I have the steam edition of DKS. Whenever I click on new game i get progress up to the opening cinematic (guy running up to the dragon). Then i get a weird noise and the game crashes. I get this error msg:
Now the game crashes shortly after the logo screen after working once. I have sent an email to support.
Some more information. When the game did work that one time, the graphics were jaggy and rather ugly despite being on high textures + screen space AA (it kind of looked like it was on software mode). I also detected a very noticeable delay between pressing space bar and jumping. Walking animation was also very stuttery even tho I had turned off that setting that updated animations less frequently.
Hi, I am pleased to say that i have solved the issue. The direct show filter solution didn't help me. However, I recalled that the game worked fine until i changed resolution (from 1024x768 to 1280x960) so I went to local settings/app data/divinity2 and manually changed the resolution in the graphic options xml. Thereafter the game worked. I suspect either a memory issue OR the game is liable to crashing when the resolution is not supported by the user's monitor (i saw a black bar at the right side of the screen during the loading screen). Anyway thanks for the extensive troubleshooting.
