Tomb Raider: Failed to Initialize Direct3D with current settings (Solved)

tomb-raider

This is an appalling over-site by Crystal Dynamics. The only way to fix this is by changing a value in your computers system registry. No, there’s no .ini or .config file the only solution as I say is a manual hack – flipping outrageous as far as I’m concerned I mean can you imaging Nintendo doing this? No me either.

failed-to-initialize-direct3d

You need to go to Start > Run and then in the Run box type: regedit.

This will bring up your Windows system registry. You need to locate the folder:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Crystal Dynamics\Tomb Raider\Graphics

And then look for the value: ExclusiveFullScreen this probably currently has a value of 1. This need to be changed to 0. There is no need to ‘save’ this file as you are directly editing the system registry which is generally a very bad idea unless you know exactly what you’re doing.

regedit-solution

You’re now good to go.

When you now select options (which will now actually work) you can see the offending tick-box un-ticked.

Tomb Raider is a great game, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Filling out HMRC’s CT600 form.

I’ve been trying to fill out my CT600 for several days now. I’ve had to wait for a week for stupid login details to come through the post. Then I have had to wait another 48 hours before I can access the CT600.pdf form. Then I need to ‘trust’ their certificate and it just doesn’t work.

I go to trust the certificate but all the options are ‘greyed out’ like so:

2015-04-03_02-21-40

I’ve followed the instructions on this site: http://www.accountingweb.co.uk/anyanswers/question/ct600-adobe which simply don’t work, so I try to continue and then get this error:

2015-04-03_02-26-16

Nothing, nothing sodding works. I’m stressed up to the eyeballs, the threats of fines, the hours spent in utter frustration. I call HMRC on the phone and I get the recorded message (paraphrasing) “We’re all too busy to answer your call…” And then I get disconnected. I cannot even begin to tell you how frustrated I am.

Solution Attempt:

Following these steps here actually DOES work :)

Google blocked a less secure app from accessing your account.

For goodness sake it gets irritating. Having the message “Google blocked a less secure app from accessing your account.” would seem like a security warning that needs immediate paying attention to do?

Having a message saying that IP address xx.xx.xx.xx tried to sign in to your Google account really doesn’t help at all.

Having a list saying:

Windows or,

Machine name, and then

Unknown.

How the blazes does that help in any way at all? Google – PLEASE THINK. I need the MAC (Machine access code). You see that way I can know exactly device is trying to log in. I have over a dozen devices at home connected to the Internet – at least! You see that way I can start the diagnostic process, but no. Google in this case are as bad as Microsoft’s error reporting: “Something, somewhere did something and now it isn’t working – We’re not sure what isn’t or how it happened, but we thought we’d just let you know with one of the World’s most irritating error messages.”

Looking through Google’s help topics is like being forced to read the whole of Tolstoy’s War and Peace and then finding nothing and attempting to actually contact a human being at Google is like trying to find a swimming pool in the Atacama Desert.

Thanks for nothing.

PS Vita stuck on Set the date and time.

Q. I hold the power button for 5 seconds or so until the PlayStation logo appears, then up comes the Photo sensitivity message then after that is the ‘Set the date and time.’ However no matter what buttons I press nothing happens. Any idea what’s going on?

A. You’ll kick yourself when you realise what the problem is. The PlayStation Vita is touch screen. Put your fingers on the screen and move them up or down to set the correct date.
