Error when starting Eternal Damnation ??
« on: October 28, 2008, 06:29:33 PM »
Hi all

I was really looking forward to playing this game but every time I start it, the splash screen appears for a short while then I get the same error appear, I've patched both Eternal Damnation and Postal 2 : Share the pain and it made no difference.

And ideas appreciated

Thanks

The Error is

Can't bind to native class Shell.SubActionTitle

History: UClass::Bind <- (Class Shell.SubActionTitle) <- ULinkerLoad::CreateExport <- (SubActionTitle 684762) <- ULinkerLoad::CreateImport <- IndexToObject <- ULinkerLoad::CreateExport <- (SubActionTitle0 7954713) <- IndexToObject <- ULinkerLoad<

Hi

It's a Laptop that I have it on, P4 , 2 GIG , 512ram

P2 and AW work fine

I tried the editor, it worked fine and I could load a map with no problem

Cheers

Hi

Yes ED is in it's own folder, the location is C:\Program Files\Postal2STP\eternal damnation

You are correct, Wesker is from Resident Evil  ;)

Hi

I re-downloaded ED and am still getting exactly the same error, if I have my virus software running it detects a problem with shell.dll ,, I can bypass this but still get the same message whether the virus software is running or not.

I borrowed the Fudge Pack off a mate and tried installing ED from that and got an error with the shell.dll file while installing, I clicked retry a few times with no success so clicked ignore, this ended the installation (so I couldn't even get it installed from the Fudge Pack)

Any ideas ?

Cheers

hmm.....try copying over shell.dll from AW to ED?

since its a mod and we used AW as a base then it should do the trick.

by any chance are you using avast anti virus?

just wondering as it seems to think anything postal is a virus as this pic proves.



odviously the ini file is not a virus but avast seemed to think it was :S

do you have STP installed(STP and not regular postal2)?

make sure that ED and STP are installed on the same drive (for example if you have STP installed on F:\program files\postal2STP,then install ED on F:\ allso)

if you don't have the multiplayer postal 2 download it from gopostal.com (theres a free vertion available)
