Q: Downloaded game

hi, i was wondering if you would be able to help me,

i recently downloaded freelancer off of bittorrent (I heard that if you already bought the game it's fine to download, but my disc got scratched)

In the folder the two kinds of filed are the larger .IMG file and the smaller .SUB file.

I am absolutely clueless on how to actually play the game!!
any help would be extremely appreciate it!

I downloaded a game called the curse of monkey island through a torrent.

i already own the game, but it was scratched.

Once i finished downloading it, It was of course in image file, so i ran it through daemon tools. Autorun worked and everything, but when i clicked on install the clock showed next to the mouse for a few seconds then it stopped and nothing happened.

Then i went into the main folder and clicked setup.exe and ran as administrator.. again nothing hapened.. Ive tried burning it to a disk too with no luck.

A:Cant Run A Game I Downloaded.

This game was released in '97. I doubt if it will even run on Vista. You can try compatibility mode

I bought and downloaded Cake Mania 3 from last week. Once I started playing the game, the computer started freezing up. The next day, the computer was doing weird things, like making beeping sounds when booting up and not letting me select my account on the welcome screen, then it started loading things randomly and repeatedly. So I started virus scanning, I used 4 different scans and nothing was found, except some cookies. I then uninstalled Cake Mania, but that didn't help. So I tried a system restore, no luck. Then I finally did a system recovery. I thought that would fix whatever was wrong because that reformats the hard drive. After I did the recovery, all the things the computer was doing before, are still going on. I know the computer was infected, but now that I did a recovery, I don't know what else to do to fix the computer. Any help will sure be appreciated!!

For some reason all the games I download onto my laptop do not work. After downloading then installing any game it always end up saying something like "cannot connect to server" and I checked with my friend to see if he had the same problem but it was just me. This completely makes my laptop useless, and I checked the system requirements and the site it self to see if there were any maintenance going on for all the games and everything was okay.I'm almost certain it is not the games but some setting on my laptop I am unaware of.

I have recently installed a couple of games downloaded from Bigfish. They install OK as far as I know ie everything is there after installation. But as soon as I try to run the games I get the message "Gamename.exe has stopped working..... Windows is searching for a solution etc., etc" Windows, of course, never finds a solution so, I was wondering if anyone can help with this problem.

Thanks in advance

A:Downloaded game problems

1. Click on the Start Orb and then click on Control Panel. (All steps have screenshots below and you can click on any screenshot to enlarge it.)

2. Double click on "Problem Reports and Solutions".

3. Click "See Problems to Check" on the left hand pane. (N.B. Your window will not look exactely the same as mine)

4. Under BigFish, click "More Details". I do not have a BigFish game in my list, so substitute my Installer for your BigFish game .

5. Copy everything in the red box on MY screenshot and paste it into a reply to this thread. Alternatively you could make a screengrab of the whole window and reply with that instead.

How to take a screengrab: How to Use the Snipping Tool in Vista

6. Click "OK".

7. Check "Select All" and "Check again for solutions to other problems" then click "Check for Solutions". If any new solutions are found, particularly for SetupLauncher, open them up and see what they say.

Have you tried running the games in Compatibility mode? Thanks,

Once you found it you can right click on it to pin it.

Lets try a general cleanup first

Go to Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, delete offline content. Also, clear the History.

Content tab, under AutoComplete, clear Forms and Passwords.

Advanced tab, under Browsing, look for Enable Insta on Demand. Untick.
Under Security, look for Empty Tempory Internet... Tick.
Apply and OK

Go to Find Files and type in cookie. When found, open the folder, and delete all the cookies found. You won't be able to delete the .dat file found.

For this, go here and get the Spider:

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Also, go here and download AddAware

Download and run, ensuring that Deep Registry scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

Also, whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates. Just click Connect.

Also, what is the full error message that you're getting, and when do you get it? On logging in, or playing a game.. etc?

