Toribash crashes to desktop immediately on startup?

I've heard good things about Toribash. Unfortunately clicking on the icon flashes a window quickly, then nothing, just desktop again. Have you experienced this before? I'm running an Intel 82852 video card (stock laptop) on a P1.8GHz laptop, 1 GB RAM. DirectX 9.0c.

Hi tlr,

What error message do you get in stderr.txt located in your toribash directory.

Cheers,

Unable to open audio: DirectSoundCreate: No audio device found


DOH! Guess I've gotta plug in my soundcard Thanks for the help!

Is it possible to disable sound? I'm having problems with my sound card drivers, and can't get past the above stderr message.

I made two sound fixes in the new beta http://www.toribash.com/Toribash-Beta-Setup.exe

- If sound initialization failes it disables sound and continues instead of exiting.
- added a -nosound switch (toribash.exe -nosound)

misc changes:
- clearer colors in bout queue (was hard to see on some comp)
- in single player stepping with no player selected will stop after 10 steps and ghost both players.

Plz let me know if it works.

Cheers,
Hampa
