Solved: 6 Years, 7 Months ago RE: About ati radeon x1650 power color compatibility

Hi,
I tried to update the driver but when I downloaded an update on ATI site, it "killed my graphics" : after I found the original CD install driver & I saw the card was an ATI Radeon X1650 PRO : the pilote I found on the ATI site was not compatible.
On the CD needed to install : NET 2.0, microsoft c++ 2005 redist (between others).
So I reinstalled with the original CD and my graphic "were reborn".

I won't try any updates anymore for this card : it's too hard to update for this card.

So after this adventure I tried to reload Amnesia with low quality options but it didn't worked : an error message appeared :
FATAL ERROR : Renderer #0 not initialized. Make sure drivers are up to date.

And this is the log file :

I don't understand all the lines but I read some lines and understood that my driver is obsolete.

If it's the case, no need to put my older cards Radeon 8500 or 9200 no ?

Thanks for reading.

Yeah...the other two cards you mentioned are really old and haven't been updated since 2006.

Well this card is old and supports up to OpenGL 2.0 when the game requies at least 2.1. Normally, with the latest driver which is this(Catalyst 10.2 - Download "Option 1 - Full Software Suite"):

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/wi...ng=English

and update v1.2 could work but I don't expect really something from this.

The driver above should not cause any problems to the system. What problems are you seeing?

Solved: 6 Years, 7 Months ago RE: About ati radeon x1650 power color compatibility

Hi,
I made the updates but always nothing. The leuncher doesn't load, before it ran : I acceeded the config before lauching the game.

I think I've found but I'm not sure : my RAM is 1.43 Go, I read on the site that the game wants 2Go.
I have 2 locations for my RAM : must I buy 2 RAM x 1 Go for the game to work ?

Before the update the launcher loaded with no matter : I saw the Audio/Video config and was able to touch the params. Now it's worst.
& I can't launch the game Open Arena which worked really fine before the update.

I think I should have another card, different than the x1650.
Before my screen works, I had to use the Boot CD to repair Windows & after it worked fine.
I never had difficulties before for graphic cards & it's so frustrating.
I'm sad to see it doesn't work.

It should be cool you tell me which graphic card should I use without encoutring any problems.

Thanks in advance. Have a nice week-end. Regards, Gizmo.

you need a new system, it is old apparently. You need new graphics card, new ram and probably...a new computer.

Hi,
It makes a lot of new in 1 post there...
I need a new salary too.

Nevermind I definitively lost the hope of playing Amnesia 1 day.
Not a matter, I'll just play other 256 colors games.

Is there any patch for radeon 9200 or 8500 ?

Thanks in advance. Regards, Gizmo.

no there isn't. These cards are even older. Forget the ram. Most probably a new gpu will do the trick. This game can be played even with an 80 euros card.

Hi,
The matter is I don't buy often games : I like survival-horror games : Amnesia is the 1st game which asks recent cards.
80€ for the new card, 20€ for the game.
80 + 20 = 100 € ! This is expansive for playing 1 game & don't need the graphic card after.
Sorry for my answer but I must count.

Have a nice week-end. Regards, Gizmo.

the game normally costs 20€ and not 40€. Also, this graphics card will not be for this game only but for all the other that you might play too. Anyway, that is not my concern. Have a nice weekend too...
