Re: Shivers 2 for XP/Vista

It is an older card, an ATI 9800 All-In-Wonder AGP. I am going to put together a new PC this summer, but I am stuck with this one for the time being. This is my first time with an ATI card. I must say that I have not been very happy with it. Interesting. My XP and Vista development machines both ha...

What kind of video card do you have?

Re: Shivers 2 for XP/Vista

Hi, Can you please double check that you installed the 20080601 release. Sometimes the browser cache will show an out of date webpage.

Re: Shivers 2 for XP/Vista

I see two problems... copyright and gameplay. The goal is game preservation. Including the CD-data would alienate the project from official Sierra related forums. Gameplay is an interesting question... I would argue that the "please insert disc 2" screen is part of the game play (it tells you that y...

Re: Shivers 2 for XP/Vista

Odd.

If the music starts then it suggests a problem initializing the Direct3D support.

Do you have DirectX 9c installed?

I have added an error dialog if Direct3D fails to initialize... it will be in the next release.
