Hi everyone, I want to ask everyone to help me solve this error. It happened when I downloaded someone else's game from GG Drive. And when I ran the game, it failed to enter and showed this "SwitchBoard.exe - Application Error The application was unable to start correctly (Oxc0000005)". Thanks a lot.1669996771931.png

Hello everyone, I'm newbie. Is this web still alive? Sorry if my question is annoying, but this error makes me feel very sad because it does not allow me to open the Playtest function in the game maker MV.

if you didn't made it, it wont open in playtest, and from the error, it might
be a vxa game (which may require the RTP runtime package) in order to run it.

MV doesn't have that error when deployed so far I know it.

if it's your game, than we need more details on it.

Yes, but it's all volunteers here. We have lives and you asked over the weekend. Additionally, we're not supposed to post again in a thread until it's been 72 hours - so please be patient.

MV Support is really for using the RPG Maker editor software. For support with a game you purchased, you really ought to be reaching out to the person who is selling the game, as we have no idea what they might have done to it.

Your second post is very confusing - are you trying to play the game you got, or trying to open it as a project in MV? You generally cannot open/edit games made by other people unless they explicitly allow it.

Googling the error code, it appears to be a Windows error in relation to drivers, so perhaps check that your graphics drivers are up to date and are from the card manufacturer (not Microsoft).

Thanks a lot, I'll reconsider the issue

Sorry if I'm bothering you and everyone. My English is a bit poor so I may have used some disrespectful words. For my second article, I mean I want to open my project. And I also tried a few things on GG but it didn't seem to work... Anyway, then I went to refresh my laptop, deleted all the data and it was reusable. Thank you for your suggestions to me

been using old character designs I had from high school for npcs in my game. seeing as the original idea of my game was a comic, I've got a LOT of designs for characters sitting around. a lot of people aren't a part of the story anymore, so I'll make 'em npcs.
I am doing the evaluation of the feedback from the students who played my game and the comments are killing me. "it was good, we just did not have any smart trains of thought" xD
My goal this month will be to get back to organizing assets and make a prototype scene with multiple airships hovering or flying over the world map.
Having a hard time getting playtesters for one of my Unity games. No one seems to be interested. :/
