Failed to initialize display device!

Post by xcont » Sat Oct 07, 2017 4:44 pm

Hello. I can't start game. He said "Failed to initialize display device!"
Oh, yes, also I have read this forum.
Log-file said "Goodbye":

I have changed graphic mode in config.ini:

video-memory-usage=low
force-opengl=true
max-texture-size=2048
fullscreen=false
After that, it still said "Goodbye":

I have latest Intel graphic driver on my system. Also, I was on Intel-forum, and they can't help me: https://communities.intel.com/thread/118417

There was a similar issue here: viewtopic.php?t=51352
Solution was to uninstall, then reinstall the graphics drivers.

But I see from the linked intel forum post that you already did that.
Have you tried this driver? It should include OpenGL 4.4.

Can you post entire log file, please? It should contain exact OS version. I am interested in it so I can try to reproduce the problem. I don't have i3-6100 available, but I can try it with 6700K which should have HD Graphics 530 too.

EDIT:
I found this: https://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/topic ... e-support/
WGL_ARB_pixel_format has the entry point wglChoosePixelFormatARB missing!
WGL_ARB_pixel_format has the entry point wglGetPixelFormatAttribfvARB missing!
WGL_ARB_pixel_format has the entry point wglGetPixelFormatAttribivARB missing!
and it doesn't support WGL_EXT_pixel_format extension at all.

But I am more interested to find out why DirectX doesn't work

Based on the intel forum link: https://communities.intel.com/thread/118417 this sounds like a defect driver installation, or am I misunderstanding?
Impressively oblivious official intel support person btw...

Have you tried uninstalling all graphics drivers and then installing the one I mentioned in viewtopic.php?f=49&t=53218#p311294 ?

Try with both force-opengl enabled and disabled, and if any of the log files differ from what you already posted then please make a new post with the new log file.

Please also post your complete log file anyway, the first few lines tell us what version of Factorio you are running and what the arguments (if any) are.

So far I haven't been able for reproduce the issue on my computer nor figure out why it doesn't work for you.
We released 0.15.36, it contains more logs in area DirectX failing on your PC. Could you please change force-opengl back to false in config.ini and post log from the latest experimental version? (Switch to 0.15.x beta branch if you have the game on Steam)
