Hello all. I'm on day 5 of my saga trying to get the Game Gray matter to work on one of my available computers. Now I'm trying in VirtualBox running Windows XP home edition on my MacBook.
Everything goes fine with the installation, except when it asks to install DirectX, it fails to do so. Fine. I go into the disk, locate DXSETUP.exe, and receive this message:
"The procedure entry point DecodePointer could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll"
No problem. I know how to go online and update DirectX. I head over to the official site, go through the DirectX 9.0 update process. All goes smoothly! Hooray, re-start, try to open game:
"This application has failed to start because d3dx9_43.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
I've googled around, and every d3d(variant).dll problem just says to update directx, which I've already done. I've restarted the computer and reinstalled the game and directx several times to no avail. There are various directx related files on the Gray Matter disc, INCLUDING d3dx9_43.dll, but my computer knowledge doesn't stretch to what I should actually do with it to make the game work.
Please help, internet! You're my only hope!
