cannot start entropia

Discussion in 'General Entropia Universe Discussion' started by Shearer, Jun 20, 2007.

  1. hey,,

    started entropia today and another small update took place, after it finished i tried to start but kept getting the message

    renderer creation error, directx renderer could not be created. Possible reason the vidoe card do not have enough available video memory. shut down other programs and try again.

    This has never happened before with entropia or anything else, i have shut down everything bar security and it still wont load, i have submitted support case.... in the meantime any ideas:confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:
  2. lots of screaming and 25 computer restarts AND it working :D

    Lots of screaming always helps make the computer work better. Also holding a jug of water over the keyboard and threatening to pour it usually makes my comp behave itself for a little while. :hehe:

    A weird error, I don't know what it was. Maybe have a look at the video card in case the fan or any connections are loose or dusty? Maybe it was overheating?
  4. was talking to guy in computer shop today and he said to change virtual memory as mine is always trying to do it itself, anyway changed it from 144 to max of 288, pc in the shop was something like 1440!!??

    also my graphics card is a geforce440, and he recomended a new one, think it was a 7600 ? £95 he wants and quoted £30 for another 512mb or ram (already have 512)

    may be due an update, either way probably be next month before i do it, my mate knows more about pc's than me so will take him along :D

    Cool. The graphics card and extra ram can make a big difference to gaming and general computing, so I hope all goes well and you are able to upgrade those.
  6. got (new) graphics card installed, free of charge from my mate :)

    its an x series v9520. not the latest or best BUT better than what i had and a much better price than the shop quoted :))

    Installed ok and updated , had a quick go on a couple of games and works fine, graphics are better and seems to run smoother, no juddering as yet when new things appear...

  8. Wow he was sharp on the sale.
    I picked up a last-year spec ATI card for about £30, and stuffed it in the box myself :)
