Hi there i wonder if someone can help me ive just bought the Massive Assault game and i had no troubling installing the game.But when it came to installing the latest patch i am now unable to run the game comes up with an error message on desktop.The version i have is GMX and i d/loaded the English patch version but unable to run it from the new exe icon can only run the game from the original exe icon if i cant sort this out i might return the game which looks good so far so any ideas what i can do would be appreciated thank you.

Thanks for your reply.I get a message on my desktop that says MA this program has performed an illegal operation and will close down.Underneath there is an icon to give details.Could there be a conflict with the original exe icon with the new one?Look forward to your reply thanks.

Usually most problems like that have been with drivers/hardware

Well as i said i had no problems with the original game i even turned off my firewall and antivirus to see if it would work.And my drivers are the latest i d/loaded for 64mb Geforce 420 graphics card so its a mystery to me why this is happening now.I admit the game req is a bit more than the processor of my computer mine is 466 celeron with 256 ram and has 9.01b directX but i manage to run the original as i do with some other games that have higher reqs well i see what happens thanks.

If you haven't already, reinstall and see if it can run, then redownload the patch and see it the game works after patching. It's entirely possible that something went wrong during the patching process (or that there was a problem with your download) which caused corruption of the executable.

Hi thanks when you say reinstall do i uninstall the game first and also i notice when i uninstall the game it gives me a list of files that it says do i want to uninstall as well that were there before or after i installed the game which i presume are the files from the latest patch do i leave them there or uninstall them as well.This is certainly not a straightforward game.Has anyone else manage to install the patch without any trouble thanks for any help.I d/loaded a patch from the Wargamer site the English version and it still happened could there be something wrong with the disk?

Hmm, its possible you might have downloaded the wrong patch version. There are two english patches, one for Europe, and one for America. Where did you buy the game?

And the best place to download the patch is at the Massive Assault official page, http://www.massiveassault.com/patch.php

I had no problem installing the American version.

Hi i bought the game from the Games shop in England.It has the GMX media logo on the box and on the disk so that was the version i d/loaded from the site that i had on the game i installed where you put in your name then your email address.The American version i saw was to do with the Matrix site unless all this means nothing i ll try the American version if you like look forward to your reply thanks.

Hi there i tried the American version the Matrix one and it comes up asking me for the right CD disk so its not that one so it must be the GMX English version which must be faulty let me know if anyone else has that version thanks.

There are several UK poeple that have been able to download and install the GMX version, at least I haven't heard any complaints from them. You'll have to wait for the email from support. They should be able to figure out what is going on with your ma.log and dxdiag files

Hi thanks i have received a reply from the support group and have asked m to send the log file that appears after i start the game with the new patch installed i dont know if my sound drivers might be the cause but surely they would have affected the original game well i wait and see what the support group have to say.
