Project64 Plugins
 
Good morning (or good night),

Recently bought a computer with win7.
I had some .n64 ROMs, and I thought, I'll emulate them with some program, but to my surprise ... The computer was not supported...
Reasons?

Without DIRECTX.
--------------------------------
- Failed to initialize DirectX -
- Error code 8876086A. -
- -
- D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE -
---------------------------------
I thought about re-installing Directx but my card was not supported.

Not giving up, I tried the opengl plugins (TR64 OpenGL v0.8.8).
It worked ... But slooooooooooooooooooooooooow.

I didn't find any other plugins for the emulator, and instead searched this forum waiting for someone to turn on the light.
Professional help would be appreciated.


Why not buy a new video card?

We are in the 21st century. If I had to buy something just because a program depends on... Every day I'd buy something new. I have a lot of programs that depend on some device and money is not grass.
For more that a program be wonderful, it's cheaper to delete it than to buy a new device. (As long as the program is no more expensive than the device.:eek:)

Video card= Standard VGA Graphics Adapter 256MB
RAM= 2 GB

Translating ... Terrible.
But I've seen worse things that can run Project64 perfectly.

I'd say you need to update your DX runtimes, but I don't remember the link anymore. This is the best I can find:

I researched a little more in Google.
According to the results:

"Standard VGA Graphics Adapter"
"When a computer has no video card compatible drivers this driver is installed."

"For Directx to function properly, the video card manufacturer driver is required."

It's all right.
I installed the drivers through Windows Update.
The computer restarts. And blue screen. (Or death screen)

I restarted from safe mode and uninstalled the driver, which just happens to be the ideal driver for my video card, and now I have the computer running.

"Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" is a driver that makes it impossible to use DirectX, no matter how many times I reinstall it, the driver will always reject it.

Is there a plugin that doesn't use DirectX? :confused:

OpenGL which you said you have already tried, my guess is you have some kind of hardware (not really fixable) issue or software (probably want to do a clean install of windows) issue.

Hello again,

I called a computer technician (I spent money, which I didn't want).
The technician just updated my Windows to 10... Nothing more.
Directx now works, because the driver is accepted.

That was a %@$@$#.
I could do it for free if I had a brain and already had the "Windows Media Creation Tool" to update.

Result = Financial loss
Don't blame yourself, it was my fault. Sorry if I made you look guilty.

Thanks for the help.
See you.

Glad you got it to work, it sucks that you had to spends some money, but hopefully you learned something that will help you in the future :)
