Game not starting


#1

ok so whenever i try to boot the game up it shows me an error that i dont have a bass.dll file. Any help?


#2

Wait a sec pls… Ok, try to reinstall the game, backing up ProgrammData\CIU folder. I could send you my bass.dll, but I don’t think this will work properly. This file is in the game folder.


#3

ok. How do i access the files?


#4

You need to open explorer, than put C:\ProgramData\ in line at the top of window(path) and go to InterAction studios folder. There will be CIU folder you need to save.


#5

That is, file explorer, the place with all your documents, not Internet Explorer, the browſer web developers have to add a bunch of code to ſupport.


#6

Just re-install the game on top of your existing installation. Your progress will be preserved.


#7

I did it, and it still didnt work.


#8

It’s strange. Maybe your antivirus blocks this dll? Try to disable it and reinstall again.


#9

before i didnt disable it and the game installed fine.


#10

Well, I have no idea. You mean previous versions or v7.1?


#11

version 7.1


#12

I have no idea. Check your game folder (Program Files(x86)\ChickenInvadersUniverse by default). If bass.dll is here, it will be the strangest thing I ever seen. I could make .zip with my game files this morning. Maybe it will help, idk. If this will not help, we will call iA anyway


#13

i checked the folder. No bass.dll there.


#14

That means that something is killing it. Try to disable antivirus anyway, maybe there is a new database and now it kills CIU. That could explain why CIU worked fine before


#15

i disabled it. Still nothing.


#16

Ok, @InterAction_studios, your suggestions?


#17

guess im gonna go with plan B: Downloading the bass.dll file individually.
what version does the game use?


#18

Idk, but i’m sure any file could be used so I will post mine later.


#19

Not sure why BASS.dll is disappearing.

You can download it separately from here: http://www.un4seen.com/download.php?bass24

Downloaded, then put the files in the CIU folder. It now functions properly. Thanks!
