I found the problem, when I first tried to launch penelop v1.2, I had another game running.
It makes spartan.exe crash, maybe trying to get ressources in exclusiv mode ?
The "Spartan" folder in "My Document" was the one from v1.1 zip file
I tried to relaunch spartant.exe from the v1.2 folder, it's now working fine !
So the only explanation I have is that v1.1 initialyzed smth needed by 1.2
So, to sum up, now my v1.2 is working fine with the "My Document/Spartan" v1.1 ...
Tomorrow I'll try to redo everything from scratch to try to understand what was wrong and if I can identify the problem
Haha, good question !
I've downloaded v1.1 and it's working like a charm (I had to download and add "xlive.dll" in the folder)
I'm just checking my post only now, I was playing AOEO since
If VC++ redist was missing or smth like this I should get another error msg than "Apps stop working" like the one I had with version 1.1 : "missing xlive.dll"
So I don't thing it's VC++ redist or DX issue, anyway if any of those was need it should be good to include them in the package or add a download link.
Yes, like I said I followed every steps described in the video.
Tried different launch admin or not, compatibility launch, launching from C:, nothing worked
I must admit that this project is really awesome and I can't wait trying it.
I donwloaded version 1.2, moved the folders, downloaded the new_soloi scenario.
When I launch spartan.exe in administrator, it simply crash with a generic error "application stopped working"
No more info.
Any idea ?
I'm on windows 7 x64
