SOURCE: installed still life and it wont play , it says game is running

Find the program in the installation directory. It might be something like C:\Program Files\The Adventure Company\Microids\StillLife

Now right-click on Stilllife.exe, then click Properties. Click the Compatibility tab, then select Windows 98/ME from the drop down menu. Hit OK and try to run the game again. It should start up just fine.

Hello,

Have you made sure your graphics card has the newest drivers ? Part 1 and 2 could have been made quiet differently. Your ATI graphics card is having an issue or glitch with Syberia part 2.

1.Try updating latest drivers
2.Also search for a patch that microids may have come out with to fix this type of issue.

Post back and let me know how that goes.

You probably need to install a newer version of DirectX software from Microsoft.
You appear to have DirectX version 8 installed at the moment, which is an old version.Download this web installer file, then run the file (double-click) and DirectX will download & install automatically.

Hi there i bourght an amcap camera i installed it and it says on the screen cannot run preview grapH:P what do i do plz help


This issue is usually caused by the graphic interface is not supported. You need to verify that you have the newer version of DirectX. To check the version number click START, select RUN and type DXDIAG to bring up the DirectX Diagnostic.

If everything appears to be ok, make sure the web cam driver is properly installed along with the video driver (video card). Please update the DirectX version of Windows if you got an older version.

If it doesn't work. try:

Check Properties of "My Computer> Hardware> Device Manager" you have any device with an exclamation mark or cross in yellow or red, respectively.

If you do not have anything like that, check if your webcam device appears in the listing.

If that doesn't work or there is no error on properties, another driver may be causing problems. you may need to go a little technical about this issue following the steps below:

1) install the drivers by disabling all the non Microsoft services on your system.
2) uninstall the web cam drivers.
3) unplug the web cam and need to reboot your system.
4) Then you need to go on your Start menu, then select Run and then type: msconfig and press the enter key.
5) on the General tab,you need to click on Selective Startup.
6) Under Selective Startup, you need to click on clear the Load Startup Items check box.
7) Then again click on the Services tab, then you need to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then you need to click on Disable All.
8) Then click on OK. Then it ask you whether you would like to reboot your system,just click on Restart.
9) Install the driver.
10) Plugin the webcam.
11) Restart the computer.

After doing all this still doesn't work, the issue may be caused by some kind of incompatible hardware.

Good luck!
