Re: Halloween 2014 Trick Or Treat Contest

Magical Diary is that box of chocolates where all but one are nasty coconut combinations but the last one is raspberry filling and you know you should be polite and not hog the only good candy but damn it, raspberry and coconut aren't even on the same PLANET so you do it anyway. Every time. The rasp...

Is it possible to delete trophies?

I've gotten them all and I'd like to clear the trophy gallery so I can chase them all down again :-) (This isn't on the Steam version, just the regular one.)

Re: Seeking Science Explorers for Steam beta

I'm not sure what's causing the c0000005 crashes, but have some possible tests. First: Upload the Science Girls exe (the small one, not the installer) to http://spikycaterpillar.com/savegame-upload.html so I can rule out viruses on your machines. (I don't _think_ it's virus-related, but want to mak...

Re: Seeking Science Explorers for Steam beta

Okay, tonight's experiment (see, I can science too!): 1) Opened game after using my computer all day. Success. 2) Rebooted computer, immediately opened game (once computer's "thinking noises" stopped). Failure message. Waited a minute - another failure message. 3) Rebooted again, opened Chrome, open...

Re: Seeking Science Explorers for Steam beta

That's the thing, though - I've been running it pretty much first thing (well, email THEN running it), just to see. I'm going to keep trying to run it randomly through out the day and keep some notes - even if it's not the fault of the game, someone else may end up having similar issues down the lin...

Re: Seeking Science Explorers for Steam beta

Aaaaaand . . . it's running fine again today. I have done literally nothing differently, but some mornings I can turn on the game just fine and others it gives me the error messages every time I try.

Maybe it only works on even-numbered days?

Re: Seeking Science Explorers for Steam beta

I've only gotten the one achievement so far (and had the minimization bug more than once), but the achievement that did show up was in the Steam pop-up menu (over the desktop). I'm playing in fullscreen mode. I can't find any leaks.debug file, but I'm uploading the renderleak pngs now. ETA: Ooh, act...

Re: Seeking Science Explorers for Steam beta

Gah - it was working fine yesterday! I got the text popup when I quit (which I emailed you), immediately reloaded my save and quit again without getting the text popup, then when I tried to start the game today it gave me the same error message I posted upthread :-(

Re: Seeking Science Explorers for Steam beta

Not a game-breaking glitch, but I just beat found a bunch of alien seeds in a hole (guarded by a turnip thingy in an underground maze, hope you know what I'm talking about) and the game minimized itself for no particular reason. It opened again just fine to where it left off, but odd. ETA: Did it ag...

Re: Seeking Science Explorers for Steam beta

Steam updated something today (~5 seconds, maybe?) and now the game works. So I have no idea what happened.

Re: Seeking Science Explorers for Steam beta

Hmmm - yes, I do still have the other one, and it gives the same error message. (LLTQ and The Royal Trap both work fine, though, as do other Steam games - seems like the problem is restricted to Science Girls.) Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: ScienceGirls!.exe Appli...

Re: Seeking Science Explorers for Steam beta

What happens when you bring up the game install folder (through 'Browse local files'), quit the Steam client entirely, and start the game from the install folder directly? Same error message. Do you have any virus scanners or other apps that modify running programs? Does turning them off make a dif...

Re: Seeking Science Explorers for Steam beta

"51 files failed to validate and will be reacquired." Allowed them to load, closed and re-launched steam, got the same failure message. Tried verifying again immediately and got 41 files failing to validate this time (and the next). No ScienceGirls!.exe.log file there, as far as I can tell. Deleting...

Re: Seeking Science Explorers for Steam beta

No additional information, just thegeneric message: http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y247/wendymarlowe/sciencegirlserrormessage_zps14afa0cb.png I'm running Windows 7, and booting the game from the start menu, desktop shortcut, and Steam library page all give the same error. I found the "Enable Steam...
