Which Videocards are supported by the simulator?
Posted by eDiver on March 24, 2009 at 2:47 am in Help - FAQ
Currently the eDiving simulator has been tested with the following videocards:
nVidia: Quadro NVS 110M, GeForce 6000, Geforce 7800GT, Geforce 8800GT, GeForce 9600 GT.
ATI: Radeon Express 1100, 9600, Radeon x1800, Radeon 2900, HD3450 or HD4870.
Intel: x3100 chipset (but the simulator will run slow). Make sure you have the most updated drivers from Intel; You can find them here

More powerful is your videocard and smoother the simulator will run :-)

I can confirm that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 running in Quad SLI does not work. After downloading the dive site, it will lock up when you press any key to start the dive. You can hear the water, but visual get stuck on the loading screen.

Hi,
we have a new version (r6) of the simulator coming out at the end of May that SHOULD support low end videocards.

We have been testing successfully this r6 on several PC where r5 ws NOT working.

Once you get r6 let me know if it runs on the GTX295

Specifically, the window should look like the 3rd - 5th screenshots in this article, at least in Windows XP. I believe it is very similar in Vista, though I don't have a Vista install handy at the moment. The first few screen shots show you what to do to get to the screen (though it's quite simple, and bunkerrat's instructions are clear enough).

Microsoft: How to change your monitor resolution in Windows XP

In that particular shot, the video card is an "S3 Trio32/64."

ok... click start...find "run" type in "dxdiag" in the window that comes up click on the display tab that should get you the information you want

Before the release of version 6 all I can see inthe game was the mask, the gauges, map, etc. but vision was black. With the new release I can't see the the reefs, fishes, etc. All I can see is like the blueish color of the water and gauges, mask , etc. My computer uses Intel G33/G31 Express Chipset. Any help?
