The clue to this problem is that by the mixed situation Steam/Ubisoft versions, the game has started to expect binkw32.dll on the wrong place (thus also thinking it is missing an ímage). Solution is to copy the dll to that 'wrong place'.
<LI>THE USER WHO
uninstalled the game from Steam, then re-installed (or repaired) from the DVD OUTSIDE STEAM
, then manually applied the patches 1.01 and 1.02 (from ubi.com) and gets above error:
find the file binkw32.dll in your
C:\Program Files\Dark Messiah of Might and Magic\mm\bin
folder, and move (or copy and paste) it into the main directory:
C:\Program Files\Dark Messiah of Might and Magic
(If you can't find it, you can also copy it from your own DVD: DMOMMGC\Disk1\Support\arch\bin\binkw32.dll, or download and unzip binkw32.zip, it's the same file.)
Also, remove the following key from Registry.
Click Start > Run... type in:
Navigate to the key
which you see in the picture below, and highlight it.
Delete the key.
Then you're done.
<LI>THE USER WHO
has installed the game from the DVD, then updated through Steam (so it has become a Steam game, it is in the Steam>My Games list and user launches the game from there or from the Steam-DMMM shortcut on desktop) and gets above error:
copy&paste it into your STEAM\SteamApps\*your account*\dark messiah might and magic single player\bin
folder. Then you're done.
