Sam & Max 101: Culture Shock
juanpabloforero May 19, 2013 @ 5:11pm
HERES A SOLUTION THAT MIGHT WORK for those having problems to run Sam And Max culture shock or any other chapter?
Everytime I tried to open the game, I heard the music but the image was all crazy, like closing and opening, don´t know how to explain it, but the game did not work. I wrote to tellgames a week ago, but no answer. I was trying to play Syberia and the exe just failed. Then I saw THE SOLUTION in a Syberia forum: It was very simple, just lower your resolution screen (try different ones until it works) and thats it, Sam and Max and Syberia worked just fine. Hope that helps.

I can't do that, seeing as I'm using a 36" TV via HDMI. I can't scale down on Windows 8.

Im using a 32 " TV via HDMI but on windows 7 and I have no problem, I don´t know why you cant lower resolution, is odd. Search in google something like, I have a a 36" inch and cannot lower resolution on windows 8. See this just in case, maybe it could help you, I don´t know if they show a better way: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/change-your-screen-resolution
You should be able to lower resolution, try something like 1680x1050, in that resolution Syberia runs well. If not, write me again and we look together a way to help you.

I was still unable to lower the resolution (it seems Windows 8 only supports an HD resolution via HDMI), but I was able to work around the issue with an executable that I downloaded. There's a post about 1080p that I posted in recently where I recount exactly what I did and what issues are still around.

All in all, I can play the game now in 1920x1080 on Windows 8, with only the small detail that I can't save or change any settings (game freezes when I do), but it's not that big of a deal since the game autosaves a lot anyway. Of course, this is only for the first two seasons - The Devil's Playhouse is completely compatible the way it is. :)

Thats great, I´m glad you manage to do it. You should write to tellgames to tell you your problem, or to Steam (better to steam, telltales doesn´t answer) and tell them if they can help you because its terrible not been able to save. Anyway, great you could do it ;)

Awesome, thanks. :) I just got into the second season now, and apparently all of the problems I had with the first season are fixed. I'm not sure if using the exe was necessary, but I still used it for all of the episodes just to be safe.

Happy gaming, and I'm glad your workaround worked for you! :)

Thank a lot, and I´m glad second season is working. By the way, as I can see you like adventure games. You should check this page: http://www.adventuregamers.com/articles/view/18643

Some of those you can find it free in The Pirate bay, some of them you can buy them in Steam, some of them you can buy them in the same page. There are some good ones. Take care.
