Crashing after awhile?
« on: Jun 12, 2011; 08:43 PM »
I have the same problem on my laptop as I do with my main pc. I can install and play Hellgate Revival for awhile, but after I shut it down after the first few times playing it, I get crashes and the game can't start.

Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 on one, Home Premium 64 on the other. 4-6gbs of Ram (4 laptop, 6 gbs desktop) and they've both had the same problem. Reinstalling fixes the problem, but it creeps back eventually. Most recent one was this error message

Quote
 Problem Event Name:   APPCRASH
  Application Name:   hellgate_sp_dx9_x64.exe
  Application Version:   1.18074.70.4256
  Application Timestamp:   4804f713
  Fault Module Name:   USER32.dll
  Fault Module Version:   6.1.7601.17514

 
Followed by these, The instruction at XXXXXXXXXX referenced memory at XXXXX. The memory could not be written. where the XXXs tend to change. Pulling my hair out. Uninstalling the mod doesn't fix it, reinstalling Hellgate does though. Starts the cycle all over again if I reinstall Revival and play for awhile though.

I have no idea if this is anything to do with this, but regards the game crashing/not starting again after you close it... Check the task manager as hellgate.exe has an annoying habit of refusing to close fully and continues to run in memory somewhere. Maybe you are ending up with multiple copies of hellgate.exe trying to run at once.

If not, sorry not more help and hopefully someone else will have the right answer.
Nostalgia... Isn't what it used to be

Aye I checked that, and it's not it. I set up dual monitors and thew the task manager on the second one to be able to watch it. It looks like hellgate starts loading, then suddenly just stops, and eventually I'll get a notice off the crash. Other times it's within 3 seconds of the game launching. I'll see the templar, the crossed swords, the screen will flicker, and I'll have either the appcrash or other crash reason. Just reinstalled and was playing again for an hour no problem.
