Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

<3 *Updated* Black Screen Solution (Game Won't Start or Closes)
* UPDATED NOTE: *
I did not think this would still be so highly used, and have been lazy / busy with work. With the currrent sale and my love of RE I have no choice but to help. Add me if you want

I will try to respond and be better, possibly add screenshots if requested. <- ADDED <3
First I will tell you how to be able to play the game, then explain why it happened and history....

* UPDATED FIX: *



>>>>> SOLUTION # 1 ( MOST COMMON / START HERE PLEASE) <<<<<

>> MY GAME WON'T START AFTER INSTALLING / BLACK SCREEN EXITS GAME <<



This is all "Games For Windows Live" (GFWL) [Microsoft Xbox 360 on PC everyone hates]


## STEP 1 ##

WINDOWS 10 -> Right click the "Windows Icon", bottom left corner. click "Programs and Features"

WINDOWS 7/8 -> Click "Start Menu", select "Controll Panel", select "Add / Remove Program"

*-> Find and remove all " Microsoft Games for Windows... " (2/3 of them) programs you find.
*-> The " Installer " and " Updater " will not check for new versions, since you already have it installed



## STEP 2 ##

DOWNLOAD and INSTALL the NEWER -> http://www.xbox.com/en-US/Live/PC/DownloadClient

DIRECT DOWNLOAD LINK HERE (SAME FILE / SOURCE) -> go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=201134

*-> TRY TO START THE GAME



>>>>> SOLUTION # 2 ( SECOND MOST COMMON / OTHER PROBLEM )

>> MY GAME USED TO RUN AND WON'T START NOW / OTHER BLACK SCREEN <<

This is usually Display Settings conflict, aspect ratio changes and such


*-> Open " File Explorer " / " Windows Explorer " which ever flavor you have.

C:/Users/<YOUR USERNAME GOES HERE>/My Documents/CAPCOM/RERC

*-> Delete the file " Settings.dat " file <- Your Graphic / Display settings file for the game


*-> TRY TO START THE GAME


>>>>> BRIEF HISTORY AND WHY THIS HAPPENS <<<<<

This was at an early point when CAPCOM used to port Xbox 360 games for PC and started to notice us more as a group. Actually this was among the first games for PC they had released that had DLC support even.

Like many companies they fell victim to Microsofts very bad Games For Windows Live Marketplace, which is what the Xbox 360 used to manage Game Liscenses / Multiplayer Matchmaking / Paid DLC in Xbox 360 and later on PC.

GFWL is / was horrible and to blame, and had no place or purpose on PC.


***** DO NOT HATE ON CAPCOM > IT IS MICROSOFTS POOR SUPPORT *****

THE UPDATER FOR "GAMES FOR WINDOWS LIVE" DOESN"T EVEN UPDATE ANYTHING
IT ONLY CHECKS THAT IT IS INSTALLED ALREADY AND THEN DOESN"T BOTHER LOOKING

work for me, keep this thread up.
i love you noob
Totally works, thanks.
it works!
That's interesting, and glad that you've found a work around that could help others.
Maybe I'll look into it a bit myself, but so far mine works fine, even multiplayer.

I just noticed that GFWL won't update when any version is found, it doesn't check versions when installing, only that it's present.

If anyone else finds other solutions make them public, and happy to help.
To Capcom's credit though, I still support this game for being one of, if not the first of their ports to ever offer DLC and show more interest in PC gamers. Still disapointed to miss out on RE5 DLC and other of their games, ported or not. Here's hoping they're learning as they go and don't shun us like many game companies.

*ADD/EDIT* -> Capcom added the DLC to RE5 in a unique hybrid engine based off the Xbox 360 RE5 Gold code, which is actually quite impressive on a technical term & shows that they do support PC.

Thank you very much.This really works :D
thnks bro!! works for me!
It doesn't works for me. :-( I played and finished the game some time ago, and now i bought the expansions, but the game doesn't starts.
I have windows XP SP3, but nothing.
I changed "gfwlivesetup35.exe" for which I downloaded from the page you have set.
I also deleted the windows market live and redistributable and reinstall the new versions with the gfwl exe.
I installed windows essentials live and repair it.
When i click the exe to play the game it doesn't starts.
Does anyone know where lives the man who has made all this mess with games for windows live?
