  1. Hello, I appreciate that you must be busy. I'm just wondering if I provided all of the information that you need to help me, or if there is any other information that I can provide. Thanks again, Tom.
  2. Hey Vic, Thanks for your help. Some strange behaviour from my machine here: I launched Tower 3d and set up a scenario at TIST. Without the ADIRS windows open in the game, I ran the ADIRS batch from Windows Explorer (as administrator, just in case). The ADIRS.log file failed to update, it remained time stamped from a week ago. I renamed the log file, executed the batch again, no new log was generated. I launched the dos prompt to see if an error of some sort was being generated in the dos window. When I ran the batch from the dos prompt, it generated a log. I'm confused. I am surprised that the same procedure can generate a different result based on the method in which it was launched. When running from the dos prompt, there was no change in the duration of the screen remaining active either with or without the ADIRS window being open in game. I'm not sure which file you mean for the game log. If it is '\game.log', tower 3d does not appear to be generating one. I have attached tower3d_data\output_log.txt, but \speech.log is far too large to attach. I have taken the liberty of checking (and relaxing) permissions, they look fine, especially given everything is being run as administrator (both the tower3d & mmwindow executables are set as such in the compatibility tab). In case it is relevant, I'm running Trend Micro Internet Security for anti-virus, but it is not giving any suspicious behaviour/blocked file warnings. Thanks again, Tom. adirs.log output_log.txt
  3. Hello flightsimpilot, thanks for the thought, sadly no joy. My monitors are all at the same resolution. I've even tried disabling the "Aero" theme and reverting to the windows' basic colours. Very strange. Cheers, Tom
  4. Greetings and salutations, Firstly, nice work on Tower 3d Pro. Well worth the investment! I too am having this problem. I've tried running Tower 3D as admin, as well as the batch files. From the game, the window pops up for about 1 second, then closes. It does not appear to actually load the ADIRS, DBRITE or strips, I am only able to see the title bar, frame, and what I assume to be the background colour.When running the batch files, I only see the dos prompt for a moment. I am able to consistently crash mmwindow by clicking and dragging the title bar of the strips window in the brief moment that it is active. (Tower 3d continues running happily through the mmwindow crash). Something I find interesting, I have noticed in the mmwindow directory there are a couple of log files. I have these only for ADIRS and Strip, neither log is time stamped from today. Are these supposed to be generated every time I attempt to launch these windows? Not sure which file is most pertinent, I'll take a punt and send the output log from one of the crash folders. If the strip and adirs logs are of interest, I can attach them to another comment, but the remaining content of the crash folders are too large to attach. Email? Thanks for the help, Tom output_log.txt
  5. Hi Ian, Thank-you so much for the advice. I was able to find a way of white listing in AVG (advanced, exceptions), but no longer need to. I reported the false positive to AVG before work and it seems that they have already white-listed it. No more false positive. Thanks again for the help. Now I just need to work out how this game works...! Cheers, Tom
  6. Hello, hopefully someone out there can help me. I have purchased Tower! 2011 almost two hours ago and after many attempts have been unable to install a working copy of the game. I am running Windows 7 (64 bit) and use AVG Free for my anti-virus. The problem I am having is: after installation, the game executable TOWER.EXE is detected as a virus: "Generic36.BMKA" (more info: http://www.avgthreatlabs.com/ww-en/virus-and-malware-information/info/trojan-horse-generic/?name=Trojan%20horse%20Generic36.BMKA&utm_source=TDPU&utm_medium=SCAN&PRTYPE=AVF). I'm not prepared to deactivate my anti-virus, nor is there an option to run the program in spite of the detection (as you would expect). If anyone else has had this issue or has any idea how to solve this problem, your assistance would be greatly appreciated. I have downloaded the installer 3 times (once per available mirror) with no change in the result. Thanks in advance, Tom.
