I also tried to do everything, online searches, wrappers, dxgl, etc., etc., but it was of no use. Is it possible to have some information and / or attempt about it? Is it possible to have the dxwrapper.ini file that is fine for the game? Thanks
Hey all,

i tried around with the Fix from eriedlinger but I always get the same Issues:

First missing the atiumdag.dll error about 3 Times.

But If I look in the folder mentioned by the Error there is the file atiumdag.dll.

And after that I get the typical 'Software 3D: Error' and 'Hardware 3D: Error' message.

I would be grateful for every help
Hi guys,
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:
http://dege.freeweb.hu/dgVoodoo2/dgVoodoo2.html

@maintopic:
May I suggest that this get's integrated into the main post:
https://www.gog.com/forum/the_settlers_series/settlers_iv_muffled_audio/post3

Basically, change 4 bytes in the S4_main.exe to improve sound quality for free.
If anyone else experiences blue panels over their minimap and some of the other UI elements using the Settlers IV WIndows 10 patch from Elisha Riedlinger the necessary steps to correct this are as follows:
-Open up dxwrapper.ini with notepad or editor of your choice
-Change the line "Dd7to9" under Compatibility to 1

This will also force the game to run software render but at least you can see the minimap.

Thank you!
I tried all other patches mentioned. Couldn't actually get a copy of DXDG to try either, the website is down it seems.
dgVoodoo is working perfectly for me (after playing with the settings a little)
This game is really a pain. Purchased it ages ago and today felt that nostalgia need to play it.....

Unfortunately it just does not start.. I tried all(or so I hope) fixes offered in this topic with no luck ;/

DAMN YOU GOG!

I just booted up Settler 4 and played a misson(lost of course) just fine on the latest version of Windows 64.
I'm not sure what could cause the issue for you. Describe the system you are using?

Hi, I try and download dgVoodoo2, and follow the instructions and yet there is no change. The game don't launch and give the same error.

Is there some specific settings to make it right?
