    yeah says direct x is up to date...like its working now but seems to crash with nvidia settings changes, setting them to default and rebooting got it working....i wish i knew the cause to fix it long term as this is my favorite game

    I did some google searching and it seems to be a common problem. One case where someone couldn't run it full screen only windowed (with the exact exception you are seeing), then it worked miraculously later with no changes to anything. It seems to have something to do with the config of the engine/game itself in some cases. It seems like maybe they used an older version of the OGRE open source game engine. Probably just engine bugs that could be fixed with some arcane digging around.

    One thing you could try is just going into the nvidia control panel and pinning the game executable to either the integrated graphics or dedicated nvidia graphics. It doesn't look like a very intense game. I would bargain it would play pretty much the same on integrated or dedicated. At least you could use that to see if it's some driver incompatibility with the game engine.

    thanks alot...I tried setting auto select gpu in control panel as well as just switching to integrated...still randomly doesnt open..then I tried installing older drivers ...nothing..installed direct x 9c and the newest..nothing...googled the error with poolians on google and nothing showed up..its like maybe a program that is booting up later or antivirus is getting in the way but I made an exception with mcaffee. so yeah im puzzled..never have I had a random direct x error normally it is consistant and resolveable..

    yeah maybe it'd be helpful to others if you mentioned what Antivirus was causing this.
