Direct X Error (Although I have a dedicated graphics card.)

    Direct X Error (Although I have a dedicated graphics card.)

    I'm getting the common Direct X Error (Code 3) Running Windows 8 64 Bit. Thing is, I have 2GB dedicated graphics.
    Here's my computer.

    I can run it with this in a .bat file.
    cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Just Cause 2
    justcause2.exe /dxadapter=0
    However, this disables my dedicated graphics card and I get about 10 fps.

    Any advice?

    I have THE EXACT same problem. Likewise, I also am running Windows 8 64Bit and have 2GB dedicated graphics on my laptop. I can only play at 600 x 480 resolution with all low settings it's so bad.

    Have you tried using /dxadapter=1 or /dxadapter=2?

    /dxadapter=1 and /dxadapter=2 both give a fatal error and the game cannot launch. /dxadapter=0 will allow the game to run, but with the problem described.
