View Full Version : Specific condition leading to crash in FB 3.0 and PF 3.0, can anyone please confirm?

10-23-2004, 09:48 PM
I'm having crashes in the single mission>USN>Corsair F4U-1D (not with A)>Carrier Landing2 when using "open canopy".
The same will happen on coop multiplayer mission number 2 at least when choosing the first f4-1d on the aircraft selection list.
This problem doesn't seem to happen in the other f4u-1d single missions.

This only happens I set graphics detail to perfect and then enable rear view mirrors (both detail settings).
When the mission starts, if I press open canopy with rear mirrors on the game will soon crash and misplaced textures will appear everywhere.
If it doesn't immediatly crash, it will probably next time I try to open it (it seems it doesn't on close action), even in the case it doesn't the game will CTD when I end the mission or get stuck at the mission finish screen where if I press "done" the button will stuck when pressed and the game will crash.
I tried this in 2 computers, one with a ti4200, other with a 5900, same behaviour happens both with drivers 56.72 and 61.77's, these two computers have totaly different hardware, from cpu type to soundcard (and of course there are no overclocked components). Tried also alternative install methods as fb+aep>2.01>2.04>pf and fb+aep+pf to eliminate an instalation issue but problem remains.

Can any one check this in the same conditions please? TIA

ps: mods this is a repost from my original thread in the ORR, I guess here it will have more exposure.

how do u activate rear vew mirrors ?? please cheers

Bring up the controls menu and bind a key to toggle rear view mirrors in the list of commands (only aircraft equiped will display them). It cycles through 3 positions wich are Off, low detail, high detail, off ...
You might try first setting them on in Quick mission builder (chose a corsair, spitfire per example) and then test in the aforementioned missions.

If you are willing to, please post back results ITT: http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=63110913&m=2081055332&r=4941068332#4941068332

Thanks for the tip, but I tried also 56.72's (wich are the recommended ones for my cards) as I stated with same results. Tried 65+ too.

Do you have texture compression enabled?
If so, disable it.
Hope this helps-

No TC either, using defaults both on il2setup and nvidia control panel, but to tell you, tried also with s3tc and none using custom. Thanks anyway.

I don't have PF yet,but when you say PF 3.0,you mean the PF series starts with v.3.0?

Yup, as it's based on the il2 fb 3.0 engine.
