The graphics in this game is horribly distorted, like there's layer upon layer of everything. Suspects my Geforce card are to blame. Found a patch but no luck. I have the DVD-version but have tried the CD-version with the same problem. I'm on W 98.

Anyone?

Hi Frazap!

I don't know if this will help you ...but you never know. Take a look at my Setup Walkthrough for this game. Keep in mind I wrote it for WINXP but maybe the principles may be modified for your system. The most important thing is the Patch from Cryro.

Hope it helps you

It seems like I had to lower the graphics acceleration in order to get it to play correctly.

Try Pokey's suggestion. If you need instructions, check #7A of Mr. Bill's Troubleshooting Guide.

Thank you all!

I've already tried two different graphics acceleration settings without success.

Inferno: From what I read at your (excellent) page it's the patch I need since the graphics DO "appear split into 6 columns and extremely garbled". I found a patch yesterday that was supposed to be "fan-made" that didn't work. And the patch you link to at your pages is according to Cryo not compatible with the DVD-version. Will try it anyway since as far as I can see the DVD-version and the CD-version of the game installs the same files to the hard drive. Otherwise I guess I'll have to use my CD-version instead.

Thanks again!

The patch I downloaded from
http://www.cryo.fr/flash/support/int/support_patch.php3?id=46

a few months ago was named AT3INT2.0.exe says:

ATLANTIS 3 2.0 PATCH ALL LANGUAGES PC-CD/PC-DVD

so if that's the name of the patch you're using, it is for both the CD and DVD versions. And yes it's for Geforce cards.

Thanks Jenny, but the game I have a problem with is the first Atlantis game, and for that one Cryo states the DVD-version can't be patched. Haven't had the chance to try yet.

Sorry. I guess I'm confusing threads.
I think the DVD version of Atlantis I was prepatched.
