Windows 10 Unable to Start the game properly

Hi I just performed a fresh installation of Fallot 2 the GOG English version.

Tested - the original Fallout 2 works and starts fine.

I then installed (using Installer) Resurrection 1.5 but here are my observations:

Running the Configuration File:
- changing the resolution - does not work
- making the game windowed - does not work

When I start the fores.exe game starts, Initial Videos are shown including the Resurection one.
When the Main Menu opens up I can see the Power Armor MkII face and F-Res version in the bottom right corner.
When I click on New Game - I have the original Falloout 2 characters to select from , but after I take any of them, the intro Video starts and after it all I see is:
Grey screen with a Black Stripe at the bottom (where the interface suppose to be) and nothing else.
I can use Escape to go to Options (and this is where cursor shows up) and I can exit the game.


Please help me out to make this run.

I am running Windows 10 64 bit.

Re: Windows 10 Unable to Start the game properly

Hi! Try run the game/the configurator as an administrator.

Or if you have Fallout 2 installed in Program Files directory, try to install it somewhere else.

Tried to run every Exe file as Administrator - no success.

Game/Mod is installed on D:\Games\Fallout 2\Ressurection

Re: Windows 10 Unable to Start the game properly

There's a bug that HRP (the f2_res stuff) cannot set the window size and position according to the data saved in the INI in certain OSes. It happens on my Win2000 server and Win10 VM.

Re: Windows 10 Unable to Start the game properly

But it doesn't happen on regular Win 10.
Not exactly the same but similar problems encountered some players with too overzealous antivirus, like Avast with too strict settings.

Re: Windows 10 Unable to Start the game properly

When I turn off my Antivirus completely - the same results.

Tried installing the game and mod without antivirus running + running the Fores.exe with Admin right - still same results.

I read somewhere that when Fores starts (loads) properly that the Main Screen Power Armor MKII face is replaced by something else.
Maybe this is the clue here - that something is not loading properly ?
Maybe I should check something in ini files?


All my installation files:

Re: Windows 10 Unable to Start the game properly

When you run the configuration tool, make some changes and "Save and Quit", are your changes still there when you run it again?
Try to install DirectX 9 from this link: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... px?id=8109
After that, if your changes in the configuration tool are saved, try run Resurrection with various graphics mode settings.

Otherwise I'm running out of ideas how to help you :( Many people run Resurrection on Win 10 with GOG version without problems.

Re: Windows 10 Unable to Start the game properly

I understand.

But the issue I am having is not with the Graphics, but rather with loading up the Resurrection Files while launching the game.
Something just does not load up and I have no idea how to investigate it.

Re: Windows 10 Unable to Start the game properly

Solved.

Apparently the older GOG version I had (not sure right now what was the version) did not "work" properly with F:Res

I just got GOG version "Fallout 2 (Classic) 2.1.0.17" and it worked at first touch.

Possibly this can (should) be added somewhere to the FAQ.

That's strange, I'll look into it. Thanks for the info.
