First thing I'd do is install the latest drivers.
What GPU are you using?

You need a new card.

I have the same error. I tried the illigal version first and it worked like a charm so I bought the game.

Now I get the directX error -> guys in the 'crack' scene have better control on fixing problems than the creators.

this was my problem as well. I tried every solution I could find but turns out my resolution was set to something besides native and doing this fixed it.

Also if you're having problems and are desperate you can just have someone else find the problem like I did. I used fiverr.com and just asked someone to find the issue. best 5 bucks ive ever spent.

I'm very confused if you compare his graphics card to the minimum it demolishes the GTS. Mine does as well, I have the GTX 260 and I compared the specs and it's 10x better than the GTS how do I not meet the minimum requirements?
MrDJ Dec 1, 2014 @ 2:08pm 
no neither do.
ive got a 260gtx on my other laptop and it cant play this game.
all 2** graphics cards are 4 years old and are directx10 cards. in 2010 they were the fastest cards you could get. now they are old.
this game need a minimum of gts450 which is a directx11 card
