Okay so I'm bored and decided to make this thread to help those who are having trouble running or starting the game, or just having technical troubles in general with the game. I'll post here common problems and solutions that might come up for some people.
1. Graphic Errors
Make sure your drivers are up to date.
You can download video card drivers from these two websites, depending on what video card you have.
NVidia Drivers: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
AMD Brand Drivers: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx
If you don't know what video card you have, do the following:
Open START MENU
In the SEARCH BAR type in dxdiag and press enter.
If it asks to press yes/no just press yes. You will get a screen with tabs at the top with names such as "System, Display, Sound, etc." Press on the display tab.
Here you can see what video card you have, and the version and date the version was released.
If you can't find the correct drivers that correspond with your video card, post your video card here and I will get you a direct link to the driver you should get.
2. Game Not Starting
If you're having problems starting the game, follow these steps before you try and start it.
Make sure you're starting the game in Administrator Mode. You can do this by simply right clicking on the icon on your desktop and clicking "Run as Admin." Alternatively, you can right click it, go to the PROPERTIES > COMPATIBILITY and press "Run as Admin by default" near the bottom, this'll save you the hassle of having to right click it every time you want to start the game.
A lot of people have problems because they dont have Microsoft .NET Framework, which this game apparently needs in order to run. You can get the latest version for free here:
If you're still having problems, then post here and hopefully someone can help you out!
3. CD Keys
If you're having issues with your CD Key, read this thread
and hopefully one of these solutions should be a fix.
3. Mouse/Cursor Problems
If you're having problems with your mouse cursor, such as it freezing whenever you move your mouse or just mouse lag in general, try to lower your font size/resolution. This seems to work for some people, DoF supports up to 1920x1080 resolution at most, so anything above that will cause problems.
Also, just a reminder. The BUG REPORT forums are here:
They are a sub-forum in the Technical Support forums, so if you encounter any bugs that is where you should post them up, not here
If anyone is having ANY issues with installing or starting the game, or has encounter an issue and has since solved them, please post them up here so we can help out other new players that want to join this community get started!
