@spudsheram - thanks a ton, that fixed the game for me. @tastedspace008 - those posts are telling people to go into the settings folder, which did not even exist for me. I was getting the DirectX error message on my very first launch of the game.

Having exact same problem, I'm almost certain that i started getting this problem after updating to windows 8.1

 

I'm also using nvidia card with windows 8.1 64 bit.

Getting the same error here.

I am using ATI 7870, running the latest beta drivers (13.11 Beta).

 

this is my error message:

 

DirectX function "m_dxgiFactory->CreateSwapChain( m_device, &sd, &screen->swapChain.assignGet())" failed with DXGI_ERROR_INVALID_CALL ("The application provided invalid parameter data; this must be debugged and fixed before the application is released."). GPU: "AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series", Driver: 13.11 (13.25.18-131024a-164159E-ATI)

Hi guys,

 

I did some digging into this and have spotted a few others that are having this problem. In my research I did come across something that has helped one or two others. Could you please try the following:

 

Control panel -> Time, Language and Region -> Region -> Administrative tab

Change Language for non-Unicode programs To English(US)

 

After changing this, try to run the game again. If I'm right you should not get that DirectX error any further.

 

Let me know if this helps.

 

Thanks.

Many games need a newer set of drivers than Microsoft is including with Windows 8.1, and in fact both AMD and nVIDIA released special Beta copy drivers especially to remedy that failure.
