I just bought Jade Empire in the Steam holiday sale. At 640×480, no AA, no AF, and all details on low, I”m getting a constant 30 FPS, but it”s so jerky it looks more like 5 FPS and is completely. As with most BioWare games, both male and female player characters may pursue a romance in Jade Empire. Dawn Star is interested only in male players, but Silk Fox and Sky are willing to pursue romance with players of either sex. Pursuing a romance is completely optional and has no impact on.

Jade Empire Failed To Find Steam
04.06.09Posted in at 7:46 pm by jwNote: This probably works on Vista as well.Having purchased from for the cool price of, I was having all sorts of trouble trying to get it to run. Basically the configuration program would crash every time I attempted to run the application, and it refused to run the actual application without running the configuration program.Searching on the net proved pretty much worthless – turned out quite a few people were having the problem, but no one seemed to know any way to fix it. Other people were saying it ran fine if you just skipped the config program but the issue is you can’t skip the config program on the “first run”.
That was the trick – how to convince the game it was no longer the first run.First stop, good old post-moretem debugging with. Sadly, this told me that it was crashing trying to free a block of memory that had either not been allocated or had already been freed (the call stack was inside HeapFree, and through a few compatibility layers Win7 had tossed in for me). No help there, and telling it to ignore the exception didn’t make matters any better – even to get it through the “first run” stage.Next stop, (one of those evil apps that daft DRM companies like SecuRom decide shouldn’t be allowed because they may actually help you fix their games for them I guess?). The last file it tried to access before crashing was SystemInformation.xml in the game’s data directory. Turned out that file didn’t exist, and so was a big clue about what the game used to determine whether the config had run or not.Nothing to lose – create a blank file with Notepad and save it as SystemInformation.xml in C:Program Files (x86)steamsteamappscommonjade empiredata. Attempt to run the config program and it still crashes. Next, attempt to run the main game and it skips the config and actually starts and plays without issue (at least to character creation so far).Cool – not a waste of $15 after all!Edit: As pointed out in the comments, make sure you run Notepad as Administrator to create the file or it won’t do what you think.
Jade Empire Configuration Utility Crash
Now, I can play it again.Jim Said:October 29, 2009 atIn Windows 7, beta (build 7100), all I had to do was create the SystemInformation.xml file in the game’s data directory and the config utility ran just fine.Thanks for the help!.casey Said:October 30, 2009 atI hadn’t downloaded Jade Empire with Steam, but I still got the same problem: “Configuration Utility has stopped working”, and the game never ran. I ended up having to run the.exe directly, which worked but got annoying. Eventually I found this site, and saved the.xml file into C:Program FilesJade Empiredata. That’s all there is to it. Thanks so much for the help!.Said:October 30, 2009 atI’m running Windows 7 Ultimate X64.
Creating an empty file at the location that you’ve mentioned did the trick and the configuration utility ran just fine.One thing to keep in mind is that you need to run notepad.exe as administrator.
