Default Xenus 2 QRE problem

April 8th, 2011, 18:28
Hi everyone. I'm giangra and I'm italian so excuse me if I do not use English properly
I'm a huge fan of the Xenus series and Precursors and I would like to make a translation of the game (Xenus 2: White Gold) in my language.
I have the Gamersgate version of the game and i read this post (http://www.rpgwatch.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12405) so I tried to install the resource editor but I can't start it because it appears the error that the program has stopped working. Could someone explain to me how I can fix this error?
Thanks for your time!

This could be due to the copy protection. As far as I know the original game and the editor use Starforce, but the GamersGate version may use something else. Look around the web a bit and you might find a way to make the editor think that your GamersGate version is the original one

the gamersgate/Game Factory Interative version uses a cracked nocd from a release group so it's unlikely they have any copyprotection

As far as I know the 1.1 version of the English releases will use some kind of DRM but I don't know if it is compatiblke to the editor. Also I don't think there will ever be another editor so you need to find some kind of emulation to help you out with the old DRM

Yes as wesp5 has said, to get QRE running you'll need to get a copy of the game working with the original 1.1 patch from Deep Shadows (which has starforce compiled into the dll's), and for me that means using daemon tools to mount a pirated image unfortunately.

I've extracted the existing Italian strings from the resource file for you (see the link below); there are quite a few already done but many more that aren't - you might need a team of translators!

Just a hint, you don't need the complete game when you already have the GamersGate version. Search for miniimages…
