Justice good one http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.
It seems the dvd-player can't read the manual.pdf file. Can you open it by hand?

05-17-2006, 10:45 AM
yea i can open the freaky pdf manual. atm i'm watching it , dropping tears. i can open the pdf , i cant c it , but why the installation program doest read it , xenophobe?

Obviously your reader has some isues with the dvd. Try borrowing the reader from your friend and install it using his. It should work.
You should be able to play the game using your reader.

well i have this problem using the dvd reader , or emulating the iso, both r the same cr4p, still appear, using daemon and alcohol for emulate , but no1 of those 2 works with the pdfreak

05-17-2006, 11:16 AM
should i try to create the hommv folder and copy the pdf? or the ugly disk will ask for him

05-17-2006, 11:17 AM
btw inside the dvd r 2 winrar files . one of them gives me an unexpected error . the other have inside the game , but cant unzip it, tells me error too, any1 unzipped them? tell me how lol

05-17-2006, 11:19 AM
lol just wasting my freetime

Try turning off your antivirus if you have one, sometimes they can cause problems during installation.

If you don't have an antivirus, don't look any further, the problem does not come from the disk..

05-17-2006, 03:03 PM
I'm surprised you have this problem with the release version... Are you sure you're not trying to install the cracked version you burned on a DVD???

However, you might want to check the exact spelling of the manual file in the language you selected: it should be 'Game Manual.pdf', not 'GAME_MAN.PDF'.

But, really, I doubt you'd be able to show us a photo of you holding the H5 box...

05-21-2006, 03:06 PM
the prob is the file named "game Manual.pdf" in my dvd is "Game_Man.pdf" how can i change the name of it?

05-21-2006, 03:40 PM
Try kidnapping your friends wife and put her somewhere in your house(your friend will never look for her in your house, you're his friend). Make sure to feed her so she wont die(that wouldn't be very nice). When your friend embarcs on a heroic search for his wife, offer to take care of his house(and guard it from the kidnappers).
Then you can play HommV all day on his computer and he will even thank you for it(but do NOT forget to feed the wife now and then!).
Problem solved.
Thank you, I know I'm incredible. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

now really how the f*** can i change it , or what's wrong on my pc that changes the freaking name of that file , all other ppl read it without prob , its just my uglo pc that doesnt let me play this game , even stops at 1% installation lol

05-21-2006, 04:08 PM
does it let you select the pdf file from any location?

if so, make a new file and just call it manual.pdf and select it from your desktop or something.

05-21-2006, 04:28 PM
it lets me choose from anywhere but even say the same , asking me for insert the correct cd or check again the file route

05-21-2006, 04:35 PM
Ok since there is no other way(then replacing the disc) do this:
Go to your dvd-rom letter, right click it, press exlpore and there select all folders and files (using mouse or ctrl+a) then copy all to a place on your hard drive that has enough space.
After that download this:
and replace it with the one in the files that you copied from the cd (there should be a game_manual.pdf around there.
After that run setup.exe
The game should install now. If you can't copy this file from the dvd just copy the others.


05-21-2006, 05:23 PM
weird, really weird , first at all THX dude, it worked for the prob, but another prob again... :*** when i try to play it says error cant find a freaky file.... reinstallation should repair it ,i uninstall , then try to install again and the Game Manual prob appears again lol

05-21-2006, 05:29 PM
Did any error apear during the setup? That you had to press ignore to go away?

05-21-2006, 05:29 PM
well changing something it seems to found the file, but says it's not the same file that comes inside the .cab file...:***

05-21-2006, 05:31 PM
again the same error! . it doesnt find d3dx9_25.dll reinstallation should solve the probem

05-21-2006, 05:53 PM
d3dx9_25.dll is a directx problem. Install the directx that is on the dvd.

05-21-2006, 05:56 PM
i did =( i'm cheking inside the dvd vere is that file, but i installed directx9 the one that comes on the dvd

05-21-2006, 06:01 PM
You have windows service pack 2?

05-21-2006, 06:10 PM

05-21-2006, 06:24 PM
just readed something about a patch... it will work on this ****ty message? or just a fake

05-21-2006, 06:27 PM
It depends on what kind of sp2 you have :|... cause there is one cracked version that you can't install direct9.0c on cause the win know s you already have it but you don't. If you have a ok win version then it's something else.

05-21-2006, 06:30 PM
so how can i check if its an ok version, or vere should i dl it? . lol man ure my god

05-22-2006, 02:32 PM
Try this:
It should work over any sp.

05-24-2006, 11:54 AM
lol now not sad , just SICK , today hommV was available for buy here , just buyed my original hommV , installation was ok , but wtf , CANT PLAY!!!!!!! , crashes to windows =( why i'm so damned

05-24-2006, 12:30 PM
you still getting the directx error when it crashes or something else? have you updated your graphics drivers?

Might be something wrong with the actual disk, it works on another computer? If not, try going to the shop and get it replaced.

05-24-2006, 02:02 PM
What video card you have?

05-24-2006, 03:27 PM
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440

05-24-2006, 07:36 PM
3d-analyze will help on the card problem?

05-24-2006, 08:04 PM
lol guess wont

06-20-2006, 11:01 AM
Aight heres what to do. I had same problem on an emulated version. I explored the install disk and copied everything to a folder on my desktop. Then I went into the folder where the Game Man.pdf is. Now my install asked for it to be written like Game Manual.pdf exactly so i renamed it to that and away my install went the next time. Just so you know the reason you have to copy all files to that folder is because you cant rename a disk file. So copy over. Rename file and INSTALL GAME FROM FOLDER with setup.exe(etc.)

There you go. Good luck. Should be a sinch.

First you read the system requirments and then buy the game. Sorry to say this but you cant play it with that video card especially not if you have 64mb of video card memory.

06-20-2006, 04:28 PM
Thx Fock but dunno if was the same day or maybe the next one , when i posted it and looked thro this forum found an exe file that some1 posted, thx to ppl of this forum i was able to play it.
"First you read the system requirments and then buy the game. Sorry to say this but you cant play it with that video card especially not if you have 64mb of video card memory." wtf r u saying man? I Buyed the spanish cheapy version (50$ r heavy for me, so taked the cheaper) on back of the box it says 64mb allowed (prefer 128) and nowhere shows the video card that have probs with the game , inside reading manual they r shown (included my one) so what the **** should i do with the opened game? go to a cash converter or something-like and sell it for 3"???? Blaspheme action!
