ProjectX and Steam version of W:A?
« on: January 05, 2020, 07:25 AM »
Hello and Happy New Year,

I am a huge fan of ProjectX. Had it when I had my W:A as CD. Now I got it on Steam, but the versions are incompatible. I've read that ProjectX could run on Steam version too, according to a link - but I tried that method, and it doesn't work. Anyone knows if it is at all possible to play ProjectX on W:A Steam version?

Thanks in advance.

Downgrading your Steam version is the only way to get PX to work, unfortunately. Can you provide more details about why it didn't work?

If nothing happens when you try to load WA with ProjectX installed, you will see in pxlog.txt it says

"Failed to load PX3D library!
Error : The specified module could not be found
Can't load PX3D unit, terminating.."

The solution:  Install these DirectX 9 runtime files from Microsoft.  Also allow it to install NET framework if it asks.
