i REALLY want to try this Myst game but before i play it, a message comes up and says ERROR: Missing Parameter

i X'ed that out and i put my password in and all that stuff, but THEN it brings up the message: PhsX is not installed or a newer version is not installed, so i install it, but it says it agin when i try to play the game

but all its doing is installing and uninstalling the same thing over and over again when it says i dont have the right version installed, what the heck is wrong?

What I'd suggest is, go to the physx site and download the driver from them and install it manually yourself and see if that solves your problem

What's your OS and CPU type? For Vista you have to download the latest version from ageia's homepage. If you own an old AMD processor you can't play Uru. It requires at least an AMD XP with SSE engine.

Please pay close attention to this, while offically the site says AMD Athlon, we've found that physX fails to install on AMD Athlons, and you need an Athlon XP or above to play uru!

No, you don't need Vista to play the game. In fact Uru and Gametap doesn't support Vista yet. You are on your own if you try to run the game under Vista. The best OS for Uru is Windows XP SP2.

Can you tell us the manufactor and version of your CPU? Click on Start / Run and enter dxdiag. The tool should show information about processor.

I have bad news for you: VIA processors aren't supported by PhysX and Uru. You need either an AMD XP or newer or an Intel Pentium 3 or better. http://www.gametap.com/home/myst/game_requirements.html

I have an Intel Centrino Duo 2.0 GHz and a GeForce Go 7600 in my laptop and the PhysX engine won't install either. Sounds like the URU devs should have tested on more than one machine :lol:
