"Failed to set a working mode for the rendering device".

Postby winterflaw » 22 Oct 2018, 22:50

Hi.

I uninstalled Steam, reinstalled, installed CoH and BM mod.

It all used to work fine.

Now I get this : "Failed to set a working mode for the rendering device".

The game fails to start.

Anyone run into this before?

Googling fines other people having this problem for a couple of years, but no answers.

This fixed it;

1) Run winecfg
2) Goto the libraries tab
3) add d3d11
4) edit it to disable it.

Taken from this thread;

https://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=25382

In other words, turning off DX11.

Why this was being used now and not before, I do not know.

Steam startup will take a bit longer, and also COH/BKM startup, but it all works.