I have disc one and disc two with the bin and cue files. I proceeded to burn them onto CDs and I am able to install the game on my computer. The problem I am having is the anticopy protection. It is protected with safedisc V2 and I have no idea how to bypass it. when I insert the burnt copy it says "please insert correct disc" and it is very irritating. I have an Iomega 650 ITAPI CDRW drive and from what I am told is that a Liteon CDRW is the easiest to use when it comes to burning exact copies of games with the anticopy protection and all, but unfortunately I don't have this luxury. What I wish to accomplish is to run the game how it would normally work if I had the original CD's of the game (preferrably running from the CD-rom drive not from the harddrive). I don't want a "NOCD" crack because I want to run it from the CD, I just need to know how to delete or disable the anticopy protection. Can someone please help me? Thanks in advance!

first of all is this limited to this game alone?do other games run fine?check for any overheating signs,install the latest drivers for your video card and your mobo,direct x and any other update.see if you meet the minimum requirements for the game.(this was just the official response you would get from a bear with me)

if this is happening in this game only and not in any other and your pc isnt overheating and meeting the minimum requirements,then there is a good chance its an issue with your optical drive,try a combo drive if you've got any around.its an incompatibility issue with some of the games.good luck

Hi, I am new on this forum and I hope someone can help me out.

Every time I play a game at start it runs great.. then after 15-20 minutes everything gets slower and slower, I mean really slow. Movement and sounds are going slower and slower when time progresses. I have updated my sound drivers, updated my DirectX. It's like something eats up my ram or my soundcard is causing it. And when everything gets slow I quit the game and windows is then also very very slow. And sometimes my soundcard crashes, giving a loud beep sound. It's driving me NUTS.

So I play some games that have some redundant grinding and instead of having to man the computer to grind the virtual materials such as metal in this case to craft gear and weapons on a Facebook Flash Game that is designed to be hours of farming materials daily to craft, I generally study the gameplay and look for redundant patterns in the game that can be automated and then code up a macro to have the computer farm the materials for me so that when i am actually playing the game I can just enjoy having the needed materials and play for like 20 minutes of the actual 4 hours of game play that is non grinding to make decisions and perform non redundant processes.I coded up a macro this morning and had it triggered to start by a batch file which would give me 10 seconds after launching the batch from desktop to make sure that the browser window was brought back into position maximized and my fingers away from mouse and keyboard before it would run.My flaw in my batch file was that I thought that it would wait until the macro instance ended before going to the goto routine that would run the 10 second time delay and run the macro over again and this time the browser is already maximized and the game is back at the starting point to run the same tasks of grinding for materials over and over again.I walked away from the computer to get a water bottle and when i came back to the computer the mouse pointer was going crazy. At first I thought the macro was glitched. But when I brought... Read more

So recently Windows 8 killed my hard drive so I had to switch over to Windows 7 on a new hard drive. Everything seems in order however when I try to play certain games I seemingly can't connect to various servers.

Games and the problems I receive
Armored Warfare: Failed to connect to Authorization server
Ark Survival Evolved: No servers appear in server browser, attempts to connect through steam directly fail
Verdun: Failed to connect to server
Smite: Failed to connect to Hi-Rez Authorization server
Mech Warrior Online: Game seems to believe its servers are under maintenance despite them being active

I am unable to play any of these games however I am able to connect to and play other online games without a problem. These include World of Tanks, World of Warships, Red Orchestra, Mount and Blade, Depth, League of Legends and War thunder.

To fix my problem I have tried to:
Turn off all anti virus programs
Turn off all firewalls
Tried using two different internet providers via two different modems in two different locations
Reset Internet options
<I am using a wired connection>

I have literally no clue how to fix this and I've tried contacting these game's support teams and communities for assistance however they have been less than useful.

A:Can't connect to certain game's servers? (Multi-game problem)

Even after you disable firewalls they may still be running in the background. From personal experience I know that certain firewalls, like windows defender, would stay on even after I disabled them. If uninstalling the firewalls isn't an option you might want to add your games as an exception.

Mind telling me which anti-virus programs you have/firewalls you have?

You also might want to open up certain ports for the game servers. If I'm not mistaken the ports are different for different games so you'll have to google that.

