a bad day

gta sa doesn't start with d3d9.dll

Recommended Posts

a bad day

so i installed gta sa using a cd, then tried installing enb series as well.

the enb series made my game not start, good thing i have a backup of gta sa.

i tried the files 1 by 1, and all made the game start, except for the d3d9.dll. whenever i put it in the game folder, gta sa doesn't launch, and when i remove the dll, it launches.

i have tried other solutions, like deleting gta_sa.set, deleting the user files folder, and reinstalling gta sa. none worked.

can somebody please help, so that i can now start making videos again?

If you're a Win10 user, newer ENB series could have some incompatibilities or issues with your OS, if I'm not wrong, ENB 0.076 works perfectly fine with GTA SA on Win10 like this one or this one. ENBs like MMGE 3 & SA Directx 2.0 although been made under the newer builds, both come with a fixer for Win10 users, it works in most of the times, especially when using the adapted launcher that comes with SA Directx 2.0. GTA SA Compact has also been reported as a fix for Win10 users, I can corroborate that telling you that I use Reshade, which also uses the same DLL you mentioned and thanks to that launcher my game works fine with it, plus a highly modded directory.

 

Marty McFly has said that there are many things that a Win10 user can try to make ENB work but at the end, every computer has different specs, so a specific fix could work in some cases and couldn't work in some others.

 

Boris Vorontsov has said that the newest and, unfortunately, last version of ENB for GTA SA works smoothly in Win10; all he did was install the Steam version, add a default preset of ENB, install the required extensions & play the game. Of course that's not the case with most of the users since practically nobody installs and an ENB for playing the stock game.

@a bad day is the mentioned cleo file present in your game directory? You need to have CLEO 4 properly installed in your game before installing ENB X.

well, that's clearly caused by a script that uses that specific file. I can't remember which are the scripts that comes with that ENB, would you mind posting them? or you could also remove them one by until the crash is gone.

Well, I got it working after launching it again.

I don't know how it launched, but the 2 error messages popped up again, but after closing those 2, the game launched.

 

Now, do you mind if I ask for your help again? It's about GTA 4 with CryENB.

It's been a while since the last time I modded my GTA IV but I think it's better if you post it in the correct section
