Blades of Avernum ain't loading


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what happened. I was loading a new scenario into the Scenario folder, then tried to open Blades of Avernum, next thing I know the screen, when it should be going black, goes ghost white and a little message comes up saying that Data Execution Prevention has closed it. Does anyone know whats going on?

Tried it about a dozen separate times. I restarted my computer, it still didn't work. I turned off my computer, turned it back on, and it still wasn't working properly. Than I waited about two hours before I tried it again, and it continues to be defiant. So this is not a one-time thing.

Vista. Thanks for the FAQ, though I'm still a bit confused on how to get the damn thing off.

I must be doing something wrong. I've put Blades of Avernum (and the editor/and without the editor on it) on the list, clicked the second botton on the top, clicked Apply and Okay at the same and separete times. And I am still getting the white screen. I've even restarted my computer several times.

 

*grumble*

If you've added BoA to the list that Data Execution Prevention doesn't monitor and it still doesn't work than I don't know what to tell you.

 

I have Windows Vista as well and it works fine for me.

 

I would try reinstalling BoA in case the DEP deleted a file or blocked a file somehow before it was told to not monitor it.

 

Did your antivirus program pop up any warnings about BoA or try to block it somehow?

I had to (re)download The Tripple Valley, Iffy's second scenario.

 

Thats what I find the strangest. This scenario had already been in my Scenario folder. So how come this particular download didn't work? I got them from the same place (the download link that was posted here).

Well, try reinstalling BoA, in case a crucial file got deleted.

 

If you have the game on CD then your copy will still be registered, if not then save your registration file (whatever that is).

 

I'll check The Triple Valley scenario later on tonight and report back.

Well I tried the Triple Valley scenario last night and it worked fine on my computer.

 

The only bug that occurs is when a dialog box pops up it minimizes right away, leaving me clicking on my screen and having no clue why the game isn't working.

 

I have to push the START key to get the Windows Taskbar back, which shows me that BoA has two open windows at which point I can click on the dialog box and read what it says.

 

But no hassles with the Data Execution Prevention, so I really don't know what the problem is with your computer Ackrovan. frown

 

Like I said, just try reinstalling BoA and maybe that will fix the problem.

 

Also, I am logged into my computer as an administrator, is that what you are doing? Or if you're not, could you?

Tody-Linn - I think thats the only option left. Unfortunatly, I've lost the CD, so I'll have to wait to get the new code from Jeff.

40. You can have 40 scenarios in the scenario folder.

It works!

 

Hooray!

 

As it turns out, it was because I made a shortcut to the scenario folder that it wasn't working. Now that I removed it, Blades is working just fine.
