I have a problem with Little big adventure 2. The game sets the vgacard to a too high refreshrate. My monitor can't handle it. So my image of the game is "destroyed".

I tried to lower the refresh rate with SDD but the game seems to run in a different "session" and the changes to windows does not affect the game.

Can someone help me?

Okay, then.
Since I have also the game, i know that u cannot choose screencard (directly translated from norvegian) or lower the setting so very much.
Okay (again) what screen do you have, machine and so on?

My monitor is the problem, it's a old 14". Normally i have the refreshrate stand on 60Hz.
My VGAcard is a 6205 and my CPU is a P120.

Is it DOS-based or Win95-based game ? Why do you think that LBA2
plays with refreshrate ?

It's win95 based.

I think it plays with the refreshrate because when i start LBA2 i see line on my screen that are longen then my monitor. The line continue on a lower line

I remember that I solved time ago problem like this, by allowing
to SDD allocate Linear Framebuffer. Maybe I wrong.
Second, if LBA2 Win95-based, then it uses DirectX, right ? What
version you have ? If it is DX5, can you remember, when you installed
it, you replaced video driver as DX5 setup recommended to ?

I Don't know if LBA2 uses DX.

I have installed DX5 with a DX5 video driver.

I can't test the SDD tip because i'm not at home at the moment

This is (for me) worst thing that DX5 does. Try this:
- rightclick on desktop
- select properties
- select settings tab
- click on 'change display' (or smth.)
 it'll bring window with options to change video card driver and
 monitor
- click on change video driver
- from list of compatible, select driver of your video card PRIOR
 to DX5 one.
- click on OK
- Apply

reboot as prompted, try to run LBA2
