How To : BulletStorm Installation guide

I got Bulletstorm from a friend last night. This is the third time that I have received a version of Bulletstorm due to major installation issues in which I just deleted, out of sheer frustration, the other two versions off my computer. I was so excited to finally install a “working” version of the game that I made no plans at all last night except to play Bulletstorm.

I mounted the game and started the installation and yet the same error occurred just like it had on the other two versions. In case anybody does actually read this and is having the same errors I had I’m going to break it down into what I did. I’ve got the Skidrow cracked version and you need to have an offline windows live account in order to login to the game to be able to save. So I clicked on the Auto-Run and a window popped up asking you where to install the game. It didn’t matter where I chose to install it as soon as you clicked next it popped up with this damn error code “Installation Failure 0x0800b010a”.

So if that happens to you just exit the installer. On the Bulletstorm disc, instead of clicking on the Auto-Run there is an executable file called “Gamemsi.exe“.  Run that and that will install Bulletstorm completely bypassing the product key part.

FYI: That error code in the beginning (0x0800b010a) only happened on the XP side. On Windows 7 I got to install it from the Auto-Run using the serial key 1111-1111-1111-1111-1111. I suspect it’s something on the computer itself that prevents it from installing. I had no Anti-Virus when I installed this game and my firewall was turned off so it wasn’t that blocking it. I think it might be something else installed on my computer

Once it’s installed you copy the files from the Skidrow folder

Binarieswin32cudart32_30_9.dll

binarieswin32shippingPC-stormgame.exe

To the location where you guys have installed the game in Binarieswin32

You then have to delete these two files from the installation

 binarieswin32shippingPC-stormgame.exe.zdp

 Binarieswin32Zdpzdpconfig.xml

You can then update the game using the Title update from the folder. Just double click on the “setup.exe” and click next. Let it do its thing.

If you try to run the game and it pops up with a “skidrow.dll file is missing.” I suggest first trying to re-install the game. In the two instances that it happened to me on Windows 7 I had to manually find the file on the internet.

You can download the file here http://thepiratebay.sx/torrent/6197813/Bulletstorm.Proper-SKIDROW-CrackOnly.  Remember, you need a torrent client (e.g bittorrent, bitlord etc) to download torrents

Extract those files and copy it to the installation directory in Binarieswin32.

On XP all I did was reinstall the game and the title update and then the file was there for some reason. But that patch will work on Windows XP and Windows 7.

The game should run now and this is the part where you need your Windows Live Offline Account. If you don’t have Windows Live installed you can run the setup from the BulletStorm disc from the folder “Live”.

Only crap thing is, is that once installed you have to update Windows Live which isn’t to big (28mb I think) but for those of us who have no internet connection that kind of presents a problem. I would just connect my phone up and quickly update the thing and then create an offline profile from Windows Live itself.

Luckily I still have an old Windows Live account which thankfully works.

So once you get all that sorted out run the game, it will ask you to sign in, you do with your offline account and there you go, BulletStorm should work fine and you will be able to save your game.

If anybody has any problems please send me a message here and I would be more than happy to try and help.

If there was anything that I missed as well please leave a comment and let me know

Later

P.S Thanks to the Skidrow Team for all the patches you guys have done over the years. Kudos to 110% effort you guys always put in

  1. Howzit Ryan..

    I read your blog on how to get bulletstorm to work and it was really helpfull…
    The download link for the skidrow file worked a 100%

    Shot dude, much appreciated…

    • Yeah, i read this info as well and it helped me after hours of struggling with it..

      This was really a big help, thanks a million..

