Small error here...
« on: October 16, 2011, 03:40:30 pm »
So I have this guy on Facebook asking me if I can help him with this error. His system stops responding in the intro, it loads about 10% and stops. If he waits there's a white screen but he can still move his mouse. He's installed the necessary patches and downloaded the 'd3drm.dll' file...

Any help plsthx =D

Always have to help our fellow fans, do we ;)

Now this is guesswork. If he would download ProcMon http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645 then it might tell us whats going on.

After launching ProcMon set filter for machines.exe Filter -> Filter -> set "Display entries matching..." to "Process Name", "is not", "machines.exe", then "exclude". Take a look at screenshot:



Then he should start machines, after freeze he can use windows key switch to ProcMon* then File->Save with default settings. Saved log is quite large but after zip compression it's about 3mb. This log file is good start to troubleshooting, it can be loaded in another computer to trace loading process.

*if windows key won't work then i will attach here script for timer-released machines shutdown

Owraight. Ossom, man!

Well, to be honest, I don't know if he has the IQ to know how to handle the program, let alone start it... I mean, you know, he's one of those
I IDIOT HELP PLZ WIT MACHINS BCAUS IT NOT WORK HURPY-DURPY-DERP

=P

He can use Alt-Tab as an alternative to the Windows-key, though.

Right, I'll tell him.

Yeah, I'm sorry, I haven't really found the time to tell him of this app... I best do this right now, doesn't take that long, anyways.

EDIT: notified him. I'll keep you posted.

Do you know what belittled means? I'm pretty sure that that is not the politically correct word that would profoundly fit in that sentence. He isn't deriding your 'feats,' therefore he is not belittling you...

Do you mean, bewildered? That would make more sense.

Definition of BELITTLE
transitive verb
1: to speak slightingly of : disparage <belittles her efforts>;
2: to cause (a person or thing) to seem little or less.


He's 'belittled' by mb's skills, meaning he wants to point out that he's small/nothing compared to him ;)

Bewildered makes less sense, because we're not 'confused' by his skillz.

So shaddap, turd.

And, yes, I knew the definition before looking it up.

No. You cannot use that word because mb does not explicitly state any deriding words towards Mahmoud. mb simply can't debase Mahmoud of any status because Mahmoud did not contribute anything in order for him [Mahmoud] to seem lesser than mb in any way shape or form. You can't take the word out of context. Mb may implicitly think that Mahmoud is an idiot, which I am sure we all do, however, he does not openly state it.

Personally, I do not know how to make that application function, therefore I am bewildered whenever he suggests something...
