    Thread: Problems Launching Black Plague Demo
Post: RE: Problems Launching Black Plague Demo

Checkout this thread: http://frictionalgames.com/forum/showthr...p?tid=1738 To summarize, it looks like the solution is to delete the OpenAL32.dll and wrap_oal.dll files from the game's folder.

Post: RE: My game disc has no data on it.

When you said "devoid of data", can you describe exactly what happens? Does it say "No disc in drive", or does it open an empty folder that says "0 bytes", etc? What operating systems have you tried i...

Post: RE: BSOD error

I think AVG scans the boot sector by default. However, if you had a boot sector virus, you would be noticing far more severe problems than Penumbra not working :)

Works perfectly with all effects on (motion blur, bloom, post effects, etc) with Radeon X1650XT and driver version 8.2 on Windows XP. Awesome!

Same results as with the original. With newest 8.1 drivers, texture is all white, but with older 7.11 driver, looks perfect. They sure heat up my graphics card quickly! :)

This is interesting. With an ATI Radeon X1650XT and latest driver (8.1), the original EXE renders it all white and the NoMipMaps EXE renders it properly. With the 7.11 driver, both work perfectly (may...

Post: RE: Penumbra Overture Issues

The file in Program Files\OpenAL is just the installer, the actual file is OpenAL32.dll in Windows\System32. Can you check what version this file is? Mine seems to be 6.14.357.19, for example.

Does downgrading the video driver to the one from 7.11 or earlier help? http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/vista...sta64.html

Hm. I did a little more testing and found out that if I replace atioglxx.dll with the version from the 7.11 drivers, the problem goes away. Version 6.14.10.7058 of atioglxx.dll works, but version 6.14...
