GR keeps locking up mid-mission (multiplayer or solo). Double checked driver updates on video card, and cannot figure out why. Even tried running Norton Ultilies, found a bunch of DCOM problems, which after reinstalling afterwards didnt help. I've done 3 complete fresh installs, updated patches 1.3 and 1.3, and it still crashes.

You don't need to d/l the patches,as your version is 1.4,and is fully patched out of the box.You have GR Gold,right?Look below,in other threads,and do a full uninstall like "snipe21" says,then install,without d/l any patches.see if it works then,if not write back and hang on,snipe or someone smarter than me will help you out.Hope this gets you going though.

Sorry about the confusion.

To Alidar1,

You only have GR V1.2 no expansion packs right?

If this is the case do below and get back to us but remember to turn off anti virus when you go and install patches. Install v1.3 patch and start the game and down the bottom right of the first splash screen is the version and it should read v1.3. Now install v1.4 and repeat above. Down load the patches from the link below.

Patch v1.3, v1.4 http://www.ghostrecon.com/patch.php?param=pcgr

Also make your desktop and game RES (16 bit) not (32 bit) like you have it. Also ensure that in the option/graphics tab that Z-Buffer is 16 bit.



GR Uninstall

First of go to your add/remove program and uninstall GR/UBI and then follow below and delete the GR/UBI folders

1-start/all programs/accessories/windows explorer/my computer/local disk(c)/program files/red storm entertainment

2-start/all programs/accessories/windows explorer/my computer/local disk(c)/program files/UBI.com

To start from scratch uninstall all of GR and UBI and at your own risk do this but first back it up.

(1) start/run and type this: regedit and press ok

Up the top click file/export and on the pop up window down the bottom where it says (save as type) click the drop down arrow and click on ALL FILES. Then select your location and save.

repeat step (1)

1- hkey_current_user/software look for any red storm entertainment folders and delete along with any UBI soft folders

now do this:

2- hkey_local_machine/software look for red storm entertainment folders and delete along with any UBI soft and UBI soft entertainment folders and delete

now do this:

3- hkey_LocalMachine/ software/ Microsoft/ windows/ current version/ uninstall directory there should be a folder here named "{D89EF3B3-6F17-4665-B7A9-A4235A6DC787}" with some Ghost Recon info in it so delete only the ghost recon related info.

Snipe21,
Thanks for trying to help me out. Here's what I did:

Changed desktop screenres to 16bit 800x600
In Add/Remove, GR Uninstall: done
In Add/Remove, UBI uninstall: done

did reboot, just to be safe

deleted Red Storm folder
deleted ubi.com folder
backed up registry
deleted software/red storm registry folder
deleted software/ubi registry folder
looked for local_machine/red storm, found none
looked for local_machine/ubi.com, found none
did full search for {D89EF3B3-6F17-4665-B7A9-A4235A6DC787} found nothing

Version on install: v1.0.0.2
Patch_3 installed
Patch_4 installed

did reboot, just to be safe.

Once started playing, changed Video Options to None/Low/16-bit (depending on option)
Got through first campagian mission OK, started #2, and full system lockup. After CRTL-ALT-DEL, system did automatic reboot.

To save post length, here's the links to fresh IKE and DxDiag

Personal Note: although I love this type of game, this is really starting to get to me! (*rueful grin*)

Snipe,
Almost forgot. Yes, this is GR with NO expansion packs.
