Dungeon Siege will not work..

Post by Dan » Mon, 03 May 2004 00:42:05


Made a post yesterday, did a little more work on it and
found some strange things. Wanted to point them out to
see what people think.

Went to wear the DSLOA install was, and worked on
changing the compatibity options(only in XP i think).
When I tried to force it to run a 640x480, the game would
almost start up, I would get a black screen and then it
would close it. It did the same thing for all OS
compatibilities I chose. Except for NT, 95, and 98. I
would almost get into the game cept for some wierd error
would show up. %MS_MSGBOXTextMSIDNOTVALID% would pop up,
if I say ok it would keep popping up. If I say cancel
DSLOA would quit.
Any ideas?

Hi Dan,

That's an extremely unusual error message.
Scan your system for any viruses, and repair Windows
afterwards by reinstalling it over itself. I hope that works. :-)

click on properties of each game and run the
compatibility wizard in windows 98. I was having the same
problem and they both work fine now, but anything else I
tried didn't work with XP.
