Batman Arkham City qa_approved_build _january_2011 Error : An Encore
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.
