The Lost Crown: A Ghost-Hunting
Q: Clicking the Walkie-Talkie
on Day 3 makes Nigel jump back to the beach.
A: Install the Updater, which can be found here.
Pop-up says: "This application failed to start because d3dx9_34.dll
was not found".
A: Re-install the game, and DO NOT un-tick the 'Install DirectX9.0C'
option. Unticking this option will not install the correct version
of DirectX (needed by Windows to run the game).
Install Tick-Box for DirectX9.0C still doesn't install Direct X
A: A rare occurance, on DirectX10 machines, but if you find the
install doesn't automatically install DirectX9.0C, you can run the
DriectX setup manually from Disk2. Open the contents of the disk,
open DXSetup folder. Then double click the icon called 'DXSetup.exe'.
Note: On Vista the '.exe' part may not be visible due to Vista not
displaying 'file extensions', SO double-click the file called 'DXSetup'.
DirectX9.0C will iinstall, and off you go!
Cannot get the 'Password to work'.
A: US versions of The Lost Crown require a Password to be entered
during installation. The password can be found on the game manual.
Enter the password sequence EXACTLY as shown, including any spaces,
dashes or hyphens. The password is also 'case sensitive', so use
My updater doesn't seem to change the Walkie-Talkie issue.
A: When installing the Updater; make sure you install to the
exact same location as your game files. On XP and Vista, this
is usually Program Files/The Lost Crown. If you changed the
default directory path, you will need to install the Updater
to that location. Secondly, some gamers have reported that
the Updater did not fully download. If your Updater fails
to fix the Walkie-Talkie issue, please download it again,
and re-install. Install the Updater, which can be found here.
