View Full Version : Help! Cxbx not working!
September 1st, 2003, 21:38
Ok, of all the previous versions of cxbx that i have had, 0.7.8b is the 1st ive had any problems with. I downloaded 0.7.8b earlier and started it up without any problems, then ran the xray and gamepad demos and they both worked fine. Then i deleted my cxbx version 0.7.7b because i didnt really have any use for it anymore, after i deleted it i went back to 0.7.8b and tried to run the xray demo and as soon as i told it to start emulation cxbx crashed and i got the standard windows program crash alert "cxbx has encountered a problem and needs to close. we are sorry for in inconvenience blah blah blah" so i was a tad confused and decided to redownload it...no luck. it still crashes every time i try to run something. could someone please try to help me with this?

I kinda had this problem. It told me there was an error emulating or something. What I did is I didnt open cxbx and lad the demo, I just opened the demo by double clicking. It opened up in Cxbx and no more problems.

well i tried what you said romstein but when i do it i get another error message saying cxbx.dll cannot be found but i know its is my cxbx folder with everything else, im sorry i cannot provide any more info but i honestly dont know what else there is, i havent tried version 0.7.8c yet because my computers internet connection is down but i will try whenever i get it to come back. anyways, thanks for trying to help

Cxbx.dll should be in the folder where the xbe your double clicking is.
September 3rd, 2003, 05:01
nope. I have all my xbe's in folders and they all work fine for me.
September 3rd, 2003, 05:20
Oh sorry the EXE file your clicking
September 3rd, 2003, 05:39
cxbx.exe and cxbx.dll are both in the same folder along with the folders my xbe files are in
September 3rd, 2003, 06:33
Um search your comp for cxbx.dll and cxbx.exe and delete those.

i deleted everything on my comp that had anything to do with cxbx so it was like i was just starting out and had never done anything with cxbx before, then i downloaded 0.7.8c and tried to run various demos and didnt have any luck with any of em, i still got the same old error message....i did notice that i didnt have some of the folders i usually have with cxbx, the folders were, and im not sure i remember this right, but i think UDATA and TDATA? again im not sure if those are the folder names or not but thats what i remember, i might just be retarded tho...

The cxbx makes some regestry entries. Search the regestry for cxbx and delete them. I don't know if it really helps but just try.

*sigh* i have tried just about everything, i deleted all the cxbx files, cleaned the registry, and numerous other things. I have no idea what the problem is...unless someone can help me i guess my cxbx days are over :(

First of all I want to congratulate Castik, because f the great work he is doing. I'm astonished with the development of this emu.
Well, I've never had any problem with any version of CXBX, and my comp isn't very good (A 750Mhz Athlon). To solve your problem try reinstalling your vidcard drivers, and then try to configure the video inside the emu. If t doesn't work try putting the exe in Win98 compatibility. If it doesn't work, sorry. I can't help you :(.

What OS are you running, gazelle?
September 6th, 2003, 02:03
ive got windows XP pro
September 6th, 2003, 02:06
Doesnt seem to make sense to me, if you delete the registry entry, remove the Cxbx.exe/Cxbx.dll/UDATA/TDATA/CxbxCache directorys, then download Cxbx-0.7.8c, you should be totally back to normal.
Are you using 32bit color mode?
What is your exact error message?
September 8th, 2003, 07:47
yea im totally confused too, but yes i am using 32 bit color and the error message is as follows, "Cxbx.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." its the standard windows program crash message, i looked at the details of the problem but couldnt make heads or tails of it :PCmad:

Sounds like a xp problem more than a cxbx problem. I could be wrong though
September 12th, 2003, 02:48
yea it does seem like more of an xp problem than a cxbx problem, but anyways im having a computer guy come over tomorrow to fix my other comp and ill have him take a look at the one ive got cxbx on to see if he can tell whats up with it
September 15th, 2003, 08:24
all is well now, i found what the problem was. i went back into the registry just to make sure i deleted the entry and for some reason it was still there...so i deleted it and everything cxbx (again :P) and redownloaded it and everything works fine again :) thanks for the help everyone
P.S.- caustik keep up the rockin work man, you are truely and emulation uber-god

Sorry activa but this emu is still in an early development stage and it doesn't run commercial games at the moment.
Moreover you can't read a Xbox original disc into a pc-DVD reader, it only can be read in the Xbox.

Thanks man! ;):) Anyway then what can I play in this emu. and how??Could you please help me out with this once again....Thanx again man!!

Read the the forum rules and you will know whats the problem with reading XBOX DVDs on a PC DVD drive. If you solve that problem you will have to wait for a better cxbx version(maybe some month).

This emu is able to run some Homebrew games like X-Marbles and some impressive demos (not GAME demos) like X-Ray.
