problems after upgrading to 1.1b4

Postby threecee » Wed Sep 22, 2010 10:24 pm

ok so i had the regular 1.0 SG game and wanted to upgrade to 1.1b4 so i downloaded it. it downloaded to my document folder. from there i took the files and put them in the original SG folder thats in my C/program files. now when i play i can access the 1.1b4 content however no matter where or what im playing when i turn my toon in a certain direction the screen goes crazy and i can see like 20 shadows of my gun if you will like a trail. and i can see through the walls. did i do something wrong installing or is this a common issue. sure makes it hard for me to play :)

Can you try another windows binary from the sparcdr site ? The one provided with the release is from http://wmd.game-host.org/smokin-guns-or ... msvcx/x86/

Try the one from http://wmd.game-host.org/smokin-guns-or ... msvc9/x86/ or some other.

Thanks

Sorry, I did not check links.
Assuming you're on Windows and a somewhat new PC, download the correct file http://smokinguns.sparcdr.org/downloads ... in-x86.zip

Make a backup of the existing smokinguns.exe in C:\Program files\ (just rename or move it elsewhere), then put the one from the downloaded zip into its place.

Everything you need should be at this link:
http://www.moddb.com/games/smokin-guns/ ... 1b4-update
Look at how 1.0 is installed then look at what is in the 1.1b4 zip file. Move the files from the zip to the appropriate places in your 1.0 installation. Since you're not a noob it shouldn't be too hard to figure out if you take your time. :wink:

If you still have a graphics problem after this, try a new .exe
