How can I run Median in Windows 7?

Post by josman96 on Wed Nov 14, 2012 8:42 pm

Hi guys.

I was a Median fan. I say I was because since I got Windows 7 I cannot enter my saved games anymore. I switched the compatibility of Dablo II.exe and PlugY to Windows XP SP3, and nothing.

I have the 1.13 patch, PlugY 10.0 and Median 005 installed. My laptop is a Lenovo with Core i7 and 4 GB video ram. The problem starts after I chose a character (old or new). It appears an error message and the screen goes black and exits the program. Don't know if it is a Median issue or a incompatibility problem.

Recently I downloaded a spanish version and it runs normal.

Please help me. I don't wanna stop playing Median and not losing my characters.

That issue is with the theme. Rightclick your link and disable desktop themes, as well as grant full admin privilages. If u still have issues, run in xp compatible mode. If those stikk dont work, no idea.

I have Admin issues at full.

After I click the .exe, first it changes the colors to the basic pallette, and after that changes the resolution (it displays messages for it), the screen turns black and loads the game. NOthing too unusual I guess.

And the error message after I pick a character and the game freezes says:

Halt
Location:, line#2016
Expression: unrecoverable internal error 6fdb4012

I must press OK in this window and then appears another error message:

UNHANDLED EXCEPTION
Unknown exception (e06d7363)

After I press OK in this last window the game closes.

Any suggestion for this?

Try re-downloading and re-installing median.

What graphics settings are you using for the game?
Glide, D3D or DDraw?

After executing the VidTest the best suited for my card was Direct3d: Intel Graphics 3000.

Anyways I tried Direct2D and neither one of them works. It appears the same error.

If you want windows 7 to run more like Windows XP, and not more like Vista, follow these steps.

Disable DEP
1. Press start and search for "cmd"
2. Right click "Run as Administrator" **IMPORTANT**
3. Type in this command (case sensitive)
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff
4. Should say that is was done successfully. So restart computer.

Disable UAC
1. Press start and click on your icon (at the top of the start menu).
2. Open "Change User Account Control Settings".
3. Bring the slider all the way down to "Never Notify".
4. Restart computer

Now your computer will never ask you for permission when you open a program. I find it much more pleasant to use the computer without all these messages coming up.

Do if you want, if not, then don't Wink
