awhile ago i installed BC on my Vista laptop. unfortunatley, i modded it a bit too much and it crashed. so i left it untouched for about a year, then uninstalled it a couple months ago when i needed the space for Left 4 Dead. today i tried to reinstall BC, which i did. But when i started up the game, i saw............nothing. There was just the black screen! (no gold cursor though?!) so i thought the game was just loading and left it to itself for and hour. when i came back, nothing had changed. anybody have an idea of whats going on an possibly a solution? note: i havnt modded this install of BC
thanks, cwag123321 :confused:
ok when you uninstalled BC you did delete the left over folders right??
I'd uninstall BC then delete the left over folders and start again with a clean 1.1 patched BC.
yes i did delete the left over folders. but the fresh 1.1 version of the game still crashed. now ive just found a way to still play the game, by starting it from the menu from the disc. but, i cant mod it that way. it seems that when the game is accessed through the shortcuts it wont work.:mad:
ya sure the shortcuts are pointing to the right directory??
also since this is a vista install you may have user rights issues.... try running it under admin...
so i just deactivated Vista's user authorization program, and it worked. (for some mysterious reason, it really has nothing to do with the game) but thanks for all your help.
actually it does, I don't have vista but it sounds like that is the feature that controls user rights, you could have also done what Neb suggested and given yourself admin privileges.
i am an admin already i dont share my computer with anybody. but oh well
