I have installed igo 8 and changed some things in the system file, but everytime when i start igo i get the message:

failed to open file:
ui_igo8\480_640\loading.bmp
exithing application

The phone i have is the HTC Touch Pro, the system file in igo 8 is:

[folders]
app="Opslagkaart/iGO8"

[device]
sdcard_dsk_num=7

The first thing iGO 8 does when you run it is show the loading screen. Is your "[folders] app=" line pointed to the right directory of where iGO is installed on your phone? Where is: Opslagkaart?

I have it installed on my SD card and my setting is:
[folders]
app="%SDCARD%/iGO8"

All I have in my sys.txt is [folders], [interface] and [timezone], running version 8.0.0.49545. Everything works great for me.

thanks for your request!

opslagkaart is the same as SDCARD, its a Dutch word.
So my folder must be:
[folders]
app="Opslagkaart/iGO8"

I changed de sys.txt file as you said but it doesn't work eighter.

So any other possibility's ?

Here is a working sys text for my touch diamond,
I think you need to use the 240x320 directory 640x480 is not supported.
Also the high res is for touch hd.
You can try this sys text but change the storage card as per your device sd card ( first line) and leave the rest as is.

add vga=1 to [interface]

or

open up yor data file and see if it has a folder with that resolution. If not, update your data file.

Oke, again thanks for your answers, but stil doesn't work!

I copied the sys.txt file from Londontownguy to my system file and it seems to work............... seems!

when i start the igo8.exe i got the startsceen, then the system go back to the igo8 directory and nothing, the system stand still.

When i start the .exe file again i got the message:

previous instance of iGO8 has not finished exiting yet.
please try again in a few seconds or soft-reset your device.

something in the sys.txt file is still wrong?

This is baffling maybe something is missing in your files, maybe try

app="%Opslagkaart%/iGO8" ie with the percentage marks as previous poster quoted

I was just reading through cause I'm hoping to give this app a try.
Not to nitpick if it's just a typo but I believe he recommended using:

app=%Opslagkaart%/IGO8

and NOT app=/%Opslagkaart%/IGO8

Single character can mess it up, you know.

app="%Opslagkaart%/iGO8" try also with the " " added, unless there is another difference with the raphael and diamond I thought it was only the sd card. It took me ages to get compile the right sys text I kept getting the same errors. My sys text works on latest 8.3 and also 8.0. Maybe there are some other files missing.

Wait
Wait wait !

In french, we have a sentence : "Ne pas mettre la charrue avant les boeufs"

Your error message only tell us that igo don't find a file.

First thing : how do you installed igo ?

I could see two things in your case :

- maybe there is another ini file in the main memory, program files folder, of your device and the one on storage card is not used
- maybe the link on the start menu that you use try to go to another folder than storagecard\igo8

Try to run igo directly from the folder on your storage card by launching the app from file explorer.

Kinds regards
