Default Geoforce GT 600: can it work with DirectX 6 games?

Hi all,

I have a PC with a geoforce GT 600 video card, and Windows XP 32 bit.
The videocard works fine, and Direct X 9 games run ok.

However, I tried to install Worms Armageddon, an old title which
requires Direct X 6, and it doesn't work: the game starts, but the
colours soon get all messed up and the games freezes.

Can it be a compatibility issue with DX6? Does my graphics card
support DX6? Is there anything I can do?

Thanks!

Older games don't always cooperate with XP. Do you have the Worms v3.6.29.0
beta patch installed? It is apparently required for XP compatibility.

I'll try, thanks for the link.

However, I'm inclined to think it's more about the video card than the
o.s. : my previous machine ran XP, and the same game used to work just
fine.
