Application load error 5 dungeon siege - suggest you

STEAM
When I tried to start up the game it came up with some error saying this wasn't compatible with my OS, but I just pressed run program. I made my character, and got a bit into the opening cutscene when a box popped up and said "Exception detected" and said it may take a few minutes to complete. Then it went away, the man in the cutscene said a few more words and then the game crashed. Did this happen because I ran the game instead of searching for a fix or is this a common problem? I'm running Vista HP.

Please note that while this document is based on the Steam version (combined with Killah's fix), I did my best to accommodate retail users and those not using LOA. Some steps may be different and a few issues may not happen on the retail version.

Add the game on GameRanger

Method 1:

  1. Download the reg patch and run it from <path-to-game> (select option 3).

  2. In GameRanger, hit "Edit -> Options -> Games -> Dungeon Siege -> Browse" then select "sprers.eu" (the executable must be named "sprers.eu" for LOA) from Program Files:

    GameRanger

Method 2:

  1. Download and run Symlinker (click on "Download Standalone Executable"). It's a front-end for the mklink command.

  2. In Symlinker, make a directory junction to your game directory in Program Files:

    Symlinker

  3. In GameRanger, hit "Edit -> Options -> Games -> Dungeon Siege -> Browse" then select "sprers.eu" (the executable must be named "sprers.eu" for LOA) from Program Files:

    GameRanger

Note: to change the game resolution, see method 1 or 3 of Use unsupported resolutions.

Capture the game with OBS

I discovered a special trick to capture the game's window while playing fullscreen (without using desktop capture).

  1. Run the game windowed.
  2. Add a window capture in OBS and select DS (stretch it to fullscreen if you want).
  3. Close DS and remove the launch parameter so it runs fullscreen.
  4. Run the game again, OBS will still capture it.

If you're not playing at your native resolution, just make sure you don't alt-tab otherwise it'll fit only part of the screen! If you have to alt-tab, you can either go back to the main menu and load your saved game, or add a Crop/Pad filter (relative) on your window capture to remove the black borders.

If the game is not captured or listed in the drop-down menu at all, then I'd say you're either running the game in compatibility mode or as admin (OBS can't see processes with compatibility modes and won't list admin processes unless it's also run as admin). If it's not the case, then you're on a system with an integrated GPU and a dedicated GPU (like a laptop) and you may have to run the game on the same GPU that OBS is using.

Note: it also works with other games, as long as they're using DX9 (or older) or OpenGL.

Change the FOV

Hex-edit the game's executable.

Convert DS saves to LOA

After installing LOA, you won't be able to load your DS saved games. You need to add a flag in each saved game for LOA to recognize your DS saved game by performing both steps below:

Decompile the save:

  1. Download and run Tank Viewer.
  2. Click on Open, navigate to "<path-to-docs>\Save" and select your save.
  3. Click on Extract and select a folder (preferably empty) where to extract the files.
  4. Open the "sprers.eu" file with a text editor.
  5. Right below the line starting with "is_auto_save", add another line "is_dsx = true;".
  6. Save the file.

Recompile the save:

  1. Download and run Tank Creator.
  2. Click on Source and select the folder where you decompiled the files earlier.
  3. Click on Output, select "<path-to-docs-LOA>\Save" and make sure the file has a DSSAVE extension.
  4. Select "DS & LOA" under Format.
  5. Click on Create (if nothing happens, see Tank Creator doesn't work).

You should now be able to load your save in LOA. The inventory of your mules may become glitched though (see Packmule inventory is inaccessible).

Source: sprers.eu

Enable EAX

  1. Download dsoal.
  2. Extract sprers.eu and sprers.eu to <path-to-game>.
  3. Run the game and enable EAX in the options.

Enable LOA + Extras

Follow the instructions from Killah's guide.

Enable MP

If Windows doesn't detect that the game needs DirectPlay (when clicking on Multiplayer), go to Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Turn Windows features on or off -> Legacy Components -> Enable DirectPlay.

Note: this only applies to Windows 7 or later.

HD textures

There are currently two HD textures packs available.

The first one (recommended) is a set of upscaled textures (based on the original) using ESRGAN by Antrad

The second one is a set of textures from the Legendary Mod (a DS2 mod that ports DS1 content over the DS2 engine) ripped by Eksevis.

Note: it seems to work fine on all custom campaigns and doesn't bloat saves (only tested in The Lands of Hyperborea and the Ultima remakes).

Increase shadow resolution

Open "<path-to-game>\system_sprers.eu" and change the 10 occurrences of "shadow_tex_size = 64" to /// You can do a search and replace on "= 64".

Note: and above can be VERY taxing in forests when using the "All complex" setting (in that case, switch to "Party complex"). Values higher than may prevent the game from loading.

