Well, I guess that must be the case (hell, I haven't tried the Direct64 plugin anyways so how should I know )

What other problems exist with the plugins that could create such an issue?

If they already were functioning to begin with and a wipe of windows 7 "seems" to have triggered the issue, what else could be going wrong? Drivers? Software updates? Certain pre-existing issues with PJ64 1.7's handling of plugins? I haven't a clue

Maybe you guys know something I don't, some extra info/posts/etc would be helpful as I am a newbie to using PJ64 1.7 (have used PJ64 1.6 quite a bit before but haven't experienced such problems using it either that could hint to what has happened here)

Direct64 should initialize for any Direct3D-compliant card alongside having DirectX 9 or later installed.

It's fairly possible the person only has DirectX 8 or outdated hardware.

That's the issue.

The OP states that he did have it originally working, but fails to say what plugins he was using at the time. If he was already using Direct64 beforehand, it most likely is a DirectX issue. If not, it could be a hardware issue. It also could be a Project 64 plugin handling issue as there are some in 1.7 (I think...? , I thought I read some other posts involving the plugin handling being a problem of sorts.)

One other issue is that the OP doesn't say he's using 1.7 anyways (or if it is legitimate) so there could be other issues at play besides what was said already.

It could be both DX and hardware as this guy doesn't seem to have a clue what he has or what is happening. I wouldn't bother with this thread anymore.

lol kind of contradiction to the self there

Maybe he just didn't know it was with certain plugins or something. I imagine hopefully by now he's figured out with the switching to a plug-in that supports his device setup got it to work again.
