Opening Menu Gibberish Bug There are 4 replies
Original Message posted by Hes Dead Jim on 09/04/2012 at 3:27:47PM
When I load the game the main menu is complete gibberish as you can see below. Running Windows 7 with intel Duo CPU 2.53GHz. 6 gigs of ram, 64 bit. Graphics card is ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670 with latest drivers.

And now I see the other thread about the same thing, sorry I really did check it's just hard to guess what people will call this bug.

Made sure my driver was fully up to date, and tried uninstalling and re-installing without success.

The correct solution is to update your drivers, but as you are reluctant to do that you can try switching the game to DirectX using the steps below.

Steam
1. Navigate to the 'Library' section of Steam
2. Right click 'Hack, Slash, Loot' and select 'Properties'
3. Select the 'Set Launch Options...' button
4. Enter 'd3d7' into the text field and then click 'OK'

Non Steam
1. Create a short cut for the game
2. Right click the shortcut and select 'Properties'
3. In the 'Target' field add ' d3d7' to the end of the exe path

You can also enter 'd3d9' if 'd3d7' doesn't help.

I'm getting the same problem using ATI hd card. I would really like to avoid changing the drivers as its caused problems with other games. Is there any update on this?

Thank you for the answer and for the time you are taking trying to fix this. Unfortunately I can't roll back my drivers as several of my games rely on the newer versions in order to not suck. Hopefully the some newer drive will re-fix it. Once again thank you for your work on this problem and I hope to be able to play your game soon.

Yes this is a driver issue. It seems it was in older drivers, and ATI fixed it, but now they seem to have reintroduced it into some of the latest drivers. If you are confident rolling back your drivers to one that didn't have the issue you can do that. I am trying to see if there is anything I can do to bypass the driver issue, but that may take me a while.
