DC crashing

Post by Mole204 » June 26th, 2018, 9:34 pm

Haven't you fixed this yet?

So my new copy of WL2dc is crashing on startup.
exe has stopped working.
It was a new steam dl, so it could be expected to have all it's patches.

Update your drivers, on the AMD
Error 173 – AMD Installer Cannot Continue Since AMD Graphics Hardware Was Not Found

Use the force
I tried adding -force-d3d9 to the icon command line in both the shortcut and the game exe.. Didn't work. I wonder if I'm doing it wrong somehow. I got by old wl2 to work.

Use Nvidia.
Downloaded yet another program that doesn't fix anything. This graphics driver could not find compatable graphics hardware.

Download Intel support
I installed Intel support 3.4. It crashed. Yes, it did. Cannot start service from a command line or debugger. And when I did get it work it told me "Sorry, no software updates are available." Must not be the answer.

I validated the steam files.

Of course, my -new- copy of WL worked, briefly. I did the character creation, but when I hit play, crash. Program crash, this time, not computer crash, so I guess that you've gotten a -few- things improved.

I'm not a Windows expert, as a Linux user, but anyway if you have problems installing every driver from Intel, NVidia and AMD it probably means something is weird/broken on your Windows install, more than in WL2DC... sorry I can't tell you more.

Er... if AMD and NVIDIA are both saying you don't have their hardware I assume you're running an integrated graphics controller? And it sounds like you're not running an Intel chip. You should probably figure out what, exactly, your computer has before randomly trying to install drivers. That's probably done more harm than anything else.

Also, WL2 requires a 64 bit OS. I believe the vanilla version would run on 32 bit. If you're running a 32 bit OS, that could be why the vanilla worked but the DC doesn't.

Intel Core. 2.93 ghz. 8gb ram. 64 bit os. Win7.
I know DC crashing doesn't make sense, if it did I could have fixed it myself- or, it would had never gone wrong in the first place. While I've managed to get it running, somehow, it'll likely crash again. Are there any stability patches you would recommend?

I've never run it without a dedicated graphics card, so I'm not sure what else would be needed to make things more stable outside of turning down graphics settings as far as possible.

That said, with all the other stuff crashing as well, there could certainly be something else wrong with the computer.

Of course I turned it down, and used the fast processing option in the menu.
I would come to the same conclusion that the computer's just odd, if it wasn't for the fact that it's at least the 3rd full computer replacement since I started playing Wl2, when it came out with the same problems. I don't know what's wrong, but it ain't me, man.
And it's continuing to crash... Enter the cat statue cave. Trying to load after total party kill by gillas. Just looking around Ranger center. etc Crashes everywhere. But it runs for a little while, too. 2 steps forward, 1 step back.

It's been crashing every step of the way. Walk through the desert. Walk through radio tower. Walk into Cat Statue cave. Frog cave. Walking past Solvig.
The backpack button in the world map. Rotating ranger icons beside continue and load.
Why did I ever put up with this game? How?
Not just crashing, it's gotten the greyed out continue and load, with the rotating ranger stars... I hope Steam hasn't saved over my pc files with the older files it would have access to. Has there been any new answers to this for DC or do I have to start putting together the same workaround account clusters I had to use for wl2?

I dunno at this point. Runs fine on my machine and my previous one. Tech support's not exactly my expertise.
