SMBX2 MGL3 (beta 4) runs on Win10 but SMBX2 beta 3 won't?

Postby McNaquar » Fri Jun 14, 2019 6:06 pm

I recently upgraded my pc from Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 10 Pro and I'm having problems. I have both SMBX2 Beta 3 and SMBX2 MGL3 Beta 4 installed so I can try out levels and stuff made with either. Both used to run perfectly on Windows 7 Ultimate but now only SMBX2 MGL3 does. SMBX2 Beta 3 will not go passed the launcher, when I click "play" it does nothing at all and it used to close the launcher and launch SMBX 1.3.1 with the Lunalua code injector making it SMBX2 Beta 3 ! What could be going wrong? I checked and my antivirus is not flagging anything SMBX related from either version as a virus.

System Specs:
CPU: AMD Fx 8150 8-core Processor (3.60Ghz)
RAM: 8 GB (7.9GB is usable)
OS: Windows 10 Pro (64 bit) Version 1903
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series
GPU RAM: 5070 MB

Edit: I can get SMBX2 to run by running the legacy 1.3.1 launcher, however that also means no lunalua code runs making some Episodes operate incorrectly.

I'm aware of that but when I try to run SMBX2 Beta 3... nothing happens when I click play. I do have both required vc redistributable for x06 and x64 installed and it did run from the SMBX2 launcher prior to the upgrade. I need help other then being told it should work. I'm aware of that but for some reason it isn't working on my machine.

Edit: MGLx3 version is a release for Beta 4 for the Make a Good Level 3 Contest. I'm aware it isn't the official release of Beta 4 and only intended for that contest, however people are still making levels and stuff for it.

Edit2: I am sorry if anything I say comes off as rude. I am a very blunt person and speak what I feel often without a filter. I mean no disrespect now or in the future.

Can I provide screenshots or do you want me to write out every file in and every directory in each installation?

I think he means the directory where SMBX is installed

Okay well both are not installed, they were in zip form and placed in a folder along with other games on my desktop. Are you trying to help me check to see if any files are missing?

Um. If they're on your PC, they're installed.

I'm actually somewhat worried that the MAGLX3 version was in zip form... the official download from the website is an installer, and the official version of beta 3 is a .rar file. Where did you get these from?

I got them form the official site. I'm sorry I specified the wrong compression format, yes Beta 3 for in rar when I got it. I've had a long day I got confused a little. Yes MGLX3 was installed from an installer to a folder on my desktop like Beta 3 and that is not causing an issue. MGLX# runs just fine, it's the SMBX2 launcher that comes with Beta 3 that won't launch the game.

So, will you tell us the names of the installation folders and directories? There are a couple things I wanna check for that SMBX2 tends to cough at.

Wait, did you extract all of the SMBX B3
files out of the RAR?

Does anyone else have the PostImages problem? Frankly, it annoys me that sometimes I can't view pictures.

Yes I extracted all files correctly.
Update: I fixed it, sort of. I deleted an Episode from the Worlds folder called NSMBDS and the launcher works correctly now. I'm not sure why that caused it not the work. According to the dev it was made in SMBX2 Beta3 I actually wanted to play that one too.
