Post by luukdeman » 24 Jun 2008 10:07

hi. i've bought tm sunrise and i have windows vista. now when im trying to start the game.. i click on it, launcher appears, i click play, then it loads protection system (defence line) when thats done, i see a little window appear for just 1 second. and then it dissapears and it just won't start. i think somting with compitability problems. is there somthing i can do about it?? plz help.
oh, and ive read that u have to start the game whitout using the launcher, but its the same problem, only it goes directly to the protection system (defence line). and it doesnt start the game.

run as administrator.. That fixes almost all "not able to run" issue's.

Try, instead of running the game from the launcher, go into windows explorer and find the actual executable file, and run that. It'll still save your configurations, don't worry, but it's just a few more steps to actually get into the game...<_<

I know this topic is a year old, but now I'm having problems. I have Windows 7, so I don't know if that makes any difference. Anyway, I've done everything suggested earlier (run the game directly as administrator), and have patch 1.51. When I go to launch the game, DefenceLine pops up and says "Application installed successfully. Reboot the computer to complete the installation. Continue?". I've rebooted several times and nothing's happened. When I say 'No' it exits out and doesn't start.

Any suggestions?

EDIT: Just read the post below this. Sorry!
