You could try adding to your command line: -w 2560 -h 1440

As for removing the video error you could try changing the name of the

\Bin\driverConfig.lua file to driverConfigOld.lua

(I am going from memory, but I believe it is located there)

Hi all !


Many thanks for your posts, so far.

I try to set the commandline-parameters to 2560x1440, but it show as hardcoded old resolution 1600xXXX from the ingame settings on my screen (max resolution HW2 bring in from original). Maybe this is a following "problem" of wrong drivers, failed or missing installation of DriectX9 i cancel at installation.

If it is save for Windows10, i could try it again and install Direct9 to this modern system. But i fear to destroy Windows10 with such a step. I dont think Windows10 is intelligent enough to accept and work with modern DirectX (11 or 12 ??) and an new install of Driect9. All i learn about "Microshit" last 20 years let me think it will be the ruin and death of this system.

I try to post my log-file as zip with this post.


Greetings

I think it did not alow you to install dx9, once you have higher directx the system did not alow you to rollback into older version unles you reinstall windows.

Ah yes...I have this running on Windows 10, but am I unable to recall how I patched the Direct X difficulty (though I do recall doing so for another utility recently)...perhaps I could forward you a copy of my version that works correctly on Windows 10? I wonder if it would work for you as well...?

Hi !


Thanks for your post. I think without install Direct9 into Windows10 it will not work. Maybe if we know what Microshit modern DirectX is missing of the needed Direct9-components, we can add this components manually to Windows10.

For now, the risk to install a Microshit routine for DirectX9 complete into Windows10 is to high for me.

I get now a full screen with 2560x1440, but it is the max. resolution from ingame HW2 streched to my screen. Not a good result.

Achim

P.S.: A copy of anything will not help to cure the basic problem Windows kill DirectX components from the past in any modern version. Sad

Hi all !


Good news from my side. After search a lot about installing the missing DirectX 9 into Windows 10 i try it and install the Direct 9 files. I get an massive error from Windows 10 Evil or Very Mad if .NET-Framework is missing (2.5 and/or 3.0). I ignore this message after the automatic dl for this missing parts of .NET-Framework did not work and end with another error message from Microsoft Evil or Very Mad .

All in all, i check my system and the relevant dxd9 files are in the right place.

I do this on 2 different systems:
- Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
- Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

The warning for missing .NET-Framework versions i get only from Windows 10, not from Windows 7. Question

I try to start HW2-Complex (the old installations i do before install DirectX 9 on both systems. On both systems it running with the same old error message from HW2 i use an wrong graphiccard (no AGP-card found, interprete it as an "old" pci-card. On both systems i use an modern PCI-express card. Both are from Nvidia and each with modern Nvidia drivers (max. 3 months old).

I can start HW2-Complex on both systems and on both it running. On both systems i get the graphic-card warning from HW2. On both systems the resolution settings i do on the relevant shortcut are partly ignored. On both systems the resolution is max. 1600 x XXX(X) from the indide HW2 settings. Only the ingame-resolution is streched to the max. screen settings i use (both are native) by setting the command-line on the shortcuts. The effect on both screens are the same. The 3d-picture looking ok with the ratio, but the menues are streched and looking wrong. I think the same is for the 3d-graphic i see. It is streched too, but the ratio looking correct.

I try after this first testing series a new installation of HW2-Complex on the Windows 7 system. The same result. 2 Error messages from HW2 for not known grapic card.

At this point i stop my instaling orgy and try to load some older player-vs-PC saves. It looking o.k. now, i think i get the missing 3d-feautures correct on my screen.

I will stay with this problems. I did not see any solution to start HW2 and or HW"-Complex without the error messages and i did not hope for correct display the game-menue in correct ratio.


Sorry for this long text and my bad english.


Greetings

Achim

P.S.: For the future i hope we get a new and fully working Complex 10 without STEAM. But i fear, Complex 10 will based on the STEAM version of HW2-Remastered. Unlucky this is an absolute "no go" for me. I dont like STEAM and i will never install this spy-software on any of my systems.

Hi again !


Many thanks for the link. I save it for later use.

EDIT: Or i wait for Complex 10 first and check how other users get it running and see which "DRM-management-criminals" or "SPY-bandits" link in. For now i have payed for the original of HW and HW2 both the full price. This will be the second time i pay for the "nearby" same game i allready have another time a full price. The next problem will show up, if complex 10 is ready. I am not sure we get it free to play as we get the complete row of Complex we have before.

Hi all !


A short status report from my side.

I buy HW2RM from GOG. The version is allready patched and free of any DRM. For now i install it on 2 different systems. An old Windows7 and a brand new Windows10. Target is to have it running on both system for locale network play.

I also dl the Complex-Mod 10.2.

For now i try to adjust the basic install on both systems with the settings in the option-menue.

About the working command-line-functions i have a question before i try to install the Complx 10.2.

My installation is basicly in english (the only version GOG sell) including german-subtitles (this can activate/deactivate only ingame in option-menue). The shortcut have "out of the box" generated on my desktop the following line:

"C:\GAMES\Homeworld Remastered Deutsch\HWLauncher\Launcher.exe" -locale English

For now, i test it as is. My question for the Complex-Mod 10.2 is, will it running if i add only the needed entry for load the big-file ? Or is it recommended to delete the " -locale English" section ?

Further i need to know, which commandline functions will work with HW2RM and work with Complex 10.2 together. I get an old list of all sort of commands for HM2RM. It looking the same as i see before for the old HM2. Special intrest on my side is to know, did HW2RM use EAX or other sound-killers and if so, how i can deactivate such killer options with command line ?

Maybe i will report next days about all my experiments and how they work.

For now, i have a lot of work to test.
