DirectX3d failed to Initialize
Win 10 Creator update
Laptop with intel graphics card
It's inconsistent. Sometimes it happens before I get to the characters screen. Sometimes it does not happen at all. Sometimes it happens when I switch from full screen mode to another app (alt-tab). Usually if I can get a character into the game world and stay in full screen mode, it's fine for that session.
Things I have tried:
- repair/reset graphics from the launcher
- reinstalling my video driver
- rebooting the PC
Any other suggestions for me?

Ranged weapons and.. FPS drops..?

Bad routing to DDO from me
Why does it jump so high? This isn't even as bad as it gets. Sometimes, it doesn't do this. It's fine, but then, for hours, I get 500 ping, or higher. And its always these qwest routers somewhere. It seems like DDO is the only thing that routes..