For example War Thunder uses the following:
The following ports required to be opened for the game:

TCP 80, 443, 5222, 7850-7854(range), 7800-7802(range)
UDP 20010-20500(range), 3478-3480(range)

In order to play a dev-version you also have to open the following ports:

TCP 20443, 33333
Launcher uses the following ports:

TCP 27022-27042(range), 6881, 8090

About 3-4 months ago, my uncle placed a GeForce 9500GT video card. It worked nice for games like Dekaron,Rappelz,Oblivion but just about a week ago it crashed on COD2. I thought it was normal but it happened on Left 4 dead too. I started to get worried and thought it was normal but then it kept on crashing on Portal(1st stage, at around 20-30 seconds on the timer) and almost any game i borrow from my friends. It crashed on Warcraft 3, Overlord, Drift City(only in Undercity Mission). Im kinda worried now maybe you guys can help me.

It crashes and sometimes the sound loops but sometimes it doesnt. Im not sure if it's only the monitor because some of my games cant be shut by using ALT F4 and i cant check if it shuts down well. When i unplug,plug and turn it on, there are no warnings or things that say it recovered from an error.It just starts normally. Some people say i have to upgrade my Video card driver but im worried because when i installed a driver on my Laptop , i couldnt turn it on. SO WHAT DO I DO?

I have an ongoing issue where I log onto the glyph launcher, log onto my server, play for a while, sometimes hours with no issue but then BOOM, the game just closes on me and I'm booted back to the launcher. I have to push the PLAY button again, log into the server again, but it seems once the game boots me out then the crashing becomes more frequent.

I at first reported it to Trion support (useless) all they do is copy and paste previous responses from previous games sometimes not even removing the other game titles from it, but all in all I have spent over a month with them and I have:

1. Expanded my paging file to initial size of 1X RAM size max size 2X RAM size (to handle the memory of the game)
2. Switched from DirectX11 down to DirectX9 and back again. (in game)
3. Lowered my FPS (frames per second) to 100 (in game)
4. Switched off Multithread rendering and VSync (in game)
5. They have also had me change the priority of the game archeage.exe to high to see if that helps and it doesn't
( I would start the launcher, log onto the game and the server, go into the character screen, then cntrl + alt + delete into task manager and right click the process and set the priority to high then go back into the game)

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I've been haveing some trouble with either game crashes or full bluescreen (error 101).
I WAS useing twin GeForce 9600GTs in SLI, I recently upgraded to a HD 7870.
The problem did not change, suggesting that video drivers are not the source... Although altering the drivers with the 9600GTs did seem to effect if the game crashed or full bluescreen crash.
So basicly, the PC works fine untill I play a game (high end and/or minecraft... simple games do not trigger it) at that point, you are on borrowed time. Around 15-120 min. into gameplay, either the game will crash (fatal error bug or no bug report) OR the PC will freeze briefly followed by a blue screen BCCode 101. (Windows 7 64)

I did a simple RAM check, but I did not leave it running for long. I have 3 sticks of 2GB in there, and haveing removed one at a time did not effect the problem. (IE: I took out each stick, leaveing 2 in for a quick and easy method to find a possable faulty RAM chip).

Thus far, it would seem that the CPU in at haveing timeing issues with a core.
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6400+ 3.2 GHz

Could it be overheating? Everything seems to work fine untill I start a game, then it crashes out roughly 30 min into playing. I'm consitering removeing the heat sink, reapplying the thermal paste, and checking if that has any effect. This much I am qualified to do; but is there a way to monitor processor heat levels durring gameplay (I'm sure standard bios heat checks would not show problems). ... Read more

It seems something is going wrong with my GPU or one of the drivers. I feel like it's most likely hardware failure, due to extreme treatment of my laptop. What happens is the whole screen kind of just gets chopped up into squares (sometimes the patterns vary. Sometimes, it's not even a ****ing pattern, just a ****ed up screen) with different colors. It then crashes and attempts to restart but you can't even read the BSOD because the screen is so messed up. Then it will reboot itself but the screen is screwed and if you attempt to run 'windows normally', it will crash and reboot in an endless cycle. I have to start in safe mode, in which there are a bunch of nasty lines that start from left to right on the screen. I can still use the laptop but over time the screens disappear and the screen finally goes back to normal. After this, I can reboot into normal mode. Help!!

I've been trying to install Game Pad Pro on win 2000 but haven't had any luck so far.

