This game doesn't work on Windows XP. You need Vista or Windows 7.

Actually, code 15 means you dont have enough ram / graphics card
I just got this game and am having the same problem. I can answer all of you, I talked to Eidos and they said the game will not work at all if you have an Intel HD graphics card, let me guess... all of us have an Intel HD graphics card?

I have fixed it, and I had intel HD graphics, but now I got a GTX 650 TI so im good. Thanks anyway for diagnosing it. @The True Gamer

Guys if you are having this problem (like me)that means that your video card is not good enought so it can run this game.I changed mine and got a GTX 770 and it works perfect.Please try it and if you are having again problems like fatal error 3 right click on the icon of steam select properties launching options and type /dxadapter=0 Hope i was usefull
did you install direct x ?

you need to put the app on desktopo that is what i did for error code 53

This Work, traslate it on google, but basicaly, what you have to do is download the file and install it, the setup is just light, but then you'll have to download some file that is 1.2 GB, then just run it as this way:


-Press "windows" + "R" then write: DXCPL;
-Press on the button: "Edit List..."
-Press on the "..." button
-Locate the .exe of your game
-Press ok
-Then in the 1st window was opened go to the bottom and set 11_1, or 11_0, or 10_1 or 10_0
on the "Feature level Limit"
-Press Apply and then Ok
-To prevent any other trouble just Start Steam as Admin and It's supposed that the game will work ;)

Hope this help!

Bueno si les sale este error se debe a la tarjeta gráfica ya que no tiene Directc 10.1.
El jeugo lo podrán jugar para aquellos que almenos tenga una nvidia GTS ya que con otras no les correra aunque hagan ESTO (POSIBLIMENTE intentelo comoquiera xD).

Bueno deben descargarse este archivo:
Lo que hace es agregar settings de 3D al directx, practicamente es lo unico que agregan en las nuevas versiones de directx.
Bueno despues cuando ya lo hayan descargado lo instalan normalmente (descomprimido pesa 1.2gb, el setup no pesa nada. y ahi dice que es para win8 pero tambien sirve en el 7) despues presionan la tecla de Windows + R (ejecutar) o simplemente buscan en ejecutar en la version de win8. Escriben dxcpl, le dan a permisos de administrador que sí, luego se les abrira la ventana de DXCPL 3D settings y le dan a Edit List y le dan al los tres puntos suspensivos ( ... ) y buscan el acceso directo de Just Cause 2 desde sus raízes creo que es /SquareEnix/Just Cause 2/Just Cuase 2.exe CREO despues le dan a Add List o supongo que se les añadira en el momento que buscaron el acceso directo.

Para Finalizar le dan abajito dice directx 3D o algo asi dice NONE ustedes escojen una version del Directx de 10.1 a 11.1 la que quieran y ya es todo se les abrira el Just cause 2 y ese molesto error code 15 ya no aparecera más. :D

Una cosa más, Quizá al iniciarlo ahora te mande un mensaje de que necesita permisos o algo, sólo sal, e inicia Steam con permisos de Administrador
