[Bink] Error Opening file: Not a Bink file

Postby FireFork » 09 Jan 2012, 19:14

Hi, I'm having a problem in Dark Messiah Might and Magic. I recently bought it through steam, and i love it. However, I get a crash every time I grab the Skull of shadows. It says: [Bink] Error Opening file: Not a Bink file.. Skipping video
I've tried to look around after solutions but I can't find any. My OS is Windows 7 64-bit if that helps. (I suspect that steam didn't download a cutscene, but validating game files doesn't help)

Thanks ^^

I don't know if these solutions apply because this is only the steam version, I have never installed this with a dvd. I did try to cut and paste my binkw32.dll to "dark messiah might and magic singleplayer" from "bin" (steam wasn't running) and reboot, but it made no difference. All other cutscenes are fine, but the one at the skull of shadows makes the game crash.

edit

I just saw that steam recreated binkw32.dll in the bin folder, probably after I ran the game. Can this be related to the problem?

Hmmm... That would indicate to me that you also need to remove the [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve\Source\mm]
key.

Could you try again, but this time
  1. terminate the steam.exe process via Ctrl+Alt+Del TaskManager.
  2. Then move binkw32, and also remove the registry key.
  3. Then reboot the PC.


Would you be missing only one cutscene??? How do you know all others are fine? Have you played the complete game already?

I'll try again. And no I have not played the entire game, but I checked some other cutscenes and they played without a single problem.

Tried twice, steam wasn't running, moved binkw32.dll from bin, deleted the key and rebooted, didn't work :(

It seems binkw32.dll was recreated both times and placed in "bin".
