Incompatible DirectX

Incompatible DirectX

From BeamNG

If BeamNG.drive directed you here, this means your computer doesn't meet the minimum requirements to be run properly. Specifically, your Graphics Card is not compatible, as it doesn't support DirectX version 11.

For more information, please check the System Requirements and our DirectX 10 blog post.

There's various possible solutions you can try:

  1. Switch to one of the unmaintained DirectX9 or DirectX10 branches that we are specifically providing for these outdated graphic cards
  2. Upgrade your graphics card so it meets the minimum requirements
  3. If you recently bought BeamNG.drive, contact the store you bought it from, as you might be able to get a refund from them (Steam, Humble Bundle, etc)


  • NOTE. Sometimes this issue can occur on compatible hardware, due to bad video drivers not reporting the correct supported DirectX version of the hardware. Reinstalling the video drivers may help in these cases.
