Renowned explorers will not launch on gog galaxy

Post by Ratamoket » Thu Sep 10, 2015 2:43 pm

I bought renowned explorers via gog.com and the game will not launch, say version #163.

Please advise

Thanks

EDIT: game has not updated to #179 but still not launching!!

Does the game give you any errors at all?
Can you run the game outside of GOG Galaxy?
What OS are you running and system specs?

Need some more info to try and help you mate.

no error, literally nothings happens.

tried on a Surface Pro 3 running windows 10 64 bit and my main desktop again running windows 10....in the end i bit the bullet and got the game via steam and guess what...no issues, been playing for the last 2 hours....

First time trying gog.com...probably last time also

Sound like a Galaxy issue to me, one reason I don't like clients like Steam, Origion or Galaxy, it justs adds something more to go wrong.

Glad its working for ya now mate. Enjoy

Hey Ratamoket!

By any chance do you still have the Galaxy version lying around? There are a lot of people with the same issue due to a bug in the Galaxy client. If you still have it installed could you post the abbeycore.txt in the game folder? That will help us solve the problem.

Cheers!

You don't need to use Galaxy. On GoG, you can always also just download the DRM-free version of the game.

Note that some people got the game to run by simply uninstalling Galaxy, but others have problems even without using Galaxy, see here:
