Erhm, is the error that the game reports alike this:

An Assertion failed In F:\Torment\source\chitin\ChVidPal.cpp at line number 1124

If so, you need to reinstall the game and remove the CD/DVD from your drive before you install any mods... but before you install any mods, to make sure start the game and make sure you can get pass this bug... and install the patch if you need it... and follow the guide here.

Why do I need to reinstall a game that was just installed? That makes no sense.

Because the computer thinks the mod stored the data into your CD/DVD ... and now it's searching the data from there, but fails.

OK. I followed your instructions to a tee, exactly as you said and also followed the instructions on that web site exactly as told. Still got the error. I think the error is coming from the Ghostdog UI.

Other than the fact that this assertion seems to be somehow related to the CD/DVD drive, I really can't see how and if my UI affects this.

Have you used a no-cd crack ? These cracks tend to break things with PST.

Maybe you could try making Images of your PST CDs and installing the game from a virtual drive (Daemon Tools) and see if this solves your problem.

No. I am not using a no CD crack and I have also tried an ISO as well. It still wont work. I know that when the UI is not installed though, even with every other mod installed, including the widescreen mod, it works fine. Its when the UI gets installed that the error shows up.

I think you need to download this: http://www.mediafire...owdf9471au0mqn4 and then drop it into your game folder. Worked for me.

No solutions to this yet? I'm fairly sure it's not a CD/DVD issue, as I'm using the GOG version which doesn't/shouldn't have anything to do with a CD/DVD drive. And it only has to do with the UI mod, as others have said. All other mods work fine. It's only when the UI mod is installed that it crashes. Uninstall it, and it works again. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Win7 64 here.

AND, it seems to only happen when dialogue is initiated (with anyone). Not sure if that helps narrow it down...

I get the same error with a line "no valid video modes supported" when I try to start the game with the UI mod, works fine otherwise, I also have GOG version and Win XP 32bit..

I tried my native 1920x1080 res and also 1280x1024

Make sure you start a new game each time you change the resolution (including the first time). But in my case, I've done that each time and it doesn't affect the issue.

Found out the "work around" that works - setting the resolution just to 1024x768

Yep, you're right. I re-ran the setup for 1024x768 and it hasn't crashed yet. It doesn't look nearly as nice, though.  :(

I've been keeping this page open in a tab on my desktop in the hopes that we'd get a solution, or some further information about the possibility of using this mod at higher than 1024x768 resolutions, but it seems to be a dead topic already. Is development on this mod continuing, or completely finished?

Getting a similar error message.  An Assertion Failed in F:\Toment\Source\chitin\chvideo.cpp at line number 4322.  What gets me is that I dont have a F: drive on my computer.

In case you are wondering, the .cpp file is a temporary file the game makes while it's ran.
So try the above helps and come out and say what you did for more help.

Yep, Jarno Mikkola. my Mega Mod FAQ. Use of the BWS, and how to use it(scroll down that post a bit). 
OK, desert dweller, welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand. Ouh, actually it was still snow then.. but anyways.

I had the same error (an Assertion failed...). During the mod instalation I set resolution to 1600x1050 and the game didn't work. Then I reinstall the mod and set resolution to 1600x900 and it helped :) I don't know what does it mean but maybe someone smarter will find this information useful.

thanks for telling, i have a 20 inch samsung monitor which the max resolution is 1600x900, i wonder if there are other widescreen resolutions that arent supported. Btw, did the devs ever used a decompiler to see and possibly change the contents of the .exe file?

I had the same problem. I encountered it when in dialogue with a stone face, tah wants you to get rid of dabus. Solution was to uninstall GhostDog UI, finish dialogue, save, then reinstall it.
