Trouble getting Redball's Express to run

Post by illumined » 2020-01-19 22:03, Sunday

I played People's General some years ago and recently decided to get back into it. I located an ISO and successfully installed it. I started it up and it loaded just fine. I found Redball's Express mod remembering how great it was, and that's when the problems started. First i unzipped it to the installed directory, then when I hit the exe but instead of loading the screen went black for a couple of seconds before returning to the Windows Explorer. I tried the alternative method which is to install it to it's own folder, then copy CINE and all those other folders from the game directory.

Then I got a mss32.dill missing error. Looking up what that was I tried downloading it from the dll library website and then got this error:

"PeG030f0xp.exe Entry Point Not Found"
"The procesure entry point_AIL_init_sample@4 could not be located in the dynamic link library mss32.dll"

Then it occured to me to try and find it from the original game installation's mss32.dll file, which i dropped into the Redball Express folder. Now when I try double clicking the Redball exe it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Any tips on how to get the mod to work?

By the way I noticed the old Redball Express forum was deleted, what happened?

Thank you, I will try it out. Too bad Redball disappeared from the internet, it used to be a great mod.
