Game won't start/ No error reports (Solved)

Postby Nuggles » Sat Sep 21, 2013 4:38 pm

I bought the game via Steam and when I click play it says I'm in game for a couple seconds then closes. Nothing flashes up, it doesn't show me any feedback. I also went to the common/towns folder and there is no error.log file or hs_err... file. I have the latest Java version at this moment (version 7 update 40) both 32 and 64 bit. I also have the latest drivers for my video card which is a Radeon 7850, (version 13.9). I'm also running windows 8 and have tried compatibility mode for everything.

I've sort of given up since all the problems other people have at least give them a crash report while I'm not getting anything. Any help or speculation would be awesome. Thanks.

If you head to the towns folder and edit the towns.cmd and place:

Code: Select all
pause


At the end of the file (below the java declaration). Then double click the cmd file and see what it says (it'll prevent the comman prompt from closing)

Thank you! I got it working by changing the -Xms and -Xmx to 512m

You... you are amazing. I've spent hours of Googling and searching trying to find a solution. First one that works!

what does cmd stand for?

it now comes up with this
[08-Jul-2014 15:54:22][UtilsGL] Fast decoding of image failed: java.io.FileNotFoundException: nullicon.png (The system cannot find the file specified)
[08-Jul-2014 15:54:22][UtilsGL] java.lang.NullPointerException

and ideas?
