In the program window, four renderers failed, and it said "Renderers/RendererNull_win32_vc60_r.dll ... SUCCESS - but excluded from auto selection <Pref# 1>."
I'm running Windows XP.
Whats your system spec ? Card, cpu, ram etc ..
This would help us a lot to pin down your problem.
Sounds to me like a weak gfx card but could also be another problem.
do other 3D games run on your system?
Do you have DirectX and the latest ATI drivers (for OpenGL) installed?
As Kai already said, if Ca3DE is not able to find any renderer at all, that is typically a problem with your system. In your case, it sounds like you don't have the proper ATI drivers - the Windows built-ins don't have the required features even for the minimal renderer.
Yes, I have DirectX and I believe I have good ATI drivers.
There were 5 renderers for windows in the renderers folder in the Ca3dE directory, so it's not that there are no renderers. I don't know a lot about ATI drivers, though. I'll have to check with my dad. He should know.
Normally, if all else fails, the RendererOpenGL12_*.dll renderer should work.
If it still doesn't with the latest driver from ATI, you might try to rename all other renderer dlls except the OpenGL12 one into e.g. RendererCgNV3X_*.dll_ (that is, append a "_" to the end of the name), so that when Ca3DE initially scans the available renderers, only the RendererOpenGL12*.dll is found.
If that works, please let me know. Also note that the graphics will be of much lower quality than you see in the screenshots. However, in order to get good graphics with an ATI board, the RendererARBprogs must work.
(Which in turn requires at least a Radeon 9600, iirc.)
Also please check your desktop display settings. Are you running your desktop with at least 16 BPP (65536 colors or more)?
