I can't get MM8 to work from GOG

Postby StarGate05 » Jun 1 2019, 18:20

Hello everyone!

I recently bought MM8: Day of the Destroyer from GOG and yet I can't seem to get it to run. This is the error message I am receiving:

Direct Draw Error

DDERR_Unsupported in file

F:\MM8src\MM8\Code\Screen16.cpp at line number: 2542

If anyone could help me get it running that would be great.

Have you tried to install latest Grayface's patch? ( https://grayface.github.io/mm/#GrayFace-MM8-Patch )
"F:\MM8src\MM8\Code\Screen16.cpp at line number: 2542" - sounds like problem with switching True color to High color mode. Latest patch supports True color and have to fix the issue.
