"Direct3D9 Device" error
I used to play Loadout a lot, but then stopped playing it during June. When I tried starting it back up now, it instantly Crashes To Desktop and displays an error box: "Failed to create Direct3D9 device."

Anyone else getting this issue? I've tried using Steam to re-check the file integrity, nothing missing there. Still get the issue.

Try reinstalling it? verifying it will only check the games data .. perhaps reinsalling will also reinstall the right directx components that are apparentlly changed for some reason.

What kind of graphics card do you have? Have you tried installing the latest graphics driver?

I am having the same issue! Please help! I have been searching for hours to no avail.

Same here. I think it might be the game trying to display at an incorrect resolution, but I could be completely wrong. I'll keep looking into the problem and post something if I find a fix.

Ive tried changing resolution and stuff :/

Yeah, looking into the reolution wasn't working for me either. What's your OS?

Unfortunately, that is below our min spec, and isn't supported.

Oh, well that's unfortunate. It's not a huge deal because I'll be getting back to a better computer in a week. Thanks for the help!

Hope the new pc works the wonders :P ... replaced my laptop a while ago to... most of the new graphics burned out my eyes, took me 2 weeks to adjust

I was Wondering I have a macbook air and I plan to bootcamp it but is it "beefy" enough to run loadout?

It depends on the model, but I think probably.

Hello. I have lately installed a better version of my graphic driver (from 270.50 to 340.80) and my Graphic Card is NVIDIA GeForce 210 (Auto searched from the website). All of sudden, the installer failed. Now my highest desktop resolution decreased (from 1600x900 to 1280x800). I cannot run games. Internet games gives me "You need to have DX9 Installed...etc", steam games (I tried Loadout,Loadout Campaign and Warframe) gives me "Failed to create Direct3D9 (before this its just D3D9). And other games like Counter Strike : Source (Non-Steam) will launch and immediately go to my desktop without me even noticing it.
