the trials and tribulations of getting srf files

Postby tbcr » Fri Apr 15, 2011 5:17 pm

the rant goes like so

about a few days ago, i received a copy of You Don't Know Jack Vol 1. i was filled with glee, excited that i could answer more trivia questions.

then......theres this

i pop the cd in and install the game, then clicking on the bald head that is the exe, i get this

"ydkj.exe cannot open because a file is missing or damaged (jackart.srf)":arg:

now on the mad scale, i was a 2, so checking the disc directory i discover that the main srf files (jacattack, gibbsound, rnd1recap) were missing from the disc

skip ahead about 2 days (around yesterday), i am searching the tubes of the internet, trying to find the srf files in a megaupload upload. that is made more difficult as it seems that all of the ydkj downloads are torrents (which my computer refuses to download.

whats a gamer to do?

Did you purchase this game or was it...er...questionably acquired?

If you did purchase it through legal means (or if it was a gift bought for you), I would seriously consider giving the company that produced the game or the store that was selling the game a call. You shouldn't have to pay for something that doesn't work and is missing the correct files. The company and/or store should give you a refund and/or a replacement.


...If you acquired it by more questionable means though...I think you might be out of luck. ^^;;

it was a used copy i bought from amazon for about $2.75

since Jellyvision (the company that makes the games) did not have any new copies in stock, i had to go to 15 different stores in the tri-county area just to get a bargain bin copy

now, finally, i am content
