Major error on XP
I spend ages buying all the Dark Forces and jedi knight game on various trading and games shops. I win Dark Forces and install Dark Forces 2.


It's weird. It worked fine at first, except the movies which were a bit pixelated (?) and when I saved the game crashed and asked to send an error report. But I lived round that because the saves were fine when I loaded up. Now none of my saves work and it won't let me start a new game! Please help, I ***need*** to play outcast.

Install the latest Direct X versions and see if there are any codecs, drivers or the likes on the CD that you need to install. Scourge the internet for people with similar problems and see what they cooked up.

playxp 10-22-2007 03:13 PM

Already have checked for other problems like this. Most people say upgrade to vista.

Thanks for direct X advice. will try later.

ok go here....

and look for the unoffical patch and install it

this will fix the windows error report

playxp 10-24-2007 03:30 AM

Ok will try that thanks.

P.S. I love the way there always seems to be some guy who makes an XP patch.

playxp 10-24-2007 04:41 AM

The unofficial patch worked brilliantly. I can save and it doesn't crash now thanks. Still have problem with parts of the videos appearing black though.
Thanks for the patch

JKLE_Cougar 10-24-2007 02:30 PM

playxp 10-24-2007 03:23 PM

JKLE_Cougar 10-24-2007 08:22 PM

playxp 10-25-2007 03:44 PM

One last question, what is #jkhub channel?!

JKLE_Cougar 10-26-2007 10:52 AM

download and irc chat program like MIRC

then connect to ZIRC

once its connected a window will pop up and type in #jkhub

and youll be able to chat to all the jkhub peeps :)

playxp 10-28-2007 04:40 PM

playxp 10-28-2007 04:47 PM

There was no one on #jkhub. Think software was working fine.

JKLE_Cougar 10-28-2007 08:08 PM

playxp 10-29-2007 03:09 PM

Ok, so how do I get onto it now? I'm a n00b in the chat room respect.

JKLE_Cougar 10-29-2007 04:48 PM

and you should be all set :)

playxp 10-29-2007 10:22 PM

JKLE_Cougar 10-29-2007 10:57 PM

playxp 11-03-2007 03:13 AM

JKLE_Cougar 11-03-2007 10:43 AM

playxp 11-04-2007 05:30 PM

Yeah Gandalf is me. I'm in the pacific time zone. so probably the complete Opposite of everyone on #jkhub!

playxp 11-20-2007 02:52 PM
