Error "Failed to initialize graphics"

Post by FergoDog » Thu Jun 20, 2019 2:49 pm

I am trying to open a windoes steam game but when i do so it states that i need to install Directx 11, when I did so nothing happened. I also read somewhere that you have to install Directx 9 but when I did that it failed to finish. Anything I could do (I am new here)

The version of OpenGL on macOS doesn't support DirectX11, also DXVK can not be used on macOS as currently MoltenVK doesn't support all needed Vulkan extensions needed by DXVK.

So if you really want to run the game in question you need to use bootcamp and install Windows 10.
