MM8 Won't load

I have Banished on steam, I'm not sure which version if anyone can tell me where to look then I can provide that. Anywho, I downloaded and installed the mods as the directions states, however when I exit to let it reload my screen goes black for a long time, then I hear a little "ding" noise and finally I get the following message. "A fatal access violation has occurred in VideoDX9 and the game cannot continue." I have no other mods, I changed it from Direct X 11 to Direct X 9c, I've put it in window mode, I've done everything I can think of to get this mod running and it simply will not reload.  I'm really sad and frustrated because I want to play this and I can't understand why it won't work.

The Banished version is at the very bottom of the opening menu of the game.  It should be Banished 1.0.7 build 170910.

There's no simple answer.  Just to make sure:

  • You downloaded MM8 from this forum?
  • Extracted the 3 .pkm files from the .rar file and put those in your Banished > WinData folder? 
  • The following 4 files are also in there: data0.pkg, data1.pkg, patch0.pkg and patch1.pkg?
  • Then you loaded Banished, chose Mods and clicked on the 3 MegaMod files (MM1 should be on top, followed by 2, then 3), then exited Banished completely before starting a new game? (Make sure you do this every time you add or delete mods.)
  • You have no other mods activated?
  • Were you previously using CC 1.75? If you subscribed to it from Steam, did you unsubscribe and delete the .pkm from your WinData folder? (It is included in MM8.)

When you start Banished after this it will take a long time to load, giving you a black screen to look at. I find that DX11 loads faster; but others, like Vrayna, finds more crashes and sticks with DX9.  It could take as long as 15 minutes (maybe more) because it's a huge mod.

If it gave you an error message mentioning DX9 when you crashed, it's worth trying to go back to DX11. Press CTRL while starting Banished to bring up the options menu before the game itself and change it from there. It might help you get past that initial loading issue. I've had a few rare crashes mid-game with DX11, that's why I stick to the longer loading times of DX9 (as it loads slow but fine for me). Emphasis on rare. :)
