BVE 2 Trouble

Recommended Posts

Good Morning All,

 

When I first received my laptop back in June, I tried downloading BVE. However, when I try to use the game, this is the message I receive:

I haven't used BVE since May, and Id like to get back into the swing of things...

 

Any step by step help would be appreciated..

It does. Proof:

I do not have UAC (User Account Control) on either. However, I don't remember the other settings that I switched to make it work.

mmm that's interesting. I still prefer OpenBVE. It has better options than BVE.

Browse to the directory that has the routes installed to. You can then select the route you want.

To Zach, there is a way that you can make it work in Vista, however it involves messing with settings, you're better off with openBVE or just wait for for BVE 5.

It works fine.

Get OpenBVE. Quickest and fastest way to get your BVE train sim on.

No, but it already has individual route and train selection as a feature built in. no need for BVE route randomizer.

I never had the randomizer, so I don't know how it even operates. I was just thinking if it came with it, Id try it out. But okay, thanks man...

BVE2 works fine on Vista once you patch it up. The reason it doesn't init Direct3D relates to a problem with the GFX card. I had this issue on my cousin's lappie as well.

 

Try reinstalling drivers, etc.

At the time it happened for me, I reinstalled XP to the laptop and it worked fine since.

Too much of a hassle. Better off just running OpenBVE.
