Same problem reported here:
I think Cryptic is well aware of this issue... just do a Google search of this error msg:
Fatal Error: Direct3D driver returned error code (E_OUTOFMEMORY) while creating a texture.
Lots of reports all related to PWE, also including Neverwinter.
SOME TESTING DONE AND...
Well, I tried a few things that SO FAR are working. First of all, when I checked under OPTIONS/VIDEO/DISPLAY MODE I discovered that Fullscreen wasn't selected by default as in the past. Only a Max Windows screen. I changed that to Fullscreen.
On that very same tab, I went all the way down to TROUBLESHOOTING. On the first option you can change between AUTO, DirectX 9 and DirectX 11 beta. I selected DirectX 9 because I wasn't sure about the default setting. The option needs a game restart, so I did.
I tried beaming up and down New Romulus' Staging Area several times with my three characters (1 Fed, 1 Klingon and 1 Romulan) and SO FAR no crashes. I'll keep testing.
: So far, one crash after 6 hours playing.
I'll give these a shot.
It actually crashed quite a bit over the weekend.
Something else I found out too, doesn't matter how you get to the Staging Area.
I was being from, I think Phaeros Crater, to the Staging Area, and the game crashed. One time, exited the Command Center, and right there on the steps it crashed.
Enjoy and have fun!
It is a game.
