Petz 5 game rooms issue. [SOLVED]

Post by genie27f on Wed 25 Dec 2013, 04:10

hello

I just started playing this game and i noticed i can't go into any of the special rooms to play the mini games. All that happens when i choose one of these rooms is multiple windows popping up giving me instruction on how to start the game but the game freezes and eventually crashes when trying to close all the windows.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Hello,

Do you still have the original .RAR file of that download ? Or even the folder where you extratced all the .RAR contents to ?

If so, look for the "dxsetup.exe". Double-click on it and follow the instructions. Then re-start the game and see if that helped...

I actually don't have any problem with the game freezing. I have both "Catz 5.0" and "Dogz 5.0" installed - and then I used the #crack file inside the "Catz 5.0" download, and copied it over to the program folder (wherever the game is installed for you - re-check the instructions !).

Let me know about your progress !

Hello again,

Try downloading and installing "PetzA" - that's basically a patch:

http://www.sherlocksoftware.org/page.php?id=7

Download the latest 2.2.5 version and double-click the installer. Your installation should be recognized automatically; so follow the instructions. After finishing, re-start the game and see if anything improved (you should be able to play the game without having a physical disc inserted; at least I can still start the game that way).

Keep us updated ! And: please use the "edit"-button instead of double-posting. Wink 


//EDIT

And please, what I meant was that if nobody has responded in the meantime to your message, you should use the "edit"-button to edit your original message.

NOW, since I have replied to your message, you can now click the button "post reply", to create a NEW post, that will show up after mine. Wink  Please do that, instead of editing previous posts. This only makes the topic very difficult to follow.

I tried installing that patch and no change in issue. Is there any other information I can provide to help this situation?

I'm sorry to hear about this strange game glitch, but I'm slowly running out of explanations.

Try going to Piratebay and type into the search prompt "Games4TheWorld". Then look for a download called "Your Un-Installer Pro". Download and install that program.

Open the program then. Choose "Petz 5.0/Catz 5.0/Dogz 5.0" (or whatever it is called on your computer) in the main menu; just double-click on it. In the next window choose "Super mode" and wait for the program to perform a "clean" un-install.

Re-boot the computer after that. And then re-install the games, following the included instructions. See if that works for you, but beyond that, there isn't too much else I can suggest.

Maybe you can right-click on the game shortcut and choose "run as Administrator" ? Or right-click on the shortcut, go to "Properties", and in the "Compatibility"-tab mark the box "run as Administrator". Also, try marking the box "run in compatibility mode for..." and then choose Windows XP (SP3) or Windows 7. Then, close all windows by click ing on "Apply" and then "OK".

If none of these tips work, then I'm out of ideas.  Wat.