Increase UI size

If you play the game at higher resolutions (like p), the UI won't scale and will become tiny. There is a workaround that involves rendering the game at a specific resolution and the UI at a lower resolution (effectively making it bigger):

  1. Download the latest version of dgVoodoo2.
  2. Open the downloaded archive and extract sprers.eu, sprers.eu and all files from the "MS\x86" subfolder (except sprers.eu) to <path-to-game>.
  3. Run sprers.eu, go to the DirectX tab, select your native resolution from the Resolution drop down list and hit OK.
  4. Set the game at the resolution you want the UI to be scaled to, typically p or lower (see Use unsupported resolutions).

You may encounter two issues when using dgVoodoo2:

  • if your game crashes at launch or slows down when moving the mouse, disable third-party overlays and frame limiters.
  • if you see a Windows cursor flicker in the middle of your screen, just tab out and tab back in.

Note: these instructions won't work while running the game in windowed mode.

Install Mageworld, The Lands of Hyperborea and the Ultima 5/6 remakes on the Steam version

Normally, the Ultima remakes are meant for the retail version, but some people made guides to make them work on the Steam version:

I made some drag-and-drop archives if you want to skip the installation guide above:

For the other mods, just ignore the above and download these archives:

Please follow these steps for each mod to make sure everything is working properly:

  1. Extract the archive to your DS folder.
  2. Edit the provided BAT file with your desired resolution.
  3. Copy the content of <path-to-docs> to the "<path-to-game>\<mod-name>\User\Save" subfolder prior to running the mod (if you'd like to keep your key bindings and game preferences).
  4. Run the mod with the BAT file (you can also replicate its arguments in a shortcut or Steam launch options).
  5. Saved games will be located under the "<path-to-game>\<mod-name>\User\Save" subfolder (to avoid overriding saves from the main game).

Note: all of these mods are NOT compatible with LOA. Please refer to their respective readme files for further issues.

Play borderless fullscreen

There are multiple programs that allow games to run borderless fullscreen (you can find an exhaustive list here), however for the sake of simplicity, we'll only cover one of them here.

  1. Download Fullscreenizer and run it.
  2. Run the game in windowed mode.
  3. Switch back to Fullscreenizer.
  4. If the game doesn't appear in the list, click on "Show All", select "Dungeon Siege" and click on "Add".
  5. Select the game in the list and press the Fullscreenize button (or use your hotkey combination), preferably after loading a game (see note below).

Note: the main menu UI has a fixed resolution and will be broken, repeat step 5 again to make the game windowed again. The game may randomly freeze when switching windowed modes so try to avoid it.

Play MP

Run the game with the "zonematch=true" launch parameter to directly boot into the MP menu (not necessary if you're using the retail version or Killah's fix).

Play MP map in SP

Install one of these mods:

Play windowed

Add the "fullscreen=false" launch parameter (see the following instructions for shortcuts, Steam or GOG Galaxy) or in the config file (see method 3 of Use unsupported resolutions).

Play Yesterhaven map in SP

I made a drag-and-drop archive from Father Bronze's Yesterhaven Single-Player Edition so you won't have to worry about resources conflicting with each other.

Just extract it to your DS folder and use the provided BAT file to run the mod.

Run the game above p

Check the "dgVoodoo for x+ resolutions" section in Beatlebattle's guide.

You'll need dgVoodoo2.

Use unsupported resolutions

By default, the game can only be played in x, x or x

However, with some tweaking, you can play it at any resolution. There are a few caveats though:

You have 4 ways to make the game run at custom resolutions.

Method 1 (recommended):

  1. Download SeeFar
  2. Open the downloaded archive and navigate to the "ResolutionFix" subfolder.
  3. Extract "system_sprers.eu" to <path-to-game> (it does the same thing than Requested display mode is unsupported) and "sf_sprers.eu" to "<path-to-game>\Resources".
  4. Run the game.
  5. Select your desired resolution from the options.

Method 2:

Add the "width=xxxx" and "height=xxxx" launch parameters (where "xxxx" is your desired resolution, for instance "width= height="). Make sure there is no space before/after the equal sign. See the following instructions for shortcuts, Steam or GOG Galaxy.

Method 3:

  1. Open <config-file> (or <config-file-LOA> for LOA) with a text editor.
  2. Change the "width = xxxx" and "height = xxxx" to your desired resolution (where "xxxx" is your desired resolution).
  3. Save the file.

Method 4:

  1. Follow the steps described in Requested display mode is unsupported.
  2. Run "<path-to-game>\sprers.eu" and select your custom resolution.
  3. Copy "<path-to-game>\sprers.eu" to <path-to-docs> (or <path-to-docs-LOA> for LOA).

It's better to specify the resolution in launch parameters (method 2) compared to the configuration file (method 3 and 4) because it will prevent the game from changing it back to the default resolutions while navigating the options menu.

Note: for resolutions higher than p, check Run the game above p.

Black screen at Gom

When going down the elevator before fighting Gom, the cutscene may break and pressing Escape will trigger a black screen. This bug is caused by the camera script that comes with LOA, which doesn't work properly when SeeFar is installed. It breaks one of the camera triggers during that cutscene, preventing it from completing.

