Ok i have had this game sine 1995/1996 when i first got it with my new computer and ever since i have had the game once in a while it will bring up a box that says ignore, retry or exit. I recently installed it on my new computer and it dose the same thing i get up to when i meet whats her name in the gym and then i click on her screen goes black and stays black and brings up that box with different problems constantly. How can i fix this? Or do i have to junk this and get a new set of cd`s? These are scratched up pretty good, but i have always had this problem even when the game was brand new.

Matt,

I ran into that problem once myself and my CDs, like yours, were pretty worn out. So I purchased a new set for about 3 bucks or so, and has worked great ever since! Although, now that I look at my set it's starting to look kind of worn. uh-oh.

well these cd`s even did this when they were brand new and didnt have a scratch on them, but they worked on my sisters computer which is the same exact as the old computer i had when i first got the game at the same time i got the computer. I dont know im about to just junk it uninstall it and forget about it. on the old computer it would freeze up. and some times gives this warning and if you hit ignore the graphics gets all messed up on the person your talking to. but on this computer now i cant even get it to run it now says that theres not enough room but it worked earlier

Matt,

I believe your problem may have to do with your settings. Try changing your resolution to 256 colours and see what happens. I've had the same problem, but once I switched it to 256 it worked perfectly fine.

computer dosent have 256 color but it switches it automaticly. But first i get one error i hit ignore, then it brings up the " titanic has encountered a disk read error (code 23), Be sure your titanic CD is in your computer`s CD-ROM drive and that it is clean and free of scratches" then i hit ignore after 4 or 5 mins it brings that same code 23 error up again i hit ignore then 3 mins later it shuts the game down and brings up the window fatal error at line 4194 (code 0) choose "OK" to return to windows.

And it has always gave me those errors even when i got the game new. anyway to fix it or did i just get a bad batch? disk two i always have problems with but disk one is fine once i get back to disk one, Also i get those errors when i go up to the gym to meet whats her name and i click on her, screen goes black and then gives me those warnings after a few moments.

yep. but whats weird is it works fine on my sisters computer and me and her got the same exact computer on the same exact day. and it never worked on mine. it would bring up those errors but both computers were the same. now that i have my new computer with window`s XP it still dose this but now i cant even get past the first part of getting my mission briefing when it dose that usualy on the old computer it did that if i went with the cardsharp and talked with zitel in the cafe i belive it was.

It's hard to say what the problem is then. The only other things I can suggest are, try cleaning the discs and if that doesn't work, check your drive for errors by running 'Scan Disk'.

Or perhaps there is something wrong with your CD-ROM drive. Have you tried running a completely different one to see if the same thing happens?

hmm not sure if its the cd-rom drive or not, but all my other games works fine on here that used to work on my old windows 95 computer, i didnt install the Direct X version cause i didnt want it to change the Direct X 9 i have to that Direct X3 or whatever it has

But i dont know if cleaning it would help considering the botton is scratched up to hell and back. I was thinking bout burning a copy on my computer and see but it would take 8 hours to just scan it due to the scratches i guess so i said screw it. Im going to try and get the people files off the disk and into the local folder like on that one site said. If that dosent work then ill just wait for that new titanic related game to come out that survivor or what ever its called

Hope someone can help be. I just bought the game Titanic-Adventure out of time. After a lot of problem caused by SP2 I finally got the game installed. But when I try to run the game I get a message that I don't have enough memory but I have a lot of memory. 512 MB ram and over 60 GB on the harddrive. What shall I do?

Hi, and thanks for the welcome.

I have Windows XP. Speed of the CD-rom(or DVD-rom) is 16. I have tried to run the game compatible for Windows 95 but it still wont start.

You're welcome, Eva. I merged the posts with this thread, since it is also discussing problems with the game.

That's very strange. Even though it is an older game, it can still run with Windows XP. Check out this link for answers to technical problems that can occur with Windows.

I hope this helps.

I looked at all answers, incl. those for Windows 98. But I don't have active desktop, no screensaver and the virus-protection is set on manual. No other programs runs in the background as far as I know.

Any other suggestion?

As I wrote earlier I had some problems with the installation that was caused by Service Pack 2. If any of you get the message:

"16 bit Windows Subsystem - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application

Then go to the following link:
http://unodocs.nmsu.edu/RoboDocs/WebHelp/jinitiator/ji_05.htm

I did everything that was said on that page and then the installation worked just fine.

Now I just have to solve the other problem:)

That message is basically saying that an important file is missing.

Your CD-ROM drive is more than adequate, so that is not the problem. You may be missing another file or a certain patch, but I'm not sure. Try uninstalling it fully, restart your computer and then re-install it, and see what happens.

Hello Eva,
I don't know if this is the error you receive

but I get this when I try to run the Adventure Out of Time demo. However, it hasn't appeared when running the full game yet, so the following might not help (if you're still getting the error):

1) With the first CD in the drive, go to the "Start" menu > "My Computer" > The CD\DVD drive (right-click and select “Open”) > then open the Titanic.exe file (the life preserver icon).

2) If #1 didn't work, try going to the "Start" menu > "My Computer" > (C

drive (or whatever hard drive letter the game is installed on) > "Program Files" > "Cyberflix" > "Titanic" folder, and open the Ti.exe file (the green icon).

The demo ran with either of these methods, and oddly enough without any compatibility modes selected for those files (I did select compatibility modes for the Titanic.exe file on the hard drive, but that’s the one that sometimes doesn’t work). You might need to select some of the compatibility modes if neither of the above files work.

Hopefully one of these will succeed if you still have a problem (and won’t screw up your computer!).

P.S.,

I don't know why there's a smiley face after "C" in the above post. Maybe that's what happens when you type a ":" followed by a ")". Well anyway, good luck!
