Can't get this to run properly
Been trying to get this to run and have some strange issues. Load it up once, but don't see any cutscenes, just get the audio. Then if I quit and try to reload it, it resizes the desktop and won't respond. Have to go through the task manager to end the task. But... if i rename the folder that i put it into it and try to run it, it will load again. Have to change the folder name each time I quit but my player profile isn't saved (and it would be nice to see the cutscenes to know what's happening). Got me completely stumped. Race to Shangri-La does the same thing. Only tried it on my laptop (core i3 3xxx, win8.1 x64, intel hd 4000). Anyone got any ideas? These are the downloads from the Mutant League backer section of the website.
Probably some missing movie codec, did you try installing the k-lite pack? Also, see if you have flash installed (some of the games used flash players)
I wouldn't make that assumption. Companies often change the engines they use from game to game. Even if they don't, the company that makes the engine often does updates that are incompatible with previous versions.
This really does sound like a CODEC issue. What I would do is make an image of you system's drive, then experiment with a CODEC pack. If it doesn't work, Restore from the image backup and try another CODEC pack, and so on.
The Rita and 3Cards games use different engines...probably not fair to compare (one works, one does not)
I would try downloading again...I wonder if there was/is some corruption?
