Solutions
  • Q: I get an error during the installation that says: 'An error has occurred while trying to replace the existing file: DeleteFile failed; code 5. Access is denied.' or 'Error creating registry key: -//- RegCreateKeyEx failed; code 5. Access is denied.' or 'Out of system resources.'
  • A: Reboot your PC, then start the installation again.

  • Q: Nothing happens when I start the game, i.e. it crashes immediately.
  • Q: When I enable the widescreen resolution the cmd window gets full of red messages.
  • A: You need to install/update '.NET Framework 3.5'. On Windows 7 and later this component installs automatically, but if this didn't happen, follow the steps:

    1. Press 'Windows Logo' + 'R' keys on the keyboard.
    2. Type 'appwiz.cpl' in the 'Run' command box and press 'ENTER'.
    3. In the 'Programs and Features' window, click on the link 'Turn Windows features on or off'.
    4. Check if the '.NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)' option is available in it.
    5. If yes, then enable it and then click on 'OK'.
    6. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation and restart the computer, if prompted.

  • Q: When I launch the game I get an error: '0xc0000022'.
  • A: You need to do the same steps as in previous Q&A, but instead of the step 4 you need to check 'DirectPlay' under 'Legacy Components'.

  • Q: I have a multiple monitor system and experience problems with enabling the widesceen resolution.
  • A: Enable it through the 'Manual Mode' and enter the resolution of your primary monitor, i.e. the monitor you want to play the game on.

  • Q: I’ve enabled the widescreen resolution but it doesn't seem to work in main menu.
  • A: Custom resolution affects only the gameplay, main menu will be always in 800x600.

  • Q: I cannot connect to host in multiplayer with this patch installed.
  • A: Try to reinstall the patch with unchecked 'Enable Windows XP compatibility mode' option.

  • Q: Why Steam Overlay doesn't show up while playing the game?
  • A: The game uses DirectDraw for graphics rendering. Steam Overlay works only in DirectX games.

  • Q: Is there a way to use the original music instead of the new one?
  • A: The original music is a one 30 minutes music file with fixed order of tracks. Every time you will play the game, you will hear the same tracks in the same order. If your match will be more than 30 minutes, you will not hear music until the match ends. The new music is devoid of these shortcomings.

  • Q: When I play vanilla game or patched, the gameplay stops/freezes, but music still continues to play. It stays like this for about 10-20 seconds then it returns to normal. It happens very often.
  • A: If you have a CD/DVD drive, you need to insert a disk into it, no matter which. For some reason, the game checks for a disc in the optical drive on some system configurations.

That was exactly what I was saying, I just purchased the game on Steam and it actually works now, I wanted to know if you knew the files to download to run the game via CD.

@SRT1
So, how do you want to install the patch if you have only half of the game? Even if you will can install the patch, the game will not work either.

When I originally installed SWGB it only installed part of the files, I can't finish installing your patch because it says the game isn't installed, I can't finish installing the rest of the game because it says it's already installed. And uninstalling the game just seems difficult.

Just tested, the patch installed on CD version without any problems.

Trying to install on CD, won't install, or uninstall; only part of files installed.

Thanks.

When you are installing the patch, there is an option on the final step.

I don't have a mouse cursor while playing the game.
I can select units bij dragging, and click items, just the cursor isn't visible.
Also don't see a menu option to disable/change the cursor option? Any fix or suggestions for this problem?
