    UNABLE TO LAUNCH

    Every time you try to start the game you get an annoying pop up instead, and if you do get it to run it crashes for no apparent reason!

    • On Steam:
      • Open your Steam Library
      • Right-click “Broken Sword: Director’s Cut”
      • Open “Properties”
      • Select “Local Files”
      • Select “Verify integrity of game files…” and let it do its thing
      • Select “Browse…”
      • In the Windows window double-click on “OpenAL32.dll”
      • Run the installation as admin
      • Follow the installation instructions
      • Reboot for good luck!

     

    • On GOG.COM:
      • Our first advice is to start with a clean re-install
      • Download OpenAL
      • Unzip the files
      • Copy these newly unzipped files into your Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse install directory
      • Reboot for good luck!

     

    • On Mobile:
      Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse has been on the App Store & Google Play Store since 2009. While we were focusing on our latest games and projects we haven’t kept up to date with the latest OS versions and phone aspect ratios. So if the app doesn’t launch on your device any more, and doesn’t show up for you as a purchase option it’s because we unlisted it on the devices we knew it wouldn’t work properly on. While we can’t promise you an exact date, we want you to know that we’re already looking into allocating the time and finding out what resources it would take to update our mobile games. Thank you for your patience!
