Re: HELP!!! i cant install oni!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you aren't even able to install the game, how come you've tried out all the "modified textures and scripts"? Did I miss something? Furthermore you've to be more specific about your problem, like what OS are you running, do you get an error etc.

If you're not able to remove that smudge, it might just be that causing your problem. I'm not really good at household stuff, so I can only suggest you to look at Amazon or eBay for a new disk. tongue

Dust is not a problem -- if you put a dusty disc into your drive, the dust will blow/burn off (and some of it may end up in your computer, but I don't consider that a big deal).  Smudges are not necessarily an issue either.  Usually it's the damage you *don't* see that causes data corruption; tiny scratches or micro-tears in the aluminum foil layer, and neither scratches nor tears can be repaired.  As TOCS mentioned, you should be able to find a new secondhand disc for just a few dollars.

However, you still haven't told us what is going wrong.  What kind of error are you getting when you try to install?


byproducts are fine, but where's the beef?

Re: HELP!!! i cant install oni!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think when he mentioned smudges that can't be cleaned, it's like when something gets in behind the thin layer of plastic, causing a rainbow like effect. I know this sounds retarded, but I've tried it with a few of my CDs/DVDs, and I've no clue how it came, or how to fix it. The part with the smudge becomes unreadable, which I believe is the reason why he can't fully install the game.