There are 2 ways to circumvent it.

Method 1 (recommended):

  1. Download this hotfix.
  2. Place it in "<path-to-game>\Resources".
  3. Run the game.
  4. Load your saved game.
  5. Proceed to beat Gom.
  6. Remove the hotfix (otherwise the initial cutscene of the LOA campaign will break).

Method 2:

You have to import your party from your modded save to another save that doesn't use SeeFar. For your convenience, you can download an unmodded saved game right before Gom here.

  1. Place the unmodded save into <path-to-docs-LOA>\Save.
  2. Run DSLOAMod (see Make DSLOAMod work on the Steam version).
  3. Ignore all the errors it may throw.
  4. Load the "endgame_save" saved game.
  5. Open the console with ~ (or the key above TAB).
  6. Place the mouse cursor on flat ground, between your characters.
  7. Type "party load <name-of-your-save>.dssave".
  8. Check that all your characters are there.
  9. Proceed to beat Gom.

Note: if you save again, your new saved game will only be accessible from DSLOAMod.

Booted back to the MP menu when trying to host a game

Enable DirectPlay (see Enable MP).

Cannot find world:global:vosounds in gas tree

Your game files are corrupted. Reinstall the game.

Crash/exception

It can be caused by literally anything. Here are a few common fixes I've gathered since I started playing this game:

  • Run "<path-to-game>\sprers.eu" and switch your driver to "<gpu-model> - Hardware" (or its TnL equivalent).
  • Use simple shadows (Options -> Shadows -> Simple) or disable them.
  • Lower object quality (Options -> Object Detail).
  • Run the game as administrator.
  • Run the game in compatibility mode (try all of them).
  • Run the game from the executable instead of Steam.
  • Run the game on your other GPU (if you have one).
  • If you're using a resolution higher than p, see Run the game above p.
  • Disable overlays (Steam, GOG, Discord, etc).
  • Right-click "sprers.eu" then hit "Properties -> Compatibility -> Reduced color mode -> bit () color".
  • One of your saved games is corrupted, remove it.
  • Some mods can conflict with each other. Find and remove conflicting mods.
  • Some mods don't work on LOA. Find and remove incompatible mods, then look for similar mods compatible with LOA.
  • Make the game recognize your GPU with this guide.
  • Make sure the "My Documents" directory is on your C drive.
  • Install DirectX c.
  • Use dgVoodoo2.

Note: DSVideoConfig only edits "<path-to-game>\sprers.eu" (it's intended to be run before playing the game the first time) so make sure to copy it to <path-to-docs> (or <path-to-docs-LOA> if you're using LOA).

Fuel failed to write file sprers.eu

  • Run "<path-to-game>\sprers.eu" as administrator.
  • Make sure <path-to-docs> is not read-only.
  • Disable your anti-virus.

Game screen is offset

If your game looks zoomed in, it's likely caused by your screen scaling settings.

  1. Right-click "sprers.eu" then hit "Properties".
  2. Go to "Compatibility -> Change high DPI settings".
  3. Check "Override high DPI scaling behaviour" and make sure "Application" is selected in the drop-down menu.

Alternatively, you can set the Windows display scaling setting back to %:

  1. Right-click on your desktop.
  2. Select "Display settings".
  3. Go to "Scale and layout".
  4. Select "% (Recommended)".

Incompatible version

When playing MP, it's important that everyone uses EXACTLY the same files.

The game performs a CRC check on all files. If check values between clients don't match, the game won't let you join someone else's game. It's often caused by different executables, resources and game language. Even an additional resource (typically a mod) will cause it.

Here are the files that differ between the Steam and retail versions:

  • Resources\sprers.eu
  • Resources\sprers.eu
  • Resources\sprers.eu
  • sprers.eu

You can get the Steam version of these files here.

Here are the files that differ between languages:

  • DSLOA\sprers.eu (retail only)
  • Resources\sprers.eu
  • Resources\sprers.eu (retail only)
  • sprers.eu

Mouse cursor is missing

Turn off supersampling in your GPU control panel.

For NVIDIA users:

  1. Right-click on your desktop.
  2. Select "NVIDIA Control Panel".
  3. Click on "Manage 3D settings".
  4. Set "DSR - Factors" to "Off".

For AMD users:

  1. Right-click on your desktop.
  2. Select "AMD Radeon Settings".
  3. Click on the "Display" tab.
  4. Set "Virtual Super Resolution" to "Off".

Source: sprers.eu#c

No GPU listed in DSVideoConfig

Packmule inventory is inaccessible

After converting a DS save to LOA, packmules are being treated like traggs (8 * 13 cells) but the UI remains the one from the mule (12 * 13 cells). Therefore, you can't access the items located in the last 5 columns.

You have to remove items from your mule's inventory and hit the "Auto-arrange inventory" button to be able to access them.

