Welcome to the F.A.P topic (Frequently Asked Problems) [What a bad joke]
I am trying to do a summary of the known issues that occurred since the patch 188.8.131.52 on Reus.
I recommend you to install the game through Steam as most people will play on this platform !
The list may not be full and may not be updated daily, so be sure to check the last edit !
Verify game cache if you are on Steam [ Right click on game> Properties> Local Files> Verify ... ]
Install latest drivers for your computer
Game not starting ?
- Run everything you can in administrator mod
(Steam, game, installation programs (who are about the game, ofc !)
- Check that the Visual Studio 2010 (x86 or x64) redist is installed and try removing previous versions.
- Have this installled XNA 4.0 Refresh
Make sure you install the XNA framework with your own user account.
If you have an older version of XNA and the game is not working, uninstall the old version
Make sure to update your video codec, K-Lite is great for that, you can download it here.
Game not starting and you have other games (like Terraria) not working too ?
Here's a guide that will help you fix this s**t up !
Game won't start - AudioException ?
- This usually happens when there is no audio device active on the computer. Check your default playback device.
You are on a laptop and can't run the game because your computer does not fit the requirements ?M4st3rM1nd wrote:Not really a big solution but if you could try to run in windowed mode. This means you don't really have to alt-tab out of the game.
- Check if your laptop has two video modes.
One may be the default "graphic card" provided by the constructor.
The second may be your better "graphic card". DxDiag picks up the Intel chip by default.
Try make Reus working by right-clicking on it and choosing 'Run with graphics processor -> High-performance (or something like that) video card'.hugorune wrote:I would suspect other laptops with 3D graphics chips may need something similar.
- If you see this first line in the error report :
Code: Select all
System.InvalidOperationException: Error decompressing content data.Bas wrote:This can only be an issue with the file that is being loaded. The file is loaded corruptly meaning that either the file is corrupt (likely) or there is something wrong with your hardrive. Try reinstalling the game (on another hard drive if reinstall is not working).
Problems patching through GoG.COM ?
It is a topic about a problem when patching !
I am too lazy to sum it up, sorry.
Be sure to report every bug you encounter !
None of this worked ?
Create a new topic and attach save game located in "My documents>Reus>saves"
If the game crashed, check the steam install directory :
For a non-Steam install it should be in your installation folder
And copy past the error report it created.
No Error Report created from your bug ?
Check your windows event log by typing Event Viewer into the start menu and look for the applications log.
If something went wrong with starting up Reus (likely) it will be logged there.
Then copy/paste the error reported !
BE CONCISE !
