Carte Blanche

~>Carte Blanche now available online!

Three long years after its initial release, Carte Blanche is finally available online on this site (download section). We had to wait the expiration of our contract with GMX Media (and G2Games) which strangely coincided with the bankruptcy of both these companies (nothing to do with us!)

Carte Blanche is for the first time (legally) available in French, which is ironically the game’s first language. It is also its first release in Mandarin and Czech (if we are not mistaken: GMX didn’t have in its habits to inform us much, nor to pay as a matter of fact…)

Although the game has some shortcomings, we continue to think that it remains unique in its tone and style, that it contains excellent moments and many hilarious lines. At the actual price, we think adventure and humoristic game lovers should not deprive themselves of the experience.

~>Vista : the game won’t run

Make sure you have installed all the updates for Vista as well as the latest drivers for your video card.

~>Vista : I can’t save my games

The game needs to be executed as Administrator.

Carte Blanche is no threat for the system’s security. This comes from the fact that the games are saved in the installation directory and Vista requires administrator privileges to do that.

~>At some point, the screen turns black and the game crashes

This usually means that the MPEG-1 codec used by your computer is either corrupted or somewhat incompatible with Carte Blanche’s videos. To solve this, you can download and install the K-Lite codec collection from this link:

*Warning : if you already have a codec collection installed, you need to uninstall it prior to installing a new one to prevent possible conflicts.

~>Missing file d3dx9_30.dll

In reason of a minor misunderstanding, the DirectX installer was not packaged with the first release of the game. This is happily an easy problem to solve :
