Dead Pixels II

So the games crashed or you are having problems, and you came here for help.

Well hopefully this page will get the game working for you.

Common fixes for errors.

Integrity check.

If you bought the game on Steam, No matter what your problem is, it’s work doing a steam integrity check to make sure the game has been downloaded correctly.

Re-installing required frameworks.

Try downloading and reinstalling required frameworks:

.NET 4.0 Framework:

Specific Error Messages.

Error CS0016: Could not write to output file c: \ Users \ Username \ AppData \ Local \ Temp \ XXXX.dll: Access is denied.”

This is caused by your user account not having access to write to the temp folder in AppData.

You can either change the permissions of the user account, or run the game as an administrator.  (Some users have said they only needed to run it as an administrator once, but I cant confirm this)

Index was outside the bounds of the array

You probably have an HP webcam.  If you unplug it the game should work.
Could not load file or assembly ’0 bytes loaded from System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089′ or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect program.
This error is caused by your computer getting different versions of .net mixed up.
The only way I’ve found to fix it is to download and run this tool to remove all versions of .net

Then download and install this to put a fresh version of .net 4.5:

Error loading “Effects\\eyes”
This error is caused by XNA 4.0 getting mixed up with an older version of XNA.
Uninstall all older versions of XNA the download and install XNA 4.0

The game has stopped responding. (Korean,Japanese and Asian users)

If this happens when playing the Last Stand mode or when trying to view the scoreboard, this is a known error with no current fix.

This resource could not be created.

Basically this error is to do with sound.

If you have not already tried the stuff in the common fixes section of that page please try it first.

You should also try upgrading your soundcards drivers.

From what I’ve read this error can be caused by anything from an odd setting selected in your soundcards settings to speakers not being connected properly. The only advice I can offer is to experiment with settings.

One fix I’ve heard is “The problem was that the system’s default audio device was set to some speakers that weren’t plugged in. The fix was changing the default to another device associated with my sound card. You can do this by right clicking the volume icon on the taskbar > Playback Devices, and right clicking something like “Digital Audio Interface” to set as the default instead of “Speakers”.”

If nothing you try gets it to work. You can disable all sound by pressing F10 while the launcher is open.

Getting in touch.
