Cry Of Fear - Steam - "Video Mode change failure"
« on: 10 May, 2013, 12:25:56 AM »
So yeah, everytime i start Cry Of Fear that message pops up:

"Video Mode change Failure"
"the specified video mode is not supported."
"the game will now run in software mode"

I click "ok".

Then it just restarts, and the same message pops up, this will repeat until i don't click ok.
And then it justs exit.

Any help?

I have Windows 8 and i have tried pretty much everything.

Reinstalling, restart computer, testing different resolutions, windowed mode.

Everything. I really want to play right now, so please help  :-\

You sure you installed the game correctly? Are you using the Stand alone version or the Mod version? Try updating the game through the launcher, that might fix your problem. Also try running the game with different Windows compatibility settings. Or maybe your antivirus deletes something important for the game to run properly :D Or it's just the game that hates Win8  :joebiden:

You should search the forum for troubleshoot topics. It might help ;)

That is god awful ancient, that was no upgrade to be honest. What was your previous video card?

Have you turned down every settings through the Launch App? (Launch Cry of Fear > Check "16-bit", and "Windowed Mode" and set Resolution to lowest)

Try running the game with the launch property '-gl'.
Check the offset 'is_donator' crash fix, it's the same.
You should've stopped when you lost the advantage.

Video drivers drive the video... Try newer or older video drivers...
