As i said: Install this: http://www.tagesprotection.com/main.htm
If you have 64 bit, use the second link.

In much cases, this solved the problem ;)

I found out that your very first driver installation is the cause for this problem. It's even mentioned on some blogs/forum that old drivers mess up the win7 tages driver installation. Though I dont know yet, how win7 handles drivers. I need more time to read about it. Not possible before the weekend, sorry

I everybody,

I have a problem with lots of Paraworld's material.

I have changed my computer, and now it's a Window 7 64 bits !

I tried to install paraworld, the installation worked, but it didn' launched itself.
So, i set the compatibility on XP SP 2
nothing
I installed the TagesSetup thing ...
nothing
I download a NO DVD crack (a shame when you bought the game a while ago !)
AND it worked !

So : if your game still don't work after using TagesSetup, try a crack.

I continue my story...
So my game works, but the introduction video (the beautiful one with the fights) as the different logos do not work ... but it's not a major problem.

I tried to instal your Boosterpack v2, with everything in it (Seasmod, and Map editor)....
And then nothing worked anymore ! I tried to reinstal the crack, and still nothing.

As i think that not playing with SEAS mod, i tried to find your first Booster pack. I manage to find the french translation, but not the pack...

I said to myself : "too bad, but let's try to install the SDK" as i love creating maps !
I found it, i installed it .... the game still work, but the SDK doesn't launched.
I set the compatibility on XP SP2 .... The game launches itself, but il crashes automatially with an Error message.

Can anybody help me to fix the SDK problem, and eventually tell me where to find the Booster pack v1.4 ?

Thanks a lot !

Hi.

You did some wrong things sorry :(

1. Install Paraworld (so reinstall everything now)
2. Install BP2 (http://forum.para-welt.com/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=1128)
3. There you already HAVE the French texts, SDK and so on...
4. Install newest TAGES drivers from the website AFTER deinstalling the old ones. (http://www.tagesprotection.com/main.htm ... inimum.htm)
Also see Activation => Completely removing T@GES from your system for deinstalling.
5. Install SEASMOD/Mappack
6. Enjoy Paraworld :)

I will try !

(note : after having installed the Map editor, the Escarmouche match couldn't been launchend ! O_o )


So I will try what you told me to do, and I'll tell you.
You think it will work even on a 64 bit with Window Seven ?

I tried as you told me ...

In the end, when i clicked on the icons, nothing happened at all !

I might have donne something wrong with Tages, perhaps ?

And then, i installed a NO dvd Crack...
When i clicked on the icon, i was allowed to enter my cdkey, and after that, it gets stuck on the Paraworld logo, without doing nothing.
Is there something wrong with my dvd lector ?

If you managed to install, not.

Instead of a Crack, better use an image! I do it and it works and doesnt change the game. ;) I can give you one, send me a PM.

For your problem, yeah i think it has to do with Tages.

Hi,

this is not going to work by any suggestions given in this thread... sorry


TAGES, the copy protection driver, causes this problem. After one unsuccesfull installation (the game does not report an error, but it does not start either) you are in trouble

To prevent this, the newest 64bit driver from TAGES homepage needs to be installed before installing the game. You did not? Then it is messed up


Later today I will post more on how to handle the situation if you have accidently installed the old version of Tages. It is something I'm still reading about on other websites because the solution is based on Windows7's driver handling. I dont know the solution yet, but I have time today to look. If you can support me, this is very appreciated as I dont use Win7 64 (yet)

You can find me at the tavern at 19:00 (CET, chat time)

http://www.para-welt.com/tavern/



By the way: All available nocd-cracks are limited to v1.01 of Paraworld, but all boosterpacks and gold versions are v1.05...

If you don't use newer patches than 1.01, you can at least play the game. The official map editor uses v1.01 and should therefore work for you. You can download it from our (Download) Tools section on this forum. The one from boosterpack2.0 can work but I would not recommend to using the boosterpack until you can start the game without a crack

Users of win7 please try this:

http://www.itechtalk.com/thread3911.html


Then install tages again to remove it and afterwards install it so it hopefully works this time

We are still trying out more

Finally ! I managed to install Paraworld AND its SDK.

First : install Tages (just in case)
Then, the game
Then, the SDK (everyting in the "normal" directory)
and then, the crack no dvd (or no cd) 1.01 !
Both work perfectly (except the introduction video)

Perhaps, if i manage to find the first version of the booster pack, i'll retry with it, but since my both wishes are accomplished (running the game and the sdk), as some Dustriders say : "Everything's ok upthere !"

well, ok if it works for you. but normally you should only install bp2 cause sdk and all patches are already in there. and, as tric said, install tages before installing the game should help

I have a big problem.
When I try to launch Paraworld, the sound doesn't want to start. Not in the movie, not in the menu, not in game. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
I'm using Windows Vista (up to date), Paraworld V1.05, and I installed boosterpack V2, the map pack, and the Seasmod.

Hi Heatseeker96,

which sound devices do you have? On-board sound card? Seperate card? Is it a laptop?


Please end the game and try this:

START-> RUN -> Enter: Paraworld.exe -setting defaultsettings.cfg -autoconfigrules autoconfigrules.txt -nolaunch

It resets your Paraworld settings and creates a new configuration at next start.

It didn't work. My (enabled) sound system is 'Realtek High Defenition Audio' as on-board sound card on my Dell Inspiron 530 desktop.

Sorry, but for playing Paraworld on windows 7 you NEED a download version/game magazine version of PW, because TAGES does not work for Windows 7 :( When you have a download version, it should always be Gold (i dont think there are other versions?) so just install the Community Patch then.

Well, sorry i couldn't help you :(

Hi Karrot, welcome ;). As Ayce already mentioned running Paraworld on Windows 7 is not easy and in many cases impossible. Could you tell us which Win7 you are using? 64bit? You turned off firewall- and anti-virus-tools before starting Paraworld?
