Getting a "failed to initialize graphics" error

Post by thekillerbanana » Tue Jul 16, 2019 4:38 am

so im trying to run a game called clone drone in the danger zone, but whenever i try to open the .exe file, i get and error saying:

Failed to initialize player.

Failed to initialize graphics.
Make sure you have Directx 11 installed, have up to date drivers for your graphic card and have not disabled 3D acceleration in display settings.
InitializeEngineGraphics failed


and in all honesty i dont know how to do any of that stuff, so i really need some help here!!

Wine on macOS can only run DirectX 9 and below currently.
