I recently set up a virtualbox installation of windows vista in order to play all of the sam and max games again now that my computer runs ubuntu.
Well, I started installing and when I got to episode 205, as soon as the game launches, I get "sammax205.exe has stopped working and needs to close". All the other episode I've installed so far at least get to the launcher, if not start the full game.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled the game twice, redownloaded and uninstalled and even tried launching in safe mode just to see if the launcher starts. No luck so far. Here is the event log of the error:
[ Name] Application Error
- EventID 1000
[ Qualifiers] 0
[ SystemTime] 2010-07-01T23:23:07.000Z
I also think I may have some d3dx issues, but even so, I should get the launcher up no matter what, right? Any help would be appreciated.
