Hi Ali,

This happens to you as soon as you start the game, or when you are loading level 1? It certainly looks like corrupt content. Have you tried deleting it and downloading again?
Adivanroot Feb 6, 2013 @ 11:03am 
I've re installed it like 10 times. And Tried even formatted my pc. (was going to do it anyways)

Installed it again and no. Not working. Installed on my work PC too. Same thing.

When I click play, this error shows up. Does not even goes black screen too :/;

Edit: Aftter you said "corrupt content" I've tried to check Local Files via Steam. Properties / File Check. Says 1 corrupt file everytime. Downloads everytime I check. And still does not open..

Can you open up your C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Party of Sin\bin and see if the Content.pak file is there? This seems like the most likely file to give you that exception. If it's not, we'll have to figure out how to make Steam give you that file (or maybe I can transfer it separately).

File is there. But still getting that error. Installation folder is:

(D:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Party of Sin\bin)

Content.Pak 230.164 KB

PS: SOrry for late answer. I was out of town for a while.

Looks correct, can you run the validation again then paste the contents of D:/Games/Steam/GameValidation.log? That should tell us which file is corrupt.

Same problem. Game never starts. Verify finds broken file, starts download. Download finishes in a second. Nothing changes. Content.pak is there. The missing file mentioned below is not in the Content directory.

Debug output from the launch:

Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Content.ContentLoadException: Error loading "GUI\POS_Theme". File not found. ---> System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Error loading "Content\GUI\POS_Theme.xnb". File not found.

Update: The problem is related to regional settings. The game does not start when the system's locale is set to Turkish. When the locale is set to English(US), everything's fine.
MechaMen  [developer] Feb 16, 2013 @ 7:02pm 
Turkish? We only support English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Russian.
Ishmaeel Feb 17, 2013 @ 12:19am 
I'm talking about regional settings in Windows.

hocam sorunu halledebildinizmi aynı sorun bendede varda
Adivanroot Mar 20, 2013 @ 2:54am 
Changed system locale to us and trying out asap. Was out of town for a while. Sorry for late answer.

Adamın dediği gibi Denetim Masasındaki bölgesel ayarlardan bütün Türkiye olarak gördüğüm Yerleri U.S. e çevirdim. Tekrar bi indiriyorum şu an. Birazdan yazarım sonucunu.

Update: Yes, now its working.. But DO I really have to change my OS regional settings to play a game? Never happened to me in my entire gaming experience :P And by entire, I mean even Atari 800 XL and older consoles too :)

Güncelleme: Evet sorun windowsun bölge ayarlarını değiştirince düzeldi. De bi oyun için hiç bi zaman böyle bişey yaptığımı hatırlamıyorum. Saçma olmuş biraz :)

The developer must solve this problem. When i want to play this game,i have to change my regional settings? This is a ridiculous situation... If this game made by a honest developer,it must be solved...
MechaMen  [developer] Aug 6, 2013 @ 5:52am 
We are working on a fix for this. We will let you know when it is ready.
MechaMen  [developer] Sep 7, 2013 @ 6:30pm 
A patch was just posted which should fix this issue!
Ishmaeel Sep 7, 2013 @ 10:55pm 
Awesome. Thanks for the fix. (gözümüz aydın kardeşler :)
