Sent the requested files several days ago, resent today.
Hopefully it isn't a registry issue.

Hello, I was wondering if I need to provide any other information for I haven't had an update in about a week. This game has a fantastic in depth single player campaign, I plan to purchase BB2 legendary edition as well as dungeonbowl so i can get as much BB as possible. But the gem in the crown of these games is bugged :{

Focus Team

The game find available video modes but he cannot select any of them.

Please check that the file 'Config.xml' has been created.
Edit the file with the Notepad.
Set Fullscreen to 0 under <Video>:

<Fullscreen>0</Fullscreen>

Save the file then run the game.

Otherwise, please create the file: Config.xml
Copy and paste the following lines: https://pastebin.com/Z5WLGkrH

Can you run the game now?

I'm so sorry but this game still crashes. After I followed the steps it gave me two crash logs instead of the usual one. If I rebought the title do you think it could fix it? I can l just re-get everything if it'll stop this headache. I have posted all the information possible in my email response.

Bought BB2 LE and its working just fine. It's sad the the first has borked :{

I fired up BB1 CE just to check and its working fine for me. Pretty weird.

@javelin Mine used to work last time I played it I was in a different country I wonder if that's the issue.

Rebought BBCE lets see if this copy works crossed fingers
And bought Dungeon bowl. It uses the same last gen engine so hopefully I get no problems there.

Alright so New copy BBCE and Dungeonbowl both CTD at splash screen 😕 I have no idea what to do. Atleast BB2 LE runs great.
