I have installed the current version of Siedler / The Settlers 4 Gold Edition (offline version).
my computer is running win10 64bit version. Resolution: 1920x1080
an error message appears when starting the game:
"the settlers IV: S4_Main.exe - Einsprungpunkt nicht gefunden
Der Prozedureinsprungpunkt "MiniDumpWriteDump" wurde in der DLL "C: \ Windows \ System32 \ DriverStore \ FileRepository \ u346830.inf_amd64_35731e557194973d \ B345901 \ atiumdag.dll" nicht gefunden.
"the settlers IV: S4_Main.exe - entry point not found
The procedure entry point "MiniDumpWriteDump" was not found in the DLL "C: \ Windows \ System32 \ DriverStore \ FileRepository \ u346830.inf_amd64_35731e557194973d \ B345901 \ atiumdag.dll"
By using "DXGL-0.5.18-win32" the game started, but showed a black screen instead of the intro videos.
Does anyone know the problem and can help here? The GOG support is very busy at the moment and i don't know if or when i can get help from them
Try dgVoodoo 2 instead of DXGL. My experience with it has been a lot better:
Basically, change 4 bytes in the S4_main.exe to improve sound quality for free.
