Simply can't run A3: Ruined World


Recommended Posts

Hey, my laptop (which I initially got A3: RW for, if anyone's confused as to how I'm only now having this problem) died and so I reverted back to my old desktop.  Problem is, it seems to be having trouble running Ruined World, which strikes me as weird because it runs EftP and CS just fine.  I verified my install on Steam, and I decided to use Steam to get my computer specs:

Is anything on here the issue?  Do I need to update DirectX drivers or something (as I said, this computer's fairly old, but I seriously think it should still be able to run this game)?  How do I do that if so?  Anyone have any other ideas on what the problem could be?  As I said, the game simply doesn't start for me right now.

Huh, definitely weird that it runs the first two games but not this one.


Major detail you left out: what does "having trouble running" it actually mean?  Will it open?  Does it crash?  Are the graphics or performance stuttery?  Do you get error messages?  Have you tried running it directly from File Explorer (so no Steam involvement or Steam overlay)?  etc., etc.
