Windows 7: Bioshock finally working

30 Apr 2010   #41

Windows 7 Pro

I've had this issue with a few games. It crys there is no directx. I install the cd dx and it works. Go figure. I got a free copy of bioshock on steam but it never really interested me. Glade to know this is the solution for the problem though.

Win7 Pro x64

Thanks for the reply, rvbfan. I finally found a site that had detailed descriptions of the plasmids and tonics and stuff and read up on the difference. Somebody even posted a graph on it.

I decided to Harvest, since after thinking about it that is what a sane person who had just crash landed at a lighthouse in the middle of the ocean and being the only survivor found an expansive underground city full of crazy people and oversized mining robots would do.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

I have similar problems a while back with no sound when played in Windows 7.

My system:

O/S : Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
CPU : Intel Core i5 760 2.7 Ghz
Mem : 4Gb 1600
Grafix : NVidia GeForce 9800 GTX+
Sound: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty Championship Series

I am using all the latest drivers and no sound until I came across the post by Prv8J0k3r (Thanks a heap). I downloaded and update the Rapture3D drivers and voila! All the sound came back without needing to set any compatibility mode or setting Bioshock to DirectX 9 .

Did Microsoft finally get IE11 working right

Bioshock and GEF
For some reason, my bioshock icon is blank in the GEF. I checked and it also is in the main directory for some reason. How can I go about changing this. I don't need it to appear in the main directory but really need it to show in GEF. I've tried adding "BoxArt" string to regedit and typing...
For some reason, I cant seem to hear any sound during game play of Bioshock, but the weird thing is, during cut scene movies, there is sound. Anyone experience this problem before?
Bioshock not working. DX11?
Bioshock refuses to launch. It's telling me that the d3dx9_33.dll file is missing. This is a file for DX9. Not sure if it also part of DX10. But I'm using DX11. Has anybody able to run Bioshock without the need for instsalling DX9 or DX10?
