Game crashes when I start it.
I've uninstalled and re-installed the bridge several times now and when I start it the same problem occurs. If I hit any key, the game crashes.

Is there anything else I need to uninstall besides the local files? This game looks awesome.

This is strange. Are you getting any error messages? I'm wondering if this is an issue with the installation of the prerequisites (.NET 4.0 and XNA 4.0) or the game itself. When you start it, does it show "The Bridge.exe" in the task manager?

A friend of mine is having the same problem. And yes, the game show itself in the task manager when it crashes. Any idea how to help him?

Ok fixed, he didn't have Windows Media Player installed.
Please mr Ty_Taylor fix this. I really want to play your game but i DON'T want WMP installed on my PC.

Unfortunately, The Bridge was written in XNA, meaning that WMP is absolutely required to play music. It's a Microsoft-made game engine, meaning they tie in strong dependencies to the Microsoft-made audio player.

Ok, you are excused because your game is freaking amazing! I'll buy asap even if i've to reinstall WMP :P

Sorry that it has taken so long. I do believe that the prerequisites are the problem.
When I first installed the bridge, I think I might have canceled the prerequisites in a way that made the game think they were installed when, in actualliy, they were not.

That should be an easy fix then. Try reinstalling them manually from these links:

It's okay if they're already installed on your computer. You won't hurt anything if you run these and they're already there.

Hmm, I installed both, then restarted my computer, and the game still crashed.

The way it crashes is this: I start the game, and it starts to run normally. Then, when I press any key, the game freezes, then crashes.

Oh interesting. That's good info...then it isn't the prerequisites at all. Can you hear the snoring or see anything on-screen (if you click "Play" in Steam then don't touch anything)?
DaLanimilbus 2013 年 3 月 4 日 6:12 PM 
I can hear the snoring and see the opening. it's only when I press a key that things go awrey. It seems that any key (including the windows key) will make it crash when I start it.
Ty_Taylor  [開發人員] 2013 年 3 月 4 日 8:09 PM 
Thanks for the info. This is the first time I'm seeing a bug like this so I'm not exactly sure what's wrong. Are you using any software that might be interacting with your keyboard in some way, such as Joy2Key or something similar? Or is there anything non-standard about your keyboard or computer configuration in some way? I'm just trying to understand what's different about your computer that's causing this.

There's no extra software to mess it up. I do have a 64 bit computer though, could that have anything to do with it?
Ty_Taylor  [開發人員] 2013 年 3 月 5 日 8:48 AM 
No, a 64 bit computer won't be causing this. I'm not able to reproduce this, so I think I'll need a bit more info from you before I can fix it. I'm not sure it is the act of pressing a key, or the act of pressing a key that does something which is causing it to break. The "z" key doesn't do anything in-game and definitely shouldn't cause the game to crash when pressed. When you press the "z" key only, does it crash?
DaLanimilbus 2013 年 3 月 5 日 9:07 AM 
Yes, the same thing happens when I only press z
Ty_Taylor  [開發人員] 2013 年 3 月 5 日 10:02 AM 
This sounds to me like an XNA bug, as I'm using XNA to handle all of the input. I think you might be able to fix this by first uninstalling The Bridge through Steam, then going to Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs, and then uninstall anything starting with "Microsoft XNA". Then try restarting your computer, and installing this: and then finally reinstalling The Bridge through Steam.

Does this fix the problem?
