View Full Version : Another crash to desktop :(

10-09-2004, 01:40 PM

This is the first time in 1,5 years that a game crashes to desktop on my pc. I can play it but it randomly crashes to my desktop.
Sometimes after 1 hour, sometimes after 2 minutes.

I did a full install of the game.

Here are my specs
Intel p4 2.4 (sis 648 chipset)
1024 mb DDR ram (333 mhz)
Win XP pro
IDE 80GB hdd
Nvidia Geforce FX 5900 (MSI, 128 mb, 61.77 drivers)
Soundblaster audigy

No 3th party programs running in the background.

That's exactly what's happening on my machine too... (See my thread, "Game crashes to desktop")

On the off chance.. Are these crashes to desktop happening when it's AutoSaving?

Hmmm -- actually, I have no idea. That's a very good question. But if it is, it doesn't happen every time it autosaves. There are many times I'll save the game manually while it's running fine, and I'll notice that it had autosaved recently.

If it turns out that the problem does occur during autosave, is there something we can do about it?

Yes, I also believe it's happening when autosaving. I would have never thought of that problem.
Good thinking maztec http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now, is there anyway to disable autosaving?

Not a clue. There might be something in one of the config files for disabling it. Or it might at least point towards the problem so Ubi can patch it.

I don't know if this will help or not, but here's my experience. (I have pretty much a minimum requirement pc, 4+ years old.) I played all the way through with absolutely no problems at all. Playing again, I turned ON the extra graphics in the options. Now I ctdt every once in a while. All I do it turn those options off until I get past the "sticky" part. Maybe this will help somebody.
