Ghost Pirates and Vampyre Story won’t run
I’m trying to play Ghost Pirates of voojoo island, the developer who also made vampyre story which uses the same engine. I can’t get either game to run. I start the game, and main.exe just sitsi n task manager and the game never shows itself
I’ve tried disabling cores, disbaling antovirus, disabling antialiasing, changing resolution, windowed mode, turning off hyperthreading, I’m running out of things to try!
i had the same issue…
i can not remember what i did with Vampyre Story to Run it Correctly but as i just replayed Ghost pirates recently, here what i think you should do:
in the installation folder of Ghost Pirates don’t run Main.exe, just Run config.exe ;
disable Antialiasing and start the game from there.
maybe (as i remember) you will need to save settings before Clicking start game and if that didn’t work and the and you get a Main.exe crashing to Desktop (Windows Report) you should try using the windowed mode.
I have tried both windowed mode and no antialiasing and I pushed save, and neither worked
I GOT IT TO WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had the same issue, and found the answer here:

So, for those having problems try renaming “libpandadx9.dll” to “libpandadx9.dll2” or whatever.
Start up the game and at the main menu put the anti-alias down to “0.”
Turn off the game.
rename “libpandadx9.dll2” back to “libpandadx9.dll”
Start the game.
My solution was a variation of this, instead of renaming the file, opening game to turn off antialiasing, then renaming the file back, I had to rename the file and then I was good (did not have to adjust antialiasing then rename file back)
If I set AA to 0 then rename the file back, the game wont start again (this dll prevents game from running for me). So I think I dont have AA. but at least the game works. Well I have AA on but the file renamed, so Im not sure if that file gives me AA or what. Vampire story has the same problems- changing the AA then REnaming the file back as the instructions say cause the game to stop starting again, so I have to keep that file renamed/deleted
Well now I have a new issue. Soon as I start the game, and push new game, it skips the bink videos and goes straight to the first ingame cutscene. Any ideas on this new issue? I can play the bink files with bink video tools fine. I DID install the directx that game with the game
vampyre diaries cutscenes are skipping too!
I really dont care about the first problem anymore, just help me get the cutscenes working so I can play the darn game now
Both game’s bink cutscenes are skipped. I installed the directx 9 that came with both games. The videos play fine in bink player. I really hope the cutscenes have nothing to do with the file that is now renamed. As a LAST resort I could watch the cutscenes OUT of the game, if I knew what order they were supposed to go in, but thats a lame solution
So please help with cutscene now
I have been trying to solve this issue with the publisher over here http://forum.dtp-entertainment.com/viewtopic.php?f=201&t=20713&p=197229&sid=75d8fd95d5ab2377b711e6f775a1ac95#p197229
if anyone has any input
