"Damn! Oni crashed"

Hello, I recently purchased Oni. However when I attempt to install it it comes up with the message: 'Damn! Oni crashed' as it has done to many people. I read somewhere that I need to replace the dll. file however I am not sure how to. If anyone can tell me how to fix this so I can play the game it would be great. Thank you.

Search around on the Mod directory on Oni2.net for Daodan DLL. That should fix your problems.

Re: "Damn! Oni crashed"

installing AE is a better solution if his problem is opening the game not the oni installer.

Re: "Damn! Oni crashed"

I would do all of this but I do not know how to do most of what you guys are talking about xD Sorry, also thank you for responding. I should probably be able to figure it out by downloading this stuff but if I have any other questions I will ask if that's okay. Thanks again.

Re: "Damn! Oni crashed"

Put it alongside your Oni.exe.
If your exe isn't compatible get a new one from the AE.

Re: "Damn! Oni crashed"

Let me just say one thing, everything that you have all told me how to do, I don't know how to do. I'm completely new to this and it's unlikely anyone else is going to respond but I don't where to out these files you're talking about. I downloaded them but I don't know what to do with them.

Re: "Damn! Oni crashed"

1) Are you on PC or Mac?
2) Do you know the location of your Oni.exe / Oni.app ?
3) How do you start the game? Directly or via shortcut?

Re: "Damn! Oni crashed"

1) PC
2) I do not know the location.
3) Via shortcut from my desktop, or when I put the disc in I click on the window that pops up.

Re: "Damn! Oni crashed"

Right-click the shortcut in your desktop and click on "properties". A dialog (window) will open. There, you should be able to find a field with a caption called "Target" by it's side. In that field, is the location to your Oni.exe. Like in this picture:

shortcut_properties.gif

See the Target field with the inscription "C:\Program Files\Kolban\Webcam32\WEBCAM32.exe"? Yours should be similar.

Re: "Damn! Oni crashed"

Thank you. Once I get to the "Target" what do I do from there?

Re: "Damn! Oni crashed"

Now you know where you're Oni is located .. Click on the find target .. The window should open .. There you see your Oni.exe and bink32.dll and other files .. Now u get the bink32 you downloaded and put it there instead of the old bink32.dll ... The end.

If you want to install AE and make use of the many new mods it involves more steps.

Re: "Damn! Oni crashed"

Thanks and I don't think I'll need AE. I'm actually just transferring from the PlayStation2 version to the PC for a walkthrough. My Dazzle Capture Card was pretty crappy so I figure'd it might run better on my computer.

Re: "Damn! Oni crashed"

Quick question, the game works fine but how do you save? I got it to work and I played through the first two levels just as I did on the PS2, however when I went to play it again my progress was not saved. If anyone knows how to save in this game it would be very helpful.

Re: "Damn! Oni crashed"

Saving is automatic, so if you go back into Oni later and find no savepoints, then your game folder must be locked.  Windows is trying to write to persist.dat and can't.


byproducts are fine, but where's the beef?
