Daggerfall unity is broken for me

Post by MrMango7 » Thu May 21, 2020 1:45 pm

I have already made a post but i don't think you understood what i meant sorry for any mis interpretations.

Bassically when i attempt to start daggerfall unity for the FIRST time without selecting my daggerfall folder (i cant reach that stage) so when i open it even with administrative POWER it just comes up with a black screen with no error just a black window, i have tried to troubleshoot it but it still did not work.
Please help i really want to mod

If you want help then provide more info like your operating system and system specifications etc. Interkarma already asked for those in your previous post viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3752.

So:

1. Operating system (Windows, Linux, OSX?)
2. System specifications (CPU, memory, etc)
3. Which Daggerfall installation (GOG, UESP or the version that Bethesda offers?)
4. Where you have installed Daggerfall
5. Where you have installed Daggerfall Unity

You mention having tried to troubleshoot it, what exactly did you try?

Oh, i didn't understand what he was asking must have slipped my mind

1. Operating system: Windows 10
2.System specifications: 64 bit, procesor intel (R) Celeron (R), CPU G540 and a 4 GB ram
3. Which Daggerfall installation: Daggerfall Setup
4. Where you have installed Daggerfall:Local Disk (C:) Games
5. Where you have installed Daggerfall Unity Local Disk (C:)

You mention having tried to troubleshoot it, what exactly did you try?: well it recommended i turn on windows 8 compatibility mode but that didn't work and non of the other questions it asked apply to me

How much RAM do you have and what kind of videocard / GPU? I have a feeling the videocard may turn out to be the problem.

If you look in the top post by Interkarma in the Help & Support section you will find instructions on where to find output_log.txt which may shed some more light on why DFU is failing to load too

It may be slightly too old indeed.
I'm not a specialist of Intel GPUs, but after some research the best GPU of that family, the HD 3000, only supports OpenGL 3.1 on Windows.
And the OpenGL Core driver in Unity supports OpenGL 3.2 to 4.5.
I'm not sure in the DirectX versions change anything to that, so I assume you're out of luck with that PC.
(That's also consistent with Daggerfall Unity system requirements aiming at 2012 onward hardware, and G540 having been announced in 2011).
When a measure becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure.
