[Resource] The First Descendant: How Do I Fix the "DirectX 12 Not Supported" Error?

Recommended Posts


If you are a fan of The First Descendant and have troubling running it, you may encounter some specific errors. A common one is the "DirectX 12 not supported" error, which can be very frustrating. But worry not, this guide will help you fix this error and get you back to looting and shooting in no time.

Reason for "DirectX 12 Not Supported" Error

The "DirectX 12 not supported" error in The First Descendant is usually caused by graphics drivers or other visual issues, but it can sometimes be a more general issue as well, so there are a variety of fixes you can try.

Updating Your Graphics Drivers

Your graphic drivers may be outdated if you're experiencing this issue. Updating them is crucial and the process will vary based on your system. For instance, with Nvidia on PC, graphic drivers are managed by GeForce Experience. Your system could be using AMD or some other software.

Checking DirectX 12 Installation

DirectX 12 should ideally already be installed on your system. If you're encountering an error, a good step would be to check if it's installed, and its version. Use the following steps:

  1. Type dxdiag into the search box from the Start menu.
  2. Select the dxdiag run command option that appears.
  3. Check for the DirectX Version number in the popup that appears, which is located near the bottom.

Updating Windows

The latest DirectX is installed alongside Windows updates, so you may need to update Windows to fix the "DirectX 12 not supported" error. Usually, your system will notify you when there's a new update available, but here's how you can check:

  1. Select the Start menu.
  2. Locate and open Settings.
  3. Click Windows update.
  4. Select the Check for update option in the top right corner.

Restarting Your System

Although it might seem too simple, restarting your system sometimes fixes minor bugs or issues causing the error.

Verifying Game Files on Steam

If you're playing The First Descendant on Steam, verifying the game files can be helpful. This general fix applies to many different errors. Follow these steps to do so:

  1. Load Steam.
  2. Open your Library.
  3. Find The First Descendant.
  4. Select the gear icon to open the Settings menu.
  5. Choose Properties.
  6. Click the Installed Files tab.
  7. Choose the Verify integrity of game files option.

Reinstalling The First Descendant

If the above-mentioned methods don't resolve your issue, uninstallation and reinstallation of The First Descendant might be a good step. A clean install might solve the problem if other settings are as they should be.

Additional Information

It's also possible that the issue might be unfixable due to temporary server issues or other major problems. If that's the case, consider checking the server status and known issues lists to see if the game is down, or if a different issue might be happening.
