Thanks for this.To solve the problem some more info would be helpful.

 

What version of windows are you using?

What button do you press to produce that error message?

 

That message suggests that either the launcher can't get write access to that file or something else is using the file. I'll have a look at this tomorrow.

Sure, no worries.

I'm running Windows 7 Professional (64 bit)

The error message appears after I press "run without cds"

I think I've fixed it. Sometimes Monkey4.exe is read only when the game is installed. The launcher now changes this if it finds it.

 

I've updated the downloads above with new versions.

 

Yep, that did the trick. Thanks man, love your work. Now I've just been testing the custom resolutions...is it meant to have strange cutting marks/lines on the screen for anything but default? I assume that's just a bug that hasn't been fixed yet?

Hi Benny,

I've tried your installer: it works just fine.

I've tried your launcher: when I click on "play", nothing happens. I checked the task manager, Monkey4.exe is sitting there doing nothing and just keeps my cpu busy for no reason.

 

Thanks for your hard work,

Andrew

 

EDIT: I'm running Windows 8.1 x64, I have the Italian version

Thanks for trying it. I really wanted people with different language versions to try it so thanks for that. I'd like to get it working for all versions not just English. If you could answer some of these questions it would be very helpful:

 

Before you clicked play:

Did you change the resolution?

Did you run the nocd patch?

Did you go into options and update the game to v1.1 ?

Does the game work if you just run Monkey4.exe without the launcher?

All of those things involve patching Monkey4.exe so its possible one of those are causing it to hang.

Thank you.

If Monkey4.exe doesnt work on its own then I suspect its a problem with the nocd patch. As the nocd patch is the only thing that directly changes that file.

 

If you go to options in the launcher and click "run without cd's" again - it should remove the patch. You'll also need to then change the resolution again.

 

So please try:

Disabling the nocd patch

Changing the resolution back to 640x480 default

Seeing if the game works

Changing the resolution to whatever you want

Seeing if the game works.

If none of that works then it suggests that the game just doesn't work on your computer. The nocd patch is the only thing that changes Monkey4.exe - once this is removed then Monkey4.exe should be just as it was when the game was installed.

 

If you have the time, then uninstall the game, reinstall it and don't even use the launcher. Try playing it just with Monkey4.exe - if it doesn't work then the problem is with your computer - not the launcher program.

I've looked into this further and it looks like the Italian version of EMI is different to the other language versions. The Monkey4.exe is different compared to the other versions and my no-cd patch doesn't work on it.

 

I could probably fix this, but unfortunately I cant find a no-cd patch for v1.1 of the Italian version. If anyone finds one then let me know but until then, the no-cd function wont work for the Italian version.

 

I'm ready to do a proper release of the launcher and installer, I've was waiting to see if I could fix the Italian nocd problem first but I think I'll have to forget about that.

Thanks for that. Unfortunately I cant use it with the launcher as its a crack for all versions - it works by replacing Monkey4.exe.

 

Here's the full explanation:

All versions of Monkey4.exe (except Italian) are 856kb.

The Brazilian, German, French and Spanish versions of Monkey4.exe are all identical.

The English version is slightly different but is still 856kb.

The Italian version is very different and is 1.13mb.

 

My no cd patch works by patching 4 locations in Monkey4.exe. This works for all versions - except Italian.

 

Most cracks (and the one that you've found) just replace Monkey4.exe with a cracked version (the 856kb version). Unfortunately I cant include Monkey4.exe in my launcher as that wouldn't be legal. The only thing I can do is patch Monkey4.exe myself - so I was hoping that someone had cracked the Italian version and I could look at their changes and use them to make a patch that would work specifically on the Italian version.

 

Sadly it looks like this isn't the case so people with the Italian version will just have to find and apply their own nocd patch.

 

Thank you very much for your help with this.

If you find the music doesnt work its probably because that nocd patch doesn't change "FullMonkeyMap.imt" in the Textures folder.

 

You have to add this to FullMonkeyMap.imt
