Since my childhood I played SCFA (10 years ago approx.), in the past of the years my 10 old hardware is no longer capable to run modern games with max graphics/frame rates, i reformatted my computer i found that there is FAF, so i tried to play it , but got DirectX 3d problem
I tried to fix it doing the next list but not successful:
Gameprefs didn't appear in the first time i create one using steam tutorial.
update, windows 10 , GeForce experience (i have gtx 970), java,
directx9 , Microsoft visual 2010(vcredist).
eliminating game archives and the problem is inside gamedata/mogodata.scd
supcom says DeviceD3D9.cpp(189) problem.
Then i create a account here, download FAF client, try the tutorials and the same
Tried playing with 1280x768 resolution
Tried use specific changes using NVidia control panel mange3dsettings program settings SCFA, all on and all of
verify integrity on steam, uninstall, reinstall, download again without antivirus or windows protection
Compatibility(Tried win 7, 8, xp servicepack)
That's all I think,
one monitor Spectre E20, camera, mouse, keyboard 1 hdd, computer x64basedpc gtx 970 nvidia
Games i play after the reformat. the bureau xcom, league of legends, terraria, and rimworld
i have DirectX 12 using dxdiag directdraw direct 3d agp texture all enable
i have 24gb ram 8 usable the others go to the gpu, no problem with heat (using MSI afterburner)
played SCFA before but like 8 years ago (windows 7), same computer only change the power supply, monitor and hdd,
if i left my DirectX3d problem run more time, go bugsplat, and the next file is created
pretty sure I'm doom but, if any chance to play SCFA with out using GeForce now (1 hour of gameplay is not enough)i will tried.
