View Full Version : Crash on startup

10-31-2011, 12:00 AM
Just bought A.R.E.S as a part of the indie royale pack. However it fails to start when I launch it. Monitor just have time to switch resolution before the crash.

I have installed .NET and the XNA sound framework. No error.log file exists in the A.R.E.S directory. Latest drivers for all hardware components. Windows 7 64 bit.

Anyone have the same problem?

Hey, I happen to have the same problem, I had already checked that link you posted above but everything is up to date and I have windows media player running. I have checked for an error log but there is nothing in that folder.
If it helps, I am using a
Lenovo Thinkpad
Intel Core i7
Windows 32-bit
NVIDIA Quadro 4200M

EDIT: After running A.R.E.S. and having it crash many times (I got frustrated) I finally got this error log from the game:

Cannot find supported audio device.
