Look further nomore, I've gather the solution here ! and help make it easy to understand even with those who are new at this computer thingy.
Symptom : press play : Failed to initialize Direct3D with current setting
Solution : Go to option -> uncheck "Exclusive fullscreen"
If doesn't work : Also uncheck "tessellation"in the "advance" tab
Sympton : Couldn't press "option" as the menu crashed
I've posted my registry entries at
You can check that there's no funny business there.
We have at least one report of this working!
Edit: Here's a minimal graphics version: http://pastebin.com/CZm82hNC
1. go to the link and copy the message ( raw data )
2. Make .txt file anywhere you want, name it whatever you want.
3. Paste the message into the file and rename the .txt into .reg
4. double click the .reg and press accept and such, after all the message are gone, you should be able to access Option.
5. Follow first solution.
- If that doesn't work :
3.1 double click .reg doesn't do anything, text version of that file still pop up. -> you have to go to view(?) -> folder and search options -> uncheck "hide known extension" -> you should see .txt after .reg now, delete .txt after .reg and the file should become registry file.
Symptom : Nothing works ! even uncheck everything and put everything to low, it's still NOT WORKING !!
Solution : Make sure your computer can run the game ( check "http://www.systemrequirementslab.com"
to see if your computer met minimum requirement )
Solution #2 : Update your graphic drivers and install latest DirectX software.
Solution #3 : If you are using Ati radeon HD version 5XXX, you might experience the same problem as I do.
******** ONLY DO THE FOLLOWING IF YOU STILL GET DIRECT3D ERROR AFTER UNCHECK EXCLUSIVE FULLSCREEN IN THE OPTION **************
Note : I install the following in order of the link provided. and this is NOT guarantee to work since my PC seems to have special issue.
< I install this one because someone on other forum said it's better than catalyst and it actually is >
< Tried to play after this one, Direct 3D issue still there >
< Install this one, during the installation, my screen turn black and flicker then went blue screened, the reboot following doesn't seems to have any damage on my computer and somehow fix the direct3d problem entirely>
Now i can play the game.
side note : My computer REFUSE to update any graphic drivers no matter how hard I tried, somehow those 3 drivers software manage to get passed through the problem for me.
If any of the problem occur : Start your PC in safe mode with internet, get on to your PC dev's website ( sony, acer, etc ... ) and download their original Video driver software to fix the problem ... Trust me, I went through hell for the past 5 hours to get this game working ... I KNOW my computer can run it and heck yeah it can ... 45+ fps on high setting with tess on isn't bad at all.
