I am trying to play yuor game but it crashes as soon as I try to play (after the team selections). I am on windows 10 x64.

Go to your windows 10 search bar and type in "Administrative tools", then find "Event Viewer" open it and go to "Windows Logs" and then expand the "Applications" selection. In there somewhere near the top, you should find 2 error reports related to the crash (it will say superbloodhockey.exe). If you could paste the entire error message here that would be very helpful!


I suspect it might be a missing .dll file related to Windows Media Player because once the game starts it queues the music, and this is a known error I have encountered in the past related to XNA Games. :) You could quickly try reinstalling Windows Media Player to see if it fixes it. If not the error report will tell us what is going wrong.

That is rather strange, does this error occur everytime you try to play a game? What if you change up some of the options, teams, etc? Try running the game in window'ed mode and see if that changes anything.

I got it working. I wasn't moving the controller type under the team. Everything is working now. Thanks

Ah! that makes sense! That is my fault though, you shouldn't be able to start a game with no controllers xD oops. I will have to fix that :D

Hey, I had the same problem just now. I realised it happens when you do not select a side when on the controller screen and you leave it blank. Make sure when it lists all the controllers to select left or right with mouse or keyboard. Then it should work. It kept crashing when i tried to start a game and no controller was selected.


Thumbs up on the game, it was real fun even though i lost to sweden 8-6 :(. Are you planning to build out the whole thing, career and all?

Yup you are correct! That is my mistake, it shouldn't be possible to not select any controllers xD but I guess that is the point of a Beta anyway hehe. I am glad you had fun with the game! I am definitely going to develop it much further including a career mode. thanks again!

Thanks so much folks! I wasn't selecting a controller either... I'm a fool.

Nah my fault. It shouldn't be possible xD
