The Punisher* Game Is Not Playable

The Punisher* game is not playable. When the game is executed, the user is asked to allow the game to configure their video card. When they click "OK," the following error appears:

"Unable to detect a video card that supports hardware transform and lighting (T&L). The Punisher requires hardware T&L to run."

This game requires a graphics adapter with hardware T&L (Transform and Lighting) support to run. The Intel® 82945G Express Chipset graphics controller does not support hardware T&L. T&L can be done by the processor (in software) with acceptable performance in most cases, but since the game specifically checks for hardware T&L, it fails to run.

This applies to:
