Can´t start worms - Error
« on: September 28, 2016, 10:55 PM »
Hi,

I get this error when starting worms: D3DxCreateContextEx failed: Error C8770BC3 (Unknown: n/a)

Worms was working till the last nvidia update, or windows update. Not sure which one caused it.

I have a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070.

Thx for any help!

What if you enable Direct3D9 via Tweaks\Renderer_Direct3D_9_Shader_Palette.reg ?
Dec 30 2013 23:59:44 <StepS> windowed mode isn't the only thing you need about frontend
Dec 30 2013 23:59:49 <StepS> you need it to be actually bigger
Dec 31 2013 00:00:13 <StepS> it actually is very small on my 15-inch full HD screen
Dec 31 2013 00:00:25 <StepS> while running at 640x480 or stretched mode makes it fuzzy
Dec 31 2013 00:00:44 <StepS> this problem has been around since the Worms Armageddon's release and no one has even tried to beat it

Hey Steps,

when I use "Renderer_Direct3D_9_Shader_Palette" or "Renderer_Direct3D_9_Software_Palette"  --> CreateDevice failed: Error 8876086C (D3DERR_INVALIDCALL: invalid call)

when I use "Renderer_DirectDraw_8bit or 32bit!" --> the screen gets black like it would start the game. When i click with mouse I get "Graphics initialisation error"


Edit:
made it work with your help here:

used the Extended frontend hack
The menu looks quite shitty now xD, but its ok, in match looks good.

Your new graphics driver no longer supports 640x480, so you can't run the game only with the default settings.
Also do not download wkSuperFrontend from that link, it's outdated. Instead, download the new SuperFrontendHD 0.4 that I released this week: https://www.tus-wa.com/forums/worms-armageddon/wksuperfrontendhd-0-4-released-(with-hd-graphics)-27448/
I will now remove the old version from the old server.

Hello WA-friends,

I just fixed the same bug (D3DxCreateContextEx failed: Error C8770BC3 (Unknown: n/a)) on this notebook and I'm very happy, so I had to share it:


(I got v3.7.2.1 Update before (https://worms2d.info/Updates_(Worms_Armageddon) (direct: WA_update-3.7.2.1_Installer.exe) and no Steam)

Good luck friends!
