    I tried this on another forum but didn't get much help.

    My brother plays on RCT3 (Roller Coaster Tycoon 3) and until I got a new graphics card (XFX 1gb 4890) it worked fine in vista 32bit. But since upgrading to this new card and installing the latest drivers it wont work.

    I have tried:
    1. Compatibility mode.
    2. Changing AA to 4x and less
    3. Installing DX9 March redis although I already have DX10.
    4. Installing the direct x9 from the disk but due to me having a later version the installer wouldn't do anything.
    5. Installing the new 9.8 catalyst.

    Now I'm really stuck on what to do, does anyone have any suggestions.

    Thanks. :thumb:
