Beta download is right on the PF page

What kind of window type are you using for the VM? Fullscreen? Windowed? Some kind of "coherence/unity" thing? (dunno if virtualbox offers that)

Interestingly enough, I played RF at a LAN party recently, one of us couldn't get PF to load besides 640x480 resolution and the second time it wouldn't work at all. We tried the beta version too.

Tried stretched, full screen, windowed, compatibility mode. All sorts.

Odd thing was, one of the other guys had the same GFX card and drivers and DX version and he had no problems.

Very odd. They were both running Win 8.1

Did they also get the enormous launch delay? It was something I ran into on 8.1. Didn't test much more. Can't use 8.1 because dwm vsyncs everything.

One thing to check is the "selected adapter" in the stock RF launcher. If it's set to the wrong card or the wrong output on that card you might get CreateDevice failed. The setting was overlooked and not included in the PF launcher.

Also it doesn't label anything so that's fun.

I installed Windows Vista on Virtual Machine, and still no go. Pure Faction didn't work. Tried to run in full screen mode didn't work. I always get this error: Get Device Caps failed. Please make sure you have Directx 8 installed correctly.

Any other suggestions?

I really want to play RF!

Try Crystal Faction... if there's not a download on this site we'll get one up but you can google it in the meantime. You won't have the pf autodownloader etc but cf's window mode stuff is much better than pf's, might work out for you.

Keep in mind you're playing in a VM, kind of have to expect to have trouble. The best solution is to make a small windows partition using bootcamp

Censored: . . . It illustrates how that position is commonly used to defend racist ideals [a guilt by association ad hominem regarding the meme author]. As a result, no matter the original intent, the impact is the same┬╣. I'm not arguing about this any further, but far right/fascist/racist ideals are not going to be allowed on our community [seems to be a strawman], nor will arguments [like mildly ridiculing the far left] that are commonly known to be used to defend those ideals as valid [since far right xenophobes hate Islam should atheist critiques of Islam be banned?]

Just lol at his lack of ethics to ban me for humbly thinking his arguments were not rational and for ┬╣pointing out the implications he made of infantilizing people in which he was not intellectually honest that it was a safe space.

For the record I did accept his rules but I thought they were kind of dishonest.
