I get the dreaded BSOD now. I followed the instructions in the stickied thread, 'Beating The Black Screen Of Death' but the Dos Prompt doesnt appear. Can anyone help me?

Can you get a console report? Press the ` key when in testmode, grab a screenshot of whats going on.

(to get into testmode add "C:\Program Files (x86)\Activision\BPNANOFX2\stbc.exe" -TestMode to your program shortcut just incase ;) )

I cant get anything except the black screen with a yellow cursor. I do the Alt+Tab thing mentioned in the sticky but then its just a black screen with absolutly nothing else on it.

yeah - but it is possible to open the console from that window. :)

You *need* to be in TestMode tho - then you press the ' ` ' key followed by enter.

I did all that but it still didnt work. UPDATE: I think i may have found the problem, its the Foundation that comes with BCMI.NET. :confused: Foundation is supposed to make installing mods easier however it seems to refuse to work with my game now for some reason. Everytime i install it i get the BSOD but when I un-install it the game works fine again. What the heck is going on?

Let's try to make this simple and let more painfull! 1. Make a shortcut to the BC.exe then in the end of the shortcut add -TestMode so that you can open up the console 2. Open up the console and press enter to get a console print out 3. Use print screen to save the image 4. To exit BSOD image input this into the console: import sys sys.exit() This will exit the game 5. Open up notepad and paste the image you took with the print screen, save it as a jpg and post it here so we can get a better idea of what's happening to your game!
