Buffer Overrun Detected Error on Opening Sin Episode 1 Emergence Pack

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I purchased Sin Episodes: Emergence Pack. It works fine when loading.

But when launching the Sin Episode 1, I experienced a buffer error. I am running Windows 7.

Does it work with Windows 7?

Are they compatible?

Please send advices.

Buffer Overrun Detected Error on Opening Sin Episode 1 Emergence Pack


SiN Episodes: Emergence system requirements:

  • Pentium 1.2GHz or faster processor

    • Windows 2000
    • Windows XP
  • 256 MB RAM or more recommended
  • DirectX 7-compatible video card or higher
  • DirectX 7 or higher
  • Internet connection
  • Mouse
  • Keyboard

This version of the game includes:

  1. SiN Episodes: Emergence
  2. SiN 1 Multiplayer
  3. SiN 1

If you will just see the information listed above, it is obvious that your operating system is 100% not compatible with this game. This game can only be run on Windows 2000 and Windows XP platforms.

If you are badly interested in playing this game, you might want to consider formatting your hard drive and installing either of the two versions of Windows listed above. Even if you try doing the compatibility wizard on your Windows, it will still do no good on the game.

It will just keep on crashing every time you open it.

Or you can install other games that are compatible with your Windows 7.
