C&C parts bugged on Windows 10

Unread post by Bluearga »

Hi,

I have problem with my C&C when I upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10. My computer detects that it is installed. When I try to open the creation of these parts, the game go crash. During painting I have "empty" motifs from the expansion, C&C parts not appear.

The disc drive does not read my C&C disc, so afraid to uninstall it. SPORE and GA working properly.

Any ideas how fix it?

@Edit: I noticed that in compability with Win 7 / Vista I can preview the creatures of these parts, and sometimes it look good and sometimes it is bugged. However, I can't edit it because go the crash.

Good: http://oi61.tinypic.com/14y5tfr.jpg
Bad: http://oi58.tinypic.com/2n6w7mh.jpg (My Moonstruck Dragon, I save you! ;_; )

Please help cure my Moonstruck Dragon and other creatures. D:

...have you tried completely reinstalling the entire game set?

I really hate reinstall this game, installing the patches manually is awful and backup my creation does not always work properly. Besides, as I wrote - disc drive does not read my C&C disc, when I run "Autorun.exe" nothing happens. On a computer with Win XP this running, on Win 10 does not. Probably cause some security / no libraries in this system.

I wondered if the cause is not in the registry, but the computer sees that the expansion is installed.

Wait...there should be a package file on the disk, which I believe was called either "BP1_Data" or "BoosterPack_01". Try copying it into your Galactic Adventures Data folder, and let me know if that helps.

Ok, I reinstall all game and now this working... Finally.

But I noticed something. Core Spore without any patches don't work on Win 10 - this always crash when run and Windows write "This application has stopped working" but when I install C&C, this start working. Strange.

Moral: When updating the system to Win 10 you must reinstall the game.

Okay, good to know. I'll add that to the "Guide to running Spore on a Modern Computer" I'm working on :mrgreen:

I believe you can download the patches from online, without having to run the game or be logged in, it's been useful to me since the servers have been down.
I got patches 1.5, and 6 both from moddb

I hope this is helpful.

I take it you haven't noticed that we provide such patches right here on Davoonline? :lol:
