that didn't support pixel shaders, simply refused to run the game.
Several of the newer cards that support pixel shaders version 1.0 and 2.0 ran the game partially. You were able to play but had alot of artifacts, black boxes and weird colors
Some cards ran the game without problems.

It depends on how much of the pixel shader model your card has implemented, which drivers you are using and the game in question.

Informative. Much appreciated.

One last question. Can you please tell me how to figure out the pixel shader version that is implemented? Thanks a ton.
