I load the game up and it exits to the desktop. I can click on the icon again to get it to run for another 2 seconds before dumping me out again. I tried disabling items, running as admin, changing compatibility, and nothing will work.
Well, I'm on Windows 7, so I guess it's not officially supported on this OS. I guess I'll just wait a couple of years for it to get fixed on here.
Does the launcher itself crash, or does the game crash when you click on Play in the launcher?
The launcher is fine. When it's playing the movie, it exits me back to the desktop. I can alt-tab or click on the icon to get back in for about a second or two. I have played with every setting, set CPU affinity, etc. and I can't get it to stop dumping me back to the desktop. Maybe it has something to do with the movie codec? I just don't know what else to do.
If the latter, I assume you've tried every single option in Setup - including resolution and disabling sound?
Well, I got it running, but it was a pain.
I had to disable visual themes, desktop composition and display scaling on high DPI settings. I am running in Win95 compatibility mode, but I'm not sure if any of the other ones will work. I also run the program as an administrator. CPU affinity doesn't seem to matter. I haven't played with the resolution settings, so it looks like trash. Once I finally got it started up, I needed to unplug my controller, which was a problem in another thread. Then, I can put my controller back in and setup the buttons. After that, everything seems to be fine. Sometimes, on start-up, it still kicks me back to the desktop, but I can click the icon again to get back in the game.
