GTA IV FATAL ERROR: DD3D50

Question

rooxon

I installed the game and everything... registered everywhere... and even if I'm not logged in nowhere, if I turn my connection off, IT WON'T RUN!!!

 

oh and one more thing.. I THINK I have sp3, but I didn't install it. It was as a update at the Windows Update, and even in the system folder something it says that it's Service Pack 3 Installed...

 

 

any help , PLEASE? smile.gif

 

 

regards, Rooxon^^

After reading up on DD3D50 i have found out that you have to install Direct X 9. so i installed it and i still get the fatal error DD3D50.

Can someone give me a link to help me out or help me find out if their is something im doing wrong. or something. i bought the game at 1:00 in the afternoon and i havent yet to play it. it just seems every time i try something new it has something to say about it.

rockstar realy messed up on this release.

Ive been looking at the specs closer and I don't have shader 3 on my gfx card, so looks like if I want to keep playing new games I definitely need a new pc

 

Been over 4 yrs since I built this one, kicked ass at the time but now its a bit of an old dog,

you definitely cant teach it new tricks, lol

 

Its done me well mind, not had one single hardware problem with it in all that time,

But shader 3.0 was another error code DD3D60 but this error wasn't about it. Nobody has a solution to this?

ongjie222, cheers for that,

looks like its the dual core thing thats causing my problem

 

I just feel for those ppl who cant afford to upgrade,

a game on low settings is better than nothing,

 

Unfortunately game reviewers put so much emphasis on graphics that the better they are the better the game does even when the game is sh*t,

 

I still prefer pc gaming though, even if it is expensive,

DD3D50 - D3D Error - DirectX 9 video card required

dd3d60 is the shader model 3.0

 

its coz like he said you don't have shader model 3 supported graphics card....

 

*but i do not think any none directx 9.0 card that has the 3.0 shader anyway?

no way of upgrading them, you have to buy a hole new one....

 

 

maybe you should get a refund using the im pulling my hair out try to get this game working but its got so many bugs yada yada, and if they ask you your computer specs just make one up... make sure you say ati card like... and say its crashing every 5 mins and getting out of video memory...

can i play GTAIV with ATI Radeon X1200 Series:

 

Total Available Graphics Memory 895MB

 

Dedicated Video Memory 256MB

 

System Video Memory 0MB

 

Shared System Memory 639MB

 

because i also get the error DD3D50 and i have a dual-core processor, and 1,75GB RAM, and other things it needs

no it will not play GTAIV, as it only supports shader model 2.0, and don't even want to look at its specs...

 

if your still wondering

Hello, cool.gif

 

I got a win xp sp3 with a AGP card and I know a solution to this problem

 

after seeing your boring communication yawn.gif I felt I'll help teach you something anuj_cop.gif dont go panic.gif

 

DD3D50: first install dx 9.0 or higher then check if your gfx card or agp is not older than 2005 YOUR GFX CARD SHOULD BE FROM ATI OR NVIDIA/AGP CARD OF INTEL ONLY.

 

if it works colgate.gif

and if it does not notify.gif for other error's meet karnthebetrayer

So I've just found a solution to this error that worked for me.

 

You know when sometimes play games and when you run it the resolution changes? Well I had an idea to change my screen's resolution and hey it works!

 

I usually run my system at: 1920 x 1080 but that must be incapable for GTA and changed it to: 1280 x 1024

 

And it WORKS cool.gificon14.gif