Poor performance

Run the game once then open <config-file> (or <config-file-LOA> for LOA) with a text editor. Make sure you have the following at the top:

You can also add this too, if you want:

If the game still doesn't run well, you may want to run it on your other GPU (if you have one) or add your GPU to the list so the game recognizes it (see No GPU listed in DSVideoConfig).

Note: if the framerate is bad in windowed mode, applying the fixes from UI/cursor flickering may help.

Requested display mode is unsupported

When running the game in resolutions other than the default ones, a warning message will be displayed every time you start/load a game from the main menu.

Open "<path-to-game>\system_sprers.eu" and everywhere you see x, add a duplicate of that line but change it with your resolution, like in the example below:

Save failed

When trying to save the game, you may get a message saying "Save failed" and no save is created under <path-to-docs>.

  • Your antivirus/antimalware/ransomware protection is at fault. Add the game as an exception or disable it.
  • You have a username with special (non-latin) characters. Change your username so it only uses latin characters.
  • Run the game as admin.

Note: it happens in a few other games too.

Source: sprers.eu

Sorry, this save game was not created by Legends of Aranna and cannot be loaded

See Convert DS saves to LOA.

Steam detects the game as running after closing it

This may happen after hosting/joining a multiplayer session.

  1. Open Task Manager.
  2. Go to the Details tab.
  3. Find sprers.eu and terminate it.

How to Fix Binkwdll Is Missing Errors

Binkwdll errors are caused by issues that the particular game you're trying to install or play is having with the Bink Video codec created by RAD Game Tools, Inc.

Most of the time, the "procedure entry point" errors involving binkwdll are due to running "cracked" versions of games. You may see this error when trying to run a game without the original CD or DVD, something commonly done with illegally downloaded games.

Many popular PC games use the Bink Video codec. Your game may use the codec (and thus binkwdll) even if you've never installed anything from RAD Game Tools.

Binkwdll Errors

There are many ways that the error might show up on your computer. Most of the time, it's telling you that you're missing the DLL file.

Below are some of the more common variations of the error:

  • Missing BINKWDLL
  • Binkwdll Not Found
  • This application failed to start because BINKWDLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.
  • Cannot find binkwdll!
  • An attempt to delay-load a .dll or get a function address in a delay-loaded .dll failed. Dll: binkwdll
  • This program can't start because binkwdll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem

Even after replacing the binkwdll file, some users will receive one of these related errors or another like it:

  • The procedure entry point _BinkSetVolume@12 could not be located in the dynamic link library binkwdll.
  • The procedure entry point _BinkSetMemory@8 could not be located in the dynamic link library binkwdll.

The file is not blinkw32 but binkw32 (without an "L"). You might see a lot of references online to blink instead of bink, but they're just typos.

The error message could apply to any PC video game that utilizes the Bink Video codec.

Some common games that may generate these errors include Age of Conan, Dungeon Lords, Civilization III, Demon Stone, Battlefield , Battlefield , Age of Empires III, Dungeon Siege II, World in Conflict, Sid Meier's Pirates!, Broken Sword 4, Ragnarok, BioShock, Battlefield Vietnam, Empire Earth II, DarkRO, Hitman: Blood Money, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Star Wars: Battlefront II, Tomb Raider: Legend, and many more.

How to Fix Binkwdll Errors

Do not download the binkwdll DLL file individually from any "DLL download site." There are many reasons why downloading DLLs from these sites is never a good idea. If you need a copy of the file, it's always best to obtain it from its legitimate, original source. If you've already downloaded it, remove it from wherever you placed it and continue with the following steps.

  1. Close and reopen the game program that generated the binkwdll error. Whatever game you're playing may be having a temporary problem that a restart might fix.

  2. Download and install the RAD Video Tools to possibly replace the missing or corrupt file.

    The download comes in the form of a 7Z file, so you'll need 7-Zip on your computer to open it. There's also a password listed on the download page that you'll need when opening it.

  3. Reinstall the game. Since the error involves a video codec that should have been included inside your game installation, reinstalling the entire game is likely to resolve the problem.

    Even if you're not asked, be sure to restart your computer after the uninstall and before the reinstall. Restarting your computer at this point will ensure that any loaded files are cleared from memory and that the uninstallation is percent complete.

  4. Download the latest update to the game. Visit the game designer's website and download the latest service pack, patch, or another update for your particular game.

    In many cases, even with some instances of the "procedure entry point _BinkSetVolume@12" and related errors, the binkwdll error may have been corrected in a game update.

  5. Copy the binkwdll file from your game's System directory to your game's root directory. In some games, the file is placed in the wrong directory when the game is installed.

    For example, if your game is installed in C:\Program Files\Game, copy the file from C:\Program Files\Game\System folder to the game's root folder at C:\Program Files\Game.

  6. Copy the binkwdll file to your Windows System directory. Some people experiencing these errors have fixed this problem by copying the binkwdll file from its location in the game's installation folder to the C:\Windows\System folder.

