"Unsupported language English in stringtable" Happens if an entry was not found in the desired language e.g., English. This error will even show if it falls back to another lanuage e.g., Original. When stringtable can't find the entry it wants, it first tries Original entry, then English after that, the first entry in the stringtable is taken.


Creating a diagnostic file for DirectX

To better analyze the reason for malfunctions it might be useful to also create a DirectX diagnostic file.

  • Press WIN+R to open the run command.
  • Enter dxdiag and confirm
  • After data collection is done, click on "Save All Information" and specify a location of where the file should be created.
