KawooshKick problem
« on: January 22, 2019, 08:05 PM »
So I installed this on other laptop same as on other computers, but i'm getting the following error:

"Failed to load WormKit module wkKawooshKick.dll: Error 0x0000007E"

What have I done wrong? I just put the file into Worms Armageddon folder as you do wormkit modules, it's 3.7.2.1 version in WA 3.7.2.1 so it should be fine right?

You probably don't have madCHook.dll which the module depends on. It is included in the WormNAT2 archive if you want to get it.

Dec 30 2013 23:59:49 <StepS> you need it to be actually bigger
Dec 31 2013 00:00:13 <StepS> it actually is very small on my 15-inch full HD screen
Dec 31 2013 00:00:25 <StepS> while running at 640x480 or stretched mode makes it fuzzy
Dec 31 2013 00:00:44 <StepS> this problem has been around since the Worms Armageddon's release and no one has even tried to beat it

Thanks, that works :)

Howcome it doesn't come with the download for KawooshKick? Do you have access to add it there or is there a reason I missed not to have them together?

Historically, most modules required it, and it was distributed alongside WormKit.exe. Now that WormKit.exe is no longer in use, and various modules (such as D3D9Wnd, SuperFrontend and others I've made) no longer use madCHook, this can be a common occurrence when you install a module that depends on it.

In the past, many modules that I hosted included madCHook. Unfortunately, because it is apparently popular with malware writers, various antiviruses threat it as malware, including server-side ones hosting the files. I had to remove all traces of madCHook several years ago.
