Playing on Vista trouble

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest_The_Cursed_One_*

hey there

my name is the_cursed_one you may or may not remember me i used to play a while back

 

i recently bought a laptop with vista on it (compaq Presario CQ90 Notebook)

its an intel processor 1.66GHz

3gb Ram

 

thats really all the info i have on it

 

anyway

when i 1st install (using the normal windows installer (german mirror)it tells me the program may not have installed correctly and to install using recommended settings, now if i ignore that the client starts up fine but when i log if after everything has loaded it just tells me the client has stopped working and to close. now ive repeated this many times and am now coming to the nice forum here for some help lol

 

thanks in advance

Have you run windows update to make sure all of your drivers are up to date? Is there anything in your log files that might indicate what the problem is?

i get Automatic Updates all the time

and as far as log reports all i get told is that a problem with the program has caused it to stop running

Try opening the Documents\Eternal Lands\main folder and deleting that file, and then starting the client again.

thanks for the help but no dice. still the same problem, ive noticed something, on xp there is a split second when i sign in that eternal lands says not responding then it corrects itself. but on vista the second that happens it just decides to trash it. whether thats related to the error or has nothing to do with it i dont know haha, i would like to get back in Eternal Lands but at the moment that seems like a small possibility haha

Instead of clicking the "Login" button, click the "Settings" one: turn off most effects (eyecandy and sky), enable Poor man, disable sound - then try to login.

If you manage to login, you can turn back on a few effects at a time, and trying to re-login to see what causes your crashes

thanks but still nothing, i still think it has something to do with the game sort of freezing for a split second and vista being nice and "helpful" and jumping in straight away. is there a way to shut down that vista auto help thing that shuts eternal land down the second it freezes because its apparently "not working" when its actually just loading
