Hey guys: Just dug this game out of storage; never played it on XP before. Im encountering the following message when I try to start a mission: Unhandled Exception! in Version 1.01 Build 534 SFC3.exe caused an EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION in module d3d8.dll at 001B:6DA4BA39 EAX=00000000 EBX=00000389 ECX=02FB0ECC EDX=0149BFC0 ESI=00000400 EDI=01498780 EBP=000003FA ESP=0012FBDC EIP=6DA4BA39 FLG=00210202 CS=001B DS=0023 SS=0023 ES=0023 FS=003B GS=0000 001B:6DA4BA39 (0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000) d3d8.dll Any ideas??? Ive got the patches and the DX9 fix. Thanks a lot! Aaron
Do not use the DX9 fix or, the nemesis mission with the patches, it will cause corruption. The patches include the fix and the nemesis mission.
Actually, when I first installed it, I had no patches or Dx fix and it still wouldn't load? So, I'm going to uninstall and reinstall. I do think the first time it did say something about building errors or something. Too bad. This is a really cool game. Aaron
Ok after uninstalling and deleting patches and fixes and the activision folder (grrr takes time, eh?) I downloaded and opened the main patch, I re-installed the game and this is the message I get after trying to load a mission: Unhandled Exception! in Version 1.00 Build 435 SFC3.exe caused an EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION in module d3d8.dll at 001B:6DA4BA33 EAX=00000000 EBX=0000033E ECX=04DB60E0 EDX=003CBFD0 ESI=00000400 EDI=003C8C40 EBP=000003FA ESP=0013FBD0 EIP=6DA4BA33 FLG=00210202 CS=001B DS=0023 SS=0023 ES=0023 FS=003B GS=0000 001B:6DA4BA33 (0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000) d3d8.dll Same thing.
