My friend has a Nvidia GeForce 256 and the terrian on generals is black, and I tried to find some drivers for this card on their website but the one I downloaded did not work for him.

Can anyone find the drivers for this card if there are any? Or does he have to live the black terrian bug? Please, help, the game runs fast and good, but its just annoying.

(Edit: As I played it on his computer it would turn white and shift back sometimes.)

I already tried these drivers but it didn't work:

So does this card have drivers or does he have to live with it? Its very annoying when I played, I don't know how he stands it.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.

...

A GeForce 256? i.e. GeForce 1.5? It's time to buy a new card, if that's the case. It doesn't support T&L.

Well it runs Gens like my old 5700 so yah. (It ran just a bit slower than my 7800 GT OC I currently have)

He can't upgrade at the moment and the game isn't so slow so stop telling me how old it is and to get a new card. I knew it would happen and its annoying.

I want help with the problem... So if those are the right drivers, why is he getting installation issues with it? icon_confused.gif

If it worked fine at one point in its life... its drivers...

However I am suspecting the GPU itself cannot render the terrain properly. So thats why i said to get a new one.

Okay, thanks for giving me a actually reason to buy the card.

(He has AGP x4, is there any cheap card that can run Gens/ZH without lag and Empire at War? Maybe some FPS's like C&C Renegade and stuff too?)

QFT!! I've always wanted to acutally do that icon_razz.gif Your first good guess is at your school. The other day I saw a perfect VooDoo 5000 just sitting there in a partially stripped rig in some classroom. I'm so carrying a screwdriver every day to school icon_razz.gif

But ontopic, that card will play Generals just fine icon_smile.gif
