As the title says, I'm sick of it : I never asked for help because I knew this problem was from my PC, and so, it would be hard to find a problem related to the game itself. But now I'm tired of having to reinstall it over and over so I hope someone will know the answer.

The thing is, since I registered and downloaded the game, I have always that same issue : sometimes, it will open fine, etc. When I'm done, I close it. Nothing weird. But when I re-open it later, ... it just won't! There's a little white square that stays for like 1 second and then I just get the ''The Endless Forest'' on my side bar like if it was minimized or something. I click on it and nothing happens. Sometimes, if I wait, I can hear all the forest sounds. So there I close it. What do I do? I reinstall it. I have the setup on my desktop (which is soooo dramatic, fff!), ready to be used because I've been doing this everytime it won't work. Sometimes I just need to reinstall it once a day, sometimes I need to resintall it every time I want to open it.

The main boring thing is that if I want to 'play it' for real, I have to open it (max. sized...), change my preferences, log in, set it 'open in mini window' (something like this), close it, move my data (yeah, with this horrible problem I better use it) and open the Forest and enjoy.

But I'm so tired of having to reinstall it each time it doesn't want to open...

Have installed the most recent driver for your videocard?

No'p, I installed Windows pack 2 now, it does the same thing.
Do we have to pay to get that update...? Where can I see the properties of my actual videocard...? :/

Videocard drivers are updated all the time. The ones included with any Microsoft update are never the latest. That being said, it may be harder to find drivers for a notebook than for a desktop.

To find information about your system, run dxdiag (though I don't know where the "Run..." menu item is on Windows Vista... Crying or Very sad )

    (The run in Vista is at the bottom of the menu Smile )

    Thank you I found it! My drivers are by NVIDIA... I hope we don't need to pay for new updates though?

To answer your question, no. Drivers, all drivers, are always free.

Go to www.nvidia.com and the Drivers support/download section should give you the option to automatically scan your hardware for the correct drivers that you need. Smile

Some are good. Others not so. It really depends on the model.

Yay updates! Looks good now, since I updated it I didn't have to resintall it or anything.
Thanks to all of you!
