Title: Can't start the game
Post by: InsertNameHere on June 29, 2013, 02:20:02 PM
When I try to start the game it seems to work at first:the picture comes up and then the window after it but right after the window appears the screen flashes black and it deletes itself(the window). Can anyone help me with this, please?

Do you get an error report of any kind before it closes?

No,I don't. It just closes all of a sudden with no explanation.

Is your antivirus program interfering with it?

That is, does your antivirus program use features similar to bitdefender's Active Virus Control (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Active_Virus_Control#Active_Virus_Control)?

If so, you may need to disable that feature, as it's known to not work all the time on computers.

If not, you may need to redownload the application.

Is the Spelunky application in the folder?

I tried a few things with my anti-virus software with no success and I have tried redownloading it with no success also, and it is in folder "spelunky_1_1[1]" so yes, it is in the folder(What the heck is wrong with this thing!)

Can't think of a solution :/

All I can say is, you're screwed. (not to be rude :))

Sounds like it might be a video mode / video card related problem. Try running config.exe and turning full screen on or off.

Oh, yes that worked! Thank you so much everyone! Now I can play Spelunky for hours and hours instead of trying to make it work for hours and hours ( :/ )!

Not entirely. Someone else might have the same problem and find the answer here. BTW, which mode was it that worked? Full screen or windowed?
