Thread: Windows 8 CTD

  1. #1

    Angry Windows 8 CTD

    Im getting CTD'ed at the start of a campaign once the bar is just finished loading. I was looking into some of the ways to fix this issue already on the forums and have came up with nothing. But I was picking through the MTW file and I came across this error file:
    Errors for session started: Wed Aug 28 16:03:19 2013

    E:\Mtw_atvi\frontend_base.cpp(956) : DirectX call : DDERR_SURFACELOST
    E:\Mtw_atvi\frontend_base.cpp(956) : DirectX call : DDERR_SURFACELOST
    E:\Mtw_atvi\frontend_base.cpp(956) : DirectX call : DDERR_SURFACELOST

    E:\Mtw_atvi\frontend_base.cpp(956) : DirectX call : DDERR_SURFACELOST

    Not sure if this means anything? Just wondering to see if anyone else is having this issue and may of found a way to fix it.

    Not much knowledge about MTW on Win 8 at the moment. I would suggest the button fix at the very least, this fixes some rendering problems with the default previous/next buttons on the campaign map.

    It's not a Win 8 issue per se, but a matter of a video card "too modern" for MTW.
