View Full Version : SoMI 2 SE Crash-to-desktop

07-22-2010, 09:06 AM
Hello, I can't find any posts regarding this so I thought I'd ask if anyone has any ideas; when I first bought the game it worked fine and I played it a couple of nights in a row. Then I left it for a while and when I came back to it it won't start at all. I'm not sure whether there's been a patch or something, but I'd really like to get this fixed. There's no error message or anything, the screen goes black as it gets ready to launch, then pops back to desktop a few seconds later. I've tried running it in compatibility mode, as administrator, verifying local files, etc.

Windows 7 (x64)
GeForce GTX 285 (258.96, also tried with 257.21)
Directx 11, .NET framework, etc up to date

Nevermind, I've solved it. Just in case someone else has a similar problem it was due to something being wrong in the Settings.ini file (C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\LucasArts\Monkey Island 2 Special Edition)\Settings.ini), possibly screen resolution. Removing this file solved the problem.
