Hi, If you selected to change sky and had probs, then this often causes probs. Re-install, do NOT touch sky etc, leave as is. Not sure if you are using video card or Intel on-board graphics. I have found onboard graphics to work on various machines, though, as said, if changing sky it can cause strange graphic presentation.

Have you tried different drivers, does links recognize the onboard graphics?

Do you have a cheap processor or a lack of ram pushing your onboard graphics? Have you thought about using a computer with a real video card? Or installing a video card in the computer you have? Is this a laptop?

We can't see what you have, don't know what steps you have taken, and the information you have provided is minuscule. Combine those factors and the odds of us solving your dilemma are low.

The more information given, the better the odds of success.

When I purchased this computer new and then upgrade the video card with a new Nvidia card, there was already an update to the new card I purchased. Just saying.

Regardless of driver no, important to have the right screen resolution for both monitor and game. They don't have to be the same, but one must find which game/screen resolution works best. This may mean a variety of different combinations.

Problem solved from proshop@linkscountryclub: Go to Links 2003 folder and rename SKIES folder to SKIES.BAK.

Seems then that you have disabled the sky feature then.
