ve played through dark messiah once now

I recently went back to play it again

At first i got up to chapter 3 and it chrasshes in loading

It says something about failing to lock vertex buffer in CMeshDX8::Lock Vertex Buffer

I reinstall same problem...

I try converting the game to steam by copying the GCFs into the steam apps folder then letting steam dl the last 25% it needs

Now it wont even load the prologue and no longer gives the error message it just crashes

My systems specs are:
P4 2.8 Ghz
512MB Ram
7300GT

I have patched to 1.02 or w/e its at now

Hi willias.

Please say if you are running it through steam in a following post if this doesnt work.


I'll start off by offering this solution.

Search for vidcfg.bin using start>search.
Delete this file and try to play again.
(I *think* this will work)

If it does, post again, and ill tell you how to pwn it without following that process each time.

> N.B - If that doesnt work, try swapping your desktop colours to 16-bit. <

Right, to my physics exam!

I just tried deleting my vidcfg, and that allowed em to start the prologue(for the second time) , it crashed when loading chapter 1

Ill try the other thing in the morning

Anyother ideas?
