Technical Issues - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


Problems Running the Software


Messed up Colors, or Screen flashing

Right-click on Teudogar, 'Properties', 'Compatibility', check 'execute with 256 colors' and 'execute with 640x480'. Close all other programs (maybe also hide the taskbar - push it down so the clock etc aren't displayed anymore). In Windows System Settings, deactivate 'Visual Designs' and 'Desktop Styles'. Try right clicking on your Desktop, 'Properties', set 'Background Image: none'.

Also try: Right-click on Desktop, 'Screen Resolution' (also try Advanced Settings). Keep the 'Set Screen Resolution' window open. Use StartMenu to run Teudogar - while in the background, the 'Set Screen Resolution' window is still active. This often makes Windows refrain from messing up the color palette.

During the game, if the color palette has been messed up, hit ESC to go to the Teudogar Main Menu, and again ESC to return to the game; colors should be ok again. Alternatively, use ALT+TAB to return to the Windows Desktop, and ALT+TAB to go back to Teudogar; on reactivating Teudogar, the colors should get restored.

Google for more information: 'old games under Windows 7'.

Windows 8

Windows 8 doesn't support Teudogar's graphics mode anymore, so Teudogar cannot run on Windows 8 (and since this is something quite fundamental to the program, it cannot easily be rewritten to run). Only workaround is to get a Linux USB stick and boot your PC with Linux via your USB stick. This will not affect your Windows; you just RUN Linux from the USB stick, it's NOT NECESSARY to INSTALL it. Once you've booted with Linux (any version) get WINE; and run Teudogar using WINE.

Problems Installing the Software


Writing Error during Installation

Installation requires Administrator Rights, as it tries to write the Uninstaller into Windows' System folder. Newer Windows versions no longer allow this, therefore the error. However, since all relevant game files have already been written successfully, the game can in fact run correctly. Just go to Program Files\Teudogar and run Teudogar.Exe.

Can't start under Windows 7 - 64bit

'Corrupted files, please get a new copy': This is a stupid bug triggered by Windows 7's Program Files (x86) pathname. In fact, all of your Teudogar files are fine, Teudogar just doesn't realize it, because, due to the '(' and ')' in the path name, it cannot find some of them.

Solution: Simply create a new folder 'C:\Games' and move your 'Teudogar and the Alliance with Rome'-folder from 'C:\Program Files (x86)' to 'C:\Games'. Start C:\Games\Teudogar and the Alliance with Rome\Teudogar.Exe - should now run without problems.
