2 majorly annoying errors

Post by leetslay » Tue Dec 18, 2007 6:23 pm

I'm having no problem with starting up a server, and creating new games within it with the server program works fine.

But the client is worse. At startup, it complains about
"Cannot determine the device type from the given filename extension."
and then it starts and everything seems fine anyways.

So I go to connect to server and join localhost, no problem there, now I can choose New Game or Join Game.
I have already created a game with the server, so I choose Join Game and tries to join the only game displayed. And here the client crashes. The server seems to acknowledge that I'm joining the game, but the client hangs up.

Also, when I try to create a new game with the client, when clicking on the number of players button it says: " " is not a valid integer value."

So I can't create new games with the client or join games with it. Yay :)

If you take your time to fix this problem, I'll be eternally grateful.

Thanks,
leetslay

That's not one of my error msgs, so I looked it up on google. I think its Windows complaining that it can't play the background music. Because starting the music is halfway through the startup jobs, the rest don't happen which is why I think then everything else (joining games etc.) isn't working right.

Its weird you can't play .mid files, that's something I thought was a standard windows feature? If you get a standalone .mid file what happens if you try to play it?

Well that could most certainly be because I'm using a stripped down Windows XP version. I'm not sure what to do to fix it, suppose I have to download some kind of driver or something..

Nvm I solved it, had to edit some regkeys, although I think the problem is very local so I won't bother posting the solution here. Thanks for the hint.
