    Start > Run > Type in dxdiag.

    Click the display tab and enable Direct3D and DirectDraw. If they are enabled, you need to ajust the the hardware acceleration from the desktop properties.

    Config has nothing to do with it. All that does is changes graphics and some keys, crosshairs and sounds.

    DirectX usually fails to instalize because it isn't enabled.

    don't change your resolution on gunz to anything your graphics card cannot handle, or your monitor cannot, that's probably the only reason why that would pop up, Abundance is right.

    /fail

    It also fails to intialize if you are trying to run resolution which isnt supported. So hell yeah it affects if it's set wrong.

    Not necessarily fault on the config, but possibly.

    I should also add that his config is very unfamiliar with mine

    I've had the same problem, to solve this problem you just have to remake your config, because I entered a whole different (totally wrong) resolution, maybe you should check your resolution before you start gunz again, after you do this, the problem will be solved.

    i have had the exact same problem, you just have to update your graphic card drivers and it should work out
    if they are already updated as you said.. update them again

    Worked for me, hope it works out for ya as well
