Failed to initialise Direct3D

Post by cwscribner » Sun Aug 14, 2011 1:06 pm

Hi all.

I installed and subsequently tried running The Art of Magic: Magic and Mayhem but received a "Failed to initialise Direct3D" error. Is there any way to remedy this? I've done some searching around but haven't really found anything conclusive on how to fix it or if there even is a fix. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just researched the Applications Database and it looks like this game
is rated Garbage. However, it does install.

There is one bug report for this game:
http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24856
However this has nothing to do with not being able to 'start' DirectX

Can you create a logging file and post it to a site like pastebin.com:
http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ for us please? Post only the URL to the pastie.

Thank you.

Hmmm....so it sounds like I won't be able to play this game.
