Does it work on anyone else's computer? I just get Beethro as a collection of black lines and a shadow...and it covers the screen. I can't see anything. Is there a way to fix this, or is the demo just bad?

Well it's working fine for me, so I don't think it's the demo. Have you tried altering the settings in the main menu? Otherwise all I can think of is that your graphics card maybe isn't up to scratch.

Hope you get it working - the game's looking really good now.

It's working fine for me too, but I already got an email from someone saying their Beethro was just a weird triangle. They were using Windows XP, which probably doesn't matter. I'm using Windows 2000, though, so it may be the problem. What OS are you guys using?

I went ahead and tried it today.... pretty nice!

When I first started it, it was in 640x480 full-screen and most of the time it went incredibly slow - I changed it to be in a 1024x768 window and it sped up to about 500 fps or so.

And this is on an XP box.

I had the same problem and talked to Patrice Duhamel of TLK about it. He thinks it might have to do with... uh... I'll just copy-and-paste it:

I'm trying to correct this problem.


So maybe the next version will work better for you.

OK, I have a completely different problem. First, I have music but no effects - are the sound effects in yet?
Secondly - as soon as I try to go down the stairs at the end of level 1 the game closes with an error about not being able to load the next module. Anyone know what's wrong? I'd like to fix it as playing level one isn't really much of a challenge. :)

The only levels that can be played are 1, 2, 7, and 8. To get to the other levels, go to the Restore option on the main menu. Also, I don't think there are any sound effects. Like you, I only hear music.

Aha. I wondered what I was doing wrong. Thanks Matt.

I get a segmentation fault upon popping it open, which disappoints me. I'm packing a TNT2 with the latest drivers, and it apparently supports OpenGL. Perhaps a search for the latest OpenGL version...?
