A friend recently purchased Resident Evil 5, he wanted to play it on his computer. Installed fine, but when he went to launch the game in DX 9 mode the cursor pops up on a black screen and it doesn't go any further?
He just got the latest driver, and he can't try DX 10 because his GPU is DX 9. He also looked and has 800 MB of shared VRAM.
What could the problem be? So far he has tried running in admin mode to no avail. And try to open it in lowest res possible.
If it were not compatible, wouldn't he get an error message and not the black screen? Specs?
No, that is the problem. His harware is barely enough to run win 7, and I'm not certain why hes running 64 bit with those specs. His PC probably just chugs along as it is.
RE5 is a realtively new game and will require a dedicated graphics card to run. If he wants to run any modern 3d games he needs to upgrade. Sorry.
