So, finally got a second screen for increased productivity... and after being productive, I felt like a spot of GOG SWGB. Clicked the icon, watched the hilariously pixelly intro videos on my new monitor...

And then crash to desktop with a graphics error. HEP.

I was working on the TF campaign! I wanted to finally finish my actually chronological runthrough, and had finished the first three Gungan missions and the first two TF! Are my dreams forever lost?

Was it the DirectDraw error?

Yes. "Could not initialize graphics system. Make sure that your video card and driver are compatible with DirectDraw."

Restarting did no good. Am I doomed to never hear, "Mesa goin'!" or "OOM-9 online" again?

That's the error. A small black frame appears in the corner of the screen, then a popup that says "Star wars Galactic Battlegrounds: Expanding Fronts has stopped working"

If the second monitor is causing you problems, have you tried disconnecting it before starting GB? Certainly not an optimal solution, but it's all I have.

Could it have anything to do with your game's resolution?

Possibly, but I cannot load the game to change it.

Oh right.

I could have sworn there was a way to alter game settings like that outside the program.

One idea is that the game doesn't play nice with HDMI feeds. Is there some way I can force it to load to a monitor on a VGA cable?

I'm running the Steam version with two monitors and HDMI. I actually have three monitors, but one of them is on a VGA feeding off the integrated graphics and the two main ones (one of which I play GB on and the other I stream Netflix on) are on HDMI through the graphics card. I've never had a problem with the two monitor situation, but I'm not sure if the Steam version has been tweaked anymore than the GOG one.

It's a long road that has no turning - It's never too late to mend.
