  1. Alright, so I've started up a new playthrough for my YouTube channel, this time being the PC port of Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire. Back in March of this year, I recorded this video showing off a soft-lock that I'd never encountered before in my nearly 20 years of playing this game. As shown in the video and listed in the description, I fought Boba Fett as normal for the first phase but when that phase was over and the fight against the Slave 1 was supposed to happen, the craft lifts out of the hangar and just gets stuck in the middle of the arena, it doesn't even attempt to fire back at
  2. UPDATE: I figured out the problem: Turns out that the game really didn't like the fact that I had accidentally mixed up my default and communications audio devices and that somehow broke the whole application. Hopefully I can now finally lay this thread to rest. If you've read any of these last two posts, feel free not to reply, because I shouldn't have gotten so bent out of shape so quickly.
  3. REOPENED YET AGAIN. Have been recording footage of this game for my YouTube channel without issue for four weeks straight, went to start recording the LAST VIDEO today and suddenly the application booted with no audio and then just wouldn't boot again, all with no explanation. I didn't change literally anything from the last time I booted the game to today, and now it won't launch regardless of what I do, I've followed these guidelines again and they don't work anymore. Another strike against this game, it BREAKS FOR NO REASON and DOES WHATEVER IT WANTS WHENEVER IT WANTS TO. I've u
  4. @idk@KyleStilkey@mrpenguinb I actually solved this issue by following the instructions given in by penguin: I did a clean installation of the game onto a different drive and kept it strictly out of the Program Files directories. When the game ran for the first time, I also turned off my other two monitors as to not confuse the application. The game now works fine along with the proper frame limit and dgVoodoo fixes listed in the PC Gaming Wiki page for this game. Will update to solved.
  5. Update: It seems that something to do with using dgVoodoo breaks the game. I reinstalled it to my C drive this time and it booted, but as soon as I tried applying the dgVoodoo files the game simply doesn't load and then it's bricked until you reinstall it. Addendum: This game does crap that makes no sense. 1. I uninstalled the game via deleting the files and having control panel remove the program from the program list, reinstalled the game and it launched with no issues. That's when I tried applying the dgVoodoo files, which broke the game. 2. I uninstalled that in
  6. @mrpenguinb I am currently running an Intel Core i9-10850K with an Nvidia RTX 2070, running the latest version of Windows 10 Pro. I've had the same GPU for several years, but the CPU is just about a week old now, game worked perfectly fine before changing my CPU.
  7. Alright, so I originally posted an inquiry with the exact same name about nine months ago, all the way back in January, here is a link to the original discussion: A lot has happened since I originally posted this topic, however, the biggest thing is that I've done several upgrades on my main system, including replacing the motherboard and CPU wholesale. I was planning on capturing footage of this game for my YouTube channel, but now I've hit this same brick wall yet again, except this time, nothing I've done has solved the problem. I'm at a complete loss on this now, as
  8. @mrpenguinb Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, but I do now have the answers to your questions. First, my laptop's specifications are as follows: CPU: Intel Core i5 6300HQ @2.3GHz Memory: 12GB DDR4 Dual Channel @1064MHz Integrated Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 530 GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 940MX @2GB DDR3 Second, I actually tried applying dgVoodooo and nothing seems to have changed, the application is still just a black screen with the aforementioned effects occurring. The game is still technically running, as I was able to "start" it, or at least I presse
  9. @cloudhaacker @mrpenguinb Alright, I've elected to attempt installation on my laptop PC since last time, and I'm having some problems unique to this setup. First, while the game will copy or install, I start the game and the Capcom logo is missing the iv50 codec, so I installed and fixed that. However, the main problem is, without any modifications, there are no graphics present at all when I start the game, there's sound, but nothing else. A few seconds in, when the narrator gets to the quantum refractors line, the game skips to the Servbot walking sounds and then crashes. I can'
  10. @cloudhaacker After doing some more testing, I've pretty much decided that just running it in full screen with the original config file is sufficient enough, as I'm still able to tab out and record via OBS by going back in, so that's that for me. In any case, I appreciate everyone who has contributed to this thread. I might make an update to the initial post later including the simplified explanation of this setup process, as it worked when simply installing the game and going through the process didn't, at least for me. I may even have time to make my own video doing this setup my
  11. @cloudhaacker Alright, so I've applied everything, and it's all good so far, I'm just having a slight problem with getting the game to go into full screen, which it was doing by default with the original configuration file. I guess my game really just doesn't like the function keys too much because F8 also crashes the game when trying to full screen the application, other than that, everything should be okay, I just want to know if you've encountered this issue.
  12. @cloudhaacker Okay, so a combination of things just happened. One, I copied the files from the disc directly into a folder of their own, ran the game, and guess what? Without even needing to modify anything, the lighting seemed to work correctly and there was no aliasing. (Laughter of an insane man ensues). That's the good news, the "bad" news, if there is any at this point, is that pressing F7 still tries to window and crashes the game. So, at the risk of doing messing this up, I am going to backup this directory just in case. I'm not sure if copying the additional files from the d
  13. @cloudhaacker Thanks for this simplified explanation, this makes it a lot more clear, I'll see what I can do right now, actually. Shouldn't take very long to have an update.
  14. If I could make a final request before I go, it would be that someone makes a video, or at the very least, a series of screenshots of this setup being done, because the way the process is written still confuses me, and I'm not sure if I'm following along correctly or not. As I said, this process obviously works, because it's been proven, I just can't seem to figure out where I'm going wrong. I appreciate everyone's help.
  15. @mrpenguinb Sorry, still no dice, the program continues to crash upon pressing F7, no matter whether I have the game to 640x480 in compatibility or if I do it myself manually. I've turned off both other monitors, I have all of the files lined up as shown, I have "Passthrough to real DirectX" ticked. I still don't know if I'm doing something wrong or not, I have to be if it works for you both. I'm going to give up for the night, it's past midnight where I live.