I'm installed the drivers, and realized that the OS doesnt' know there's a new hardware device.

In 'Device Manager', under 'Sound, video and game controllers', there's no mention of a game port device, all it has is my tv tuner card, audio and video codecs'.

I've clicked on 'scan for hardware changes' and nothing changed. How do I fix the problem? How do I check to see if any of the other devices are interupting with the game port?

Thanks in advance.

You may have a dead port.
First off try removing all of your USB Hubs and Controllers in Device Manager and restarting.
Then see if it will recognize it.
If not try a different USB port (preferably one in the back on your motherboard)

If it's a serial port, go into the properties of the COM port in Device Manager and make sure your flow control (under Port Settings) is set to Hardware and baud is set to 9600. Also if it's serial you may need to check or uncheck your FIFO buffers under the advanced tab

every time we do some action game ,fight etc...the commands are send to processor which in turn decides what to do by checking the command with the already given one's....for eg. if i click the save button,the processor reads the command,checks it in game's directory which tells it to save the input data in a new file ,and then it saves the data in a new this how game works...please answer....

Hi everyone,
I've been looking for a fix for ages now, but all forum threads I found were talking about the Game DVR recording no audio at all, while I can hear my microphone, but nothing else I've tried changing the audio quality, restarting my pc and even recording different games, but there was no game audio to be heard anywhere. If you have any ideas how to fix this I'd be very grateful!


A:Game DVR not recording game audio

What do you see in settings > audio?
This bit below is not exactly what you are asking for, but may be a better solution to your problem.
Do you have an AMD or Nvidia GPU? If so, I personally recommend using the built in recorders that they have. I have a GTX 760 and whenever and wherever I press alt+z I can bring up an overlay that allows me to start recording or streaming. It can also easily be set up to stay active in the background and if something cool happens when you weren't recording you can have it save the last 'x' minutes of video (where 'x' is the amount you set in the options). It can also record anything else on your PC, not just games.

A:check game lag for certain game

Your system does meet the recommened requirements for the game so your good there. If you have a lot of software running on your PC such as updaters, Antivirus, messengers, HP software, etc it can tax your system and lower it's performance. You can check your device manager to see what you have running in the background. In XP you should see 40 or so, in Vista or Windows 7 it can be closer to 60. My next question is what's your basis for saying it loads slow? Have you seen it run faster on other computers? I also have the game and I think it does load slower then I would expect it to but otherwise it runs fine. Something you can try is turning down the graphics options or disabling things like the crowd. If it is indeed lagging on your PC this will speed up the load times. If it doesn't then your likely not having an issue.

system running : windows XP professional with sp3

okay, as the title implies, while surfing the internet a tab appeared in the firefox window that said "Updating..." but never showed/displayed anything. After that, I noticed the windows start/tool bar had changed from the XP theme version to the classic version. Then i noticed that there was no network connectivity. When I tried to look up what was wrong, the properties, rename, and delete options have been disabled from the right-click menu.
I received a message that there was attempt to update registry but whatever was done was restored, then my PC reboot.
what I've done so far:
I tried to boot using the windows xp CD but nothing happens. Windows eventually boots up, but I don't get any options to run repair or anything.
Used CA anti-virus for scan and found nothing (did this again in safe mode and still found nothing)
I did a search to see if I could find what was modified, it shows that all user accounts including a Helpassist?? account have been updated in some form or fashion so i don't know what else to do

I see svchost.exe, services.exe, and system taking up 50% of CPU occasionally but not sure what to make of that.

to get the internet started I tried to turn on some network services but all failed due to 'timeout'

Please let me know any ideas, or how to get started on trying to fix this problem.

other pcs are connected to the internet just fine.

Hello. I downloaded the new sp3 update yesterday and followed all the instructions and i was ready to restart my computer. When i did, everything went fine until after the loading screen it gave me a blue error screen. Since i needed the computer in working order, I used a pc recovery tool (pressed F10 when it started up) and did a non-destructive recovery which took about 20 minutes. Then after that was done i had to restart and do the windows first start up thing. Then i finally finished and saw that all of my custom features and files were no where to be found! All my applications and games that i downloaded are still in shape, but all of the custom features (like background, WMP playlists, Updates) were all gone. so is there any whay which i can restore my old settings? I need to have all my original settings as soon as i can please .


