Question about Ubi Soft Petz: Dogz 5 and Catz 5 Compilation (008888682295) for PC

2 Answers

Dogz 2006 Version Freezes when I select Load from it's menu.

We are using Windows XP have 2Gb Ram, 40 Gb HDD In a Compaq Evo 2.26Ghz and have switched the dogz.ini file to read 1024 X 768.

We installed the CD my daughter purchased thru Scholastic. It worked the first time she tried it and subsequent tries freeze the PC and we have to hard boot. She has three dogz created so far.

How do you get this game beyond its main menu when you go to select load?

Yep - fixed it already. Went to other blogs and found another setting to change in the same dogz.ini file.

Have to change to read the following:

[Engine.Direct3D]
AllowFullscreenAntiAlias=0

If you have the value '1' change it to '0'

My daughter has restored her faith in my computer savvy as a result! Win-win.

Ubisoft needs to update their support.

Most probably your hardware ie graphic card do not support software requirements.

Autocad 2009 system requirements for Win XP.
32-bit AutoCAD 2009
Running under Windows XP:
•Microsoft Windows XP SP2 operating system
•Intel® Pentium® 4 processor or AMD Athlon®, 2.2 GHz or greater
or
Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 1.6 GHz or greater
•1 GB RAM
•750 MB free hard disk space for installation
•1024x768 VGA with true color
•Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 (SP1 or higher)
If you are using AutoCAD for 3D modeling, you should bump up your system as follows:
•Intel Pentium 4 processor or AMD Athlon, 3.0 GHz or greater
or
Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 2.0 GHz or greater
•2 GB RAM or greater
•2 GB of additional free hard disk space

I have a hp ellitebook 8440p and it shutsdown when running autocad lt2009


1. Autocad uses a lot of memory. Make sure you the maximum ram installed. You can check the virtual memory if that does not work.
2. Shutting down in the middle of an operation can be that the unit is overheating. Use a cooler, docking station, or stand the book on the side with the laptop lid open about 45 degree angle. Leave it on to see if it shuts down within the same time as when it was laying flat with Autocad running. If it takes longer, the problem may be a fan not cooling properly or allow more cooling during the use of Autocad.

Will Catz 5 work on Vista operating system? Vista isn't listed on required system


You can find information on how to make it work at http://ubisoft.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/ubisoft.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=11729.
Although the manufacturer doesn't guarantee this will work it looks like several people on the web claims it does.
The steps to implement compatibility mode for Vista are:
Once the game has been installed:

1. Find the game icon listed in your games directory.
2. Right click on the game and click on Customize. This will bring up the customize menu.
3. Select Play.
4. Select Edit.
5. This will bring up the Properties screen. Click the Compatibility tab.
6. Check 'run in compatibility mode' and then choose Windows XP or whatever operating system the game was designed for.
7. Press Apply then press OK. You will be back at the customize menu.
8. Close the customize screen.

The game should now be configured to run in Compatibility mode.

Be sure that you put the file into the "Dogz" Folder.
How you find the folder:
Go to your BOOT and search for the folder "Ubisoft" Double click, you will find the "Studio Mythos" Folder, double click, the "Petz 5" Folder, double click on it, now the "Resource" Folder and now open the "Dogz" Folder and out your downloaded Petz in it.
