TMI - Nothing happening

posted by MurrayTheSkull on - last edited - Viewed by 1.7K users

Launching the shortcut ends up creating a MonkeyIsland101.exe process.... which lives for about 10 seconds then vanishes. Nothing comes up on the screen at all. No errors, no page to register the game, no game, no black screen, nothing.

Im using a 4870 1GB with the latest drivers (Which I have reinstalled) and I have also tried re-installing the game twice (On different drives no less) to no avail.

So I tried downloading and running a random Strongbad demo and that seems to have issues as well. This time at least you get the register/demo page... but when clicking to go to the demo that vanishes and nothing happens.

Im using windows vista 32-bit.

Ill prat around so more when I get home, but any ideas would be useful.

Thanks.

    Saturday evening and I can't play ToMI. WOOOAAAAAH! :(

  • we could organise us into a self-help group, i don't know the right english term for such a thing. what a pity!

  • "Was glaubst du denn, was wir hier tun?"

    - What do you think are we doing here? I don't know if Telltale is actually working on this problem, but I hope so.

  • guys give them their well deserved break at the weekend!

    I`m eager to play the game too, but I can see that the weeks before and after a new game are packed with work. This weekend`s us, next others though they wouldn`t get free time for a few weeks.

  • I really do appreciate Telltale's good support and I am willing to give them their free weekend. But... without Guybrush, my life just isn't complete.

  • @skicamel said: MaGoo:
    Just doing some text comparisons between the earlier launchers and the current, a number of things had changed. For a quick demonstration, open the index.html that the launcher creates (Start the launcher, Start-->Run--> type %temp% click enter. Sort by date, find the folder the launcher created...). The earlier index.html opened alone will open as a web page with a number of portions of the launcher showing. If you try to open the newer launcher (most noticeable in IE), it will continuously reload itself. Not that this has anything to do with the problem, but just a generic example that the underlying code has changed.

    I gathered from another poster somewhere that another version was able to be run by bypassing the launcher. That's not possible with the version downloaded from Telltale, but I am curious if the issue isn't the launcher alone. I understand the need to update things as you go, as the hackers have always hacked the last version, so I wouldn't suggest re-implementing an earlier version, but it might be worth looking at in the short term, even if just emailing those being vocal with a workaround. I'm really curious if this would launch with no problems if the launcher wasn't a part of the process.



    Interesting. I dropped that into IE8, and FF. FF just dropped it due to a lack of ActiveX (expected), but the posts were borked, and from analysis they're linked to the control.

    If you try to open the newer launcher (most noticeable in IE), it will continuously reload itself. Not that this has anything to do with the problem, but just a generic example that the underlying code has changed.

    IE8 went into some sort of EPIC panic. It kept trying to load something unattainable. I worked out what's failing, but given my laptop and desktop run the same versions of things, I cannot work out why.

    IT WORKS!!!!! I got the silly thing running... but this can't really be the solution for everyone...

    I used processexplorer to have a look at what was running and I watched and the last thing it did was access a file dinput8.dll (or something like that) and anyway I searched up on that and it was directx... so I ran the dxdiag and the thing failed trying to open the panel for direct input... so I updated my sound card drivers (hadn't thought of that one before then) and also tried to install Direct X again from downloading the whole thing from MS... this time it didn't tell me there was nothing to do, it just said checking files for updates... anyway after that I restarted and tried dxdiag again, and once again the input pannel was taking for ever to load... and while it was doing that I decided to plug in my wife's Tablet to fiddle with the drawing programs while I wait and the silly thing started working... I loaded up the Monkey Island game and I got into the screen asking for my details... so I haven't played as yet, as I thought I'd let you all know my progress and if it helps any of you than that might be worth the time :)
