I need help!
« on: March 31, 2009, 12:15:40 AM »
Backstory first:

I had FS2 on a seperate hard drive. Main one crashed, even lost registry entries.

Backstory end.


Now, although i've changed the launcher INIs to my new drive name, whenever i try and use ANY launcher it either only opens in the task list, or opens and crashes with something like this

AppName: launcher.exe    AppVer: 5.5.0.4    ModName: launcher.exe
ModVer: 5.5.0.4    Offset: 0000e97e

Whats wrong? How can it be fixed?

Be aware i no longer have non-corrupt ISOs and will not spend $6 SUD on anything.

So let me get this straight, you've never paid for the game, and yet now that you can legitimately acquire for $cheap$, you refuse to do so?  Wouldn't the fact that it's legit now make your Dad happy enough to buy it for you anyway?

Regardless, why not just delete the inis altogether?  You can run the launcher all by its lonesome to see if something is wrong.  And what does the launcher not running have to do with not wanting to buy the game?  Retail FS and the SCP Launcher are two completely unrelated things.

To eliminate all chances 'buy the game, it'll be fixed' will be offered as a fix.

I'm a poor pirate.

They're getting harder to find because they're illegal.

Go pay a buck and a half to GOG and they'll give you the game legitimately.

I will do my absolute best to come up with a solution to fix a problem for a game you pirated... that I paid for (more than 6 dollars mind you)

Any minute now... gonna come up with a solution... hold on a sec.

I originally got it from turey's isntaller and the files once linked at this forum, as did alot of others. please stop telling me to buy buy a game i really can't afford......There ARE other fixes.

Also, it seems it might be the registry...... o_o

Any exampels of what fs2 registyr entries are NORMALLY?

Also, FS2 and all it's standalone mods are on an external drive.

I still have TBP/BTRL which have the same problem anyway, you can come up with a fix for that without damaging your moral fiber, right?

Wow...   I'm on unemployment and if I didn't own it already at least I could buy it. Well except I can't (I have to pay cash for everything).

So feel lucky you got a daddy to run to.


HOWEVER, have you never mowed a lawn or shoveled snow?

Offer to babysit some "twerps" (a pokemon term), or possibly go into an alley and offer a trench-coated gentleman some manual "relief".

I'm sure $6.00 is not the insurmountable amount you make it out to be...

Well, yeah. It's the credit card deal.

And winter is over, my money since spent on a rifle after years of saving and shoveling....

So they let you own a rifle but not a credit card?

I feel a 2nd amendment thread coming. :p

I enjoy the fact that a kid who enjoys stealing now owns a firearm.
