Can't start game :(

Postby theretard » Sun Jun 21, 2009 8:24 pm

I heard about this game recently and downloaded it trying to run it, however I can't seem to do it. I get a direct draw error everytime I start it up (DDERR_UNSUPPORTED). I'm running vista, which I guess might be part of it, also a dual core laptop, is there anything I can do? Do you need more information?

Update your GPU drivers? Looks like a DirectDraw error. Maybe you should reinstall DirectX?

Try hitting F4 right when starting the game to get it into or out of fullscreen mode. No idea if that will help, but its the only thing that comes to mind.

Vista seems to cause 101 errors when it comes to rpgmaker. I've never experienced any, but everyone else seems to have problems.

I know nothing about Vista, but is there some sort of compatibility mode you could run it in?

Try reinstalling it in just the program files not the x86 program files. I have vista home premium 64-bit version so your might have a different x designation. x** I know its different for 32-bit versions, side trail there, but if you reinstall in just the program files file it should work fine. You could also try to set compatibility for the .exe for The Way to xp service pack 2. Doing that let me play the old game Total Annihilation. Hope this helps :)
