Vegastrike and creating a launcher

Postby EKMA on Sat Feb 28, 2009 1:28 pm

I installed the game Vegastrike. Everything installed fine...I can run the game when I go to the folder where I installed it.

My problem is that if I try to create a launcher on the desktop, it looks as if it should work. The path on the launcher is to the same file I clicked before, but, what happens is that the screen resolution (desktop) will change to the games resolution and then freezes. I've been able to create launchers for other programs, but, this one doesn't want to work...any suggestions? Any more information someone might need to help me get through this?

Thanks in advance,

Cliff

This seems absurd, but if you've been into computers for some time you know that the absurd has a tendency to happen :shock:
Where is the game executive and what does your launcher look like ?

Husse,

Thanks for responding so quickly. I'll try to answer as best I can since I'm at work right now.

The Launcher is the one you create by right clicking on the desktop (you choose "Create Launcher" and then browse to the files location). The game executable is in the "Documents" folder (subfolder vegastrike/bin...or something like that). It's really weird....never had it happen to me before...hope this answers your question...if not, let me know.

Thanks

Installed in home?
Executables should not be in a Documents folder (unless home perhaps)
This can be something with your path if in home
