      READ BEFORE REQUESTING ASSISTANCE!   01/23/2016

      Please ensure you have done the following things to posting a request for assistance regarding your problem with your game: 1).Searched the Forum using the search tool located on the top menu. 2).Have your logfile from your game so that it may be reviewed. EX: C:\Program Files\Wizardworks\Emergency 911 First Responders\Logfile.txt. 3).Get your DirectX Diagnostic Log Start: Run: Type in dxdiag and press ok. After it does it's diagnostic save the information and upload it. 4).List your system specs if the information of your hardware does NOT match the DX Diag or information was omitted from the report. Please also remember to use the "Upload" file or "Wrap in Code Tags" options to attatch your DirectX Diagnostic log or your Logfile.txt so that they can be viewed without consuming a large quantity of a page. To upload the file, just browse and select the .txt file and press "UPLOAD" and they will be attatched. The alternative will produce a code box around your choosen text, preserving all coded information as it belongs. To do this you can hit the button found to the left of the "youtube" button and [code}{/code] (replace the }{ with ][) appears, copy and paste your logfiles into the space between the ][ symbols and post. Any post that has the log file directly written in the post without either the code box or attatch feature WILL Be edited/removed. Assistance Requests that fail to do the above mentioned tasks will be virtually impossible to diagnose and assist in repairing. As such, they will most likely remain unanswered or be deleted! If you cannot take the time to attempt to retrieve these things for us to help, why should we take the time to try to help you?

      Emergency 4/Deluxe/911: First Responders System Requirements (Read this first if your game experiences lag)   01/23/2016

      Emergency 4, Emergency 4 Deluxe, and 911: First Responders System Requirements: Minimum System Requirements: Operating System: Microsoft Windows 2000/Windows XP/Windows Vista Processor: 1.7 GHz System Memory (RAM): 512 MB RAM Video Card: DirectX 9-compatible AGP Graphic card. NVIDIA GeForce3 or equivalent chip set with 64 MB RAM Sound: DirectX9-compatible soundcard Hard Drive: 1 GB free hard disk space Online Play Requirements: ISDN for Multiplayer Mode DSL/Cable(High Speed) for server operation in Multiplayer Mode Recommended system configuration: Operating System: Microsoft Windows 2000/Windows XP/Windows Vista Processor: 2.5 GHz System Memory (RAM): 1024 MB RAM (EMP Recommendation: 2 or more Gigabytes of RAM) Video Card: DirectX 9-compatible AGP Graphic card. NVIDIA GeForce 5700 or comparable chip set with 128 MB RAM (EMP Recommendation: GeForce or ATI with at least 256 MB RAM) Sound: DirectX9-compatible soundcard Hard Drive: 2 GB free hard disk space Online Play Requirements: DSL/Cable(High Speed) for Multiplayer Mode Additional Notes: While it may be possible to play this game on a Mobile Computer (Notebook) most notebooks are not intended for gaming and it is possible that you will experience less than desirable game play. Windows Vista requires more resources to function so you should assume that in order to play the game efficiently you will require higher Processor speeds and System Memory (RAM). Please note that online play may experience lag due to your connection or the connections your fellow players may have, it may also experience lag due to one of your fellow player's computers being lower performance machines. The Staff of Emergency-Planet strongly recommends those of you that wish to play the add-on modifications ensure that you have higher performance computers since most of the add-on modifications for this game are much more demanding on your computer's resources than the original game is. Our increased recommendations are not required to play the game, although we suggest that you have higher System Memory (RAM) and a more powerful Video Card than the game manufactuers recommend, especially if you are using modifications.

      Signatures   03/04/2016

      Hi everyone. It appears that the update to the new forum has affected the format of the majority of signatures (adding extra spaces, changing sizes etc.). Due to this, could everyone please check their own signature, ensuring that it complies with the site rules. See the http://www.emergency-planet.com/tos.html/ or http://www.emergency-planet.com/topic/16848-acceptable-signature-sizes/ for more information.  We'll give it a few weeks to give enough time to edit signatures, after that the unnecessarily large signatures will simply be removed. Thanks for your cooperation. Regards, EMP Staff.

You do need to patch EM4 as well. If it's not V1.3 it doesn't have the mod installer.

It may be that a registry key is missing.

I fixed mine this way:

1. Open your favorite plain-text editor.

2. Paste the code below into a new file:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\sixteen tons entertainment\Emergency 4]
"InstallDir"="C:\\Program Files\\sixteen tons entertainment\\Emergency 4"

3. Save the file as 'Emergency4RegistryKeyFix.reg' (technically you can choose any file name you desire, so long as the extension is '.reg' :) )

4. Locate and double-click the registry file you just saved, and choose yes when asked to add the information to the registry.

It may be important to note, however, that the fix may be different for 64-bit computers.

The fix I gave should work on all 32-bit computers.

Did you purchase from Atari?

I purchased mine from them, and mine was installed to the same path as yours.

Try it the exact way I posted first.

If it still doesn't work, uninstall Em4 and then reinstall to 'C:\Program Files\sixteen tons entertainment\Emergency 4', then run the key exactly as I posted it. This is what I ended up doing and it worked. :)

Edit:

My bad, the issue right now is that the key isn't being imported. You'll need to open up regedit (with admin privileges) and add the key there. I don't have Vista/W7, so I'm afraid I can't give you a step-by-step (though I can show you where to put the key if you'd like). :)

Edit 2:

I did some research (on registry keys in general for Vista/W7), and what I posted should add properly.

What plain-text editor did you use? Make sure word-wrap is turned off and that there are no unnecessary line breaks or spaces.

okay, the registry fix file he posted up earlier in the forum. YOu copy all of it. Even the windows registry editor part. COPY ALL OF IT to notepad and save it as whatever you want with the file extension .reg then open it and say yes to what it says. It should be fixed.

I'm having the same problem. I don't think it has to do with the ModInstaller though.

This probably needs to have its own thread. ;)

More than likely the Mod package is just damaged (bad download or packaged incorrectly). What mod is it?

I have put in the registry file and the mod installer now work. However, when I first tried to install a mod (m-60 english version), I got a pop-up window that said that the file was corrupted. I re-installed it, but I got the same message so I tried another mod (m-60 beta). I got the same results from that mod. Not to be discouraged, I then tried two other mods (the NYC mod and the US Army mod) and the same window just kept popping up. I use 7-zip and I have the 911: First Responders download from Amazon. I also had to change the directory to "Computer/Local Disk (D:)/Emergency 4/911 - First Responders" due to a lack of memory in the default directory. Do I need to change the .reg file to account for the directory change or are the mods getting corrupted because of the download? Thank you if can help.

Yes, you need to change the .reg file to match the directory. Apparently the value tells the mod installer where to look for the 'Mods' folder, so if it doesn't match the game root directory, the mod installer won't work properly.

 

What I typed below might still be useful if you're having problems though, as I found it can be an issue as well (though less likely).

I've messed around a bit, and I have a question that might seem silly, but do you have a 'Mods' folder in the game root directory?

If not, create one and then run the mod installer. Based on testing it just now, the mod installer does throw a 'The mod package is corrupted' error if the 'Mods' folder doesn't exist.

Where is Emergency 4 installed on your computer? Post the full path so I can help you a little better.

Also, please post (in code tags) what you put in the registry file to try and fix it, that way I can see if there are any issues there as well. :)