  7. Copy the binkwdll file from the game's disc to the program's installation folder. If you can't find the DLL file from the game's System folder or the Windows System folder, or copying that DLL didn't work, the next best place to get it is from the original CD.

    For example, if the error presents itself while playing Age of Empires III, open the disc from File Explorer and find the Disk1C~sprers.eu file. Open that CAB file and copy the binkwdll file from there to the game's installation folder, which in this case is probably C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III.

    In most cases, you want to copy the DLL file to whatever folder has the game's primary application file, usually an EXE file that's used to start the game each time it's opened from a shortcut. You can find this folder by right-clicking a shortcut to the game (usually on the Desktop) and choosing the option to open the file's location.

  8. Is the game pirated? In most cases, the "procedure entry point _BinkSetVolume@12" and related errors only appear when running an illegal version of a game. If this is the case, our only recommendation here is to purchase the game and try again.

  9. Upgrade your video card. It's a less common reason, but in some cases, the "procedure entry point [email protected]" error and others like it are caused by running a game on a computer system with an inferior video card. Upgrading the card to one with more memory and processing power could resolve the problem.

Be sure to visit the game designer's website and find out what the minimum video card requirements are for the game you're trying to play. You'll want to make sure you're buying a powerful enough card to play the game.

Application Load Error P [FIXED]Application Load Error P
Hello All,

I had problems with this error. A workaroudn i found for it was to run the program as an admin. HOWEVER, there will be an error message that pops up. If you read it, it should say "hit cancle to continue'

After hitting cancle i was able to get me games to launch again.

Based on what steam users have said

Submitted by bare_elf on Sat,

There is more than just the version number mismatch. I am starting to believe that there is content missing from the Steam versions of both DS1 and DS2. Why do I think this you ask? Because of missing objects, objects that float above where they should be. Missing or problematic ambient characters and shopkeepers, innkeepers. If a person has both the steam version of DS1 and DS2 they appear to report more of these issues than do people with just one of the steam versions, application load error 5 dungeon siege. Now I know that there is content in retail versions of all disk read error ocurred various Dungeon Siege editions that exist, but are application load error 5 dungeon siege active in the final release of the games. I also know that some of these assets are used in the DS1_Legendary_Mod. What if the people at Steam removed the unused assets from their versions to provide a faster download?
That would explain the different version numbers between the retail and steam versions of the game. This would also explain why the more advanced the legendary mod becomes the more of these issues arise. Now asking the people at Steam if they removed any of the content is pointless as their tech support is almost non existent. So we will have to rely on the steam users themselves to help us answer this question. So in that light, if you have a steam version of any of the games installed on your computer could you provide the following information>
The name and file size of each of the default files for the games you have.
I am most interested in the sizes of sprers.eu2res and sprers.eu2res, but having the size of the sound files and terrain file would also be useful.

Thank you in advance
Elf

Please note that while this document is based on the Steam version (combined with Killah's fix), I did my best to accommodate retail users and those not using LOA. Some steps may be different and a few issues may not happen on the retail version.

Add the game on GameRanger

Method 1:

  1. Download the reg patch and run it from <path-to-game> (select option 3).

  2. In GameRanger, application load error 5 dungeon siege, hit "Edit -> Options -> Games -> Dungeon Siege -> Browse" then select "sprers.eu" (the executable must be named "sprers.eu" for LOA) from Program Files:

    GameRanger

Method 2:

  1. Download and run Symlinker (click on "Download Standalone Executable"). It's a front-end for the mklink command.

  2. In Symlinker, make a directory junction to your game directory in Program Files:

    application load error 5 dungeon siege alt="Symlinker">

  3. In GameRanger, hit "Edit -> Options -> Games -> Dungeon Siege -> Browse" then select "sprers.eu" (the executable must be named "sprers.eu" for LOA) from Program Files:

    GameRanger

Note: to change the game resolution, see method 1 or 3 of Use unsupported resolutions.

Capture the application load error 5 dungeon siege with OBS

I discovered a special trick to capture the game's window while playing fullscreen (without using desktop capture).

  1. Run the game windowed.
  2. Add a window capture in OBS and select DS (stretch it to fullscreen if you want).
  3. Close DS and remove the launch parameter so it runs fullscreen.
  4. Run the game again, OBS will still capture it.

If you're not playing at your native resolution, just make sure you don't alt-tab otherwise it'll fit only part of the screen! If you have to alt-tab, you can either go back to the main menu and load your saved game, or add a Crop/Pad filter (relative) on your window capture to remove the black borders.

If the game is not captured or listed in the drop-down menu at all, then I'd say you're either running the game in compatibility mode or as admin (OBS can't see processes with compatibility modes and won't list admin processes unless it's also run as admin). If it's not the case, then you're on a system with an integrated GPU and a dedicated GPU (like a laptop) and you may have to run the game on the same GPU that OBS is using.

