[Bug] Crash on start up

Postby foregone96 » Sun Sep 30, 2012 9:22 pm

I was able to play the game for a few hours yesterday but when I quit the game and tried to restart it just hangs on a black screen until eventually a window pops up saying the program has stopped responding. After I quit I did move the game files. could that have caused the problem? I tried moving them back to the original folder but it won't work there either.

Re-extract your game file somewhere else and don t use your old shortcut.

What information does the pop-up give you? Could you post a screenshot?

Sounds like the game is trying to load a bugged prison. Clear out your preferneces and it will start a fresh

Go to your c:\users\(your user name)\appdata\local\introversion\prison architect\saves and delete everything there. That should work. If you dont see the appdata folder just type it in after the "" in the adress bar at the top.

That worked! Thanks for all the suggestions!
