I installed the game and my brother was playing it fine. Now when i went to get on all i get is the auto play and when i click play it goes black and then straight to the crash. Anyone know what wrong with it?

You might have made some bad setting.

Go to "My Documents/Penumbra Overture/Episode One/" and delete settings.cfg, start the game again.

Is this happening because you are using the play option in a auto-run menu from the cd?

Have you tried launching the game directly with the penumbra.exe? If you locate the installation dir, and go into the redist folder you'll find the Penumbra.exe.

I've tried penumbra.exe and the auto run. Using the actual path doesn't help. My penumbra.exe was in the redist folder not the install folder though. I still don't know what's wrong.

I've tried penumbra.exe and the auto run. The ones installed on the computer don't help and using the actual path doesn't help. My penumbra.exe was in the redist folder not the install folder though. I still don't know what's wrong.

Could you post the contents of the 'hpl.log' file? You can find it in (your My documents folder)\Penumbra Overture\Episode1
