I have just purchased A new Windows 10 PC. When I try to start TW08 it comes up with the message DirectX does not have enough memory. Any answers please?

Hello Gerald,

Yes a lot of people had that message, below is som help there are 2 methods, the best option is to try Cutesybutton his method:

You can try this when you have message: Direct X is reporting there is not enough memory:
There are 2 methods, you have to choose 1 method.

Method1: ( by JoSummer )
You can get around this problem by limiting the system RAM. To do so ..

1. press the Windows + R keys to open the Run dialog, type msconfig, and click/tap on OK.

2. under the Boot tab in System Configuration, click on the Advanced options button

3. check the Maximum memory box and set the value to 4095, hit ok and reboot the system when asked.

You shouldn''''t have any disadvantages by doing so, because there''''s only a few applications or games that are actually addressing (benefit from) more than 4GB system RAM.

Method 2: ( by CutesyButton )
I do have another workaround however, where you don''''t have to restrict RAM so I''''l put it here as another option.

Step One:-
Go to:

And download the latest version of DG Voodoo.

Step Two:-

Extract the DGVoodoo Setup program and DDraw.dll and D3Dlmm.dll files into the bin directory of your Tiger Woods 08 install.
C:\Program Files (x86)\EA Sports\Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 08\bin

Step Three:-

Run the DgVoodoo setup program.

Step Four:-

Head to the directX tab and uncheck "Disable and passthru to real DirectX".

Step Five:-

In the VRAM drop box, type a reasonable value like 520000 KB (note the space between the number and KB) - while it is a drop down box with 3 values, it accepts typed ones as well.

Note- The resolution changes didn''''t work for me here, so I had to use the universal widescreen program (from widescreengaming) and the Tiger 2004 (Custom Menu) res patch to get 1920x1080.

Step Six:-

Run the game, and hey presto. Can confirm this works for Tiger 07 as well.

My Setup:- FX8350/Radeon HD7950 3GB/16GB Memory
