Hardware is the physical portition of the computer, whilst software is the stuff you see on the screen.

Also, pretty much every graphics card these days is a hardware 3D accelerator.

Please tell us your computer specification (CPU (processor), GFX (graphics) card, amount of RAM memory...) so we can help you better.

It's usually at the top-most slot... But seriously, I believe you can find out what GFX card it is by right-clicking on the desktop, selecting "properties", selecting the "settings" tab, clicking on the "advanced" button and selecting the "adapter" tab. You can see the name of your GFX card there.

Eurgh... Please, don't triple-post... Nobody likes that... Just use the effin' "Edit" button in the top-right corner of your prev. post...

I'll edit the info I find on the Matrox card to this post.

Edit: Yes, I believe I see it now... You have the wrong drivers.

Now, here are the links where you can download the drivers for Win9x/ME, WinNT4, Win2k/XP and Linux.

Hopefully this helps.

Have you installed the latest DirectX (9.0c)? If not, do that now. If you have it, however, try changing the Wazzal setup (There should be a separate .exe file for that in the Wazzal directory).

#

Well, if it still refuses to work, you'll just have to accept that it doesn't work on your computer. Sorry.
