My ALE (2.1) isn't working properly.

Post by anso ownage » 6 Jun 2006, 19:05

Ok I downloaded ALE 2.1 from

Made a new folder, and extracted all the files into there.
Then I'm running the application, ALE.exe.

It opens the program with no problems, but when the main screen is visible, it opens the messagebox: "DDraw.dll not loaded"

And then.. uhm what the heck.

I try to make a new .lev file.
Then I create an eclipse or something but when i click on the building screen, nothing happends.

Then I try to open an .lev file and, nothing shows up.

Do I miss something?

The building screen is grey all the time. Nothing shows up. :(

This tool looks really cool, and I want to it to work

Please help. :)

there's no need for the LGR file... you just can't add pictures.
