Q: Installation Issues
A: Why won't the game install and play on Windows 95, Me or Windows NT?
Worms Forts has been developed specifically for Windows 98/2000/XP. It is not recommended to attempt an installation under Windows 95/Me/NT as they are not supported.
Whilst the game may work this is dependent on software and hardware requirements and cannot be fully guaranteed.
Is it possible to install and play on Windows XP 64-Bit Edition?
Q: Game Issues
A: Why do I get a 'Please insert the Worms Forts CD ROM' message when playing?
Please ensure that you have the disc correctly inserted and accessible within your system. If your system has more than one CD-ROM drive installed insert the disc in the other drive and re-run the game.
Alternatively it may be a possibility that there is a drive incompatibility with the SafeDisc copy protection utilised by Worms Forts. Please consult the section on SafeDisc compatibility for further advice if you feel that this may be the cause of your problem.
I am trying to play and I receive a 'VXD' error, why is this happening?
If launch problems occur with virtual drivers (VXD's) it may relate to the following.
- Your primary hard disk may be low on free space.
- If a device related error occurs you may require a specific driver update.
Is it possible to create and use my own individual worm skins/clothes?
It is not possible to do this within the game. A range of hats are selectable however.
Is it possible to create and use my own customised gravestones?
It is not possible to do this within the game. A range of gravestones are selectable however.
I want to enable blood effects, is this possible?
An option to enable blood effects is not available, nor are there any plans to implement such.
Is it possible to perform a replay of a shot within the game?
Worms Forts will automatically award a replay for shots that inflict a significant amount of damage. It is however not possible to manually perform this particular function.
I am having problems completing missions and challenges, any hints at all?
Hints, tips or game walkthrough guides are not within this FAQ as it primarily covers technical information. Please refer to the official Worms Forts website for play assistance.
I want to unlock more items, are there any cheats available for the game?
There are no cheats available for the game and all locked items must be earned through successful completion. Even if there were cheats we wouldn't really want to spoil the game, do you honestly think we'd tell you them?
When I play the game it will crash when FMV is played, how can I solve this?
If you have background programs running, there may be conflicts when an FMV sequence is played. It is recommended that you close all other PC programs prior to playing the game. It is also recommended to update your video card drivers and use only official video codec files within your system. If third party video codec packs are utilised you may experience problems with FMV playback.
Where is the bounce option for grenade type weapons?
A fixed level of bounce for these weapon types is incorporated into Worms Forts and adjustment of this particular effect is notpossible.
Why doesn't the landscape deform as in other versions of Worms?
This is restricted so that the landscape can be much larger than in Worms 3D. It is also prevented so that it remains possible to build forts on land within the game area. Fort buildings and wall structures are fully deformable however.
Why does the game fail to start when I access the game launcher?
In severely isolated cases this may be related to an incompatibility with the SafeDisc protection system that is incorporated within the game. Please note problems such as these are extremely rare, as this protection method is the one of the most compatible types available with majority of CD and DVD drives. If you feel that the problem may be related to a SafeDisc issue then please contact Macrovision directly via their website.
I have unlocked the American News Reader speech bank but why can't I select it?
After completing Mission 7 this speech bank is unlocked and listed within the Percentage Complete section. It is not currently possible to select this item from within the Team Setup screen and assign it to a team. This problem may be addressed in a future patch for PC.
Q: Graphics Issues
A: I am trying to play and the game returns straight back to the desktop, why?
Your video card possibly may not have enough memory. If you attempt to run the game with less than the minimum required amount of video memory (64Mb) you will experience problems. If this is not the case and your device has enough available video memory an update of your video card drivers may be required.
When I play the game it stutters and is running very slowly, why is this?
Firstly check that your video device is compatible and that your system meets the minimum requirements. The next step is to update your video drivers, lower the in game resolution and increase your screen refresh rate accordingly. Remember to check within your manufacturer documentation that your screen display is actually capable of displaying a higher refresh rate.
Q: Sound Issues
A: The sound seems distorted when playing, why is this happening?
You may have reverb set to ON within your sound card settings, this may cause problems.
Alternatively this could be related to poorly set bass and treble options.
If this fails to alleviate your problem or you do not have the options available then it might be sound driver related and an update may be required.
Q: Control Issues
A: I wish to change my keyboard and mouse configuration, how do I achieve this?
It is possible to customise keyboard and mouse configuration through the control options for a preferred layout. The default layout is optimised for easy access and has been established from continuous feedback given during development of the game.
There is an option to use a 16 button PC joypad, how may I achieve this?
The best method in order to utilise a 16 button PC joypad for the game is to purchase one of the many commercially available Sony PlayStation Dual Shock pad adapters for your computer.
Similar controllers are also available for purchase. This feature was included during development primarily for the testing of pad configurations for console versions of the game.
It has been retained as an option for gamers who prefer control method as an alternative to a mouse / keyboard setup.
Why can't I move around the landscape in FPS view?
It is not possible to move in FPS (first person) view as this mode is designed and primarily used for general spotting and targeting only.
Using my mouse feels unresponsive, what could be the cause of this?
Refer to your mouse profiling software as you may have to increase the movement sensitivity level setting as it may possibly be defaulted to a low value.
Q: Fortnet/Network Issues
A: I can't seem to play on the Internet through a firewall, what is the problem?
You will not be able to play via the Internet if you cannot open access through a firewall as they are designed to protect a system and will prevent game data transfer. Please contact your network administrator or ISP and refer to port information below.
I can see other games on the network but can't connect, what is wrong?
Differing Worms Forts versions aren't fully compatible; the server will identify other games that have the same version of the game as you. Games that are utilising a different version will be shown in a different colour. It is essential that all intended participants are using the most up to date version of the game to ensure a successful level of connectivity.
Why was I forced out of the game with a network error?
I've entered a game and there's no host, what happened?
Why do I keep being thrown out of the staging room to the network lobby?
