Re: Please help me...

Please try renaming C:\Program files\Oni\GameDataFolder\intro.bik so that the intro movie no longer plays. Tell us what you see then.
Also post a copy of C:\Program files\Oni\startup.txt (if you didn't install Oni into the default location, the path will of course be different).
I'm almost sure someone came up with the very same problem on the previous forum (and I'm almost sure we solved it).
But looking it up may take some time. You can already try searching for "black screen" or something.

And after that you could play the game?

@picius14:
Do what dez-zt says. Here are detailed instructions.
First, find where Oni is on your computer. Normally, it's in C:\Program files\Oni. Go there.
Inside C:\Program files\Oni, there's another folder called GameDataFolder. Open it.
In C:\Program files\Oni\GameDataFolder, there's a file called intro.bik. Rename it (for example to shpadoinkle.bik).
Then try starting Oni again.

"File Explorer" is not the best tool for that, but it's OK.
The only problem is that it may hide the extension ("bik").
(if you see a file called "intro", then it's actually intro.bik)

You open what file "with game"???

not working... i see black screen 2

Make sure you really "eliminated" the intro as dez_zt suggests
(@ dez_zt: please confirm getting rid of the intro worked for you...)

@ picius14 again: if you see no intro, and still get a black screen, try the following:
1) let us look at the text file C:\Program files\Oni\startup.txt (just post the text here)
2) try running Oni with the -noswitch command-line parameter

Re: Please help me...

0) DON'T PANIC smile
1) In your Oni folder (C:\Program files\Oni) there's a file called startup.txt. Please open it, copy the text inside it, and post that text here.
2) Running Oni with "command-line parameters" is not "easy", but all the instructions are HERE. What exactly do you not understand?
3) Please help us if you want us to help you: try to express yourself clearly.
4) If our instructions are not clear enough, tell us what exactly is not clear (quote us).

Re: Please help me...

Thank you.
Two things to say right now (BTW, don't be in such a hurry: we're all busy you know smile )
1) You're having the "black screen" problem with an Nvidia; people on the old forum had ATIs (that's just a thought, not an instruction smile )
2) The "OpenGL extensions" list is long, and the program stops in the middle of it. That means that's where the problem is, probably.

Instructions.
1) Please make sure you have replaced the original Oni.exe with the one you got from HERE. It should work.
2) Because you have an Nvidia, there is another way to fix your problem, without replacing the original Oni.exe. I'll tell you more about it later. Please try (1) first. Report.

Re: Please help me...

Weird. The correct Oni.exe should not write so many items to "OpenGL extensions".
Actually, it should write none... The "OpenGL extensions" list shouldn't be there at all.
So, once again: are you sure you've actually replaced the original EXE with the patched EXE?

can you instrue me what i must do with graphic card

Try to follow the instructions HERE. Report if in trouble.
The GFX driver dialogs may be different from the ones on your system (different version).
Some of the dialogs in the screenshots are in Russian because SFeLi lives in Russia.

Re: Please help me...

roll

What's the problem with THIS? It is a fixed version of Oni.exe.
It's inside a folder, and the folder is inside a ZIP archive. But it's there.

But if you absolutely want to download a plain EXE file... HERE
Please note that it is exactly the same as THIS, except it's not archivated.

P.S. What European country are you from? Maybe we don't have to talk English...

Re: Please help me...

Dear picius,

1)

binkw32.dll is already on your computer. In your Oni folder. It is OK. Why should I upload it?


Did you really try removing (deleting/renaming/destroying) intro.bik?
I mean, really really. C:\Program Files\Oni\GameDataFolder\intro.bik : find it, delete it.
If you did that, then binkw32.dll can not be the problem. look what dez_zt said:

My video card doesn't likes bink videos for some unknown reason, and after deleting them I got rid of the freezing.

2)

It looks like Oni is popular in your country. LOOK smile
In case you can speak Russian, maybe I can help.
Otherwise, please go bother coyote for a change smile

(you can also talk to me in Polish, but I'm not sure I'll understand 100%)

Hope this helps.
