Secret Agent Barbie launches with a black screen

Postby HappySmile33 » Sat Feb 23, 2019 7:05 pm

Hi there. I downloaded Secret Agent Barbie a few days ago from Adventure Legends, uploaded by Scaryfun. The installer and everything else is properly working, except the game which, when I open it, gives me a black screen. I can not close it, unless I hold Ctrl+Alt+Del and open the controller to Log Off or Start Task Manager. I tried running the game in Compatibility Mode (Windows 98/ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP both services), running the setup in Compatibility Mode, running as an Administrator and even replacing the files numerous times - it will show me a black screen every time with no sound, any effect or any other sign the game is actually running. I am not sure if the game requires a crack, since I played it a long time ago and didn't download it from here. Anyways, my OS is Windows 7 (32 bit) Professional, my video and sound drivers are absolutely fine and so are DirectX and 3D (everything is enabled too).

it is a 2001 game that needs Win xp Sp2 with DX9c ...

you could try installing DX9x in Win7 since it only has DX11 that is not backwards compatible with DX6-9c games... or install it in a WM machine win WinXo
