Agixp problems, and a call for open source hacking programs

(in reply to Cheesetendo, but moving this to a separate thread, since the original was supposed to be about scripting)

Well I'm sorry, I'm not really sure what else to tell you. I'm in a bit of a fix, because I seem to be one of only a handful of people who get Agixp to work, and almost never have any major difficulty in getting it to work (other than "FM20.dll cannot be found" or whatever, which took like a minute to fix). Since I don't ever run into these problems, i don't know from experience how to fix them. Meaning all I can really do is google the error codes that you people post and try to look for solutions that way. I wish I could help more, I really do, but at this point I have posted all that I know to do about getting Agixp to work. I thoroughly do not understand why it works fine for some people and absolutely refuses to run for others.

Maybe its time someone wrote a new program like Agixp, that was open-source and cross platform. As the only language I know (and I'm no master of it yet either) is Visual Basic, I'm not the man for the job, but maybe someone else would be able to. That way we can have a program that does the same things and more, works on multiple platforms, and is more easy to trouble shoot because we will be able to see and tweak the source, unlike Agixp.

There are DLLs out there for decompressing the graphics, the compression routine itself is documented in places, and pretty much all of the pointer tables for sprites and things are documented around. It shouldn't be too difficult for someone with the know-how to make us a good replacement. If anyone is willing to try to undertake this, I'll try to help out with any location information and other documentation I can find to help them out, although I wouldnt be of much use helping code yet.

I can't seem to put my finger on it, agixp worked absolutely fine on WINDOWS7, and it didn't ask for any of the DLL files :(,

Re: Agixp problems, and a call for open source hacking programs

Let's see, trying to think of anything else I can think of.

When I first installed this copy of windows, before I copied my files back over, I installed:

.Net Framework 2.0
Libraryfiles.exe
Microsoft Office 2003 (If I'm not mistaken, this is another program that includes fm20.dll and some other files like that)

Also from the start, it had:

Mozilla Firefox
Mozilla Thunderbird
Partition Wizard Home Edition
CCleaner
Ultra Defrag
iTunes
IZarc
KLite Codec Pack

That I slipstreamed into the install disk while I was adding the drivers for my laptop.


I know that even back in the day, back around 2006 or so when I didn't have a laptop yet and used the family computer, I could get Agixp to run. But it also had Office 2003 installed, and the .net framework 2.0, and I think I may have ended up having to install libraryfiles.exe back then to get agixp to run. Thats all I can think of off my head that could be relevant.

Re: Agixp problems, and a call for open source hacking programs

Lets continue , ehh.. i hate this OS, the VBR ain't instaling , i tried the microsoft net framework , and it isn't installing either.
Well the framework is installing but it says that it isn't compatible, but for the VBR as i said it shows up install bar , doesn't do for a second and disappears.

Re: Agixp problems, and a call for open source hacking programs

Where did you get the .net framework for it to claim it isn't compatible? Because I know for a fact it is, since I install it with 0 problems on every copy of XP I've ever run including this one. Also no idea why the runtimes won't install either. Considering XP is like the best windows OS in terms of compatibility, useability, and generally everything, I can't understand how you could hate it unless something is messed up with your copy.

To install the .net framework, try this way:

-Run windows update from the start menu
-Click the button for "Custom" instead of "Express"
-Let it search for updates available
-Select any high-priority updates, then on the side click "Software Optional"
-Scroll down the list and you should find the .net framework in there. I don't see 2.0 in the list on mine because I already have it installed, but it should be there for you. If it isn't, try installing .net framework 1.1 and then run it again, and it should list 2.0 as an update


Or if if that doesn't work, I'll just post a sendspace link to the .net framework install file I've been using without problems since like 2005

EDIT: I went ahead and uploaded it, so you can skip going through windows update and just run this file.

By the way, since you seem to be having problems I've never seen with XP, where did you get this copy? Like is it from a normal CD or is it something like "Tiny XP"

Re: Agixp problems, and a call for open source hacking programs

I have only ever tested it in 98, XP, and Vista and I currently only have XP as none of my computers are running 98 anymore and Vista can rot on its CD because it is crap haha. I don't have access to windows 7, but I don't know if it will work there or not. Maybe someone with a copy of windows 7 can help you though!
