Fatal directx error! Code:15
I have had this game forever and i can never launch it. it always says this.

Fatal DirectX error!
Code: 15
Result: 0x80070057: E_INVALIDARG

This game will now exit. Try starting the game with /failsafe if the problem persist.

Help me, please!

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
