Hi all -
Just a brief note. Glad to see most people are enjoying Painkiller
For those of you that are still having problems getting it running a CD Quick fix has been posted here:http://www.painkillergame.com/media/PK_CD_Fix.zip
A couple of quick comments on it:
- Included in this .zip file is an installable fix for improving the CD dialogues coming up when running Painkiller.
- This fix does not change anything significant with the game itself, but focuses on making the dialogues clearer so as to make sure people with any CD problems are given a clear indication of what the problem might be (i.e. running off the wrong CD or having some background emulation software running) by eliminating the vagueness of "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc00000142)" error.
- Since launch we have handled hundreds of calls and emails on general CD or start-up issues and thus far have found few people that can not get Painkiller running fine. Most are due to older computers or video cards. However, I would encourage anyone having start-up issues to grab the quick fix and try it.
- We are still in development and testing of a 1.1 update to Painkiller, which should be available soon. It will feature minimally 1 new multiplayer map, several enhancements to multiplayer including demo recording, voting, spectator mode, better respawning variance, among other things. Also expect fixes for a few known exploits and single player bugs. The changes incorporated in the quickfix will be included in the 1.1 update as well.
