    So what does this do, automatically delete the shader catch files before startup?

    Yes. It will help with the D3DX errors. I will add deeper details of it all soon. Been a bit busy in the garden today

    Thanks for your response Mr. X2. Currently there are some issues with Firefox 33.1 crashing and other funny stuff. Switched to Google and it downloaded and unzipped ok.

    I selected “Delete CXL Shadercache and start CXL 2012” and it works fine.

    During the past few months I've been deleting everything in the Shadercache folder manually and often forgetting to do so when I start the game. The annoying d3dx error window would appear and I could only get rid of it by restarting the computer.

    This is GREAT! Saves time and annoyance. I really appreciate this improvement!

    Thanks, X.

    just noticed it stopped working for me o_O
    i know there is no problem with your file, just thought you might have an idea why :sneaky::)
    starting the game still works, but the shadercache is not cleared
    already tried to execute it as an administrator, but no difference :(
    (i did not make any changes till the last time it worked)

    Trojan "Win.Trojan.Agent-822724" detected in the zip file. The attachment has been removed. If you downloaded this mod you may want to check the file for virus or trojans

    Its probably the antivirus picking on the exe file which has been made from the bat file using Advanced BAT to EXE Converter.
    I use ESET Smart Security and it has not picked any thing up.

    I have added a note explaining that it might cause a false positive in some antivirus programs.

    The antivirus software on the server already removed it.

    OK. I think the best way is to offer an external link then if people still want the exe file.
    Here's the scan I just did.

    The exe file to start 2012 will work OK. If you have installed CXL 2012 in a different drive then it will not work. You may have to make your own exe file with the tool I gave a link to and put the correct path to CXL 2012.
    If you use it to try and start CXL Platinum it will not work. You have to make your own exe file for platinum as the path will have your username in it as I explained in the instructions.

    [Quote = "skullz613, post: 16539, miembro: 7"] El archivo exe para comenzar 2012 trabajará en Aceptar. Si ha instalado CXL 2012 en una unidad diferente, entonces no va a funcionar. Puede que tenga que hacer su propio archivo exe con la herramienta le di un enlace hacia y poner la ruta correcta al CXL 2012.
    Si lo usa para tratar de iniciar CXL Platinum no va a funcionar. Usted tiene que hacer su propio archivo exe para el platino como el camino tendrá su nombre de usuario en la que como ya he explicado en las instrucciones. [/ Quote]




    editar el archivo de establecer la ruta donde Cities XL instalado en mi pc y aún así me da el mismo mensaje.
    y el problema continúa jugando con la D3DX error bendita, si es posible me explique cuál es la manera correcta para editar este archivo, les dejo una captura de pantalla para que pueda ver el mensaje de error que consigo. t9.jpg t9.jpg

    I think the first thing you need to tell me, is the location of your CXL 2012 shortcut. As your using Windows 8, something might be different.
    The normal game shortcut on the desktop should be pointing to the Public desktop. Right click on your game shortcut, choose properties the general.

    loca.jpg

    No username is required to make it work is it uses the shortcut on the Public account.

    This is the same for the Delete CXL Shadercache and start CXL 2012.bat and the Delete CXL Shadercache and start CXL 2012.exe. They both use the same path

    Delete CXL Shadercache.bat

    This bat file does not need changing. It points to the default folder for the shadercache.

    If you owned CXL Platinum, you would have to make changes to the Delete CXL Shadercache and start CXL Platinum.bat but it looks like you own 2012.
