Have you updated your sound and video drivers to the latest version? Those are the typical things to check when you're having problems with games. If that doesn't work, then a reinstall might help.

What operating system are you using?

It sounded to me like it's not initializing direct draw properly.

I'd start by dxdiagnostic, it's installed with directx, so you don't need to download anything. Just:

Start menu -> Run -> "dxdiag" OK

Click on the Display tab, run directdraw and direct3d tests. See if it fails any. Go ahead and test the other tabs if it doesn't.

Do you have Japanese unicode set?

Strangely enough, I find that when I have Japanese unicode set Melty Blood doesn't run properly for me.

Haha... Same for me : )

It lags for me if I'm in japanese mode (not if I use applocale though), but it's such an excellent piece of programming that it works fine without applocale or any other bs : )

i know it sounds weird, but have you installed your mainboard's chipset drivers? i had a similar problem before, in addition of the agp being locked at 1x, i found out that windows does have drivers for most chipsets available, but theyR'e pretty limited. fire up your mainboard cd and check that first. then uninstall and reinstall your video card, that might solve the problem. you got nothing to lose anyway..

what i mean is, most of the time there's some agp video drivers on your cd. if those aren't installed, your mainboard is unable to exploit the full capacities of your videocard. and what i meant by removing and reinstalling, i just mean remove your video card drivers, then the software that went with it, then install your chipset drivers, and then re-install your videocard drivers.

Yes, you need to figure out what your motherboard's make and model are, and download the correct chipset drivers. There are many chases the game will not funtion without any AGP port driver. Your chipset should be made my Intel, AMD, ATI, nVidia, SiS, or VIA (we are not talking about your ATi graphics card)... unless you got the odd ball ALi somewhere...

Please post your motherboard make and model, and we can help you track down drivers if you can't find them.

Yes. You would do good to listen to the given advice. It is not guaranteed to solve your problems, but it is very likely it will.

by the way, did you build your machine youself or had a friend do it for you? or id you buy one of those big brand machines like a dell or compaq?

in any case, you must have had a cd or two that came in with your machine, and if it's custom built, you have cd's for probably every parts of it. pop in your mainboard cd and most of the time, it's pretty much all automatic. And as of the games you mention, i'm not familiar with them, but they do require some decent graphic powers, huh? if your computer can't figure out how to use your video card, then you might as well play pong.

If the machine is a brand name machine, post the model here, and we can track down the drivers you need. If its a custom machine, find out the motherboard make and model by opening the case.

Or, you can get Sadra (click here) and use her to find out your motherboard and chipset details. Once you start her up, go to the hardware tab, then computer overview. Under that, you should be able to find out your motherboard and chipset details. Hit the second button in the bottom left that looks like a chart graph to copy those details to the chipboard, then paste them into the forum (use quote tags around it so we can tell it appart from your post!).

Chipset -VIA K8M800-CE Chipset+VIA VT8237R Chipset

jus curious,the ATI catalyst somehow shows at SMARTGART the AGP slot already put at 8x but on dxdiag its still hv problem.does the catalyst acts as a driver? or Directx 9.0c is not compatible with ATIX1300 lol?
