So just bought this game off Ebay from the UK.  I have Windows 7 64 bit and it all installed fine.  Even launched and i got to play for about 3 or 4 hours without issue.  I exited the game and then tried to come back to play only to find that I get the above error?  Uninstalled the game and then reloaded, again played for a few hours and then exited.  Again, tried to play later on and again got the same message. 

I don't know what is going on.  anyone able to help?  I've got .net framework 4 on the system, anything else I can try.  I'll really like the game, but don't want to have to uninstall and install every time I want to play.

Thanks

Have you tried running it as administrator? (right-click nexus.exe or nexus_dx9.exe, click "Run as administrator")

During installation a few registry keys are created by the setup and these might end up in a different location than where they are read from during a normal game start. This might be the issue here and if it'll start when being run as administrator, than we'll know.

You sir are a gentleman and a scholar - thank you very much, that worked a treat.  Is there away to bring those reg files back over or should I just do that each time.  THanks

Should be possible. Nexus' installation (which runs as administrator) probably created the registry keys at...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Mithis\Nexus - The Jupiter Incident

But the game running without administrator privileges looks for them here:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Mithis\Nexus - The Jupiter Incident

You can run "regedit" (hit Windows-key and [R], type "regedit"), navigate to the first path and create these same values at the second path, where they belong. Or, a faster way:

  • start up "regedit"
  • navigate to the first path above, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Mithis\Nexus - The Jupiter Incident
  • right-click the "Nexus - The Jupiter Incident" registry key and choose "Export"
  • save it somewhere as "nexus.reg" (or whatever)
  • open the file in a text editor and replace the path starting with "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE..." with the correct one (the second from above): HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Mithis\Nexus - The Jupiter Incident
  • save the changes and run the .reg file by double clicking

This should add an identical copy of the correct registry values into the correct location and the game should start up fine now without the need to run as administrator.

I know it's really inconvenient, but Vista and Windows 7 just handle registry access a bit different than previous Windows versions and Nexus was developed years before that. And with the developer shutdown there won't be any patch to ever fix that issue. :(

I used to have the same issue. (when titan explodes, game crash)
 Running as an adminstrator should fix this problem :-)
