OK, I tried Uniextract but all i got was the same file with a different name. I tried extracting that one again but I just got some weird non-dll files. I just can't seem to get this right :(

Yeah well, you have to repeat the extraction three times :wink: The file after the first extraction is the TMP file.

I installed it as you said, but when I start BA2 the monitor just turns black and then goes back toe the desktop, no errors.
What to do now???

Hi,

i pretty certain we will get the game to run but i need to take a look at a profiled DWI log.Please follow the part.1 and part 2 of the DWI Dependency Walker log guide and upload the profiled ba2.exe-dwi.You may also need to check some other libraries installed in the binaries directory and see if there are any error alerts when you open them with Dependency Walker.

Hi Falcon,

i'm not giving up that easily :wink: We start from the beginning.Please follow this guide and profile the main BA2 executable.Whenever you have any kinds of problems with the guide or Dependency Walker, just let me know.
Info: Dependency Walker logs (= dwi file)

Hi,

i looked at the dwi and your send files.Please add the wrapper kernel32.dll and user32.dll along with the corresponding renamed system files to fix the following exports and test again.

Missing Exports:
KERNEL32.dll - ActivateActCtx,CreateActCtxW,DeactivateActCtx,ReleaseActCtx (Launcher.exe)
USER32.dll - DisableProcessWindowsGhosting (BA2.exe)

For compatibility issues add Aclayers.dll:
Copy the aclayers.dll from
Code: Select all
C:\WINNT\AppPatch\
to the bin directory.Now open Windows Notepad Editor and write the following line:
Code: Select all
[win2k_xp_kernel32]
Load_ACLayers=1

and save it as
Code: Select all
win2k_xp_kernel32.ini

(Info: win2k_xp_kernel32.ini)
and also copy the wrapper.ini to the binaries directory.

greets

Sorry, but I don't quite understand what to do now.
"Please add the wrapper kernel32.dll and user32.dll along with the corresponding renamed system files to fix the following exports and test again."
Wich wrapper? And where to put the kernel32 and user32 files?
"and also copy the wrapper.ini to the binaries directory."
Wich wrapper.ini?
Sorry for not asking earlier, but I couldn't connect to this site for some reason.

Qich wrapper.ini?

Hey buddy, no problem i can help you :wink:

1) you copy the aclayers.dll from here C:\WINNT\AppPatch\ to the binaries directory.
2) open Notepad Editor/Texteditor and enter this entry:
Code: Select all
[win2k_xp_kernel32]
Load_ACLayers=1

then save as win2k_xp_kernel32.ini (ANSI format)
3) now all you have to do is copy this win2k_xp_kernel32.ini to the binaries directory (next to the Wrapper kernel and aclayers.dll).

Other things i would recommend you to do:
- check the game libraries and other exe files on missing exports and errors when opening in Dependency Walker
- google for known graphic card issues related this game
- install latest DX9 (February 2010 build should be okay here)
- google for game patches
- check the game with DebugDiag
- google if third party software like for example Adobe AIR is required

OK, I think I know why it CAN NOT work on my PC. I read the readme and it says that the Athlon XP is NOT supported. :x Only Athlon 64 and above! All that work for nothing. Same thing with Colin McRae DiRT. Yet I wonder why BA2 actually started and could be played (although without sound) without any problem. Oh well.
If you have any tipps, I would really appreciate that. :(

PS: I meant that BA2 could be played before we had started to fix it.

Yup, its highly likely that the game requires SSE2 chip instructions.When you are lucky and the game engine uses the Nvtt.dll you could try out the Borderline SSE2 fix.Check with Dependency Walker if this library is loaded and look for it in the game directories.

Unofficial AMD Athlon XP fix:
Borderline Nvtt.dll with no SSE2 fix

If thats not the case, find the SSE2 library and google if you can find a similar SSE2 fix which may got released for this or another game.

Good luck!!!!
