  • Hi guys,

    I've finaly finished my game on CC, but when I launch the exported EXE, I get this error:

    <img src="http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/529776failed.png" border="0" />

    -Runtime error

    Construct encountered an error in the display engine. Please report this problem to the application developper.

    Failed to initialise Direct3D 9! (0x8876086a)

    Actually I get this error on a mounted virtual machine (in VirtualBox), the specs of the machine are :

    Windows XP SP3

    2GB RAM

    Video : 128 MB

    and the game uses 14 VRAM.

    But that's very strange... My game don't use any 3D effect of CC.

    The game is did only with 2D sprites... So why this error ?

    I don't want my game to use any effects related to Direct3D, how can I do this on CC ?

    'Cause actually it's a small and fast game, I don't want the user to install big 3D drivers to play to a simple 2D game.

    What's the solution ? <img src="smileys/smiley18.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    Thanks.

  • Its still a part of DirectX 9, which Construct needs.

    Check that you have the latest version installed, or run the updater located in the main folder.

    Dx9, not 10, or 11, blah, blah, blah.

    If that doesn't help update the graphics drivers.

  • That's done, I've installed the DX updater, the error come back, so after that I installed the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable - KB2467175 and the error come back again...

    No solution ?

  • DirectX generally doesn't work in a VM. It's a problem with the VM rather than Construct Classic. The VM doesn't have a real graphics card, so hardware-accelerated games don't work. You'll have to run it on a real machine (not in a VM).

    FYI it doesn't matter if DirectX content is 3D or 2D, it's rendered the same way with the same thing so that doesn't affect if it will work or not.

  • Ah...

    Ok, so the prob is with the VM...

    Ok, anyway, thanks for your help :)

    I'll test on real machines later.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads
  • Maybe try it with the free VMWare Player software, it's probably the best around in terms of DirectX hardware acceleration/emulation

  • Hey, thanks !

    Never heard about this soft
