Demo won't load

posted by Y.B on - last edited - Viewed by 144 users

Hey guys,

I have DirectX 10, using NVIDIA on Vista. I recently downloaded the demo but keep getting an error massage:

(This is hebrew, but the point is I get an APPCRASH massage right after I click on 'Launch game!' in the game menu, and as far as I know both drivers and directx are up to date..)

P.S - I do see the skull icon for few moments before the crash.

Help?? :(

    try reinstalling, and choose to update directx. You never know what a little file update can do.

    I'll give it a shot. Let's start with some information about your system.

    Please start dxdiag:
    Windows XP: Go to your start menu and click on run. Type in "dxdiag" and hit enter
    Windows Vista: Press the windows key on your keyboard or click on the start menu. Type in "dxdiag" and hit enter.

    Now click on the button that says "save all information".
    It will prompt you to save a file. Save it where you can find it.


    Now you have two options to make it accessible to us. Pick the one that works best for you:
    [LIST=1]
    [*]If you know how, you can zip the file and attach it to a message.

    [*] You can upload it to Rapidshare and copy the link to the file into a new message.
    [/LIST]

    Here's probably the reason for your crashes:

    Current Mode: 1280 x 800 (16 bit) (59Hz)

    Your displays color depth needs to be 32 bit.

    You should also update your drivers:

    Card name: NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300
    Driver Version: 7.15.0010.9735 (English)
    Driver Date/Size: 11/22/2006 09:29:00, 3055616 bytes


    Description: øî÷åìéí (Realtek High Definition Audio)
    Date and Size: 11/23/2006 08:15:00, 1652968 bytes


    The easiest way should be downloading and running the lenovo system update tool and updating all drivers it suggests.

    If you do that, could you please make and upload another dxdiag afterwards?
    I am really interested in how well that tool works, and it enables me to see what it has changed.

    Have you updated the drivers too?

    To make it run smoother try reducing the graphics level. If that's not enough you can reduce the resolution as well.
