Could not go to the character selection screen
« on: Oct 14, 2009; 01:38 PM »
I've recently had a problem with my HGL: FMOD_Memory_Initialize entry point not found in my HGL fmodex.dll directory.


I downloaded some filed named fmodex.dll 40804 and i replaced my one with it.



It worked fine, until i pressed the single player mode and it just stays at the loading screen.


The rift seemed to be moving, but it's taking sooo long. Anyone knows why is it so?

Something about that file missing (and the one replacing it, not compatible);
Best to do a new install.

Note: your characters should still be okay.

I've tried reinstalling three times already, it's still giving me the problem of that FMOD thingy.


Here's what i've done:


Install HGL

Run the game and exit

Patch the game with SP 1.2

Run the game again (This is when the FMOD_Memory_Initialize Entry Point Not Found Thingy appeared)




EDIT: Actually, i'm using a *cough illegal cough* way of getting a copy of HGL.


After some retries, i found out that my crack caused the FMOD_Memory_Initialize Entry point not found to appear.


Is there any more solutions to this?

Sometimes when something like that occurs for me I manually delete everything in the HG folder before uninstalling. Unless the problem is with your disk this should solve the issue.(I would imagine)

I did that too. Still can't work.


Anyway, directing back to my above post,

Seems to me that the solution is obvious; don't use this:

it might just be easier to purchase a used copy of the game.  I know you can go to Half.com and purchase a copy for less than 5 (US) you can also find them on amazon.com for about the same.
I do not know where you are from, so this may be more difficult for you than it would for someone i the US.

Not familiar with the version of hgl you aquired, but it seems it was incompleate of faulty.

Seriously, $5USD for a legit copy would be the best route to go here. This way you know you are getting a clean install and it's not going to cost all that much. I'd say the time you've already spent trying to fix this is worth  more than the 5 dollars it would cost to get rid of your headache :P
