Whenever i try to boot up the game it tells me this:
here to enlarge it for further details.

(EDIT)Something went wrong when i posted the link to Imgur,here it is.
So apparently my InstallBlast for docking station won't run because this file called "Bzip2" is having trouble reading something else in my docking station folder and its called "file_list_splash.txt.partial"

And i don't have a clue what that is,but if it has to do with me using this websitetoo download it or the fact i used the DS Offline Option thats given too you if you want to on the page if you want to play offline.Please get me help immediatly,i have only played this game twice. and its because i was trying to download something offline without thinking.The first time nothing happened but the second time (i did it because i was really curious to see what happened) the game was completely unplayable.

Mostly everyone has DS and i want it too,but i might just be the lone wolf who never gets to play DS until they're able to buy it.But even then im not so sure if i can even play it.So im begging you please help me solve this problem.

InstallBlast is an ancient updating system that is no longer used by Creature Labs/Gameware. It was included as the shortcut to play the game so that the company would try to update the game every time a person played. Because it's no longer used, it's causing problems.

It's easy to fix and you'll be able to play the game (using the offline feature as well).

To play DS, you need to right click the shortcut to DS on your desktop and choose "Properties" from the dropdown list.

Then something should pop up saying 'shortcut properties' at the top. Go to the tab labelled 'shortcut'.

In the text box which says 'target', there will be a long string of text, like a URL, which tells the shortcut where to point to. The end of the 'url' will be InstallBlast.exe, like in the picture on the Creatures Wiki article. This is the error. Delete just the last part and instead write 'engine.exe' (without quotes) instead of InstallBlast.exe, and click OK.

Changing the path from InstallBlast.exe to engine.exe should fix the problem.

Another problem i just ran into.It wants me to
"Change my settings to be High Color 16 bit"
Im guessing its just not at good settings and i will try and fix it myself.
But if i can't find it please just tell me anyways.
