Game Problems

Postby Galacticus on Mon Dec 04, 2006 7:29 am

Alright! So the game works on some people's computers and not one others. I found that too - i did a test download on both my parents computers, and it only worked on one. unfortunately, i'm far from a computer genius, and couldn't work out the problem. :o

...so, any computer geniuses here who can? ^^;

if you got an error message, post here and tell us what it was. if you know how to fix this or found a way to fix it yourself, please post too. :P

for starters - andyouthinkimcrazy: you said you went to great lengths to play the game, but you did get it to work. ...what did you do? O_O


big apology to those that can't play it yet... but i've really done as much as i can T_T;. i was up 'til four in the morning yesterday trying to work on the bugs... but i have six huge tests today (incredibly unlucky timing, i know) so more galacticus problem solving will have to wait... :cry:

Ya Know, this time when I tried to start Galacticus, it got farther... It got to some small screen where it wants me to specify a folder or something. It no longer instantly goes to 'This file could not be opened'. :D

if they tell you an exact file name you're missing, just google it and you should find an easy download somewhere :)

what is the file name? (i'll see if i can find it and post a link)

the one you downloaded didn't work? ...did you put it in the right directory? it goes in either windows > system or windows > system(#)... which is kinda confusing...

...is that what you meant? O_o;

Ah, finally everything is where it should be. Now, Galacticus (the game), when I click it, says something about C:\Documents and Settings\Agaren\My Documents\RPGXP

Actually, I have both System and System32

Theres no Default Option. Theres just 'C:\Documents and Settings\Agaren\Mina dokument\RPGXP' shown in a small bar. When you click it, a yellow sign with japanese letters appear. If you click it, Galacticus closes down.

that's right. then a folder should be created, and you go into it to find an orange icon saying "game."

okay... in the "find" thing, where it listed C:\Documents and Settings\Agaren\Mina dokument\RPGXP , click on that. windows explorer would be the manual way to get there.

do you know what windows you have, btw? 2000, 95, 98, etc?
