Can't Install
« on: August 03, 2011, 03:07:51 pm »
I'm trying to reinstall my Machines disk on my win7 but it won't allow me to install anymore, it worked a few weeks ago.

Even if I did install it back then it would freeze on the options menu when I clicked Play and it said machines.exe is not a valid win32 ap.

What do you think, guys? Should we create a separate topic containing what to do/install before you can play Machines and make it sticky?... If it's not already there...

Anyway - to solve your problem, download this torrent: http://forums.wiredforwar.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=8199.0;attach=1283.

Should you not be able to download torrents for some reason, there are mirrors on megaupload.

First thing you have to do in that case, is download and apply this: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=0G483XEL.

Next, download http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-files_new.php/dllfiles/D/d3drm.dll/5.1.2600.0/download.html and unzip into your Machines folder.

Then, download http://www.artofmagic.co.uk/downloads/vidcard.zip. Replace your old vidcard.cap (found in your Machines folder) with this one.

After applying everything, don't forget to burn 'setupy.bin' (also found in your Machines folder... I believe) on a disc, or, even better, download this http://www.magicdisc.net/setup_magicdisc.exe, install it and mount Machines Disc 2 (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=NT7EP041).

Also, if you want to reduce most lag when playing multiplayer, download this http://www.fileswap.com/dl/gozeASF/AntiLag.reg.html, put it in your Machines folder and double-click it. Do join QuakeNet (IRC-channel on channel #Wiredforwar) to stay in touch with other members who frequently play matches against each other)!

I knuu, a shitload of downloads, but that's just what you need =P Good luck!

Remember when being a Wrath Reaper was badass? Those were the days. . .
