Monkey Island crashes after ship explodes

posted by Guil on - last edited - Viewed by 451 users

I played Tales of Monkey Island up until the point where the ship explodes and Guybrush is taken to an island on a ship wreck.
But just after it shows "based on a caracter created by Ron Gilbert" the game goes to the loading screen and it crashes.
It shows that "MonkeyIsland101.exe" caused an error and will close.
It played perfectly until it crashes.
I've been playing on 1280x800 quality 3, and I tried turning down the resolution and the quality but the same thing happened.
Here's my notebook settings
Core 2 Duo T5200
Intel GMA 950
2GB RAM

  • The same exact thing happens to me now. I had played the game just past that point just fine the first time I played, I got pretty far into the game and then I quit. The next day, I load up the game and both of my save files have disappeared.
    So I start a new game and now my game will crash at the same place as the above poster, with the same error message. I was playing on 800X600 quality 1 (still runs pretty choppy, pretty disappointing since sam & max ran so well on my computer)

  • This happened to me the first time I played the demo. I am not sure which resolution I chose, but when I started a new game then with another resolution setting, the game did not crash (might be coincidence though).

  • It looks like your video card is right at the edge of it's ability. Things you can try: redownloading/reinstalling the game (just in case)
    updating your graphics drivers
    updating directX

  • I did everything told,
    and I've tried in pretty much all of the resolutions and I could only get to work in 640x480 quality 3 but the graphics look terrible.
    Even in 800x600 it crashes.

  • Well there's one more thing you can try. Could you clear out your temporary internet files in your internet browser then redownload/install the game?

  • How do I delete the whole thing including user saved files?

    If you are talking about ToMI the Installer asks you if you want to delete the save games.
    If you meant the Browser then you should tell us which browser in which version you are using.

  • I use two browser at home.
    Is it really necessary to delete the temporary internet files before trying to download a fresh copy?

    You could probably just use the browser you haven't downloaded it with the last time.
    It is however not a big deal to delete those files. How it's done just depends on the Browser Name and Version.

    In recent Firefox and Internet Explorer you can do it with CTRL-Shift-Del if it's not different than in IEs German version.
    In Firefox you would only select "Cache".
    In Internet Explorer only select "Temporary Internet Files"
    Uncheck all other boxes in each case.

  • Thanks for the help.
    One thing I was wondering, is that I installed a cracked version of the game, to try it, before buying the official version. The cracked version, I think it was the demo with a patch.
    Could any trash file from that first install be causing it? Like when I chose to uninstall it I didn't remove the user files, for instance!
