    Aveyond 3-3 News and Suggestions

    There MUST be squirrels. Quite honestly, that is what made me love this series. I was enjoying it, it was great fun, but when I walked into that cave in AV1, and there were actually militant squirrels?! Genius. Pure genius.

    Same problem, trying again...

    Kamiya solved the problem! It WAS a font...apparently she had the same problem... For whatever reason, Windows XP has every version of Arial BUT regular Arial. So I found a free version of the Arial font, arial32.exe or something, downloaded it, and now I'm running! Finished the hour demo, purchased the full game, and played for another hour or two... I love/hate you guys...now I'm not gonna have a life...but I'm gonna love playing this game. Thanks!

    Same problem, trying again...

    I'm baaaaack! I've finished my thesis project, I played Ahriman's Prophecy (loved that one, too) so now I REALLY want to play Aveyond 2... But I'm still having the same problem I had in February. I install the demo, "New Game", and dialogue boxes pop up but contain no text. I went back to the forum I started in February to try those instructions again...I went to the Windows website, updated my hardware. Restarted my computer. I downloaded the video card attached to the forum by whoever was helping me before. And then I installed Aveyond 2 and tried to play. Still no text. I did not update any software from the Windows website...I am not a tech genius, and my laptop is known for running slow if I try too much. So I thought I'd touchbase here before downloading too much. The four optional sotware downloads are: Update for Root Certificates Windows Search 4.0 for Windows XP (KB940157) Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0: x86 (KB829019) Microsoft .NET Framework version 1.1 None of them sounded particularly helpful, but let me know if I'm wrong, please. I want to support you guys, your games are fantastic...but I can't play them without dialogue. Help!

    Demo never works...

    ummm...okay. I went to the site, downloaded the latest service pack (6.0), plus another item that looked applicable. Then my computer started running REALLY SLOWLY, and I couldn't download the other link you attached. So...sadly, I'm giving up. Thank you for all your help, but I guess it's a sign that I need to be focusing on my senior thesis, and not Ean's Quest.

    Demo never works...

    okay...all my past downloads had already been uninstalled. I checked my fonts, and I have Arial and Tahoma in Word. I updated my system according the link attached, and I reinstalled from the attached link. Same results. I am on a Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) I ran DXDiag.exe, but I don't know where the video card is shown. Under "Display" the Device name is SiS M760GX, and the main Driver is SiSGRV.dll But if that's not it, I'll need a little more specific direction. Sorry, I'm not technologically minded.

    Demo never works...

    I have tried downloading the demo from every site I can find (I loved Rhen's Quest). But once it loads and I select "New Quest"...the game appears, I see the opening screen, and then dialogue boxes pop upto begin the story...but the boxes are empty. I see no text. I have to Ctrl+Alt+Del in order to exit, because there is no text in any menu, nothing. Plus, I haven't seen any topics with this problem. What's wrong?! I don't want to buy the game if the full version is going to have this problem, too!
