problem with video card or something else???

Ok, I've got this game called Worms Armegeddon that I've had for a long time. Well there are 3 different video settings you can play on; 640x480, 800x600, or 1024x768. Well on my old computer I could play on 800x600, but on my new computer I can only play on 640x480. I've got other games that I play on 800x600.

Can anyone tell me what might be wrong?

Well i would blame it on XP.. but i did a quick search and could find anything regarding any problems on XP, and the sys req even list XP.

However, there was a german site i found (couldnt read it of course) but the title was XP patch...

might want to check and see if there are any patches for XP.

thanks Trey, I'll try to find something for it

Actually, I should probably try the game maker's website first to see if they have something for it
