My version of Windows is Vista Ultimate (64 bit) If it’s a pirated version, I’ll be able to get the company that sold me my laptop in lots of trouble… Impulse installs the game i a “non-standard” directory, if that’s what you mean. You don’t have a choice to install it in the default directory…it jut plops it in the “C:\Program Files (x86)\Positech Games\Democracy 2” directory for me (but on a non-64-bit windows, I assume it would just be in Program Files instead of Program Files (x86))
Just installed it on my old machine to test things out a bit more. This machine is WinXP Professional. Downloading Democracy 2 from Impulse once again, the game installed in the “C:\Program Files\Positech Games\Democracy 2” directory. There is no debugdata directory in either the main directory or the mods directory in the My Documents. Perhaps the lack of the debugdata directory has something to do with the install directory not being in the normal place when you use Impulse to download it? (By the way, as of 10:44 PM today, Impulse is still using v1.18)
Go news - Democracy 2 works on my old machine.
Bad news - I copied over the data directory from the old machine onto my new laptop, as well as the folder that goes into the My Documents folder. I then ran the game on my Laptop, and it still crashes at the Loading MIssions screen. I looked into the data.ini file, and in the [setup] section, the first two lines are:
mission = data/missions/mission1.txt
events = data/simulation/events.csv
I looked in the data/missions directory, and there is no mission1.txt file. There is also no events.csv in the simulation directory. The last four lines in the file are:
situations = data/simulation/situations.csv
simulation = data/simulation/simulation.csv
policies = data/simulation/policies.csv
voters = data/simulation/votertypes.csv
and each of these files exists on my hard drive. Are the two missing .csv files the problem that I’m running into?
