AV2 game hangs on startup

7 posts in this topic

In Avernum 2, I create a party and click done. I go to the next screen that describes the Empire invading and click the mouse. I then go the next screen ("The power of the Empire completely dwarfed . . .") and click the mouse when the screen says click the mouse to continue. Then I get the rolling cursor (used to be the rotating hourglass). There's no error - the game just hangs.

 

The OS is Windows 8.1. Please tell me if there's other information you need.

This was the problem. I was installing off my old, old, old Avernum 2 CD. When I install from the new Avernum 2 - Crystal Souls demo link, it works fine. The graphics and skill tree are so much better that I'll just go with the new version and plunk down the $20 for the full version.

 

Thanks!

I you email support@spiderwebsoftware.com with registration number from the demo, your name, and the address you used when you bought the game, they will send you an activation code for free.

Err, no, they won't. The Avernum 2 CD has Avernum 2 on it, not Avernum 2: Crystal Souls.

My bad. I skimmed instead of reading fully. I thought OP meant a newer version of the original.

Nope, I meant from the current version of the old Avernum 2. Most problems tend to sort themselves out with a fresh install.

Then if whatever serial you have doesn't work to register the game, email support with your info
