Maybe you need to install it. PhysX is used in some games even though if you don't have an Nvidia video card. You can download the latest version here:

and what does your technical issues have to do with the game? So it's not the game that sucks, but the fact that you can't even play it.

Please stop bashing games directly for its technical issues, rather than its actual gameplay. You should've titled it: This game sucks because it won't start, or something along that line. If you've had enough time with it and find it does indeed suck, then your title would've been appropriate.

I dont' even know why I'm wasting my time typing this ♥♥♥♥.

All other games work without physx, even those that say they support it. Im not going to install one due to it would reduce my fps even on those games that dont actually even use physx. I shall wear my tinhat proudly.

What a silly ideology.

Well, what you're saying just right there is stupid, and it shows how much you don't know about the physics engine PhysX. The games that use it, only need the files to work properly, so the installation is necessary. It is disabled by default in non-Nvidia cards, and can be adjusted/enabled/disabled in Nvidia cards. It is also a hardware accelerator, it takes advantage of the processing power of the Nvidia cards that support it.

It is better explained on Wikipedia. Please read it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physx

Hey, if he doesn't want to play a game he paid for because he can't be bothered to download a file, why argue with him? You can't fix stupid.

The Nvidia PhysX is required in many games. This is a perfect physics environment which is good to use even if it not hardware accelerated. The game MUST install PhysX-9.12.0613-SystemSoftware package when you first start it from your library. And if install is success there must not occur any problems. Anyway you can update the PhysX package manually to more recent version, just download the installer from http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx_system_software.html and install it after downloading.

Hello all, I am in need of some assistance I am getting the following error when launching the game in Steam. The error in full is.

Faulting application name: game.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x509a7d03
Faulting module name: pazizaku.dll, version: 5.70.41.2, time stamp: 0x509a8680
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x01d986b4
Faulting process id: 0x199c
Faulting application start time: 0x01ce19d88e6f7997
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Testament of Sherlock Holmes\game.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Testament of Sherlock Holmes\pazizaku.dll
Report Id: cd4e08eb-85cb-11e2-b112-d4bed90cf3fc

Troubleshooting: What I have done so far is checked data integrity, done a complete unistall/reinstall. I have tried the above physix fix just to cover bases also I have deleted the .ini, .exe and .dll in question and redownloaded them to no avail. The error persists any ideals?

Thank You for your time.

Noobkilla101, it looks like your game can't launch with the 3-rd party DRM module fault. You can try to turn off the antivirus or firewall before launching the game

Hello fella's thanks for the feedback. Apparently my Anti virus AVG was blocking it which is weird since it doesn't have a firewall on it, just my windows firewall which i had checked and verified. After adding an exception in the anti virus itself or turning it off worked fine. Thanks
