Unable To Start Game

Post by OblivionsKnight on Sat Oct 08, 2011 7:45 am

I've been watching all the videos and ended up deciding to try it out. But I can't run it at all! When I click the "Login" button, everything seems to work fine. But then when it seems to try loading the game, before any start game screen or anything, it crashes with this error.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Hi there,

I'm afraid i've gotta ask the obvious...

Are you using Vista / Windows 7 (it doesn't work on XP).
Do you have the SlimDX runtime installed?
DotNet 4?

The OP here http://blokworld.forumotion.co.uk/t59-version-available-take-2 details these if you don't.

If you have these installed, could you let me know a few details about your system? OS, 32 bit / 64 bit, ram, GFX card?

Sorry, I'm using Windows 7-32 bit, ATI Radeon... something, I can't quite recall. 6800X, I think? I do have SlimDX and I've had DotNet4 installed for quite some time.

Could you check the Log.TXT file and let me know the last few lines? It's the bits with the paths to folders i'm interested in to see how far you got with loading resources.

Could you also let me know your login name for the game so i can check your specs also.

There is no Log.TXT, it seems it didn't even get far enough to make one!

Hi there,

It appears you didn't even get to the stage where your specs were recorded Sad

I've done a bit of checking and the only way i can duplicate the error is by forcing an exception while the display device is being created.
This sounds like an issue with DirectX or SlimDX i'm afraid.

Could you try redownloading SlimDX from this link and trying again?

I've reinstalled SlimDX, but it does not appear to be helping. I tried restarting my PC to see if there was anything that needed files that were being used in order to update and or apply changes to, to no avail. It refuses to cooperate with me.

I guess I just can't try it, if it won't run. Blast it all, I was so looking forward to it...
