Demo Crashes

Demo version (1.22 in readme.txt) crashes on startup with a D3DEngine Error “CreateDevice:(d3d7)”.

System Specs:

OS: Windows 2000
Motherboard: Asus M2NE-Duluxe (embedded sound card)
Motherboard Bios: Current
Video Card Chipset: nVidia GeForce 7900GT
Video Driver Version: 94.24 (latest driver from nVidia)
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+
DirectX Version: 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904)

Changing settings in “CONFIG.MUF” as recommended on the website has no effect.

Any chance this is a known bug?

I haven’t had any problems with other games, but wouldn’t rule out an OS problem as W2k has been installed for many years on this system.

most likely to be video card driver related, your video card is easily up to running the game, so getting the latest drivers will likely fix it.
