    M&M = Might & Magic? That looks like a good game.
    I might try it out..(I love RPGs).

    Anyway..

    -Are you sure they require DirectX?
    -Some games allow the switching of APIs (That is,
    There might be a way to change the games' settings
    so it uses something other then DirectX).
    -[b]What exactally is the error message? ..Happens?[/b]

    If M&M was released before XP, then you may need to
    set compatibility modes.

    You could also try to post this in a more relivant
    forum (such as a game site).[/blue]
