OK I'll try to be on tomorrow/ Friday. But since I work retail tomorrow might be difficult now that I think about it. If I can't make it tomorrow I'll definitely be on Saturday. And I will install team viewer just in case, and thanks to everyone that is trying.

Thanks for all the help guys. It took a while but I finally got the game to launch and work on my new computer.

Can you first try disabling your firewall before starting the game, it would make sure if that's the problem. system you are trying to run Paraworld on, not a hardware firewall, as that would not be a problem in this case.

Hi everyone, I'm trying to get Paraworld working on Windows 10 64-Bit.

I've so far installed the base game, then installed the windows 7 fix (which did come up with a prompt saying 'No Cached Files' if that matters), followed by the Booster Pack.

This left me with a couple of different shortcuts on my desktop. When I've attempted to launch the game, the screen resolution changes and the program launches, but the screen just freezes, half blue and half black.

Then, when I use task manager to end the process, the shortcuts all disappear from the desktop?

I'm just wondering if anyone can give me any help getting the game running?

Thanks,
Nez

Hi Nez,

Game -> Boosterpack 2.0 -> Win7 fix is the correct installation order. If you have installed the original boosterpack, just install the BP2.0 over it. Then install the Win7 fix again.

You should then have a shortcut for "vanilla" PW (no boosterpack), Boosterpack, and the SDK/leveleditor (probably with boosterpack only, you can change this in the shortcut properties).

The half-freezed-screen is the intro which is not displayed correctly. Pressing ESC a few times gets you to the main menu.

No shortcuts should disappear after killing a process via taskmanager, that would be strange. I'd imaging this is due to your resolution changing.

You should set the game resolution to your desktop resolution once you are in the main menu for the first time.

Welcome to the Forum!

I have installed the game on Windows 10 but now it is showing server error and I don't know how to figure it out. It is getting very difficult for me to run the game. I have tried a lot but it is not working.
