[game doesnt run well with any of the patches]

Recommended Posts

I got the game about a month ago and have had nothing but trouble with it,I'v loaded the game almost 5 or 7 times and I'v been playing pc games since 1989.I played most of the ghost recon games(ghost recon,desert siege,island thunder) and still have the cd,s. I have an 80 gig hard drive and had to buy another 80 hard drive because my other one was full,with a lot of games .I have IL2 complete which is 8 gig in size.

But to get to my problems:

1 Every time I load one of the patches the game will not start again(1.06,1.10,1.16,1.20) I never even tryed 1.21 .The game loads the small green icon ,runs black for about 35 second then stops and I get the message to send to Microsoft err. And other times it just go's to desk top. I though it was my driver (9.31 Gforce)but changed down to 84.12.The game seem to run a little better.

2 With one of the patches load the game ran very slow ,the stutter was about 3 to 6 seconds and if you hold the W for walk ,when you let go of the key he would keep walking for a lot of steps and if you moved the mouse, the gun would not follow it ,which makes the game very hard to play

3 And some times when using the map ,the icon on the map would shot across the map if you move the mouse just a little bit, so you cannot use the map to play the game.

Well thats most of the problems there are more but not worth going into .I'v tryed most of the things that I can do to make the game run ,but the only thing I found, was the it only runs best right out of the box,with no updates.

Still a good game and will keep at till I can complete it,but I wish UBISOFT would try and do a better job on their games next time(same with IL2)

best to everyone

check your background services(what programs are running)in the background. also make sure you have the "newest" drivers installed.

perhaps your hardware doesn't meet the requirements to play...just guessing. :blink:

Sure sounds like that Papa6... Most if not all that can run it with the patches, seems to run well... Fact is, it started to run well for me with the 1.21 patch... I was able to increase the video.... Something to do with the netcode....

Look in you event veiwer and tell use what you see-that is unless you have XP Home, you will not have one, but if ya got XP Pro go to control panel-admin tools and you will see it-look for red icons and post em.

ok for the good stuff

Your keystrokes are being buffered until the cpu can get to them-that is why is is not working-the CPU is spiked and has no cycles. Get a registry cleaner off the internet, Go to Tucows, but if anyone here has a favorite chime in. After you get that accomplished.

Read the last two or three post of this below.

http://www.ghostrecon.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=37973

I suggest the windows defender fix first since it will add a very usefull tool to your control panel that will help you make sense of what is using up all of you system.

That is a start.

Clean you registry

unload you adware and get defender.

Use the tool in control panel to get an inventory of what is running and along with those loo entries comeone back and send me a personal and I will try to help.

Thank you everyone for your reply.

my computor =

windows XP 5.1

cpu 2.60 ghz

ram 1536 mb

direct X 9.0c

gforce 6600 128mb

driver 84.12

sound SB live 5.12

So you can see Zulater and Rocky that I have upgraded my system a little since 1989,I just wanted to let you know that I have been playing games for a while( I,m 70 years young)

Went to control panel admin tool NOX, but could not see any red icons?

And as far as drivers go ,I started with 91.33 then went down to 84.12,trying to find one that would run this game.I found that it ran OK in 84.12 ,no perfect,but good enough to play it

As I said I tryed most of the patches but none worked I didn,t try 1. 21 because it said it was for mp,I only play off line. And I tryed most of the patches more then once.So Rocky wants me to try patch 1.21,to see if it will work you know what I have to do for that, make a copy of my game rename it then if it does not work reinstall the game again,and past my copy over the installation and hope for the best.

And as I said before I found that the game runs best right out of the box 1.02,it still has a stutter in it ,but I can live with it.

I do have register clean on my machine which I run every now and then.

One thing I have foud is that UBISOFT games are coming with more problems then there are worth ,like IL2.I figure that us pc game players are a dieing breed ,that console are going to take over from us.In fact I am thinking of getting a Xbox or smething like it because all the new games come out on that first.I,ve even found out that stores like EB will not take some pc games back for a refund or exchange.I have 2 large box,s full of pc games that no one will take back.

So on that happy note I will again thank you all for getting back to me.I spent yesterday reading the comments on this form and found that other people are having the same problems as I am.

1 Every time I load one of the patches the game will not start again(1.06,1.10,1.16,1.20) I never even tryed 1.21 .The game loads the small green icon ,runs black for about 35 second then stops and I get the message to send to Microsoft err.

same thing here.

PC spec:

-iP4HT 3GHz

-1gig DDR

-CD version (4discs)

-ATi Radeon X850XT PE

-HD 250GB, defragmented, scandisked, etc.

on version 1.02 (out of the box) runs well. on crack version, also runs well.

but after i patched to 1.10

(crashlog):

===========================================

Crash in application version: grpcrc1.10

data\lib\managers\savemanager.dsf(-1): cant find member: get in type <void>

SCRIPT STACK

data\lib\setups\setup.dsf(0)

data\lib\setups\setup.dsf(0)

data\levels\mission04\mission04.dsf(0)

===========================================

but the game still load. (title screen, menu:video options, sound, etc., new campaign, the game loading for like 50sec, and then error box pop up (see crash log).

on patch 1.16, the CD drive starts reading the disc (disc 1 of the original GRAW copy), but nothing happen for about... ever. i hit the ctrl+alt+del btns, and on the "processes" still say GRAW is active but not using any CPU resource (0). and i cannot end the process (any how).

the map editor also not work on 1.16

on 1.2 and 1.21 behave same like 1.16

i read the forum that someone have the same problem and got it fixed by uninstalling Kasper-something and windows update (KB917-something)... i don't have any of those installed. so i cannot uninstall.

someone please help.

i wanna play multiplayer.

thanks!

Hi bellerophon:

Yes it get's flustration when the game does not run right , but as you can see the only way I could correct mine was by getting a larger vido card and now I have patch 1.20 in the game and it runs great, I didn,t use 1.21 because it seems to be for online play and I don,t play online.

I don,t know if this will help your problem ,but just to let you know you are no alone with this type of a problem,it.s a great game so hope you can get it to run right .

bob224 :thumbsup:
