What did the error say? If BeebEm can't initialise DirectX it will fall back to use the Windows GDI.

:lol:

d3d9 = Direct 3D 9, i.e. the 3D video drivers for DirectX 9.

You can go to Windows -> Run, and type dxdiag to get diagnostics on your DirectX drivers and hardware.

I often find myself with beebem set to DX with invalid DX settings, which seems to crash beebem on startup.
To fix it I change the config settings to GDI and then it is happy again - I don't know why this problem started about 2 years ago!

I think these issues started when the directx stuff was integrated in windows core.
Are you running 4.14 directly from the Mike's site? I think 4.15 with major upgrades is now just around the corner. It seems to be waiting for some minor bugfixes.

I'm currently running my own build and didn't experience any directx issues anymore.
But I'm also not running XP anymore so perhaps some regression testing could be done here.

Perhaps we can post a beta here?

I've never had this issue on XP, only win7