A:I really need help, downloaded SP3...

Hi cloud366, it sounds like you have done a repair install. When you pressed F10, did you choose Last Known Good Configuration from the boot menu?

Also, check in C:\Documents and Settings for a duplicate profile. It could be that your original profile has corrupted and Windows built you a new one.

All those type of "custom features" live in your local profile.

I was working trying to fix my DVDFab express tonight, and I was using a keygenerator... bad I know... but anyways, I ended up downloading and installing something that made my desktop wallpaper go to white and flicker... THe program initiated a msdos looking window with an error message that asked me if I wanted to abort... I couldn't choose anything and had to reboot... that's when I found it had erased my wallpaper and I couldn't get it fixed.. i knew it was some kind of malicious program...

so i came to you guys and I have followed all your steps... My wallpaper is back and I think I have gotten rid of most stuf, but my computer is still running kind of weird, slow, just not the same....

A:Think I Downloaded Something, Help

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer I don't see any malware there.Some points:Do you have a bought license for Norton? Or did you get it for free? The reason I'm asking is, it's a really heavy app for an antivirus. You can install a better antivirus that's waaaay lighter and easier for the computer, and takes less ram and actually is more efficient too.So, I recommend uninstalling Symantec's products and installing AntiVir (That's the promotion license for AntiVir Premium -- 6 months for free. You can get their free edition here) or Avast! instead.Another valid point: when did you install Service Pack 3? There has been several flaws with it.. Some people have really bad problems with SP3, I seem to be one of the lucky ones with no issues. Did you notice the problems after installing it?Also have a read through THIS TOPIC.Finally.....Click Start >> Run and paste in:"%userprofile%\desktop\dss.exe" /daftClick OK.Click OK to the prompt from Deckard's System Scanner.Click Scan.Checkmark every entry found.Click Fix.Let me know how you get on.

32bit will only see 4gigs of ram and usually only be able to use abt 3.3 its also a bit slower depending on how you use it. when changing from one OS format (32bit) to another (64bit) it has to be a clean install.

Now about restoring you may have a backup there and available but since you are 32 bit and it isnt you cant use it. If you were to reinstall vista 64 it probably be available

Hi everyone - hope this is posted in the right area

I am trying to download a file from this page -

when I click on the blue text of my choice, a box pops up asking me whether I want to open it from its present location or save it to disk. If I choose open it, a box comes up showing the download in process - at the end, I get a WinZip box, which says that this is an 'evaluation copy' and asks me what I want to do - agree to the evaluation conditions, quit, or get ordering info. I click agree, and I get a Winzip Wizard. I start trying to click my way through this process - I get screens like - 'Would you like to Unzip or Install from optr_por[1].zip' (I say yes) and then "Click now to unzip to selected folder, C:/unzipped/optf_por[1]. I say yes - a box comes up which says the files have been successfully unzipped to this location, and then a Windows Folder called TEMP pops up with an file inside it - the file is a Winzip icon, and seems to be the file I have just downloaded - it is called "optf por"....

Seems good so far. Then I click on it, hoping to see the document I have attempted to download. But I get a small box that says 'WinZip self extractor' at the top, and which says 'To Unzip all files in optf_por.exe to the specified folder, press the unzip button'. The specified folder is C:/WINNT/TEMP. I press Unzip and... a tiny box comes up which shows the p... Read more

A:where is my downloaded file?

It can be confusing trying to keep track of where downloaded programs unzip to especially using winzip. I think your first step should be to clean out the default folder winnt temp. I don't believe there is anything needed there but just to be on the safe side don't delete anything from the recycle bin until you're sure you can reboot and run programs without error messages. Next instead of letting the program run itself without installing on your hard drive create a new floder on the C drive tree or whatever your hard drive letter is and save it to that folder (save to disk, browse, choose that folder C:temp that you created.) That way if it unzips to the winnt folder it should be the only program in there, plus you have the original download on your computer so you won't have to keep downloading each time . As to what program to use to open the file that depends on what kind of program it is. Good luck
