My Cities XL 2011 and platnium does not work on my steam
Hi if anyone could help that would be awesome, I'm pretty sure a lot of people have had this problem but I can't play the cities XL game on my PC. I know I have enough RAM and I have a Geforce GTX 645. I get that DirectX error - No video mode supported by the game can be found. Surely my Geforce card should be enough. Please help! I really want to play this game.

Make sure you have installed DirectX[] and would you post a screen of the error so I can better understand? Also your system specs would help.

Thank you, I have directx installed and it's directx11 I'm running windows 8.1. I can't paste the snap shot on this comment but I can tell you the heading of the error is D"irectx Error" and the message is "no video mode supported by the game can be found". When I click play in steam it will load for 5 seconds then that message will appear, also heres a snapshot of my PC specs.

Did you buy the platinum for $30? I ant to buy it for $5 via their site but would rather have it on Steam.

install directx 9 runtime from Microsoft website. There are some features developped for directx9 but missing from directx 11.

Click play then when the loading screen is on, do not click ANYTHING until it loads.
