GTA IV DD3D80 "FATAL ERROR" ??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Haven't played GTA IV in a few months (last time was May). Just tried to play yesterday and the game doesn't even start - it gets to the "2006-2008... blah blah" screen and then immediately crashes with a FATAL ERROR (DD3D80).

What on earth is going on? Nothing has changed in my PC since May (except newer GPU drivers).

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Help!

Here's an idea.

Try launching the game in windowed mode (just add "-windowed" at the end of the command line in properties).

Also - try changing your desktop resolution and/or refresh rate, then see if the game will run.

Hope that helps!

You're right; it was the resolution - funny thing is that it has always worked before (bezel-corrected so I don't know why it doesn't work now?).

Anyway, I can now have fun in GTA IV again! biggrin.gif
