//======================================================================================= // Posibilty #1 //======================================================================================= Sounds like you have Windows(Microsoft Updates) set to automatic. This might have allowed an update to go through creating your video driver 'or' DirectX to be modified. //======================================================================================= // Posibilty #2 //======================================================================================= A virus was installed as it crashed some needed file lines, creating a bug in the function of the computers functionality, or modified the defaulted settings to disorganized settings. //======================================================================================= // "Fix" For Posibilty #1 and 2 //======================================================================================= Do a system Restore go to: Start\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\System Restore Click on System Restore to activate the process. Click 'Next' at the ---(Restore My Computer to an earlier date and time) There is a calender ... change it to a date before this issue came up. Click on the line that says 'System Checkpoint' Click 'Next' Click 'Next' Now it will restore to before this issue started. This alone might resolve both of these issues, though if it does not hit me up again...

This means it is due to the version of software you are using as your video driver, as well as DirectX9. Before you do the next step PLEASE... go to 'Right click' MyComputer(sometimes on Desktop, and others in the Start Menu) choose Properties/Hardware/DeviceManager click the '-' sign next to 'Display Adapters' and write down the exact name of the product name. After you do this continue below...
Try uninstalling the driver for the video, and attempt the default Windows driver, or download an older driver for the video adapter u use. If that does not work... It is hard to locate, though it would be in your best interest to look for the other versions of DirectX(8 was a great version). There were not any real known issues with any other versions of DirectX, until DirectX9. After it was released, and Windows ataches the installed Driver for the video adapter, there were many many many issues for all video cards. Microsoft, being the sh*tty company they are, refused to help the video products in this attempt of an upgrade, leaving many older cards working like crap(generally in older games). The easy fix would be to purchase a new video card for 100.00 and run with updated software, as well as updated hardware.

I forgot to mention... I had... had, the same issue, so do many people that used to play Rune. What do you honestly think was a HUGE part of Rune's diminishing. DirectX9, by Microsoft for Winblows, was the final straw for Rune1.00. I would say about 40% of Rune, at the time of DirectX9's release, was doomed by this exact issue. If you see graphics that are like running in a map with a maddening framerate... like ur comp is not handling it... runs for 1/2 a second, then freazes, then goes for a 1/2 a second, then goes again... you too have this issue.
You can all go thank Microsoft for this issue. Your computers are set to take in all their data, files, updates, etc... automatically. This is crap. I will tell you why.
Picture this... ur at ur comp, and all of a sudden something doesn't work anymore... 1st place to look is Microsoft(winblows) code, or winblows updates to see what the issue is. If you use the System Restore issue(recommended for the noobs-the mid class of computer users) you will see the activity!... The Installations!~ ... On your computer. As computer techs, we go to many places to locate data mods, or other intrusions. Though the fastest way to keep track of 'most' the program installations in your computer is using the System Restore utility. If you want to you can download a program and run it... send me a file of the log, and I can tell ya what all you are lookin at. Best of luck, I will give ya my time... I know it is frustrating. For that... is what made me choose my path. I am a newtork analys for a company in california. Just so you know where I come from.
The program name is scary, most never reply to a post where I recomend it. Though get this... You know where to find me. I will show you how to find out where I live in 3 seconds, and give u my phone number... //======================================================================================= TO ALL THAT READ THIS!!! THIS PROGRAM HAS THE WORST SOUNDING NAME THERE IS, THOUGH IT DOES MAKE SENCE AS WELL. //======================================================================================= Hijackthis is the program name... It reads... not does... what it's name is. It reads all the processes, and programs running in your computer. No, not like Winblows does, more like a great software that is looking to produce great networks! //======================================================================================= If you trust what I am sayin... click on this link ini-honor-trophies.com/hijackthis.zip //======================================================================================= AGAIN... U KNOW RIGHT WHERE TO FIND ME. run this program and send me a log file of it.
