When I try to start egoboo up I get one of those windows messages saying,
Egoboo.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close...

I tried it on the 3 most recent versions, none worked.
I run windows xp

NOT really sure of my system specs, I only know my sound card and graphics card, but Its a pretty nice computer and im 100% sure I qualify (I do lots of things that require more power than this)

So if anyone can help me out please do so, great game that I want to play again.

any of them, I'd prefer the latest stable one, which if I am correct is 2.7.5?

Latest stable release is 2.6.1b.
I get the same error, Except for the old install of 2.7.5.
It seems that the installer with the red "E" icon causes this error, the old 2.7.5 didn't use that installer, so I got it to work.

Yeah, I still have the same problem. This is getting annoying; something seems to be up with the builds...

Oh, by the way, welcome to the forums. If you haven't done already, please read the rules. Other than that, have fun around here! Very Happy

Delete your current shortcut and make a new one, it might work.

It seems 2.4.4b is a version that has worked on all pc's.

And the installer should not affect if the game works or not. I think it is rather the .exe file which is compiled differently.

That's what I wanted to say.

So, any chance of going back to the old .exe compiler (Or whatever that is that you changed)?

well nothing has worked, Bang Head but thanks for the efforts.

Hope we get this fixed soon

... Confused

Well, it was probably my cookie anyway. Either that or it was nasty. AoD hates cookies, so he probably wouldn't put much effort into them. Razz Smile

Anyway, even though it's probably not a problem with you not meeting the system requirements, it's nice to know how to do this (I just found out how fairly recently; I'm not sure why I never knew before):
Click on start, then "run", and type in "dxdiag." Then hit enter.