Note: it also works with other games, as long as they're using DX9 (or older) or OpenGL.

Change the FOV

Hex-edit the game's executable.

Convert DS saves to LOA

After installing LOA, you won't be able to load your DS saved games. You need to add a flag in each saved game for LOA to recognize your DS saved game by performing both steps below:

Decompile the save:

  1. Download and run Tank Viewer.
  2. Click on Open, navigate to "<path-to-docs>\Save" and select your save.
  3. Click on Extract and select a folder (preferably empty) where to extract the files.
  4. Open the "sprers.eu" file with a text editor.
  5. Right below the line starting with "is_auto_save", add another line "is_dsx = true;".
  6. Save the file.

Recompile the save:

  1. Download and run Tank Creator.
  2. Click on Source and select the folder where you decompiled the files earlier.
  3. Click on Output, select "<path-to-docs-LOA>\Save" and make sure the file has a DSSAVE extension.
  4. Select "DS & LOA" under Format.
  5. Click on Create (if nothing happens, see Tank Creator doesn't work).

You should now be able to load your save in LOA, application load error 5 dungeon siege. The inventory of your mules may become glitched though (see Packmule inventory is inaccessible).

Source: sprers.eu

Enable Application error 4107 dsoal.
  • Extract sprers.eu and sprers.eu to <path-to-game>.
  • Run the game and enable EAX in the options.
  • Enable LOA + Extras

    Follow the instructions from Killah's guide.

    Enable MP

    If Windows doesn't detect that the game needs DirectPlay (when clicking on Multiplayer), go to Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Turn Windows features on or off -> Legacy Components -> Enable DirectPlay.

    Note: this only applies to Windows 7 or later.

    HD textures

    There are currently two HD textures packs available.

    The first one (recommended) is a set of upscaled textures (based on the original) using ESRGAN by Antrad

    The second one is a set of textures from the Legendary Mod (a DS2 mod that ports DS1 content over the DS2 engine) ripped by Eksevis.

    Note: it seems to work fine on all custom campaigns and doesn't bloat saves (only tested in The Lands of Hyperborea and the Ultima remakes).

    Increase shadow resolution

    Open "<path-to-game>\system_sprers.eu" and change the 10 occurrences of "shadow_tex_size = 64" to /// You can do a search and replace on "= 64".

    Note: and above can be VERY taxing in forests when using the "All complex" setting (in that case, switch to "Party complex"). Values higher than may prevent the game from loading.

    Increase UI size

    If you play the game at higher resolutions (like p), the UI won't scale and will become tiny. There is a workaround that involves rendering the game at a specific resolution and the UI at a lower resolution (effectively making it bigger):

    1. Download the latest version of dgVoodoo2.
    2. Open the downloaded archive and extract sprers.eu, sprers.eu and all files from the "MS\x86" subfolder (except sprers.eu) to <path-to-game>.
    3. Run sprers.eu, application load error 5 dungeon siege, go to the DirectX tab, select your native resolution from the Resolution drop down list and hit OK.
    4. Set the game at the resolution you want the UI to be scaled to, typically p or lower (see Use unsupported resolutions).

    You may encounter two issues when using dgVoodoo2:

    • if your game crashes at launch or slows down when moving the mouse, disable third-party overlays and frame limiters.
    • if you see a Windows cursor flicker in the middle of your screen, application load error 5 dungeon siege, just tab out and tab back in.

    Note: these instructions won't work while running the game in windowed mode.

    Install Mageworld, The Lands of Hyperborea and the Ultima 5/6 remakes on the Steam version

    Normally, the Ultima remakes are meant for the retail version, but some people made guides to make them work on the Steam version:

    I made some drag-and-drop archives if you want to skip the installation guide above:

    For the other mods, just ignore the above and download these archives:

    Please follow these steps for each mod to make sure everything is working properly:

    1. Extract the archive to your DS folder.
    2. Edit the provided BAT file with your desired resolution.
    3. Copy the content of <path-to-docs> to the "<path-to-game>\<mod-name>\User\Save" subfolder prior to running the mod (if you'd like to keep your key bindings and game preferences).
    4. Run the mod with the BAT file (you can also replicate its arguments in a shortcut or Steam launch options).
    5. Saved games will be located under the "<path-to-game>\<mod-name>\User\Save" subfolder (to avoid overriding saves from the main game).

    Note: all of these mods are NOT compatible with LOA. Please refer to their respective readme files for further issues.

    Play borderless fullscreen

    There are multiple programs that allow games to run borderless fullscreen (you can find an exhaustive list here), however for the sake of simplicity, we'll only cover one of them here.

    1. Download Fullscreenizer and run it.
    2. Run the game in windowed mode.
    3. Switch back to Fullscreenizer.
    4. If the game doesn't appear in the list, click on "Show All", select "Dungeon Siege" and click on "Add".
    5. Select the game in the list and press the Fullscreenize button (or use your hotkey combination), preferably after loading a game (see note below).

