    Default A bit of Tech help.

    Hey,

    I'm trying to install my JK3 on my new PC, but every time I upgrade to patch 1.01 I get this error when I load the game.

    VM_Create on UI failed

    ------- sound initialization -------
    Initializing DirectSound
    - using ancient version of DirectX -- this will slow FPS
    locked hardware. ok
    ----- Sound Info -----

    Any ideas where it's going wrong, or more importantly how to fix it? Any help would be appreciated!

    It says it failed to load a dll file so make sure you have EaxMan.dll IFC22.dll jagamex86.dll and OpenAL32.dll in your gamedata folder

    I know I've had this problem in the past but can never remember how to fix it exactly. I hope you get it to work :p

    also if it keeps saying vm_create failed again you gotta run the program as an admin.

    That's why I bought the game on steam, no problemos.

    Reinstall should help, if nothing else does.
    I had that problem before and just reinstalled JK3.

    Cheers,

    I've reinstalled three or four times to no effect.

    All of the dll's appear to be there.

    It only seems to occur when I install the 1.01 JK3 patch. The problem is I'm fairly sure it replaces files in gamedata, so it means I have to uninstall and reinstall instead of simply removing the files.

    It could be partly an admin problem as for some reason the computer asks me permission to run things as admin, rather than just default runs it as admin, and I get no notices. I'll try it out, but it's looking pretty grim :/. Cheers for the help so far people!
