Before you do anything, make sure that you are using the latest version
of Malloc: 1.2 (version information is displayed at the top of
the game window when not in fullscreen mode, and also in "Add/Remove Programs" window).
If you have an older version, download the latest update
and your problems will probably go away. If not, see FAQ below.
Malloc crashes with an error "Cannot write malloc.ini"
This error can occur when Malloc executable is started from a CD or a shared network
folder. The game has to be able to save its configuration (such as selected difficulty,
your name in multiplayer, etc) to a file (malloc.ini). Do a fresh installation of
Malloc on your harddrive, and everything should work.
Videos do not play
There is an error or crash related to "dx"-something or "DirectX"
I have no more moves left, but Malloc would not end the game anyway!
There is at least one move left. This aspect of Malloc has been very thoroughly tested,
and game always ends when there are no more moves. There is probably some difficult-to-see
diagonal jump left that you are not seeing. Try holding down the <H> key to see
a "hint" about the next move from the AI.
Malloc crashes (other then for reasons listed above)
There are several known bugs in early versions of Malloc (especially in multiplayer).
If not, it's probably my bad! Please consider
with a description of your problem, and I'll try to fix the problem
as soon as possible.
