Istiaq,

Can you provide an option to install sound.zip as well? this doesnt come with City Of Heroes. Just like you have an option to download COH, we should also have thqt option as well.

I launch the program, but it just sits a black screen with the "Hero Virtual" bar up at the top. After a while it pops up telling me it isn't responding.

If I continue to wait, I just get more black screen. If I close it, it goes into CoH (which I think was open behind the program). At which point I'm essentially just in Icon as far as I can tell, with a bit of delay on the camera. I tried running the program again once in out of curiosity, but it just crashes both programs.

I tried waiting 10-15 minutes before cancelling the program the first time. So unless it is just taking an abnormal amount of time to open, I'm not sure it's actually loading. Though, the installers took a long time to pop up after clicking on them originally as well, if that means anything.

I'm tempted to just leave it running for a while, while I go do something else. And check back on it a few hours later to see if it ever loaded.

It does take a long time on first load.

One thing to try is to leave icon open, then re-run HeroVirtualtabletop. Let me know if that works

In all honesty I do not think the program is ready. It keeps crashing. I was forced to power down the laptop because all memory resources were used. Now afterwards I try to run the program it crashes all the time. If by some chance Icon starts successfully I attempt to open the editor then it crashes. So I am not sure what I can do here. I think more work needs to be done, but it was a good effort.

Left it running for about 30-40 minutes, and Icon crashed. HeroVirtualtabletop never fully opened, just sat on a black screen the entire time.

With Icon open first, it crashes almost instantly.

I know about the black screen in the first run, but from subsequent runs it should have been fine. I will investigate again and let you know. Sorry about all the trouble!!!

Also it seems the way the program is designed, It is not integrated into Icon. So each time I play with the program the sounds in game cut out because Icon is no longer active window which means I won't be able to hear the powers go off when i activate them.

Guys here is the updated installer - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/cifthcex7kzmvtz/AAD0KPCQUwE_hXKwzLwBbJxca?dl=0
It gets rid of the black screen. Feed it the sound.zip file from https://www.dropbox.com/s/otgdnq6xfs8c7x8/sound.zip?dl=0
Please try it out and let us know.

A few things for new users-
1. When you're running this application it will be, for now, the topmost window all the time. This might be a bit annoying when you want to switch to other stuff like browsers or other applications you were using. We will work on it in future. For now you might want to keep other apps/browsers with smaller windows when launching the virtual desktop app, so that you can still work on them if required.
2. If the game crashes (it will occasionally), just close the desktop app. There is a close menu on TOP LEFT. Click on top left of the blue bar and you will see the option.
3. If you constantly see some error scenario, please report to me and Jeff. It will be more helpful for us to debug if you can send us the log file. The log file is in the Log folder in the installation directory. To ensure logs to be written, please run the app in administrator mode. You can also run the app in normal mode, it won't be any issue. Just that the logs might not get written if you have installed in Program Files.

Also for now the sound is not integrated into ICON, its a separate player. Recommend you turn down COH sound / music for now, until we figure out a way to get sound played from COH, which is not a trivial processs.

Please also realize that while we are offering the download, this is alphaware, so there will be bugs as it gets installed on computers of different makes and sizes. We will actively work to fix all bugs you encounter as fast as we can, and thank you for your patience and help.

Another thing I find weird is when I start the game and switch to another window the game does not crash, but also the window that allows you to choose what powers to use does not show up. Now when I make the Coh game the active window the game stops responding then crashes.

By the way, do you guys have footage of yours working. If you do post it up on YouTube it would be great. We can see how you guys set yours up and how the program work.

Sorry about it not still working. We are going through the log files. Also Istiaq can do a remote session with you through team viewer / Remote Desktop to try and help you get it up and running. I plan to post some videos this week and will post to this thread when they are up.

Okay that would be fine. If you've got Skype we can communicate there if you like. Or whatever you guys use to communicate.

Hi, my skype id is istiaq.ahmed.23
I think the issue is due to some missing components in the target environment. For example, it could be VC++ redistributible. I need to check the machine where it is not working to identify what exactly the issue is. Otherwise the log looks fine.
I am available for a session at the following times this weekend:
Friday 8PM - Saturday Midnight
Saturday 5AM - 10AM
These times are in EST
Please have teamviewer installed as well.
