Can't open the game

Post by Thorvaldus »

Ok, so I recently downloaded the program, and every time I enter the actual game, I can only move my mouse in certain parts. My mouse is in one corner, and then in another. I've tried downloading the program again twice, and my laptop has the requirements, but I still can't seem to do anything...

What system you're in and your hardware. It would be much easier to tell your problem.

Hey, thanks for replying so quickly. I am running on Windows 8, GeForce GTX 850 M graphics card, i7 processor, and 8 gigs of RAM. Hope this helps.

To be more exact, I have almost no control over my mouse, and it moves erratically from one place to another...

Have you tried to back compatibility to windows 7. You had a great rig and It run smoothly in win 8 the last time I tried. Or tried to delete your config in the mygames folder.

Just in case anyone else has this problem under Windows 8, it was solved for me by setting the Compatibility for the EXE files in the bin directory to Windows 7. The "partial" full screening problem went away as well.

Right click the .exe file and there should be a tab that says compatibility and you can change it from there. After you have changed the simple setting click OK.

I have had the same problem also, and I have switched compatibility mode on for all the .exe files. Can someone please help?

Thanks,

Hello! Just checked this post. Have you tried re-installing the game?
