You have a really low end CPU with an integrated video card. The system spec requirements say the game needs a processor running at 2.2 GHz and yours only runs at 2.1 GHz. It also says you can use an integrated video chip as long as it meets the pixel and vertex shader requirements. I assume you have a minimum of 2 MB of RAM? Does the game have any options to turn down video options?

AMD/Intel dual-core processor running at 2.2 GHz.
RAM: 2048 MB.
OS: Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10.
VIDEO CARD: ATI/NVIDIA dedicated/integrated or mobile graphic card,...
PIXEL SHADER: 4.0.
VERTEX SHADER: 4.0.

Hi Draclvr

I am not fully up to speed with the techie side of computers, I know that I have 8Gb of memory,but as for the rest of it I am in the dark, as for the game options they are very limited, to sub titles on or off, and 2 options on screen display size

cheers

Unless Jenny has some other suggestions, I'm thinking your processor and video chip aren't up to the task for this game.

Also, is there an option to turn on/off a custom cursor? I find that turning that off sometimes helps with a sluggish/jittery mouse.

Hi all

There are very limited options for this game, it’s either use the mouse or control pad, it’s looking very likely as you have said Draclvr my laptop is not up to playing the game

Looks like trying another older games I have

Many thanks
SAFC

Hi safc,

I found this tip for people having problems with the ABC mouse control, maybe you could give it a try:

DISABLE MOUSE ACCELERATION
Try disabling the Enhance pointer precision option. To do this, please follow these steps:
Windows 10:
Press WinKey+R, and in the Run window type:
control
After that press Ok, and navigate to Mouse -> Pointer Options, then make sure that Enhance pointer precision is unchecked, and click OK

Also: If the above tip did not work: In the game itself in the Options menu click on the Video tab and select Quality = Low and see if that works.

good luck

One other possible solution if tips 1 and 2 do not work: Right Click on your ABC Game Icon and choose "Troubleshoot Compatibility", sometimes Microsoft is pretty good at helping the game to work, it is worth a try.

Aha! So there WERE options in the game to lower video! Excellent, I had a feel that would work if the option was there.

Your welcome Marian, I know all the Moderators in this forum work so hard to help us, to keep us up to date and so on, so it feels good to be able to help whenever I can, it does not happen very often because the Mods. here are on the ball and quick to respond...
So again, thanks to all the Mods. and all other members who help out.
Stay safe everyone. And an advanced Happy Mothers Day to all.
