directX problem.

September 26, 2009 at 09:22:59
Specs: Windows Vista, stuff
I've been getting the message lots of others
have been getting where games like source
won't play because there is a proglem with
DirectX. I've tried lots of different things to fix
this problem but none seen to work. I just
recently tried to reinstall it using safemode but
i get an error. This is what it says:

That is the error i get installing Dx10, and dx9 just doesn't
install. Goes through the install but doesn't actually do
anything. Goes right from "click next to install" to "files were
installed properly" in a split second.

An internal system error occurred.
Please refer to Dxerror.log and DirectX.log in your windows folder
to determine the problem.

That's what it says when i install dx10.

to install directx 9, you need to uninstall dx 10 first ( you can do it with control panel )

what do you mean "is it backwards compatible?"

The debug message is shown when you have crashed out from the game and try to log in again. It is supposed to be sent to Cipsoft so they can evaluate it, and when it is shown, you are requested to send it to them.

In the meantime, while you apparently have problems running the DX9 option (DX10 is not supported for this 2D game), you can try running in OGL mode. Lower the ingame FPS to around 50.

I do run opengl, but dx gets more fps and runs crisper. Thus why
i'd like to run it is directX.

CIP are aware of the problem and recently ran a test server just to check those problems out. Hopefully it will be resolved to the autumn update.

It seems like especially Nvidias newer drivers for DX10 compliant GFX cards causes problems running with the game.
