    Question I've tried to pay with demul but I can't, can You help me?

    Hi, I'm a newbie using the emulator demul and I can't do it works at all… I just wanted play some Naomi games so I downloaded the emulator, I got some bios files and some roms too. The fact is that when I try to run a game, a message pops up to the screen. This is the message:

    gpuDX11
    Error! (HRESULT = 887 a004)
    Create Device And Swap Chain Failed

    So… if you happen to know what I'm doing wrong or what I need to do please post it here and the LATER HERO will be grateful with you.

    usually this shown if GPU doesn't capable of DirectX 11. there is nothing can be done, DX11 renderer require DX11 hardware.

    Hmm I have Windows 7 I was curious about which was my DirectX version so I opened the start menu. I typed dxdiag, press enter and my PC sent this info to me:

    Windows 7 Professional 32 bits (6.1, compilation 7601)
    BIOS: InsydeH2O
    Intel Celeron CPU 847 ad 1.10GHz (2 CPUs), -1.1GHz
    4096MB RAM
    DirectX version: DirectX 11

    Since Demul doesn't work for me I guess this is not enough, but hey I got DirectX11 so what's the troublel? I even don't know what means GPU so please be patient with me and explain a little bit about this

    you have a potato pc. you may try to run reicast or redream to play dreamcast games, but I doubt they will work any good on such hardware.

    How does Demul *not work* for you?

    ElektroDragon: I hate dying over and over. I don't learn from my mistakes. I couldn't play Dark Souls because of this. I bought the Bloodborne Collector's Edition. Like I said, I don't learn from my mistakes!

    haha! Now I Know my PC sucks in every way so I need to buy another better one. But firstly What are the best PC specifications in order to run Demul satisfactorily? No hard feelings I just want to know

    I think its at least 2-core ~3ghz CPU and GPU like ATI HD68xx / Nvidia GTX 460 or better. i.e. 7-8 year old good desktop PC usually works fine.
