"Where can I find this - it is not in the device manager,

Hello,

a picture of the my device manager is above, only the RTX3080 is displayed.

I need some time to process all suggestions.

But at the moment I can only start the game once in 800x600 16bit and that with the RTX3080 or with the dgVoodoo patch.
I then do nothing and close Links2K3, after that the game can no longer be started.
It seems to me that Links2K3 is saving something, which leads to the error or crash.

When starting LinksLauncher.exe this error is displayed –

ERROR : FAILED (0x887700fa - DPERR_UNAVAILABLE) - InitializeConnection( Provider=MODEM Modem="" Phone number="" )

Dump win 11 and go back to 10 if possible. Or get a cheap older comp off ebay or something like that with win 7 or XP. I don't think a lot of people will ever be able to run Links on a win 11 or beyond piece of CRAP OS....................

Sage.............. :fear:
If there is one thing ................ummmmmmmm.......I can't remember.

With all due respect, I'm one that has successfully been running Links on W11 since November of last year If you have a dedicated Video card, It can be accomplished in a handful of easy steps.
No matter where you go, there you are.

I did not say Nobody can not run Links on win 11.
It just does not look like Titus is having the good fortune you are GoBucks.
I've been watching this thread from the beginning and NOTHING has been working for poor old Titus.

Sage....... :cheers1:

Titus is indeed struggling. It almost seems as though his dedicated nvidia card is not being recognized.
