I tried EVERYTHING!!!
I get to the point in the launcher where I click "Launch game", and after clicking it I get: "Telltale games has encountered a problem and has to be closed" message.
In "Additional data":
AppName: monkeyisland102.exe AppVer: 2009.8.19.32126 ModName: unknown
ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 00000000
I have a rather new system with Win XP SP3, and nVidia 9800GT. All other stuff (games) works great, including ToMI chapter 1.
I tried the following:
*Adding chapter 2 to the DEP exception list.
*Updated DirextX to the newest.
*Updated video drivers.
*Temporarily disabled all startup services.
*Temporarily disabled firewall.
*Re-downloaded and re-installed game, both from the email link and from the "My games" link.
*I even tried to un-install, disconnect from the internet, and re-install. I was hoping it's a network problem in the unlocking mechanism, and maybe a manual unlock will do the trick. It didn't... I looked at "regedit" after un-installing, and it's all still riddled with ToMI 2 entries!! May explain why un-installing doesn't really help...
Nothing helped, and ToMI 1 still works by the way.
I emailed support a few days ago, no response.
Is there a patch/fix coming soon? From looking at the forum, this game has massive problems, and by how it looks now, it's not going to change!! At least TellTale doesn't announce otherwise. I believe that paying customers deserve as little as knowing what is going on, and what is going to happen!
Please just say something.
