I downloaded the Demo of Age of Ilathid, but when trying to start the game, I get this error...
"See the logfile 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Ilathid\prog\Ilathid.exe.log' for details"

When I look at the details of the Ilathid.exe log it shows these lines ....

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "Ilathid.pyw", line 11, in ?
File "enginemain.pyo", line 23, in mainloop
File "globals.pyo", line 108, in init
pygame.error: DDraw created surface with wrong size

Has anyone been able to run this demo?

Thanks,

Shorah gchaser,

Years ago when I was still living in the Windows world, I was able to get the demo to run just fine. It wouldn't surprise me if you are seeing problems related to the newer versions of Windows (though this is only a wild guess). Chances are fairly high that this game was designed for Windows XP.

Because newer versions of Windows have changed how they handle administrator rights, you might try installing the game in your Users area, in the Saved Games folder, where you will have full administrator rights by default.

BTW, I'm guessing this thread might be better off in the "Off Topic" section?

Thanks Ainia, I tried what you suggested and it gives me the same error. Must definitely be designed for the older WinXP OS.

Thanks....

Hello,
I just tried to play it on Windows seven 64, and it works.
The thing you should do is to launch it with administrator privileges
Regard
