    Hello everyone,
    i have some trouble with GameMaker 8,7,6 because when i test a game made in those versions, this error shows:
    Failed initialize drawing surfaces, please check that your graphics card
    needs the minimum requeriments and your drivers are up-to-date,
    if your card has little memory, try switching
    to a little resolution.
    I have a
    Windows 10
    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.80 GHz
    8 GB of RAM
    x64-based PC
    NVIDIA 8500 GT

    I don't know the reason of that so it will be apreciated if somebody solved it.
    PD: Game Maker 5 works ok.

    These are very old versions & Sure about DirectX was installed
    and check surface_exists() before drawing any specific surface
