Welcome to the world of Wizards and Warriors!

Life in the Gael Serran is good, but occasionally, mundane issues with your computer can prevent you from saving the Gael Serran from the evil lord Cet. To help you through those problems and get you back on your feet, horse, or raft, this thread has been compiled to bring all the known information about technical issues for W&W into one place. If they say it can't be done, check here first -- we may just know a way to do the impossible!

This thread was originally started by Sazerac and added to by a host of people. It has been reorganized to condense it a bit and to provide easier ways for you to find the answers you may need.

How to find your answers
Below this post is an index post, which contains a listing of everything in the thread. Find your symptoms or problem in the index, and you can click on a possible solution found elsewhere in the thread. Find one problem, and you can look for other related problems you may not have discovered yet. Or just read through all the posts -- for some people, that's fascinating reading!

How to post a new issue
Have a problem that isn't covered? Don't fret -- help is just a post away!

Reply to this post and ask your question. Be sure to include all the relevant information, including:

  • What version of Windows are you running?
  • What video card do you have?
  • What version of directx are you using?
  • How much memory do you have?
  • What's the exact problem you're having?
You wanna know what?
Okay, so some of the information we need may be a bit daunting for someone who's not already a chiphead. Here are a couple of shortcuts to find out...
  • Video Card and DirectX Info -- Go to the Start Menu, click on Run, and enter dxdiag and hit return. The needed information will be there; exactly where depends on your version of DirectX.
  • Windows version and memory -- Right click on My Computer and select Properties. The first screen shows the Windows version on top, and the amount of memory on the bottom.
Give us everything we need to know about your system and problem, and we can probably help you through it. Or at the very least, we can commiserate with you about it at the Boogre Bar.

Now, go forth, find the answer to that pesky problem, and get on your way to the Mavin Sword.

The Gael Serran needs you!
