Post [C2 KB] Graphics error - painting sprites
Graphics error - painting sprites "[DDERR_EXCEPTION]"
Issue: A customer explained that he had noticed some of his graphics becoming slightly distorted, it was related to painting sprites on the screen. After a few more seconds the software crashed with the error message "[DDERR_EXCEPTION] occured while creatures 2 tried to paint game sprites".
Analysis: This is a common error in most games (though many modern games do not use sprites) and it relates to the video card and the video drivers that the machine has access to.
Resolution: First ensure that the desktop resolution is 16 bit and that you have the correct drivers for your graphics card. This is good general advice for anyone that encounters a "[DDERR]" error.

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.
