Given that last title I looked at.
I wonder if it was again one of those titles we discussed over the past week and in short was not ready for folk to download and game?
Even I felt I was either lucky or pulling from my days of programming (skillz?) to hack together that Ib game you mentioned.
Did you get Ib running? If not, I think you need to get that working first before we tackle another.
Also, what are the authors saying to you about this?
These games, all you have to do is download the games, find them in their folders and play them. Simple as that. They were playing for me until about a week ago. Now when i open them up, they're just blank screens and the game doesn't start. The authors can't help me with this problem. (At least, the ones I can get in contact with)
As I did help withthe Ib item.
And it came down to poor instructions on their and my part I will go try ONE of those and report back. The guinea pig machine is thankfully handy.
Ok, installed the first one
And it runs but asks for some code to activate. So that worked for me. I did have to find its home folder to see where it's game.exe was to run it again but it looks fine.
You've posted a lot but have ignored the words in red time and time again. Your choice on that.
Was it Hetaoni that you downloaded?
I think it was the first one. Pianodream.
Here's the words in red that you may have missed while posting.

You could be using some older PC with a 486 with a XP that has no patches for all I know. The office has this guinea pig laptop which is this one -> http://www.cnet.com/laptops/asus-vivobook-x202e-dh31t/4505-3121_7-35530760.html
That's not a high end machine and the few games I tried didn't seem to stress this at all.
As it stands, it's either you as a newer user of Windows or your computer.
I worry that you are new to PCs as you seemed to struggle to find folders and files.
I can find files without any problems
The problem is that when i open up the shortcut for the game, the window pops up but it never goes to the title screen. It just sits there in black. People have had discussions with pianodream about trying to fix there game, but she said that she would have to hack into our computers to do it, I'd rather not do that. I have an HP 2000 notebook PC that has Windows 8. My model number is: C2M44UA#ABA
That's pretty close to that guinea pig laptop I used to try this out.
HOWEVER the laptop I used is pretty stock. I'm left to guess if you installed something to break this.
Sorry, but the clues are just not here. It seems it should work but does not.
What is this about a hack? Most of those support folk just need to use remote access to look around. Even here you get to tell all since no one here will do remote access.
I think you may be right.
I think it may have been something that i've downloaded. I h ave no idea what it could be, but there's no other reason for those games to not be working. I would refresh my computer, but I just have too many things on here.
And I still couldn't get Ib running.
