Thread: Application crashing before it fuly starts up?

  1. #1

    Default Application crashing before it fuly starts up?

    Well I just downloaded the .exe and installed it, then when I try to run it my mouse control is reverse, the screen goes white and then nothing happens. should I re-download the program and try to re-install, or is it an in-depth problem?

    Oh, and I'm running Windows XP.

    Hmm, can you attach the log.txt file? (should be findable in its main directory after running the game)

    Ok, are you comfortable with cd'ing to the dir and running things from the command prompt?

    If so, try this from your novashell dir:

    game -res 800 600 -window


    If that works, it would give me a clue that it's video related.

    Well, if you don't know how to use the command prompt, go to start -> run and type in the following:

    "C:\Program Files\Novashell\game.exe" -res 800 600 -window

    Of course, you'll need to change that path if you have Novashell somewhere else on your system.

    (Only 14? I used MS-DOS before I could read. )

    Ah, thanks Ian. I'll try that tomorrow (been up all night, I'm tired. sleep)

    and hey, I'm probably the only 14 year old who can read HTML and CSS in my city :P

    I tried it and it worked, so I guess it's my computer then?

    Well, I'd suspect that your video card is older and doesn't have much memory - you can still use novashell, but you'd have to run at less than 1024X768 it looks like.

    However, this is still a big novashell bug, as it should give a clear error message if this kind of thing happens, I'll try to fix it.

    So how would I go about running Novashell?

    EDIT: Blargh, I'm stupid. scratch this post, I got it.
