Ok so i got this out of nowhere. I downloaded the 2.8 in announcements and for some reason it wouldnt let me open the server. Downloaded the library files and it started working but i couldnt use the client. I can get all the way to picking a character and when i sign on i get this error.
Error initializing DirectDraw! Make sure you have DirectX 7 or higher installed and a compatile graphics device. Err: 429, Desc: ActiveX component can’t create object
I downloaded the newest DirectX and it didnt do anything. I tried a few of the fixes on the forum and they also don’t work. I decided to go back to my old server that was working. Same problem and not sure how to get rid of it.
I’m using XP(NOT VISTA) and have tried while i host the server or a friend. any help would be appreciated.
