Are you starting it from the auto created shortcut? You might need to start the game form the mech.exe file itself.glendalough said:I've installed SPWAW (with 8.30 patch) and while the main menu starts, the game itself won't launch. I always get a "DirectDraw initialization error #-2147467263". Help!
Actually everything seems to work but the mech.exe. That's what gives me the DirectDraw error when I try to launch it. So I've narrowed down the problem. Any techies who might have a solution?Double Deuce said:Are you starting it from the auto created shortcut? You might need to start the game form the mech.exe file itself.
I haven't played SPWAW in quite a while so I haven't seen this one before. In searching the Matrix Game forums this is the closest thread I could find on it but might not be much help;A new video card was just installed on my box and I'm having the same problem, i.e. "DirectDraw Initialization Error #-2147467263.
I sure hope someone can come up with a fix.
