Syberia 2 hangs on start

Postby misterchimps » Tue 24 Nov 2009 05:19

We just got the Viva Adventure Anthology that includes Syberia 2. It installs fine, and launches, but hangs on the loading screen. Then it crashes to a notify Microsoft screen.

We are running XP Service Pack 3 on a Gateway 7400 AMD 64.

Hello misterchimps. As a first step, you should try updating your video and sound card drivers. A good idea is to go to Windows Update and make sure you install all important updates found there, and you should also try updating your DirectX at the Microsoft Download Center. Additionally, you can try reinstalling Syberia 2. Also check that you are installing/running the game using an account that has administrative rights.

We did update the drivers, but it never loads correctly. I ended up installing it on another machine and it is running fine. Weird....
