I suppose that's not likely to happen; it is going to be fixed. W7 is 2nd most popular OS according to the last steam poll, accounting for more than 6% of all steam users, and that's quite a lot.
According to this https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/dxgi1_3/nf-dxgi1_3-createdxgifactory2#requirements
windows 7 is not supported. ReShade supports that missing functions on windows 7, so basically you don't need any plugins installed with reshade, only dxgi.dll file is required by the game.
BHVR : Just update your engine to 4.25.2 version. Epic reverted this issue back until they find a fix for windows 7 users.
Here is the link of this revert : https://forums.unrealengine.com/unreal-engine/announcements-and-releases/1791750-4-25-2-hotfix-released
Fixed! UE-94787 Error on Windows 7 - The procedure entry point DXGIGetDebuginterface1 could not be located in the dynamic library dxgi.dll
I tried using ReShade and it worked!
Can someone help me with that ?
Download it : https://reshade.me/downloads/ReShade_Setup_4.7.0.exe
Install it with the default settings.
Then launch your game. Press "Esc" in game to go out ReShade settings.
I hope it will help you with this new bug dedicated(/expected) by BEhaviour. Thanks to them.
same error win7 if ı buy win10 ı can play game again?
download the reshade setup that's linked above or wait for the devs to find a fix. dont upgrade to win10 if you'd rather not, just wait or try the fix above
It says choose the correct API for DBD after selecting the DBD exe, after there is a whole list of "effect packages", none of which is "default setting" .. should I select like all 20 from the list??? The closest option is "standard effects" at the top and that didn't work.
I had whichever were already checked when I installed it and that worked for me. I think it was sweetfx and the one above.
This was an issue on the ptb as well. Don't expect a bug fix for this, ever. Either "upgrade" to the garbage that is Windows 10 or stop playing Dead by Daylight. But the sunk cost fallacy is a very real thing so most of us will probably "upgrade". Hope you like getting random updates shoved down your throat each and every day for no apparent reason. What a joke.
Thanks! It worked but how do I get rid of the ReShade bar at the top? xD
Edit: Nevermind got it!
The Reshade worked but we shouldn't be doing their jobs for them. If I had to upgrade to 10, I wouldn't have. I started playing 4 months ago and I watched their Q&A that came out around the same time, and I already got the impression they're lazy bunch of developers. I'm shocked this game reached 4 years with all their bugs/glitches nonsense. People reported this back in August and they did nothing to remedy this and even went live with the update? The head of BHVR should feel embarrassed.
I get this message upon trying the Reshade route ):
I'm also running Win 7 and the Reshade link in n000b51's post worked for me. When you launch the game Reshade will prompt you to go through the tutorial, then you can press esc to make it disappear.
I installed reshade, and now the game launch (technically). But upon launching, the game is telling me I'm offline on steam. While it's clear that I'm online (I'm able to chat with my friends)
I hope they gonna release a fix tomorrow !
I was able to fix this issue by moving the dxgi.dll and dxgi.txt file (possibly from ReShade) from the ...\steamapps\common\Dead by Daylight directory to replace the same files in the ...\steamapps\common\Dead by Daylight\DeadByDaylight\Binaries\Win64 directory. I also tried removing ReShade. This was on Windows 10.
Edit: be sure to save any files before you replace them. This might not be a permanent or universal fix
I hope not. How are people supposed to finish the rift without access to actually get the time in to PLAY/FINISH it. Unless they plan on extending it like a week longer, many people, myself included, will be quite pissed off.
@n000b51 I've already used reshade to get rid of the "createdxgifactory2", it just created me another error message...
Exactly the same message as Rymexd
This is the error I'm dealing with atm
That's it. Win 7 users, YOU ARE OUT! Not allowed to play DBD from now on.
I'm a windows 7 user and I'm currently having the dxgi.dll problem too... I really hope they fix this soon.
they may have to update the store page,this date making my ps4 overheat making the game unplayable.
not good day for anyone trying (TRYING) to play this game
I have windows 7 and the same i habe dxgi.dll problem is really bad i cant progress through the rift is lame and i will not upgrade to win 10 even playing dbd since day 1 really hope they fix this soon
Installed Reshade and it works. Launched the game twice so far without issue. Hate to go this route, but I already paid for The Rift and can't let it go to waste. This will probably be the last Rift I buy and will probably move onto other games for awhile after it is completed. If only this situation didn't happen until it was over.
Same thing here with win8. I was already predicting changes to graphics would entail a dozen bugs that would probably crash the game and I was right.
Fixed dxgi but now i have 0x0000142 error
I dont even have this archive in DbD directories, where is dxgi.dll supposed to be? I verified the files and there is nothing missing, according to the verification.
It seems like there isnt even a dxgi.dll from the update that got into the correct folder. What I read so far about is people getting the file from win32 system folder and pasting it into the folder, or getting it from a reshader download as explained bellow in the next commentary. There was no such file in DbD folder before? Why people are saying there was?
I just found a video how to fix
Hope it works for you D:
Indeed, this fix worked for me so far. I didnt even have a dxgi.dll archive inside the propper folder before. Thanks for the fix.
