game crashes on startup (orgre related)
« on: 2015-12-07 02:54:19 »
Hi everyone,

Just bought the Book of Unwritten Tales (actually bought both games) and was very looking forward to playing it but it always crashes on startup.
I've been looking for answers online and in other threads but no luck there.

To my issue.

Screen becomes black and the following message appears:

""ORGRE EXCEPTION(3.:RenderingAPIException): Cannot create device! inD3D9Device at ...\...\RenderSystems\Direct3D9\src\Ogre3D9Device.cpp (line 707)"

I downloaded the game from GOG.

GPU: GeForce GTX 980
CPU: Intel Core i7-4790k 4.00 GHz
RAM: 16 GB
System: Windows 10
DirectX 11.2

I have a realtek card but I deactivated it. I tried the fix they recommend on the forums. I deleted the folder in My Documents. I have all the latest drivers. I uninstalled and downloaded it again. I also checked threads on steam and even the ogre forums, but it still wont run.

I'm running out of ideas and my patience is long gone.

Could you please help me?

Thanks a lot!
