Common Questions

Q: I downloaded Bombtris Lite for Windows but it's not running, what do I do?

A: You may have missed installing OpenAL which Bombtris requires for sound.
To install it, re-open the archive or re-download Bombtris then run "OpenAL Installer.exe" from within it (all default settings should be fine).

If you've installed OpenAL and Bombtris does not run, then you may be missing the Visual C++ 2005 and/or 2008 redistributable files from Microsoft (which we don't package with Bombtris to save space, as many people have these).
To install them, please follow the installation instructions on Microsoft's download pages for the Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable and the Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable.

If Bombtris still doesn't run, please feel free to contact us and we'll try our best to get it running for you.
