Default Crash on startup, fatal error: cannot set display mode.

Hey I recently bought ss3:bfe on steam but now every time I try to run it it just gives me this error message.

I've tried verifying the cache via steam but this doesn't solve anything.
Also made sure all my graphics drivers are up to date which they are.

Thanks in advance for any help.


system:
windows 7 64bit
intel 5 2500k
8.2g ram
directx11
AMD radeon 6970HD 2Gb

Default Re: Crash on startup, fatal error: cannot set display mode.

DirectX is not installed properly - D3DCompiler_43.dll cannot load. Please try installing DirectX again by manually running this program:

c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\serious sam 3\Redist\DirectX\DXSETUP.exe

If that doesn't help then manually find the D3DCompiler_43.dll in C:/Windows/System32 folder and delete it, the install DirtectX again to repair it.

Please let me know whether this helps....

Default Re: Crash on startup, fatal error: cannot set display mode.

Hey, I tried the first fix and it didn't work, I've deleted the .dll now but I'm unsure how to reinstall directx11 (I cant seem to find a download for it anywhere)

Default Re: Crash on startup, fatal error: cannot set display mode.

Just do the install from

c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\serious sam 3\Redist\DirectX\DXSETUP.exe

The only difference is that now that file is deleted it will be installed anew. It often helps if file is there, just damaged.

Default Re: Crash on startup, fatal error: cannot set display mode.

ok I tried running the dxsetup again and I still get the same error message when trying to start the game, also when I checked the system32 folder again I noticed that the d3dcompiler_43.dll is still missing.

Default Re: Crash on startup, fatal error: cannot set display mode.

Hm, please try this then:


Find where else d3dcompiler_43.dll exists (I guess probable location is in C:/Windows/WoW64/ ) delete that too and then run that installer again.

To be on the safe side re-run this full DirectX installer as well:

Default Re: Crash on startup, fatal error: cannot set display mode.

k, I've tried that last step and while the downloaded directx installer did replace the .dll files in system32 and wow64 I'm still getting the Fatal Error: Cannot set display mode.

Default Re: Crash on startup, fatal error: cannot set display mode.

latest log is different, it seems to be failing to load D3DX9_43.dll as oppose to the D3DCompiler_43.dll it was failing to load before

Default Re: Crash on startup, fatal error: cannot set display mode.

hey, I fixed the issue by taking the same steps with the other .dll (deleting them and reinstalling directx) and now SS3 seems to be working fine.

Thanks Alen for all the help.

Do you have latest graphics driver?
Latest DirectX installed?

DO you have DirectX 9 installed which is missing from Win10 by default and you can found it here? : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down...s.aspx?id=8109

It's also a good idea to go to the Serious Sam 3 DirectX redistributable directory (C:/Games/Steam/steamapps/common/Serious Sam 3/redist/DirectX in your case) and run DXSetup.exe as admin. Try to run the game after that.
