Re: Earthsiege 2 Error on startup under Windows 8.1

I think I'll just run it in a VM. Sounds like less of a pain in the ass then letting SQL Server run on a desktop.

Re: Earthsiege 2 Error on startup under Windows 8.1

It's there. No physical CD-ROM because I forgot this mobo doesn't have IDE ports when I was grabbing parts off my old one. Definitely not a netbook or using on board graphics, that processor alone draws more power than a typical netbook.

Re: Earthsiege 2 Error on startup under Windows 8.1

Yes. Without the music because the mp3 ripper crashed (not hung, windows asked me to kill it pretty much immediately). The error message looks like dx11.2 must have broken the ancient ddraw calls it uses.

Earthsiege 2 Error on startup under Windows 8.1

Every time I try to start the game I get a white screen with an error popup that says:

Assert::err: Line 842 in "src\winstuff.cpp": coulnd't [sic] create dd surface.

And have to kill the game processes.