    Note: the main menu UI has a fixed resolution and will be broken, repeat step 5 again to make the game windowed again. The game may randomly freeze when switching windowed modes so try to avoid it.

    Play MP

    Run the game with the "zonematch=true" launch parameter to directly boot into the MP menu (not necessary if you're using the retail version or Killah's fix).

    Play MP map in SP

    Install one of these mods:

    Play windowed

    Add the "fullscreen=false" launch parameter (see the following instructions for shortcuts, Steam or GOG Galaxy) or in the config file (see method 3 of Use unsupported resolutions).

    Play Yesterhaven map in SP

    I made a drag-and-drop archive from Father Bronze's Yesterhaven Single-Player Edition so you won't have to worry about resources conflicting with each other.

    Just extract it to your DS folder and use the provided BAT file to run the mod.

    Run the game above p

    Check the "dgVoodoo for x+ resolutions" section in Beatlebattle's guide.

    You'll need dgVoodoo2.

    Use unsupported resolutions

    By default, the game can only be played in x, x or x

    However, application load error 5 dungeon siege, with some tweaking, you can play it at any application load error 5 dungeon siege. There are a few caveats though:

    You have 4 ways to make the game run at custom resolutions.

    Method 1 (recommended):

    1. Download SeeFar
    2. Open the downloaded archive and navigate to the "ResolutionFix" subfolder.
    3. Extract "system_sprers.eu" to <path-to-game> (it does the same thing than Requested display mode is unsupported) and "sf_sprers.eu" application load error 5 dungeon siege "<path-to-game>\Resources".
    4. Run the game.
    5. Select your desired resolution from the options.

    Method 2:

    Add the "width=xxxx" and "height=xxxx" launch parameters (where "xxxx" is your desired resolution, for instance "width= height="). Make sure there is no space before/after the equal sign. See the following instructions for shortcuts, Steam or GOG Galaxy.

    Method 3:

    1. Open <config-file> (or <config-file-LOA> for LOA) with a text editor.
    2. Change the "width = xxxx" and "height = xxxx" to your desired resolution (where "xxxx" is your desired resolution).
    3. Save the file.

    Method 4:

    1. Follow the steps described in Requested display mode is application load error 5 dungeon siege "<path-to-game>\sprers.eu" and select your custom resolution.
    2. Copy "<path-to-game>\sprers.eu" to <path-to-docs> (or <path-to-docs-LOA> for LOA).

    It's better to specify the resolution in launch parameters (method 2) compared to the configuration file (method 3 and 4) because it will prevent the game from changing it back to the default resolutions while navigating the options menu.

    Note: for resolutions higher than p, application load error 5 dungeon siege, check Run the game above p.

    Black screen at Gom

    When going down the elevator before fighting Gom, the cutscene may break and pressing Escape will trigger a black screen. This bug is caused by the camera script that comes with LOA, which doesn't work properly when SeeFar is installed. It breaks one of the camera triggers during that cutscene, preventing it from completing.

    There are 2 ways to circumvent it.

    Method 1 (recommended):

    1. Download this hotfix.
    2. Place it in "<path-to-game>\Resources".
    3. Run the game.
    4. Load your saved game.
    5. Proceed to beat Gom.
    6. Remove the hotfix (otherwise the initial cutscene of the LOA campaign will break).

    Method 2:

    You have to import your party from your modded save to another save that doesn't use SeeFar. For your convenience, you can download an unmodded saved game right before Gom here.

    1. Place the unmodded save into <path-to-docs-LOA>\Save.
    2. Run DSLOAMod (see Make DSLOAMod work on the Steam version).
    3. Ignore all the errors it may throw.
    4. Load the "endgame_save" saved game.
    5. Open the console with ~ (or the key above TAB).
    6. Place the mouse cursor on flat ground, between your characters.
    7. Type "party load <name-of-your-save>.dssave".
    8. Check that all your characters are there.
    9. Proceed to beat Gom.

    Note: if you save again, your new saved game will only be accessible from DSLOAMod.

    Booted back to the MP menu when trying to host a game

    Enable DirectPlay (see Enable MP).

    Cannot find world:global:vosounds in gas tree

    Your game files are corrupted. Reinstall the game.

    Crash/exception

    It can be caused by literally anything. Here are a few common fixes I've gathered since I started playing this game:

    • Run "<path-to-game>\sprers.eu" and switch your driver to "<gpu-model> - Hardware" (or its TnL equivalent).
    • Use simple shadows (Options -> Shadows -> Simple) or disable them.
    • Lower object quality (Options -> Object Detail).
    • Run the game as administrator.
    • Run the game in compatibility mode (try all of them).
    • Run the game from the executable instead of Steam.
    • Run the game on your other GPU (if you have one).
    • If you're using a resolution higher than p, see Run the game above p.
    • Disable overlays (Steam, GOG, Discord, etc).
    • Right-click "sprers.eu" then hit "Properties -> Compatibility -> Reduced color mode -> bit () color".
    • One of your saved games is corrupted, remove it.
    • Some mods can conflict with each other. Find and remove conflicting mods.
    • Some mods don't work on LOA. Find and remove incompatible mods, then look for similar mods compatible with LOA.
    • Make the game recognize your GPU with this guide.
    • Make sure the "My Documents" directory is on your C drive.
    • Install DirectX c.
    • Use dgVoodoo2.

