D2x-XL Descent 2 Vertico "Can't Read Descent2.HAM"

Post by hoover1979 » Fri Mar 25, 2016 3:53 am

I tried running Descent 2 Vertigo on my dads windows 10 Machine and after the briefing I got:

Error: Can't read Descent2.HAM

I don't know if this is a windows 10 thing and can't find out for sure atm as I am spending Easter with my folks.

I will update this on Monday (In Australian Central Time) if this happens on my Windows 7 PC.

If descent 2 runs, why can't it read the .HAM file for Vertigo.

If more info is needed please ask me to elaborate and I will do my best.

My Dad's specs: (This is where I am having trouble now)

windows 10 (x64)
Unknown PSU
2nd Gen i5-2500K 3.2Ghz
Ordinary fan for CPU
16Gb 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM
1Gb GTX550Ti
Realtek integrated Sound

My PC Specs: (Cant test here, until I return home on Monday)
Windows 7 Pro (X64)
Antec 60w PSU
ASUS Z79K Motherboard
4th Gen i7-4790k 4.0Ghz
Noctua NH-L12 CPU Cooler
32Gb Corsair Vengeance Pro 2400mhz DDR3 RAM
4Gb Gigabyte GTX970 G1 Gaming
1.5Tb internal HDD

Logitech F-710 Wireless Controller
Logitech Extreme 3D Pro FlightStick

Needles to say my Home PC is more suited for Gaming, but was waaaay too heavy to move with a bad back.
