Hello Everyone,

I have finally figured out what is wrong with Marble Blast XP. The temporary key error is caused by a registry value that shouldn't be there. It also needs to have Microsoft Process Monitor open to run for whatever reason.

Either way, once I figured that out, I modified the game to use the mouse and keyboard and not require a NetJet. I also fixed the console and editor.

Temporary Key Fix
Install procmon(Process Monitor) from microsoft:
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb896645.aspx
 
Whenever you run the game make sure procmon is running or the game might give the error and you will need to delete the registry keys again.
 
If it ever gives problems you have to delete the following registry keys:
 
 
HKCU\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\LICENSES\{0273343E3A93332DB}
 
AND
 
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Licenses\{0273343E3A93332DB}

I hope you enjoy!

EDIT: Feel free to add this to the download section of the site. Also I wasn't sure where to post this so I put it in mods since I did infact modify it to run without a NetJet etc.

EDIT2: To Enable FreeLook just open the console with '~' and type in:
$pref::Input::AlwaysFreeLook=1;

EDIT3: I was able to test the game on Windows XP 32 Bit, Windows 7 32 Bit, and Windows 8.1 32 Bit today. It appears that on 32 Bit operating systems, the game runs flawlessly and will never ever give the temporary key error.

Pretty late replay but managed to test this and it works great, remapping keys has to be done through text editor but except that everything works. Great find Mathew. Could this copy be used somewhere is unknown. Currently I havent found anything major that could be used or anything that would make this engine different from MBG one. It seems like it's 100% same game with few changed textures, cut/simplified levels and odd camera movement. Also fully functional checkpoints seem to be presisten.
Edit: that's a new one, found folder under marble/client/VMPlayer it included readme file. Tons of new options added for sound aperently. pastebin.com/pjvjTCmW GameShell.dll can be find in main directory so i assume it's associated with that.

Some guy that does DTS shapes and levels.

AWESOME time HINT : When making PQ level place your custom interiors and textures in platinum/data/interiors_pq/custom
makes life easier for you and everyone else :)

I haven't found many problems with Windows 10 x64.A few things are a bit off when using a high resolution. This however does not make the game unplayable by any means. Also is the mouse supposed to turn the camera? Anywhere I've looked, it says the MBXP camera does not work with the mouse.

Know this is rather old, but the mouse does work for me. I managed to rebind the keys, but now the mouse has a low sensitivity, which is rather unfortunate. But the mouse should work under normal circumstances as far as I know.

It's actually pretty cool to see that you extracted files from a NetJet game and made it optimized for people who don't have a NetJet. PlatinumQuest definitely needs another set of marbles and music from XP, and that's why I made a custom pack for the exclusive marbles and music from the game.
