    I'm trying to play Age of Empires 3 on my computer. When I try and play I get an error that says it has encountered an error and has to close

    I looked up solutions to this problem, and I found that a possibility is that my graphics card does not support the Hardware Transform and Lighting feature. My graphics card is a GeForce6600 GT OC, and my question is, DOES my card support the Hardware Transform and Lighting feature?

    no, the 6600GT does not have "Hardware Transform and Lighting".

    iirc that is an "old" feature. An example of where older video cards can play older game titles better than some new cards.

    For example an ATi 3850HD is definitely a "better" card than a Radeon 8500... Yet the 8500 will yield higher FPS in Quake3.

    The game is old, it is using old technology that new hardware does not necessarily have legacy support for

    I assume the pic of you is on your computer?
    Drag and drop the pic onto your desktop.
    Then go to this web page:
    http://trashpile.org/

    On that web page, click on Browse and locate the pic from your desktop.
    In the window, click on Open
    On the web page, click on Upload.


    You will get a page that looks like this, but without the red circle:


    [​IMG]

    Copy the link part in the area that I circled in red, and paste it into your reply.

    it seems pretty obvious that this was a scam... i don't recall lew being a c&p viewer, yet in the one thread we have "wayne" lew magically appears.

    seems rather suspect.
