If you’re playing Asheron’s Call on Windows 10, you may have an issue with DirectX. It doesn’t occur for everyone, but for those that get the popup about DirectX failure/errors, first try this workaround:
When at the Character Selection screen, before clicking on Create Character or Enter World, Press and hold the Alt key, then press the Enter key.
The game should switch from Full Screen to Windowed mode and continue to work correctly.
Once you are in the world, you can adjust the game window to be higher resolution.
