    Hello All, I recently deleted and reinstalled NR2003 to fix some in-game problems. Upon doing this, however, when I would go into the graphics configurations page, only the OpenGL render would work. Before I uninstalled NR2003, my renderer was DirectX D 3D, which worked like a charm. Now, anytime I try to change the renderer from OpenGL to DirectX, it crashes. Is there a workaround to this. The game runs and looks better on DirectX. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    We need more info, cpu, vid card, ram and what not. Also did you get all the updates installer, there are two of them and with Windows 10 you need to have those installed before you run the sim.

    I’ll check all of that stuff when I get back from work. I know for sure I installed one update though...

    Josh, after you deleted everything did you clear all the registry entries for NR2K3? There is a distinct possibility you have some remnant bugging you. The best way to clear all registry problems is to run CCleaner (free) after deleting the Papyrus folder. Before you do that, you should save your core.ini file, No-CD Patchfile then save the effects, export_import (if you used it), layout, objs, players, Replay (if used), series, sound, and tracks folders.

    When you reinstall after running CCleaner:
    1. reinstall the game from the disk.
    2. install the two updates for NR2003.
    3. run the game and check to ensure it works.
    4. Copy your saved folders and files back to the Payprus folder overrighting any files requested.
    5. perform the video edits suggested in this video

    You should be able to run the game in D3D or OpenGL now.

    I have run NR2003 at 1920x1050x32 (My screen resolution), 1680x1050x32, and most other resolutions below those in DirectX 3D. His graphics card and processor should handle those higher resolutions if his monitor supports them.

    So I've reinstalled the game and by the looks of things, it looks like I'm missing the driver. Screenshot (131).png
