Fatal Application Exit

Post by freddiefly » Wed Oct 23, 2019 10:21 am

Not always but on occasions I get the following error after clicking start game in the launcher menu:

ERROR
Failed to create device for rendering. Invalid resolution, or cannot run
without at least shader model 3.0
(0)

after clicking OK on that message box I get a further message box.

FieldOfGlory2:FIELDOFGLORY2.EXE - Fatal Application Exit

***unhandled Exception! ExpCode: 0x80000003 ExpFlags:
0 ExpAddress: 0x0051244D Please Report.


The game then does not run. My quick workaround here has been to log out of windows 10 and log back in and the game then runs fine.
Any Ideas on the cause of this ??

regards
Freddie

What kind of video card do you have? It sounds like the driver is either failing to create a device or a render surface. If it is an integrated card it may be that it cannot find space in RAM for the surface as it has to share RAM with the rest of the machine and it could become fragmented over time.

Check the OPTIONS.TXT file in Documents/My Games/FieldOfGlory2 and see that the REZX and REZY values are appropriate for your screen.

I have just seen this error myself. But it went away after I closed another game I had open and tried again.

not enough information to go on for me, as i like the full report to see more,

How to get a DirectX Diagnostic file:

1. click on "START"
2. click "run"
3. type in "dxdiag" and click "OK"
4. check through the tabs and perform all tests
5. click "Save all Information..." and save the text file to a location of your choice

We prefer that DxDiag files be posted as message attachments rather than pasted into the body of the post.

once the report has been made, just zip the file then attach it to your post as it's a Txt file which is then not permitted to attach to the forum, where as a zip file is.
