Help with Dark Messiah?!?!?!?!?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just got this game as a christmas present, When I loaded it, It said there was something wrong with some sort of Logo(windows logo) and it said that If i chose to install anyway, it might hurt my system now or in the future..... Being stubborn, I installed it anyway.... after about 10 minutes of playing, it started lagging out really bad and flashing.
Anyone else ever have this logo problem??? how do you fix it?

A screenshot or a full-desciption would be extremely helpful. With this vague of info. the only advice I can give would be to uninstall completely and make sure all your video drivers are updated. Make sure you have directx 9.0c.

Go to Start>Run>dxdiag

Run the tests there and make sure you pass.

the one major problem i had with dark messiah is it would not load at all. turns out in the end that it only supports 1280x1024 rez and my monitor is a 42' 1280x720 rez monitor not worth switching out my 42 inch monitor to play this game. guess ill wait for different rez support from ubi soft and arcane. i know it didnt help with your problem, sorry, maybe someone else has similar problem tho.

Wow, that is really disappointing. I have a 42" 1080i tv and a 32" 720p tv and I am considering moving one of my computers out of my room for permanent residence on one of those TVs, but I really like Dark Messiah and if this crap is going to happen, maybe not.

I know what he's talking about. It's related to signed drivers. When you install Windows, sometimes, it says "This hardware has not pass the Windows logo of compability..." That means that the game is actually trying to install an extra kernel file or something. Does the Logo questions appears in the middle of the installation or for example in the middle of "updating Direct X or Driver X or anything)?

Just do it anyway, anytime windows xp sees a driver that microsofts never seen before (e.g: all of them) it complains so they cant be sued if you install virus/malware laden drivers. If it says this in the middle of an installation of a reputable product (Dark Messiah) from a reputable company (Ubisoft I believe) it should be just fine. But, with this prob, it most likely installed drivers you r card doesnt like, so just download the newest ones from Tweaksrus.com and see how that works.

ok, I deleted the game and installed it again, this time, it didnt tell me anyhing about the logo error.
But when i play, the game is fine untill I get to a specific point. When it gets there, its starts lagging really bad and the sound starts repeating itself like a scratched cd. I tried lowing my core clock speed like other sites said to do but this didnt work, then i turned the antialaising down from 16x to 4x and that didnt work either.
I have a 6800 gs oc graphics card, know what the problem is?????
