Whenever I wish to start the game on my main desktop PC it crashes with the Error: Unable to initialise desired video mode ( error : 0x88760827).

On my desktop I have Windows 7 SP1 64 bit - AMD HD Radeon 6900 Series on Intel Core i5 2500K.

The game works on my HP laptop with the same OS and on-board AMD Radeon HD 6770M.

I cannot find solution anywhere for this error.

Maybe my desktop AMD graphics drivers do not support it any more?

This error indicates it's having problems switching to the resolution. Try editing settings\user.cfg in the installation folder and setting your resolution manually there; you should also set bpp to 32 (for 32-bit color) since 16-bit resolutions might also be part of the problem.

Arkose, thank you for your post. Editing settings\user.cfg solved my problem. However setting resolutions and 16bit to 32bit was not enough, even in cases where I changed my desktop resolution to 16 bit or lowered it, the same error showed again.

The game finally started working when I set fullscreen to 0 to run the game in windowed mode. Now I can play the game up to resolution 1776x1000 without problem in windowed mode, but fullscreen does not work on my desktop PC (although game works in fullscreen on my laptop).

I marked your post as solution. Thank you.
