Resident Evil - Windows XP
Posted 06 November 2006 - 03:38 AM
I tried installing Resident Evil a few weeks ago, but it didn't work. It kept crashing on the install screen. Anyway, after that happened, I did a bit of research on the internet and found out how to resolve this. It installed properly but when I start a new game (or load an old one for that matter) it plays at like 42fps on average. Now this is way too fast, the Hunters decapitate me and I don't even see it coming, not to mention the zombies run like they're Cathy Freeman on super steroids.
Is there any way to resolve this problem? I'd like to play it on a better computer than the one in my bedroom (that one gives minorly corrupted graphics and is choppy at times).
Thanks in advance,

I'm not an expert on gaming, but, are you by any chance and dualcore computer? Cause SA had this same problem with dual core processors. Correct me if I'm wrong please.
People complaining about games running too fast, and I'm here complaining about my videocard running games too slow...

But thanks for the suggestions. I'll try them when I get home.

so in short you could try the same settings as me since I might have had the same speed problem and now I don't
residentevil.exe, launcher.exe, checker.exe compatibility tab: only win 95 compatibility
Videocard: Intergraph intense 640 480(only option)(I remember I also could choose 320 240 before, now it's gone)
Install: 346 MB(full or recommended I guess)
and if those same settings don't work there are only 2 things I can think of, which are:
1. a reboot(my computer is always on, but I needed a few reboots after RE got stuck)
2. switching between tv out and monitor(the tv makes RE look like it does on the playstation and that really looks better because the monitor is too sharp, maybe I lost my fast speed on the tv)
oh a 3rd thing, since my nemesis also didn't work at first the dxdiag soundtab is now on "no acceleration"
Good luck ^-^

which tells you exactly what to do, except, when it says "Just apply the compability mode on the "Setup.exe" and "Launch.exe" files and run the "setup.exe". When the red screen appear, click "alt + f4" and install the game.", "Just apply the compatability Mode" is refering to the Microsoft Compability Wizard, instructions found on the following link, http://www.microsoft.../appcompat.mspx
That Wizard from Microsoft is pretty amazing. When it says about Graphics, like how many colours and the pixles on the compability wizard, don't select anything, just click next.
Firstly put the disk in, and go on the compatability wizard, then select the CD Drive, It will start up with some random red screen. If nothing happens try Alt + F4 that got the installer up for me. Then install it. You can't run it from the start menu, it just dosn't like it, so run the CD After installation to play it, but you need to use the compatability wizard every time and the Disk.
The only thing that dosn't work is as shown on the first link at the bottom of the forum, When playing as Jill, at the start when you go through the dining room, and kill the first zombie, when you return to wesker or barry or whoever is investigating the blood, the same zombie comes through, and then it just freezes. Killing the zombie dosn't effect this, because either way, the same video is played. I need to resolve this urgently, because it is practically impossible to play as chris!!!, I just need to get the first zombie killed as chris, then I can get jill's gun from the entrance hall, but that in inself is pretty tricky!!!

i fixed the problem with the scene of first zombie , and now it works great!
I had the same problem as many of you with the game locking up after Barry shoots the 1st zombie. Hopefully, this workaround will help you:
1. Leave the DINING ROOM when Jill first enters with Barry.
2. When you go back in, try to exit again and Barry will make a comment.
3. Then walk up and talk to Barry.
4. Next, walk past the clock and a different cut-scene takes place
(From http://www.ntcompati...nt_t34556.html). On this thread it also explains a possible way to sort out the fast forward weirdness of the game. On PS1 everyone walked everywhere in the videos, like in the first scene, but on XP everyone practically runs everywhere during videos. This isn't too much of a problem, and the fix on the above link is not tested on XP as stated.
I havent tried this yet

go under properties,and go under compatabilities in your Resident Evil CD.
switch it all the Resident Evil exe files to windows 95.
now it will work.
as for the game funning way too fast, just run windows media player while playing the game.
