    So you use the original version (not Gold)?

    it's avp gold, from the CD installer.
    screenshot_0177.

    I didn't install the game, I only copied files from CD to SDcard.
    There are maybe files I need ? like the data1.cab, data.tag ? some of the files are probably required for the game or do you think they are only part of the installer?

    I can get all the md5 of my files if useful to you.

    Install it first, then copy them from your install folder.
    I read about that before

    Yeah sorry just allowed embed i look like i dont know how to play cause legit first time i ever played this (as i stated in video always wanted to tho big fan of the series/comics) and well controls are not there. Even with like the keyboard still kinda hard to play.

    But otherwise the game looked ready to me we just need to come up with a user friendly control config for the switch.

    Oh and i used a win10 pc to install and this cool command i found to lowercase all files in a dir but win 10 def works to get the files

    The OP literally states that you need to map your controls first.

    At time of video sir those words did not exist but i tried keyboard too. It was prob me to be honest. If controller mapping is supported we should be good to go.

    Hey why does every thread around here devolve to pissing contests and nit picking? I for one am very happy to be alive during these times. Lets just share knowledge and report issues.

    Lets do it in a positive way.

    213A2EA8-34D6-4F46-9394-6C71B3A18F0E. The game crashes for me just past the AvP logo when the screen is with stars appears.

    I have renamed everything to be lower case in my legal game folder from steam (AvP Classic 2000).

    Please help!

    Did you replace language.txt with the one from the link?

    No logs created that I could find. Where would they save?

    Setup screenshots attached

    Thank you so much for taking your time to look into this. I appreciate it!

    Tried this on the latest atmosphere with a steam install of the game...works fine, now to just figure out controls for the joycons/pro controller lol

    the sticks for alien Left is move forward/backward and turning, Right is look up and down. will try the others tomorrow. but its working :D

    edit: did some basic binding, particularly for shooting and weapon change, so far so good. cant really do too too much due to the limited controls though heh

    hi if not too much pain would you might sharing photos of your setup please? Files and folder heiarchy? I am using Steam install also but my game is crashing on startup. It loads and goes past the AvP logo screen but crashes just as you enter the main menu. I would really appreciate any help!

    If it’s easier I have plaster photos of my file setup a few posts earlier so you could only compare my setup with yours? Wondering if there is anything abnormal there?

    If you followed the OP instructions to the letter.. Why is your FMVs folder named wrong?

    Also my "CD Tracks.txt" is Caps like that and still seems to work. I did not rename anything from my PC installation apart from the language.txt file.

    Having the FMVs in lower case wouldn’t make any difference though and besides the Fmvs are not used for this release. Somewhere here was said that you can even safely deete the folder out and the game would launch still.. unless I’m horribly mistaken? I will try what you said though and try to launch with vanilla Steam install files and see if it helps. Thanks!
