My Motion M1400 just arrived yesterday, and after installing all my stuff (Win7, drivers, Chrome, Total Commander), I wanted to play WoG too, as it has low resource requirements. After installing, I ran into a problem: the game simply won't run. My Mehoo has a 1.1GHz CPU, 512M
RAM, and an integrated Inter video card (what should handle WoG) But When I try to run it, the game tells me "No Direct3D hardware found!". Then a debug message appears, containing this message:
Exception: Access Violation (code 0xc0000005) at address 0049D4D1 in thread 7C8<br />Module: WorldOfGoo.exe<br />Logical Address: 0001:0009C4D1<br /><br />0012FCD4 0049D4D1 0001:0009C4D1 WorldOfGoo.exe<br />Params: 2E8DE622 FFFFFFFF 00000000 0012FE60<br /><br />StackWalk failed (error 299)<br /><br />EAX:00000000 EBX:00000000 ECX:2E8DE1CA EDX:00200174 ESI:0167FE18 EDI:0012FD08<br />EIP:0049D4D1 ESP:0012FB18  EBP:0012FCD4<br />CS:001B SS:0023 DS:0023 ES:0023 FS:003B GS:0000<br />Flags:00210216<br /><br />Windows Ver: NT 6.1  Build 7600<br />

Does anyone have a solution, guess or anything on this? l want to play badly :s

Have you tried downloading and installing the latest version of DirectX?

The web installer is available here.

Yes I've tried it already, but it is a problem with the video card I think. It can't detect the Direct3D device, so it is definitely note DX problem. Is there any non-Direct3D version of WoG, let's say an openGL Windows one?

Direct3D is part of DirectX as far as I know. If Direct3D doesn't work, don't you have trouble running other games too?

Unfortunately not. But I don't think that is needed; the Direct3D version should work well even on moderate hardware.
