Failed to create direct3d divice

  1. I know this has been all over the boards, but I cannot find a solution, I know there has to be one.

    I have installed Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 for my son on my gaming machine (quad core 3.0 w/ 4gb Ram. I am running DX11 with an ATI 4850 (Windows 7). I have installed all the latest drivers (so that is not the problem) I have tried to force dx9 at startup (didn’t work), I have tried editing the option.txt (didn’t seem to work). I am not the most tech savvy guy, but this problem should not be happening. I way exceed all the hardware requirements for this software. This problem has been reported on this software before; by others…they seem to be having trouble with an old video card or bad drivers. Atari doesn’t seem to be monitoring their help forum…..Any ideas?

    This game was designed for older operating systems before Windows 7 was released. Install the game patch and change the compatibility mode to Windows XP and see if it helps.
