Hi all, upon starting the game i get an error message:

"Could not initialize graphics system. Make sure that your video card and driver are compatible with DirectDraw"

I had this error about a year ago and i cant remember how i got rid of it... Could it be my drivers?

Hi,

First open your game offline and set your screen resolution to 800x600 and exit your game. next, host/join any game room and set your settings as shown in the below image.


Cheers!

I have fixed the error, after some research i found that the newer gfx cards have trouble rendering the game at its resolution. I therefore went into the game lobby and forced it to render at 32bit to allow me to load up the lobby before entering the game.

Hope this helps if anyone has the same error:)
