Hi Mareron, sorry for the delay.

Can you try just running program files/determinance/determinance.exe?

Thanks,
Ian

Hi,

i tried... and the same things happen (just without the launcher) could it be that it's because i got the German version? or something like that??
and i'm working in xp if that helps...

ok cool i found your post.

try going to start/settings/controlpanel. go to windows firewall and hit the exception list go to add program and browse for your determinance.exe

also if you have a router you will want to find out how to configure your router and port foward the settings so the program wont be blocked.

also i think the irc channel is down so no one will talk and i dont even know if the people who were in the room besides omroth is actually real. and the servers now dont even have bots to fight against =(

people should be informed about this if the game is still selling. because honestly i didnt know

maybe if they would release a free version for people to mess with the community would be bigger

oh on my desktop pc i had a radeon 9550/x1050 but it wouldnt run the game it would crash i think my screen would actually go black and if i quit the game i would get a blue screen i dont know if the 9600 runs in the same family as mine i would think so. i actually downgraded to a nvidia 5200 and it doesnt crash anymore. but i mostly play on a laptop because my computer doesnt have the process power to run most games
pentium 3 999mhz 612 megs of ram

i would say if you could get yours working i would duel ya

i guess there might be a difference in the German version than US version

i still dont see why your screen turns black and you get the cannot connect to server unless there is some firewall blocking
