Problems with Virtual Villagers 3

Post by miiya1993 on Tue 29 Apr 2014, 22:34

Hi I downloaded the 3rd Virtual Villagers game from your games4theworld site and it isn't working properly. I know my computer is too small/old to run Sims 3 and I've made peace with that, but Virtual Villagers is a much smaller game...
Anyway, I have a HP Compaq computer running the 32-bit Windows Vista. I tried to launch the game but I got an error:0xc8660160 Cannot open display. I tried changing my monitor's setting and allowing it to run in DEP but still nothing.
Please help ~

Hello,

The game runs fine on my 64-bit Windows 7 (Ultimate). Have you correctly applied the file inside the #crack-folder of the download ? Copy and paste the file into C:\Program files(x86)\Virtual Villagers The Secret City. And you have to replace the existing file ! (just choose "copy and replace", when you're prompted).

Next, can you right-click on that Virtual Villagers - The Secret City.exe and choose "run as Administrator" ?

Hi there,

Also, what is your graphic card model? (If you're not sure, use Speccy to find out)

Hi there,

Unfortunately your PC only has an integrated graphic card.
Try opening Windows Update and let it search for new updates. After it finished searching, download and install all available updates, including the optional updates. After that, restart your PC.

If that didn't fix your issue, try running the game in Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode, and check the "Always run as administrator" box.
