Game crashes when I select Single Player Game.
« on: Jun 05, 2018; 02:50 PM »
I downloaded the game.

Updated to the latest version.


Logged in on single player and multiplayer.


Installed the SP and MP patch.

Installed the revival launcher.

Installed the revival mod.

Not sure what I am missing here.

Okay I re-ran the game after doing the patches.

but now I just get a black screen on launch. T_T

I remember one case with completely black screen at start.
In the end it was discovered, that it was a error while downloading MP patch - the patch was corrupted.
Unfortunately, i also remember a few cases where the cause could not be traced...
 :(

Try something for me:

Start the game (to a black screen)

press escape twice then enter twice (not too quickly together, do, say, a count of three seconds between presses)

With luck you should arrive at a fully viewable character setup or selection screen.

For some weird reason, all of my Revival mod installs - even from a new vanilla HGL + proper patches have this start up to black screen issue.

It doesn't bother me now that i've worked out it's all still running OK, just escape the film and enter past the start page to the char screen.

If that fails then I'd suggest going back to vanilla HGL and grabbing the patches again.

Install game.  start it (go to the character select screen then exit)
Patch MP - start game as above
patch SP - start game as above

****>  I am unsure if it matters the order there - MP forst or SP first...

the you should be OK to install the mod.

Note that it still might start to the black screen but it should be to the "playable version" after the escape + enter.

With all respect to Revival designers.... it doesn't happen with Nagahaku or Lost London.
Different files edited and changed, maybe... all it'd take is one byte of from where it expects the films to be or something.