      Bye the way if you do read this please vote for your favourite upcoming movie title on the blog homepage, I did…

  2. I know this is super late being a year since you posted those instructions above, but I don’t know where else to go. I recently got the game Bulletstorm from a friend (the same skidrow version) and have followed your instructions perfectly till the part where the GFWL Live account is needed. The thing is I too don’t have an internet connection on my gaming PC and I also have an GFWL offline account from previous games like Batman, Gears of War etc. (not sure how i got it) but overtime i try to sign in to play the game with my account a message pops up saying its an offline account and I need to sign in. I can’t get past the game splash screen. The account has worked fine for other games but why isn’t this one working? How do i get around this?? Please if you can, Help! Send it to my email address…

      • Hi Neil,

        It’s actually funny that you mention the bullet storm guide because a few weeks ago i re-installed it just to make sure that I remember how to do it and yeah i got it working again. What i used for the Windows Live account was the offline profile that i created through Batman: Arkham Asylum and that seemed to work fine. Which cracked version of Batman are you using? When i get home tonight i will re-install Bullet-storm to check to see what i did.

  4. Hey Vitosal thanks a lot for your workaround! That seems to have done the trick! Genius is what it is. Now if you’ll excuse me I can finally start playing this profanity filled game! Thanks again.

  5. Hey I got the game installed it,it works, but need online account to play and save so I see you need to download bulletstorm title update,I did. Know you say delete does 2 files but I can’t find it any help???????I bought the game,so don’t have a cracked one

  6. Hey James,

    sorry for the late reply, being madness at work. To be honest with you I’m not to sure if the two files are included on an original copy, it might be because its not cracked. Check in these folders again, and make sure you can see all hidden files and folders. These files will only appear once you have installed the game. The only other thing i can think of right now is to uninstall it completley, then re-install it using the msi.exe file located on the disc instead of the autorun function.

  7. hi, this is even more late 😀
    i just downloaded Bulletstorm few days back. And i can get the game up & running just fine. The problem comes while registering for Windows Live ID.
    I have an ID & I login using it, but it asks for the game serial at a step in which the SKIDROW’s 11111-11111-11111-11111 is put in. This comes back as invalid obviously & I thus cannot get the game started.
    Any ideas?

    • EDIT: I made a local profile but the title screen wont update and thus it still asks me to make my local profile and online profile, hence still cant play :/

  8. what version of the game did you download? Skidrow or someone else?

    The profile that you created. Was that through Windows Live or was it the method as was described above using Batman Arkham Asylum?

    If you created it online through Windows Live just make sure that you created an offline account.

    Also, check to see if you can’t download the title update from the skidrow site and try and re-install it.

    • hey dude i need your help with bullet storm, i just installed it in my computer and when i get to sign in for windows live, it says my product key is invalid. how do i resolve this? how do i make an offline account for this to work?

      • forgot one more things. i got this from skidrow flt. please help i dont know what to do…

      • The only way that I could create an offline account then was using batman arkham asylum. However I think that’s changed now as games for windows. You could still try downloading batman arkham asylum and cresting the account that way. As for the key on the skidrow version I just used 1111 in all the blocks

  10. I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout
    on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did
    you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like
    this one today.

    • hey thanks man, i really appreciate that. I don’t always have a lot of time to maintain it with new articles and stuff. I’m so busy with work at the moment. Anyway thanks again, take it easy 🙂

  11. Hey are using WordPress for your blog platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own.
    Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • Hi there, I’m just using one of the free templates here that you can choose here at wordpress. You can create something unique if you know about HTML coding but unfortunately i don’t

  12. I tend not to drop many comments, however i did a few searching and wound up here How To :
    BulletStorm Installation guide | Gamers Therapy. And I actually
    do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind.
    Could it be simply me or does it appear like some of these responses look like they are
    left by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are posting
    at additional sites, I’d like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of all of all your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    • I honestly don’t think anyone is brain dead on here, Every comment that makes its way is greatly appreciated. You can check out Gamers Therapy on Facebook but it is essentially just a link back here. Gamers Therapy is on You tube which you can find a link for on the blog itself.

      If there is anymore requested please send me an email at gamerstherapy@gmail.com.

      Thanks again
