Not Solved Dark Descent crashes on startup

when i attempted to start game the very first time, some window popped up, reporting a problem of some sort, with drop down selection boxes and what not, i think. i ignored and tried to start again. now the launcher stuff popped up, i selected other settings and such, getting same crash every time, the first timer window never showed again. I tried reinstaling the game, changing various game and system settings.


log is attached and also pasting here just in case:

Not Solved RE: Dark Descent crashes on startup

That GPU is very old and might not be able to run the game. It also says GLSL Version 1.10 where Amnesia requires at least 2.0. You can update your drivers but that's all I can suggest. Check out the Graphics Card Troubleshooting Guide with AMD/ATI cards.

i did try those stuffs. maybe would have helped 5 years ago, when amnesia was released and winxp was still the thing. now its no longer supported in too many places. i cant get any driver updates or anything. i guess ill just stick to watching playthroughs on youtube.
