I've finished both D1 and D2 long time ago, but, with D3 in production, my ARPG finger now itches.
As my computer is 6 years old and I'm not ready for an expensive change (so no Torchlight), I decided to retry an old game called Darkstone.
Does anyone know it? I've played it about 10 years ago (!).
It wasn't too bad, or at least so I remember (apart for the terrible savegame system).
Unfortunately, I'm getting a bad graphical error that prevents me to play even with the patched game.
Some 2D elements are heavily pixelated, expecially some important text!
Did anyone ever encounter this problem and managed to fix it?
Thanks Kavlor for the answer.
Unfortunately, I've already tried the compatibility mode with no avail.
I've also tested some of the Nvidia general settings, but again, zero improvements.
Maybe it's a directx problem? :/
Does VirtualPc support 3d games? I use Vmware but I doubt that Darkstone could run there without a real card.
Oh, I didn't know there was a subforum for these.
Can someone move this thread to avoid doubles?
It seems you just need any version of Win7 (except the starter version). Didn't they restrict it to Win7 Professional and Premium before? I tried it 2 years ago (Win7 Home Premium) and I couldn't install it for that reason. Maybe I should retry it...
When reading on, I don't understand the restrictions on the guest OS. Does it need a CD/DVD of an OS of the mentioned kinds in order to run the guest OS in question? Or can I just not select certain variants of the guest OS, depending on the host OS in certain cases? For example, if I only have Win7 Home Premium, I cannot select Win7 variants with more features as a guest OS? Can I select Vista on Win7 Home Premium?
