Cannot get the game to run :(


#1

Hi there,

Today I bought Democ 2 via Steam, and after 5 minutes it was all ready to play.

However each time I try to run the game I get an error saying D3D error, so I can’t even get the game to start.

I am guessing it has something to do with the fact I run Windows 8, but even in Vista/XP compatability mode this does not solve the problem.

I have an Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTS, and my drivers are updated.

I run my Computer on an HDTV as my monitor, if that has anything to do with it I don’t know.

Some old posts put their error logs in their post so here is mine;

Initialising Direct Draw
Attempting fullscreen mode
Creating Context at 1024 768 32
Forcing Fallback Init
Attempting Fallback Init
SetDisplayMode
DDERR_UNSUPPORTED

That’s all the info I can think of, let me know if you need anything else, really wana try this game, thanks!

Check w Steam first. They should provide primary system support (because their stuff is modded to integrate their online installation).
