Oh Spider.
"This application has failed to start beacuse d3dx9_31.dll was not found."
How sweet. d3dx9_27.dll is included, and _31 is required. Great. Okay, I renamed the dll and it started. And once again it's out of video memory.

And still out of video memory. I really need to know if this game can work with 128 Mb of video memory. Because if it can, I need to scrap my official Catalyst drivers (released Nov. 17) and look for something else. I have Radeon 9600.
