ok, what i did wrong is i had my video set to 16 bit color i changed it to 32bit, then i seen the intro, then it crashed, then because i was running 1024x768 i had to download the prefs.prop for that res now it works.
Ok now with the "prefs.prop" added after launch i get the black 4X4 window the load crossbones appear, it spins then it crashes, and not all the time do i get the 4x4 black window sometimes a white window comes up and it crashes, i tryed to delete the prefs.prop, no affect, btw i got the MonkeyIsland101_setup.exe and LaunchOfTheScreamingNarwhal_Setup.exe in the LaunchOfTheScreamingNarwhal_Setup.exe there is no directx dll in the game folder like there was in the 101 setup.?!? anyways i tryed both with and without the directx Mar2009_d3dx9_41_x86 dll.
