Might and Magic VI purchase from Uplay error

Postby Jaspergentry » Jul 15 2017, 17:28

Hi,

I bought and downloaded Might and Magic 6 from the Uplay website, however i have an error.

Firstly when i startup up the game an error message firstly pops up saying "Cant open file- Sounds/audio.snl"
But upon closing the error message the game starts.

The game works well when it comes to the starter character creation and credits ect. However when pressing the start button the game freezes and crashes. It has lead me to believe that the Uplay bought game is missing a possible audio file making the game crash.

How may i fix this?
Thanks JG

I have never played this through Uplay, but one thing that stands out to me is what you said regarding "audio.snl".

Shouldn't it be "Audio.SND"? At least, that's what I have in my MM6 copy.

I did some digging around and found these links:

Also, some users have also said that Grayface's patches also solved some crash issues they had.

Hi,
Thanks Anubis those articles really helped.

All i did was uninstall it and reinstall MM6 however this time installed it as the administrator. Then i made sure the files that i had downloaded matched the files that were retrieved off downloading it off GOG.com (i have MM6 on my old PC). They did. Finally i made sure to run MM6 as the administrator (which was the most crucial point) which allowed all files to be accessed.

TY JG

Awesome! I'm happy you were able to get the game working. That game is such a classic and I'd hate to see anyone be deprived of their M&M high!

Game on!
