Hi guys, I started playing Splinter Cell (the first one) I played throughout the game mostly fine with the occasional crash error However, since the Oil rig level, I have been getting a weird orange triangle type thingy whenever I move the mouse. It goes away when I move only for it to come back a few seconds later.
I have a Intergrated graphics card (Intel 946GZ)  However it's a 2007 igp. The game is from 2002, and it should work no problem. My card doesn't have the latest graphics drivers, because when I load


Why do you guys think it's playing up. All I want to do is to get past this point, and it's making the game almost unplayable. Because when that comes on, the whole game lags so badly,

thanks

Don't really know. Have you applied the last released patch?

A lot of games just don't work properly on some hardware until patches are applied.

You don't finish describing why you aren't using the latest graphics drivers...?

Install all the patches, and update your drivers. If that doesn't help then it might be hardware related but i doubt it somehow.

Make sure you are using the latest drivers for your card... And since the game is from 2002 it could be something in new cards don't really like it.

It could be a driver issue.

But honestly, the only time I have seen a video glitch like that is when the video card was dying.

Yeah that kind of thing doesn't bode well normally, is it doing anything similar in other games?

Also +1 for installing all game patches and driver updates.
