A couple of months ago, there was an offer to get a free episode just for signing up to the newsletter. I did and chose Sam & Max Episode 201 (Ice Station Santa). Unfortunately I just can't start the game more than once. I wrote an email to the support [issue-15889], but the answer must have been lost in the mail... I didn't care too much then, since the boxed version of season 2 was to be released just weeks later. It has since been delayed twice and I just don't want to wait any longer. Maybe you guys have an idea.
The first time I start the game after installing, it works just fine: No crashes here, the game seems to be fully playable.
Unfortunately, I can't get it to start a second time. It crashes right after starting, doesn't even get to the main menu. Only a Windows message appears, telling me the program doesn't react anymore...
De- and reinstalling enables me to start it once more, but again: just once.
This happens in the demo, as well as in the unlocked full version...
Curiously enough, every other episode of season two (at least the demos) and season one (JoWood's DVD-Version) work fine without any problems.
I use a
Intel Core2 Q6700
nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX
8 GB RAM
Windows Vista 64bit
I hope you can give me some hints on how to solve that issue, can't wait to kick Santa's butt!
