My dad bought this game for me last year because I had played OMF2097 endlessly so long ago, but I didn't have a computer that met the minimum requirements.
Well I just bought a new laptop, i installed the game and i tried to run it but when I do I get an error message: Viewport Initialization Failed...... SetupDirect3DContext() failed.
Any help with this would help, i've waited years to play the next OMF2097

P.S. It was a real pain signing up for these forums as I have no idea who Justin something or another is, nor do I know if he is a super-genius.

Justin Oakley is one of the guys who maintains the forums, and he added that textual question thingy to make it difficult for spam bots to register.

Justin often refers to himself as a Super Genius, so the answer to that question would be yes... though if you wanted, you could've just gone to register again, and it would've given you another, more understandable, question (but it's too late to be telling you this).


Anyway, welcome to the forums. You'll probably get a response regarding your question in the morning.

Seems to me you have a video card problem there, either that or a directx problem. So make sure your directx is up to date; and post your laptop hardware so we have a better idea what you're trying to run omfbg on.

Your video card isn't completely directx compliant; meaning it has some issues with transformation and lighting. You can download a program that will help your computer simulate t&l. If you look up 3d analyze you should get the game running.
