    kernel32 error report, clarify/confirm


    Firstly thank you for a great game epic, now onto the nitty gritty. UT3 works perfectly on my brother's computer, however on my laptop it crashes during the splash screen with a purported kernel32.dll fault.

    Here is the launch.log:

    "Device does not support 1x32 FP render target format."

    this is what bothers me, more than anything I want to know what that means. I'm guessing that my vid card is not fully dx9.0c compliant (on account of it being an intel chipset...) however I want confirmation.

    I uploaded my dxdiag info to here (too long to post): [link]

    here is my system info:

    OS: Windows XP SP2
    CPU: Genuine Intel(R) CPU T2050 @ 1.60GHz (2 CPUs)
    Video: Mobile Intel(R) 945GM/GU Express Chipset Family
    Sound: SigmaTel Audio - onboard mobo

    any help or clarification would be appreciated, thank you.

    Welcome to the club...

    Refreshments in the back near the exit...witch is locked...

    So your here for a while...


      That's been reported with exactly the same message. Intel Integrated Videocard is not supported by the game, as it (hardware) does not support hardware Transform & Lightning, which is required by the game.
      Confirmation is here:


        yeah I figured as much, it's actually why I've been reluctant to install it on my laptop... till now

        alright thanks guys


          I hope this helps at least some of you...

          The moral of the story is this: if you can get your direct3D tests in dxdiag to work, you can probably run UT3.

          Please bear in mind that I am running an ATI x1650 pro... see my sig for other details;

          That being said, some of you nvidia folks may want to try this too...

          I tried dxdiag... when I tested direct3D all the tests failed... then I googled the error codes and someone said that their ATI catalylst driver 7.9 and above messing things up...and by going back to 7.8 it worked.

          So I uninstalled my catalyst drivers (I had previously tried 7.11 and 7.9...epic recommends 7.9...) ran driver cleaner, and went back to 7.8... Then I tried the dxdiag again and direct3d worked fine. Now the game starts and runs just fine!!

          Current UTEngine.ini settings:


          Curiously, even with Catalyst 7.9 Battlefield 2 ran just fine even though there was something wrong with my direct3D according to dxdiag...

          P.S. I also did some other stuff which I read about involving direct3D, like disabling terminal services... I wouldn't recommend doing that, it made my res settings go bugnuts for awhile... I don't know why... I must just have the most obscure hardware setup in the world...

          Anyway... I would like to know what caused this problem in the first place, but I am satisfied for now... at least since the game works...
