Fatal Error DD3D30

Question

BeavKilla

I was receiving this error every time after pushing the play button. I then went online for information to fix this problem and come across a list of errors and their explanation. It said this error required a reboot, which was not the case after rebooting both my computer and social club multiple times and having no luck, even logging out of SC and skipping the login did not help. I then uninstalled the game and SC from my computer and reinstalled multiple times also no luck.

 

Fix:

I then started messing with desktop resolutions and found that a few gave me the same error. I went from 1280x1024 to 800x600 and the game finally loaded. I suggest anyone getting these same reboot errors to change your resolutions and see if one of them works. Hopefully this patch they are making will help.

 

Well I'm off to see if I get anymore errors GL and hope this has helped.

At first I was appalled by this fix, but decided to give it a try anyway, just to see if the game would start. I had to change my resolution all the way down from 1080p to 800X600 and then the game started fine for me. This is a good work-around because once you're in the game, then you can change the resolution back up to where you want it for gameplay. You just have to crank your resolution in windows down every time you start the game, and back up when you're done.

Yeah the resolution fix for the DD3D30 error was one that I tried several times. Unfortunately, even at 800x600 with Aero disabled, the game still would not start. So it's been 3 days since I bought it and I still can't play it . . . <_<

have the same problem, but it occur in my second unstallation in the new haed disk in the same cpu.

 

after trying all suggestion in this forum with no luck, i found solution, by lowering color quality from highest 32 to medium 16 bit, and the game work at any display resolution.

 

Still I have strange thing, the game is still working fine in my old hard disk wiith highest color quality.

 

i hope this help for people with no luck at all.

You should still try doing what the original poster did, change your resolution to 800x600.

I got the d3d error too and the resolution change worked but its quite annoying having to change the resolution of your screen whenever you wany to play the game especially since I have had this game for a month and only got this error today. Is there any other fix to this that somebody has found?

I do everything just like you but nothing helps, and i update my display driver trough device manager and that works for me without any resolution change. smile.gif
