G'day all,

Loved playing the demo of this game so signed straight up for the full version.  After some fluffing around trying to get the download (took 24 hours before it arrived in my inbox) I got it installed, but lo and behold, to my horror, it will not start.  The config launches and then goes onto the Bit-blot screen, but once Naija starts to fade in, I get the Vista "this program has stopped working" message.

I've tried the patches, to no avail, and I've looked at the debug log (which is *HUGE*).  There are several similar errors, all along the lines of "cannot open scripts/maps/premap_title.lua: No such file or directory" but with various filenames (premap_title, map_title, premap_songcave, map_songcave, etc) and several "Could not find texture" faults.

I've uninstalled everything, and reinstalled it, but I just get the same errors.

Please Help!!!

Which OS do you have, Windows XP, Vista, Linux, Mac

Erm, Nevermind, Search on the forum for "Vista", I think there's a fix there.

EDIT: This topic.

God sees and knows everything, but at least he won't gossip about it.

Cheers for that.

OK, tried to run as administrator, and tried reinstalling Aquaria outside "Program Files".  No joy, still getting the same crash.  Checked the debug again, this time there were no errors relating to scripts, but some of the textures are still not being found.

Will keep on persevering nevertheless...

You do have the latest drivers for your stuff?

yep, fully up to date.  Just uninstalled everything, reinstalled the demo.  That works fine still.  Uninstalled that, installed full version, which falls flat on its face again...

can you email me with the debug.log?

I think this is a problem that a couple other people have had. I managed to get them some temporary solutions. There are some more universal fixes I'd like to try out with you as well, if you have time.

Shoot me an email. Smiley

*feels ashamed he didn't try this first*

Run it in compatibility mode for Win XP and it works fine.

*slaps self in forehead*

Thanks for the tips folks.
