So this particular problem is not exclusive to CiV, I have been having issues with Windows and games for months when windows updated. What happens specifically now is that DX12 mode is not working on Civ, I get the error "No compatible graphics device found"... but it works fine in Dx11 for now. This is not the gpu (a 1070) or anything like that, it was working fine before windows updated a week ago, but I think the issue is somehow related to Directx that's not working properly. Other games (Namely, Stellaris, etc) give errors in failing to initialize Direct3D or 'finding a compatible graphics device' I already reinstalled Direcx (With the installerso f many games, even downloaded directx), the redistributables too, the graphics drivers, I even attempted a manual uninstall of DirecX (Deleting some files then reinstall) but I still get those errors, and VI with DX12 is the most recent one. I mainly want to avoid having to do a clean reinstall of windows because of the time it would take me so I don't know what else I can try , any ideas?
