Just trying to get Constructor working for the first time in a while but getting this error on launch:
Not having any boot problems with any other games so don’t think it’s a permissions issue, I’ve tried using fresh copies of the game files but no luck.
Anyone came across this or know a fix?7. December 2021 at 0:04 #9269
I don’t have the game, so I can’t test, but does it work on Windows/Linux Dosbox on a PC?12. December 2021 at 0:10 #9278
I keep meaning to do this will come back to ya. I don’t think it’s an Android issue though, other games boot fine.
Off topic for this thread but could you check my post in your old Commandos Behind Enemy Lines thread if you haven’t noticed it? 😀12. December 2021 at 10:36 #9288
So yes, runs fine in DosBox on Windows, not sure why it’s throwing up this error in Magic, had it working in the past with no issues.
Files that work for it are available on Abandonia if you want to give it a go, they’re only like 30MB.12. December 2021 at 11:07 #9291
Have you requested the sd card permission from global settings? The game seems to be unable to write to the file system.
It should run fine out of the box, without even using expert commands. Have you tried to copy the working game files to your phone?12. December 2021 at 11:42 #9294
Yeah it’s all good, I’ve got 10+ DOS games working no issue and Win95 boots.
I’ve copied the files that are working in DosBox for Windows directly over but still the same issue. It seems to be a game-specific issue on Magic. I’ve tried 4 different versions of the game files (CD files, raw Dos files etc.) but all the same problem.12. December 2021 at 12:46 #9295
Mh, it’s working fine for me. I’ve created a new default profile, with no tweaks whatsoever, then simply picked the game’s exe under “main program”, and sndsetup.exe from the /music folder as “Setup”.
Configured sound using autodetect, then launched the game.12. December 2021 at 12:55 #9297
Hmm what’s causing my problem then, I’ll need to investigate further!
I’ll try starting it completely fresh with a new profile in Magic.
Don’t get hooked on it!12. December 2021 at 18:24 #9299
I’m pretty lost with this, not sure why my device (Samsung Tab A 10.1) is having this issue with this game. Worked about a year ago, weird.12. December 2021 at 23:55 #9301
Is there a way to get logs off Magic to see any more info on the error?13. December 2021 at 0:03 #9302
Not really. You can enable debugging in global settings, but I think it doesn’t do much.
Still very weird. Have you tried to launch the game from both internal and external storage?13. December 2021 at 0:13 #9303
Yes I tried that straight away thinking it was a permissions issue. Have tried different game files, fresh profile, internal/external storage, different root folders, moved SD permission to the exact game folder, moved Magic DosBox to SD card.
Nothing comes back from Google about that specific error in Dos, really odd, can only think it’s a Samsung issue? Need to test on another device.13. December 2021 at 0:20 #9304
Was just about to suggest the same. Any device should do, as this isn’t a Samsung bug in particular (I’m using a Galaxy S9+).13. December 2021 at 0:28 #9305
Same issue on my A52s, completely fresh DosBox install.
Did you use the Abandonia files? What Android version are you on?13. December 2021 at 0:31 #9306
Yes, and I’m on Android 10.
