Hi all -- first let me say I know there are quite a few threads out there about this topic. I've tried basically everything to get this to work and it doesn't.
I have the same issue most folks have when starting the game -- it spins for about 5 seconds, gives the DirectX error, and then doesn't work. I tried the resolution change, I've now uninstalled/reinstalled SIX times, I've tried running in compatibility mode, I changed the startup options, I changed my screen resolution, I deleted the CFG files, I've tried nearly every solution people have provided for this. Nothing is working.
I would gladly appreciate some help -- I'm under the assumption there is something specific with my computer causing this not to load, but everything else works and has worked without issue.
