  • GetRenderTargetData Failed - Device lost

    Hey folks!

    I just finished Alan Wake. Great, long game and looked and ran perfect at max visuals and at 1920x1080 on my aging system:

    i7-860 (oc to 3.8Ghz)
    8GB RAM
    HD 5870 Graphics
    Windows 8 Enterprise (64-bit)

    So I decided to fire up "American Nightmare" since I got the games in a Steam bundle.

    Well, when I try to play the game, "GetRenderTargetData Failed - Device lost" is the error I get after the game crashes to desktop after trying to open menu (Esc) in game or pressing the key to read the manuscript. What the?

    I've done a little research and learned that one workaround is to reduce resolution but I choose not to as, well, it is 2013 and 1920x1080 should avail in any recent game. Plus it lowers the level of detail onscreen.

    Anyone run into this issue before and if so, did you find a workaround?

    Thanks in advance.
