Post [C2 KB] Creatures 2 produces a pixel format error
Creatures 2 produces a pixel format error
Issue: The installation process completes OK, but upon running the game, a message appears which informs you that graphics need to be converted. After clicking OK, the graphics start to convert but the conversion process seems to lock up or produce an error when it reaches a certain file.
Analysis: Because there are two different formats for video cars, 555 and 556 cards, a graphics conversion routine has been developed which converts all graphics in the game to the correct format for the video card which is present.
Resolution: Some of the files in the game are very large, like the background file and it may take a long time to convert. Try leaving the conversion process for at least an hour to see if this helps.

Check that you have enough disk space, the conversion process makes a temporary file which could be causing some problems with your hard drive capacity.

If you have un-installed the game, there may be some image files left on the hard drive, as unlikely as this is, delete the whole Creatures 2 Directory once the Uninstall has completed. You should then try to re-install and the process should complete without any further issues.

I don't think death is scary if anything it's an adventure. I often wonder what it would be like... Will God let me have one small request when I die?... or am I just stuck with what I get when I go? - Me in a moment of well...being me.
