Batman Arkham City qa_approved_build _january_2011 Error : An Encore

September 9, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Scenario contd… : You have obtained the highly anticipated game : Batman Arkham City. It is over 14 GB’s in Size. You have fiiiiiiiiiinally downloaded it. You install it…which takes a looooooooooong time. Finally it’s done!!!! Now you try to run it…and what’s this ?? A Message box pops up saying something like “Fatal Error”. Its Hellish, ain’t it ?? What do you do ??

Solution contd…: This is the follow up to my previous post. While the above error appears when you try to run the game, sometimes the error pops up after you have properly run the game and completed a fair percentage of the story-line. You have gone through my previous post but DirectX is already updated and the solution does not work. so what do you do ??  Unfortunately, the answer is simple but not easy.

I encountered the error box shown below after i recently tried to re-install the game and play it. The error came when i reach the Menu page, the game just hangs, does not render the menu and plain crashes after showing the below message.

First lets understand why and when we have this error, this error occurs(such is my understanding…) when you have modified your local profile knowingly or unknowingly, for e.g. you have moved/deleted your save game location at “C:\Users\You\Documents\WB Games\Batman Arkham City”(onWin7), at such a time, the menu fails to render and you get the above message….in fact, to my understanding, this is the only error message you get whenever the game fails.

Anyways, to solve this error, what needs to be done is you have to create a new offline profile and use that as your basic profile, I know that this will remove your current progress in the game(that’s why the fix ain’t easy) but it atleast gets the game running again(worked on mine). Here are the steps to create a new offline profile :

When the game loads(before going into the menu screen), click on the “Home” button, this will give a panel at the top which will have the option to logout your current profile(this is the profile in which you are facing the above error). Logout of your corrupted profile, now a new window will appear to create your profile, scroll to the bottom of the window where there will be a link to create a local/offline profile, select it and create your new profile. Now your game should work properly with the new profile.

That should do it. Hope this helps you. I f you have any queries, post in the comments below and I will try to help as best as I can

    Well this does “work”, I even tried deleting my account, and reloging to it, but it’s not working…

    I just lost 70+ hours of save because I changed Steam location… The worst thing is that I can play Arkham Asylum without any problem, which is also running GfW, and which was also moved from a first hard drive to an other…

    And when I just wanted to play the + mode again, now I should do all the game again for this… Well, I’ll probably never launch this game again because of all that…

    Also, if I wanted to play again, I obviously can’t do it with my live account, so whetever I get a new achievement, I won’t get any of the points on my Xbox Live Account… Do you know any way to perform a clean uninstall of the GfW and Arkham City ? Appart from formatting my whole computer ?

      replying to both your comments, usually the problem is very small(or in your case, change of settings) and the file missing is hardly 2-3 kb but that just screws up the whole game. regarding clean uninstall, i know only one way, the master way that you mentioned, a complete format (although you could just try copying the save files and copying it into the same directory….dont know if it will work or not….just a hunch)
      try the same for your new profile that you created(copying the save files that is), you might not have to play the whole game again….but tell you what i will look into this and if something turns up i will mail you….lets hope we can find a solution….:)
