Coven has become incompatible, to elaborate more, it will launch up to the valve video Then crash after I get a glimpse of the coven background. All the other coven releases have worked up till the one made yesterday. It sucks since when I tried to get on to try to get some good "footage" with my new found way of recording when 7 people were on for once, it wouldn't' start. I am running windows 7 64 bit, BUT never havfe once ran into a problem.
I have tried: /-novid
to run compatability mode on every hl2.exe in every combination from xp sp 1 sp 2 sp 2 to vista sp 1 sp 2.
tried to run hl2 death match then coven
to reinstall coven 3.0
installed 2.5, then install 3.0 on top of it
tried to dl 3.0 .zip to see if the 3.0 installer just sucks BUT it says download off of the file is being blocked BY THE WEBSITE\
and.... thats it... thank you for your time... I doubt you can solve this though since your not a windows engineer..... I think....
Ill keep you updated, maybe it is just the installer not liking 64 bit operating system, since the past releases I mainly used the zip, same goes for most mods :/. For now I will tinker and search for a resolution online since it is also happening to my source dedicated server but not my normal dedicated server :/, feels more like source + 64bit = ......black screen of death.
A HAAA I THINK I FIXED IT, I updated my sdk for 2009 (I donth think that fixed it) added -novid and -autoconfig to launch options and it fixed the binaries after 10 minutes of a black screen....... weird...........o and I also made hl2 1/2 and hl2 dm vista service pack 2 compatibility admin allowed... not sure which fixed it..
