I am unable to play GSB due to the fun “Unable to Initialize 3D Engine” errors. After trying to restart, change the prefs.ini, and, finally uninstall the game (I’m on 1.47), I ran into yet another error:
This error shows for the main game as well as all expansions.
wow, thats a pretty catatstrophic failure there. What video card do you have? and how does it run other games?
I geuss it could be shaders that aren’t working, but you should still see the main menu screen fine in that case. How far does it get?
actually, failing to get device caps is pretty much a total wipeout. Ar you sure your video card drivers are properly installed?
As far as I know, they’re installed correctly. I mean, I was playing up to v1.47 with no problems, though I did have to scale things back a little bit because the card on my laptop is integrated (Intel Mobile GM965 Express).