    Note: DSVideoConfig only edits "<path-to-game>\sprers.eu" (it's intended to be run before playing the game the first application load error 5 dungeon siege so make sure to copy it to <path-to-docs> (or <path-to-docs-LOA> if you're using LOA).

    Fuel failed to write file sprers.eu

    • Run "<path-to-game>\sprers.eu" as administrator.
    • Make sure <path-to-docs> is not read-only.
    • Disable your anti-virus.

    Source: sprers.eu?fbid=

    Game screen is offset

    If your game looks zoomed in, it's likely caused by your screen scaling settings.

    1. Right-click "sprers.eu" then hit "Properties".
    2. Go to "Compatibility -> Change high DPI settings".
    3. Check "Override high DPI scaling behaviour" and make sure "Application" is selected in the drop-down menu.

    Alternatively, you can set the Windows display scaling setting back to %:

    1. Right-click on your desktop.
    2. Select "Display settings".
    3. Go to "Scale and layout".
    4. Select "% (Recommended)".

    Incompatible version

    When playing MP, msg 0.3 error 011105 important that everyone uses EXACTLY the same files.

    The game performs a CRC check on all files. If check values between clients don't match, the game won't let you join someone else's game. It's often caused by different executables, resources and game language. Even an additional resource (typically a mod) will cause it.

    Here are the files that differ between the Steam and retail versions:

    • Resources\sprers.eu
    • Resources\sprers.eu
    • Resources\sprers.eu
    • sprers.eu

    You can get the Steam version of these files here.

    Here are the files that differ between languages:

    • DSLOA\sprers.eu (retail only)
    • Resources\sprers.eu
    • Resources\sprers.eu (retail only)
    • sprers.eu

    Mouse cursor is missing

    Turn off supersampling in your GPU control panel.

    For NVIDIA users:

    1. Right-click on your desktop.
    2. Select "NVIDIA Control Panel".
    3. Click on "Manage 3D settings".
    4. Set "DSR - Factors" to "Off".

    For AMD users:

    1. Right-click on your desktop.
    2. Select "AMD Radeon Settings".
    3. Click on the "Display" tab.
    4. Set "Virtual Super Resolution" to "Off".

    No GPU listed in DSVideoConfig

    Packmule inventory is inaccessible

    After converting a DS save to LOA, packmules are being treated like traggs (8 * 13 cells) but the UI remains the one from the mule (12 * 13 cells). Therefore, you can't access the items located in the last 5 columns.

    You have to remove items from your mule's inventory and hit the "Auto-arrange inventory" button to be able to access them.

    Poor performance

    Run the game once then open <config-file> (or <config-file-LOA> for LOA) with a text editor. Make sure you have the following at the top:

    You can also add this too, if you want:

    If the game still doesn't run well, you may want to run it on your other GPU (if you have one) or add your GPU to the list so the game recognizes it (see No GPU listed in DSVideoConfig).

    Note: if the framerate is bad in windowed mode, applying the fixes from UI/cursor flickering may help.

    Requested display mode is unsupported

    When running the game in resolutions other than the default ones, a warning message will be displayed every time you start/load a game from the main menu.

    Open "<path-to-game>\system_sprers.eu" and everywhere you see x, add a duplicate of that line but change it with your resolution, like in the example below:

    Save failed

    When trying to save the game, you may get a message saying "Save failed" and no save is created under <path-to-docs>.

    • Your antivirus/antimalware/ransomware application load error 5 dungeon siege is at fault. Add the game as an exception or disable it.
    • You have a username with special (non-latin) characters. Change your username so it only uses latin characters.
    • Run the game as admin.

    Note: it happens in a few other games too.

    Sorry, this save game was not created by Legends of Aranna and cannot be loaded

    See Convert DS saves to LOA.

    Steam detects the game as running after closing it

    This may happen after hosting/joining a multiplayer session.

    1. Open Task Manager.
    2. Go to the Details tab.
    3. Find sprers.eu and terminate it.

    STEAM
    When I tried to start up the game it came up with some error saying this wasn't compatible with my OS, application load error 5 dungeon siege, but I just pressed run program. I made my character, and got a bit into the opening cutscene when a box popped up and said "Exception detected" and said it may take a few minutes to complete. Then it went away, the man in the cutscene said a few more words and then the game crashed. Did this happen because I ran the game instead of searching for a fix or is this a common problem? I'm running Vista HP.
