Game crashes at start- crashes at or after it loads somethin

Post by forky »

Hello there peeps, i was just about to play a game with some people when we noticed that the whole thing went down crashing like a mix between chernobyl and titanic, for the program of course not my computer.

Anyway we tried to fix it the best we could with firewall exceptions and redownloading but it still seems to stop at one thing, which either is square textures or what comes after. The only wiff of what kind of problem this was was on an error page coming up and telling me that spring tried to load something strange or whatnot, i couldn't really get a look at it before it goes away.

So yeah, please answer to this post haste, because i don't want to leave those people hanging if there is no way fixing this.

Also here's my infolog for those interested/who need it to solve this.

Did you try more than one Game and/or Map? There's so many things that could go wrong Game and/or Map side it would help narrow down the culprit.

That said, gut is ATI driver issue.

Looks like an ATI reltaed graphics driver problem - try setting: shadows off, 3dtrees off, advunitshading off and advmapshading off

& then try again and hope that some combination of this helps... :)

Well the game continued without me, not that it's you guys fault i just didn't want to take up time with my fixing.

Anyway i'm really grateful for this and i'll reconsider both to try and fix this, if it's something else or it doesn't work i'll just be right back and complain about the thing that i don't understand.

Makes you feel old

Spring 94 crashes on my ATI too unless I have

Code: Select all

3DTrees = 0
AdvMapShading = 0
AdvUnitShading = 0
DynWater = 0
in my springsettings.cfg




If that is not enough for you, then have

Code: Select all

3DTrees=0
AdvMapShading=0
AdvUnitShading = 0
CompressTextures=1
DynWater = 0
LoadingMT=0
LuaShaders=0
MultiThreadCount=1
PathingThreadCount=1
ROAM=2
ReflectiveWater=0
SetCoreAffinity=1
SetCoreAffinitySim=1
SmoothLines=0
SmoothPoints=0
UseEFX=0
UsePBO=0
UseVBO=0
In your springsettings.cfg
