Cannot start the demo

Titus (guest) 4 years ago
Hi.
I'm trying to run the demo on WinXP, pretty decent system confiuration, and the game just closes instantly after starting. What should I do to start it?

It's probably crashing because it either cannot find your 3D graphics hardware, or your sound driver. It shouldn't require anything special, all it needs is DirectX 9 to be installed, and a 3D card with a driver installed.

It is possible that the game has made a log about what went wrong, if you want to, you can look for them at "My Documents\Driftmoon\logs". But if it crashed, it's possible that it didn't do anything.

If you do get it running, I'm very interested in knowing what it was.

Yep, the issue was that my DirectX was not updated
Graphics: Initialize
Graphics: Start full screen
Graphics: Direct3DCreate9
Video card name NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
Graphics: Create device
.\view.cpp(541) : Error: (DX) D3DERR_OUTOFVIDEOMEMORY - Out of video memory

Cheers, it works now.

Wow, out of memory because directx was not updated!
Thanks for the info, I think I can use it to add a helpful message to it.
