Post [C2 KB] DDERR_INVALIDPIXELFORMAT errors on start-up
Issue: Creatures 2 shows DDERR_INVALIDPIXELFORMAT errors on start-up.
Analysis: Customer experiences the following error when starting up Creatures 2:

The Error [DDERR_INVALIDPIXELFORMAT] has been detected when attempting to draw game sprites. Please check that your dekstop is in 16 bit video mode, Microsoft DirectX is correctly installed and that you have the latest driver software for your graphics card.
Extra Information: C:\Program Files\Creatures 2\Images\cut_.s16
Resolution: This error can sometimes be addressed by updating drivers and DirectX versions, however the most common source of this error is an incompatibilty with S3 chip-based video drivers, such as those commonly found on laptops.

You can check your video card by right clicking on your Desktop, selecting "Properties", and clicking on the "Settings" tab. Under "Display:" you will find: '[monitor] on [graphics card]'

Unfortunately there is no fix or work-around for this issue.

I don't think death is scary if anything it's an adventure. I often wonder what it would be like... Will God let me have one small request when I die?... or am I just stuck with what I get when I go? - Me in a moment of well...being me.
