Searched on "renderer creation failed" in the Camelot database on the Herald:

I get a "Renderer Creation Failed" error when playing DAoC in Windows XP. How can I fix this?



The first thing to check is to see if your current video card is on the supported list for Dark Age of Camelot, Shrouded Isles and Trials of Atlantis. You may view this list by typing in the keyword "video" and clicking on the link "What video cards are currently supported and not supported for Shrouded Isles or Trials of Atlantis?" If you see your video card under the "not supported" section, the following solutions may not work for you.

If you are using an NVIDIA based video card, this error can be fixed by upgrading to the official NVIDIA driver version 66.93 for XP/2K and 61.76 for 98/ME, which can be found at http://www.nvidia.com

Also, when you have completed updating your video card drivers, it is advised that you re-install DirectX version 9.0c. This can be found by visiting: http://www.microsoft.com/directx.

If none of the above proposed solutions work, or if you do not have an NVIDIA based video card, you may also attempt the following:

If you are playing the Dark Age of Camelot Shrouded Isles client please delete the user.dat file located in the /mythic/Isles folder. If you are playing the Dark Age of Camelot Trials of Atlantis client please delete the user.dat file located in the /mythic/Atlantis folder. This will restore the default in-game resolution setting to 800x600.

Next, log into the game through the Server Selection and Character Selection screens, bypassing Quick Entry (have Quick Entry set to 'No Thank You' on the first login screen). At the character selection screen select the in-game resolution that you would like to play at. Do not select in-game resolution you were using while receiving the 'Renderer Creation Failed' error message.

If you wish to experiment with different in-game resolutions, feel free to do so. Simply use the above instructions to reset the default in-game resolution if you begin to receive the 'Renderer Creation Failed' message again. For nVidia cards, you may also try the 43.45 video card driver as this driver may help bypass this error message as well. You may download this driver at the following link:
