Exclamation Re: Spooge Driver Problem? Solution Here

Ok I've seen this problem everywhere even though i haven't got it, there is a solution but it's long winded and i'm gonna copy it. Enjoy.

Symptoms: Game won't start, error message stating that "spooge driver not found, verify that directX is installed" is displayed.

Problem: Your graphics card is not being initialized correctly by the game.

Possible solutions:
Before you start your own "spooge driver" thread, please try the following three things.

1. Make sure that your card can actually run Dawn of War. Here's an (incomplete) list:

Cards that will run Dawn of War
-ATI Radeon 8500 and above
-Nvidia Geforce 2 and above

Cards that will not run Dawn of War
-Intel integrated graphics chips
-S3 chip family of integrated cards
-Matrox Parhelia family

Note that there are a few exceptions.
Remember, you need a card that is Hardware T&L capable.


2. Update your video card drivers. This is the number one most common fix for this problem. The latest versions of the video drivers can be downloaded here (http://www.ati.com/support/driver.html) for ATI cards and here (http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp) for nvidia.

3. Check if your mainboard chipset drivers are installed and up to date. We've seen quite a few cards running in PCI mode due to the chipset drivers not being installed or totally out of date. This really slows your cards down.

If you can't find your problem adressed in a thread, create a new one. Create it in the Dawn of War Technical Assistance Forum. Please include the warnings.log and the dxdiag.txt in your first post (see how to find those files here (http://forums.relicnews.com/showthread.php?t=41632)) along with a clear description of your problem.
