    I've just got RBR and d/l RallyeSim, and I love it. But I'm having trouble setting my screen rez. I've had a quick search of the forums, and found info on the FixUp.ini/dll, and I think thats now set up correctly. But every time I try to start RBR I get an error message telling me that a compatible D3D device cannot be found. If I run at 1280x1024 it runs fine.

    I'm running Win7 Pro with admin rights with an ATI 6770 gfx card.

    Here's the info from fixup.ini and rbr.ini

    Fixup.ini:
    [Settings]
    fullscreenWindow=1
    fixAspectRatio=1
    fixVSync=1
    vSyncActive=1

    RBR.ini:
    [Settings]
    Depth = 32
    ForceFeedback = true
    Fullscreen = false
    MinDepthBits = 24
    MinStencilBits = 8
    ParticleQuality = high
    RenderCarShadow = true
    RenderQuality = high
    RunIntro = false
    RunStartup = false
    Sound = true
    UseCubicEnvironmentMaps = true
    UseEAX = true
    UseSoftwareAudio = false
    UseTripleScreenBuffers = true
    WaitRetrace = true
    XRes =1650
    YRes =1080

    I'm doing something wrong, what is it?

    EDIT: DOH! Just noticed the title :rolleyes:
     
  2. I use ATI 5970. here are my settings if it helps.

    RichardBurnsRally configuration settings (ini.)

    Depth = 32
    ForceFeedback = true
    Fullscreen = true
    MinDepthBits = 24
    MinStencilBits = 8
    ParticleQuality = high
    RenderQuality = high
    RunIntro = false
    RunStartup = false
    Sound = true
    UseCubicEnvironmentMaps = true
    UseEAX = false
    UseSoftwareAudio = false
    UseTripleScreenBuffers = true
    WaitRetrace = true
    XRes = 1920
    YRes =1200

    just type in what resolution you want. so if you have a 1920 x 1080 monitor then just type in 1080 where i have 1200 and save file

    also I am using up to date ATI display driver 11.8

    Tim, you have a typo in your Resolution Settings - See my correct numbers in blue . That is the problem. :tongue:

    Also, here are my FixUp.ini Settings:

    [Settings]
    fullscreenWindow=0
    fixAspectRatio=1
    fixVSync=0
    vSyncActive=0

    I don't use VSynch and usually use Windowed Mode.
