Is this Possible?

Postby Skye » Tue Feb 21, 2006 1:05 am

Hi All,

My beta testers are grumbling a lot about the problems with a 'dead computer' syndrome when they double click to start the game.

I guess because of the size of the game and the amount of scripting that needs to load, the computer goes into a "dead" state where there is NO hourglass and no indication that the hard drive is accessing (light does not flicker). Because of this, players often think the computer is locked or they click on the start game icon again.

Is there a way to use a mini AM exe that would load a 'start up' screen; something to tell the players to be patient and wait, that the game is in fact loading and have this mini exe call the game executable?

I thought if this is possible I could include some sort of animation to show that the computer has not locked or frozen, it just takes time for the game to load.

Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.
