Startup crash

Hi,

Every time I try to start the game it crashes with the below error:

Failed to initialize Direct3D.
Make sure you have at least DirectX 9.0c installed, have drivers for your
graphics card and have not disabled 3D acceleration
in display settings.
InitializeEngineGraphics failed

I get the error running the app normally, with the force directx9 option and with compatibility for windows 7 turned on and running as an administrator.

dxdiag for machine below. It wouldn't let me post the whole text and I can't find any option to attach files so I've stripped some of it out so it will fit Can anyone help?

Hi Ralphicus.

The error you see is from the Unity3D engine which Pulsar (and many other games) is made with, you can find more about it on the Unity website here.
https://unity3d.com/search?refinement=all&gq=Failed%20to%20initialize%20Direct3D

Basically this error occurs when the Unity engine cannot find a 3D graphics driver, this can happen when a driver has 3D disabled, or the PC is in a powersaving mode (especially on laptops with integrated graphics), or you've installed a driver but have not yet rebooted, or a Windows update has broken the driver.

The Unity log (output_log.txt) will usually show you what graphics card and driver it has detected, if it has check it matches your Titan X, if it doesn't match that can indicate the driver you have installed is incorrect.

Sometimes the log will say it has detected a Microsoft driver, that can indicate that Unity is using the basic VGA driver built into Windows which is useless for games.

But as your dxdiag shows an Nvidia driver it should be working, so check your Nvidia settings and in dxdiag to make sure 3D is enabled, make sure your power settings are on performance mode, and test some other 3D games, others may not be working as well.

If you've installed drivers and not rebooted try restarting the computer, that will let Windows load the driver properly.

Other things to look out for, Unity doesn't seem to like dual SLI graphics cards ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scalable_Link_Interface ) or multi-monitor setups, so if you're using either of these you could try disabling the second card/monitor in the Nvidia settings.

Also Steam often fails to install a game properly, so right click Pulsar and verify the cache in the Steam client (if this is the Steam version).

If it's still not working after that you may want to consider reinstalling the driver, the latest driver for the Titan X for Windows 10 64bit can be found here.
http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/113448/en-us

You can uninstall the existing driver via the Programs and Features screen in the control panel, you'll need admin rights and don't forget to reboot the PC after the new driver has installed, it should prompt you to do that anyway.

If it still fails to work after all that I'm out of ideas, maybe try googling for your card and other Unity games, see if others are reporting the problem, as it might be a bug between Unity and the Titan X driver, though unlikely.

Hope this helps.

I managed to finally fix it.

As a last act of desperation I deleted everything from D:\Steam\steamapps\common\PULSARLostColony folder but left the folder itself there. I then verified the files in steam it picked up all the missing files and re-downloaded them. Whats really weird is that I previously tried uninstalling an re-installing the game and that didn't fix it. I don't know if the un-install process leaves files behind that could have been the cause or something?

Deleting via the Steam client can leave files behind, particularly non game files (mods) or modified game files (custom settings etc), so opening the folder and deleting manually is the only sure way.

In your case I suspect an important file was badly copied from the Steam servers, resulting in bogus data.

Installing via Steam isn't reliable unfortunately, and many issues with another game I play (Kerbal Space Program) are caused by a bad Steam install, a few bytes missing here or there can cause anything from failure to start to missing parts to unexpected behaviour in the game, these issues only show for the one player and vanish after a Steam cache verification, and are a constant source of baffling bug reports, as unlike a regular bug they don't show on anyone else's computer or in code, so there's nothing to fix.

Steam doesn't do a verification unless forced, either via the Steam client option mentioned above or via the Validate command in SteamCMD https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/SteamCMD#Validate and reading the Steam forums shows many many threads where game issues that were first claimed to be a bug were resolved by a Steam cache verification.

So Steam can sometimes do more harm than good to a developer, who is stuck with bug reports for phantom issues, all caused by Valves software failing to install a game properly.
