Man, I hate those words. I got advice to update all my drivers not long ago, to fix random crashes in the Devastation Demo. I had, but someone said look for system driver updates. Motherboard and whatnot. Well, somehow, I was finally able to find updates, and install them. My in-game performance in other games, like JediKnight 2 and Return to Castle Wolfenstein has increased 3 fold. As long as I run in 16bit colors, I can turn everything else up to max. (My GeForce2 MX200 no likey 32bit colors) It's really quite amazing to me. However, it seems games on the Unreal Engine, like UT2003 and Devastation, really hate me now. If I launch them, on any setting I can get from the menus, I get about 3 to 8 seconds of playableness in UT2K3 and zero playable time in Dev. I then get a crash something like this:....
UT2003 Build UT2003_Build_[2003-02-13_18.53]
OS: Windows 98 4.10 (Build: 67766446) CPU: AuthenticAMD PentiumPro-class processor @ 1463 MHz with 447MB RAM Video: NVIDIA GeForce2 MX 100/200 (4345)
General protection fault!
History: FD3DRenderInterface::HandleCombinedMaterial <- FD3DRenderInterface::SetShaderMaterial <- FD3DRenderInterface::SetMaterial <- RenderStaticMesh <- FDynamicActor::Render <- RenderLevel <- FLevelSceneNode::Render <- FPlayerSceneNode::Render <- UGameEngine::Draw <- UWindowsViewport::Repaint <- UWindowsClient::Tick <- ClientTick <- UGameEngine::Tick <- UpdateWorld <- MainLoop
Sometimes the last bit it shorter, often the case in Dev. Anyway, something is all fragged up, and now I can't play two games that were quickly becoming my favorites. Can anyone help me out?
Things I have already tried:....
Reinstalling full game
Reinstalling/Updating Graphics and Sound Card Drivers
Running game on various levels of detail both graphics and sound.
None of this stuff seems to have helped. Anyone with any other ideas? The guys over at the Devastation website were "looking in to this," but when the full version of the game was released they screwed the demo users. I wasn't about to buy the full game if the demo didn't work though, just to gamble on the full game not working and them not being able to help me anyway.
I've attached my DirectX Diagnostic Info, incase that helps anyone help me. ANY help is much apreciated.
Well, I was able to find out how to switch to OpenGL rendering and that seems to have fixed the problem. If not that, then running it windowed did, but I doubt that. Anyway, if anyone else has had this problem, try those. Maybe it will work for you.:rock: :rock: :rock:
