A quick run down.
first off I know that the a bunch of stuff doesn’t like the game, however my first step is simply getting the launcher to not instantly crash. I have done everything from updating redistributables, making the game file an exception. I can launch everything but HW2 manually, but I fail to see why that is impacting the launcher.
I have error messages from HW2 but if I launch the launcher it will not give me these errors, simply crash:
"Homeworld2.exe caused an Access Violation in module atioglxx.dll at 0023:5f461a05.
Error occurred at 5/22/2016 22:36:06.
Homeworld2.exe, run by kkfac.
Microsoft Windows XP?.
4 processor(s), type 586.
2048 MBytes physical memory.
Read from location 00000020 caused an access violation.
MiniDump failed to save."
Now, I remember reading about the atioglxx.dll file where I need to make the .dll into a .dl or something, but that file does not exist, nor does adding that file (from the people on steam who try and help)
I would really like to run it on my nice computer as I’m trying to help a modder and it always crashes after a while on my laptop.
