Virtual XP game crashes

Postby Morganius » 11. Mar 2018, 21:41

Hello!

I dont know if this is right forum, but I stumbled accross this problem once I tried to launch the game. I did run the starting cinematic, but as you may notice the text leaves tracks behind it. What could cause the problem here? :)

There is no way for us to know what the problem is, it's the people who wrote "Battle.exe" that you'd have to ask about that. Basically, it crashed. Probably it makes some assumptions about the environment that aren't true.

Hmm...the thing is that this game is not old, but also very rare these days and probability of finding those, who made that .exe file, are slim to none sadly. I already spent roughly 8 months to find the original disk itself. Let alone then finding the developers.

It used to run on my old XP perfectly and this game is from the original. What could be wrong then in the environment?

A gazillion of things. First of all, it's a virtual environment. So, if the game has high requirements (or even medium) for a GPU, you won't find them fulfilled in a VM.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
