We have a Parhelia 256 here for testing. This card had been tested previously and showed no problems that I can recall. I'll install it and try again today.

The failure is happening when you load the helicopter because we use a graphical effect to do the shadows on the of the heli rotor. That graphical effect is trying to use some feature that your graphics card or driver does not support, and that causes our world to come crashing down...

Can you provide which version driver that you are using for your test? There are several current versions floating around.... The latest one (.038) just came out 7 sept. 05. There is also an "old" beta version for Direct X9. I've tried it before, but didn't really like it, but if this is the one that works???

Thanks,


Patrick

Nope, I was wrong. We do have that card. It does work with photofields, but it does not work with helicopters. I get the same error message that you do.

It is a relatively easy fix. I've filed a bug and hope to get it fixed for the next update.
