A-10 II Unexpected Error

Post by zkconover » Sat Mar 08, 2014 8:26 pm

Hey, I installed a-10 using the sierra update for newer systems, trying to run it on windows 7. It plays the intro, and goes to the menu, but when i start a mission it tells me "Unexpected Error" and quits. Any ideas? I've tried running as administrator. Really loved this game as a kid and would like to play it.

The only thing that I see is the config file is
quite a bit different than the one that should have been installed by the installer. Did you replace any of the files?

No i haven't changed any files. Any idea what could cause this, or how to fix it? I've tried redownloading/installing the game. It all works right up until i try to start a mission.

Try replacing the config files with the ones in the zip. If this does not work, look in your uninstall list to see if there is a "A10SHELL.EXE custom database" listed.

Okay thanks, I tried replacing the global and local files with the ones in the zip, and now I'm not getting the error, however its still closing out the game exactly like it had before. I see an A10SHELL application, not sure what to do with it though. When i start a mission in it it says unable to start correctly 0xc0000142 and closes out. There is another application A10SIM, which takes me into what i assume is a demo mission, this works perfectly.

I suspect that the patch is not being applied, perhaps because of your UAC being on. I have a new version of the installer uploaded that handles the patch in a different way that will probably have fewer problems with UAC. Give it a try.

I'm having similar issues to the guy in this thread. I do have that custom database thing in my uninstall list (and it won't uninstall). Does that mean something?

If it cannot uninstall it is probably not installed, meaning that you are not getting the benefit of the compatibility patch. You could try reinstalling it.

I'm seeing a similar problem to what's been mentioned before; running into the same errors.
I've reinstalled at least once, but still much of the same issues.

Any help is appreciated.

It looks like that you are missing a few *.dat files. Your copy is from the Aces Collection Series?

Nope, just the A-10 II game directly, but I couldn't get the installer for just A-10 II to function with my disc
