Howdy everyone...been AWOL for a bit. I was playing a game in XP recently and tried to start another. I got an error claiming my video card does not have directdraw. Another games claimed it did not have direct3D and I know it has both, it's an Nvidia GT1030.
Then it came back to me, we don't have an XP driver for a GT 1030 yet. Has anyone attacked the problem recently? I have read that Nvidia uses a new series of drivers for the 1030 but I have it running on XP at a basic level and it will play games using Scummvm.
In dxdiag, it indicates directdraw as being OK but no direct3D.
I have a bigger problem, however. I want to run softice on my 32-bit XP but it too complains of no directdraw. If I recall, it would run basically on a GT730 but I have other issues. Softice is a great 32-bit debugger but it's very high maintenance.
I don't want to keep swapping video cards but I may have to. Or does anyone know of a decent video card that will run on XP and allows W7 to play newer games? I dual boot XP with W7 and W10 and it's not convenient to keep swapping cards.
