XWING v. Tie Loading Problem
Posted on 1997-05-18
Hey I just bought this supposedly great game, and as usual it won't work. I have all the requirements, 6x166, 16 RAM, Trident SuperVGA Card, etc..., but the game won't acknowledge my video display card and I have no number on the box to call. When I click on the play game button, it gives me a "Directdraw Init Failed at 2." Of course no directions to tell me what that means or how to change it. Any geniuses out there with a suggestion? Much obliged, fellow gamers. Otherwise I just wasted another $50.00.
Ok I have updated the driver and now the system recognizes the display driver, but does not list it as certified--of course. I have downloaded the applicable Trident driver for DirectX, but Windows 95 refuses to load it as it does not end in inf. (I have unzipped file for driver). Then to make matters worse, Windows 95 has now decided I have no joystick, so I can't even get to the point of determining that the game doesn't work. So what else is new.
