The Saboteur problem

Post by vladek on Fri 05 Jul 2013, 23:58

Hi there. I have a problem regarding the game: The Saboteur.
After i downloaded and installed the game, and when i try to start the game, i get an error:

The Saboteur is unable to continue due to an error initializing your graphics hardware. 

I have windows 7 and an ATI Radeon x1600 series graphic card(latest driver). I installed the latest patch and cracked. I tryed multiple fixes that i found on the internet, but non of them helped.
Can someone Help  me with that?
Tnx.


P.S.:newfag:

Hello,

Is your PC compatible at all: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri ? (Run test)
Are you on a laptop or a desktop PC?

It says that my graphic card isn't good enough to run that game. But why can i normally play other games that also require a better graphic card (like cod:black ops)? I never had that problem before.
I'm on a desktop PC.

Hello,

A "better" (Read: more expensive) graphic card doesn't always guarantee compatibility with all games. Even the best cards can cause issues with some games.

Anyway, is your PC 32- or 64-bit? And why did you update the game? Have you tried playing the game without patching it?

My PC is 32-bit.
I tried to run the game with and without patching it, but the same error appears.

Hello,

Please use this tool to get the latest version of your GPU drivers: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/auto_detect.aspx
If possible, choose Custom and "Clean Installation" during the installation wizard.

Remember to restart your PC after updating!

Hello,

Can you kindly post a screenshot of the Can You Run It? page? Specifically the "Graphics" part.

Hello there,

No, that shouldn't be the cause.
I don't know any other suggestions other than getting another GPU, I'm afraid.

You can try again, just to be sure:

1. Remove the game using Your Uninstaller! Pro from www.games4theworld.org . Use the "Super Mode".
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall the game as follows: open the .rar file you downloaded using only WinRAR, which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org . (If you use any other software than WinRAR, like WinZip or 7-Zip, the files will usually get messed up!)
After opening the .rar file using WinRAR, select all the files in it and drag & drop them to an empty folder on your Desktop. When the extraction has finished, close the .rar file and open the folder on your Desktop. 
Now start by reading the included "# Installation Guide.txt", and you should be able to get the game to work yourself.

4. Test the game.

Hello there,

You're welcome.
Sorry I couldn't help, I think it's just an incompatibility problem.

Good luck though and please let us know if there's anything else we can help you with!
