Cannot start SB, after reinstall

Recommended Posts

Hello,

last night i had to format my drive and reinstall Windows, due to a harddrive crash.

I downloaded the full version (3.011) from this page:http://www.esimgames.com/?page_id=1390 and reinstalled Steal Beasts.

Installed the Codemeter software that came with the installer (without plugging in the dongle)

Created a shortcut on my desktop, from the file located in Esim Games/SB Pro PE/Release/SBProPEcm.exe and set it to "Run as administrator."

If i launch SB, i get a couple of errors:

- could not read palette file "CustomColorPalette.bmp" -> press OK

- could not read palette file "RandomColorPalette.bmp" -> press OK

- could not read palette file "RandomColorPalette_ISO.bmp" -> press OK

And then it just close back to desktop.

How can i fix these errors? This download is the same i used previously and SB ran fine with it (till last night)

Regards,

Falconeer

Did you run he installer as Administrator? If not, delete everything and re-install while running the installer as Admin. That may help.

That's a good suggestion... I can't remember, but it's not a big deal to try that one :wink2:

Will let you know

edit: That didn't work, still got the same errors and doesn't start...

Could you see if the file "CustomColorPalette.bmp" (or other file the game is complaining about) actually exists in your filesystem? It should be in 'Esim Games/SB Pro PE/images'..

Hello Retro,

i just checked and the files are missing:(

There is a m1 folder (which is empty too), fireballTIS.dds, missileTIS.dds, muzzleflashTIS.dds, ulanIntSrc1.bmp and xPlode1TIS.dds

The above is all there is in the image folder.

Re download and reinstall from scratch. Make sure your antivirus software is turned off a few minutes while you download and install the software.

Hello Sean,

your suggestion did the trick. Steel Beasts is working now! I think Norton was indeed the problem.

Thx a lot and happy tanking!
