Re: getting Failed to Initialize the Engine error while launching Orcs Must Die

I have refereed your problem and first think I will ask you is what is your laptop specification. Does your laptop configuration matches with the requirements of the game? Because many time game does not work because system specification does not match with the requirements of the game. First check this thing.

Re: getting Failed to Initialize the Engine error while launching Orcs Must Die

The system requirements of the Orcs Must Die game is
  • Operating System: Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7
  • Processor: 2.0 GHz Dual Core
  • RAM: 2 GB
  • GPU (graphic card): NVIDIA GeForce 6800/ATI Radeon x1950/better with 256MB VRAM
  • Direct X: DirectX 9.0c
  • Hard disk space: 5 GB

if you computer or laptop specification is not according to to above mentioned requirements then I think game might not work with your computer. If you need any more information then let me know.

Re: getting Failed to Initialize the Engine error while launching Orcs Must Die

yes your laptop configuration is enough to run this game but if you see the requirements of the Orcs Must Die game there it is mentioned that system should have Direct X 9 installed and I think you are facing this problem because of the direct X. I will first suggest you that try to solve this problem by reinstalling the Direct X in your laptop.

First you have to uninstall the Direct X from your laptop and after uninstalling the Direct X from your laptop you have to restart the laptop. After restarting the laptop you have to first delete the temporary files from your laptop. Once you delete the temporary files from your laptop you have to download the Direct X from the internet and after downloading the Direct X in your laptop you have to install it. after installing the Direct X you have to try to start the Orcs Must Die game and afetr that you have to see whether you are getting the same problem or not.

I think after reinstalling the Direct X in your laptop you will be able to run the Orcs Must Die game in your laptop without facing any issues.

Re: getting Failed to Initialize the Engine error while launching Orcs Must Die

there was similar problem occurred with me also I was also getting the same message while launching the Orcs Must Die game and after that I searched on the internet for the solution and I come to know that I have to I have to update the Direct X in my computer and after that I have update the Direct X in my computer and after updating the Direct X also I was having the same problem and then I have tried to solve this problem by downloading the updated graphic drivers for my system and after that I have uninstalled the previously installed graphic drivers from my computer and then I have installed new drivers and after that when I tried to run the Orcs Must Die game at that time game worked properly. I think you should try the same and after that you have to check what the result is.

Re: getting Failed to Initialize the Engine error while launching Orcs Must Die

If you have already tried to solve this problem by reinstalling the graphic drivers from your laptop and updating the graphic drivers also then I will suggest you to check other games in your laptop whether other game is also gives you the same issue or not. if other game does not give you the same problem then I think problem is with the Demo version which you have installed in your laptop. According to me you should reinstall the Orcs Must Die demo and after that check what the result is.

Re: getting Failed to Initialize the Engine error while launching Orcs Must Die

Many of games on integrated graphics cards are not supported and this and I think in your case same problem thing is making issue. I donít have technical information and main reason about why games refuses to work with integrated graphics. here I am not trying to say you that this game is not compatible with integrated graphics but there are many users who have integrated graphics in there system and getting the same error message.
