HELP! CAN'T PLAY THE GAME!

Postby Fadedgogeta » Sat May 28, 2016 7:44 pm

I can't even play Scp-087 B. Everytime I attempt to launch it all it does is give me a MAV error immediately after the window opens. I have tried nearly everything to fix this, ran in compatibility for EVERY single thing in the drop down box, I have ran as admin, I have changed resolution a lot. I redownloaded it many times, ran the exe from the zip and extracted the zip and no matter what I still get the MAV. I really wanna play this game even if it's 3-4 years old and not supported.

Which OS is your machine?

Then you shouldn't have problems that wouldn't occur on a 32-bit system. Often, an oversight by the programmer is the culprit. The game being unsupported is also a culprit. I imagine that since it was written in a single weekend, Regalis wouldn't want to put more work into it than was worth.

It's strange though, I see many people on Windows 7 playing the game with no problems. I think it is the game as when I tried playing the older version of 087 B, the one with that Finnish singer at the end, it still got a MAV.

I believe it is something to do with options.ini as sometimes when i change to some resolutions I get something like Unable to set Graphics mode or something with 3D.
anyway to make sure here are my settings in options.ini (yes I know, my monitor is small. NOTE: even with the default settings, which resolution is set to 1024x768 and fullscreen is on, I still get MAV.

[options]

width = 1366
height = 768
colordepth = 32
fullscreen = false

;0 = darkest, 255 = brightest
brightness = 40

character speed = 20

invert mouse y = false

The resolution is probably your problem.

Hmm. That is my montior's native resolution, I'll look up more resolutions to try out.
