Launcher refuses to >start the game< if vJoy is active. in Technical Support Posted July 29, 2018 · Edited July 29, 2018 by Limonada I apologize, I worded it horribly. At first I wrote "Launcher refuses to launch" but that sounded horribly so I quickly changed it to "open" (open the game) and mixed launcher/game.

I can start the launcher (the launcher can start the game*) if vJoy is disabled as (before*) the launcher starts the game or if I remove dinput8.dll from the game folder. Quote bbmod: DirectInput8Create Unicode dinput8 was created, cannot continue I am using vJoy in order to simulate the xbox 360 start button and get access to the alternate action palette. If you know a better way to simulate it on a keyboard or mouse, I'd appreciate it. Rewrote the first post to clarify the issue. 13 hours ago, Soly said: [...] if the launcher actually starts and you can start the game from it but you get the message you posted, then I can't really help you with it. The launcher starts, but if it's commanded to "Start Game", it just opens a black screen and the error message. Btw, could you please tell me why does the game crashes (w7) if the "User Account Control" window opens as it is running? Edit: It also happens if I Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
