i had this problem before, it was something to do with my virtual memory but then i upgraded my GeForce 2 to a GeForce 4
ON YA DARTANGEN THE RUNT9 MUST BE SOMEWHAT ADDLED IN HIS POOR LITTLE HEAD, I WOULD NOT LIKE HIM TO SAY TO ME IN PERSON WHAT HE POSTED COS I WOULD JUST LAUGH AT HIM LIKE I AM NOW. I MERELY RELATED MY EXPERIENCE (SMALL AS IT MAY BE ) (LIKE RUNT9S BRAIN MAYBE)
i just downloaded a mod, and to get it running u have to move files to different folders. i did that and tried to start the game, but a serious error messege came up. it might have something to do with the mod having files named the same thing as other files, such as CommandSet, CommandButton, etc. its really pissing me off :mad:
Not sure if it'll help, but I've greatly reduced the number of times my computer will crash and give me the serious error message. I was able to manage this by trial and error troubleshooting.
I bought more memory, from 512 to 1024. New graphics card, from nVidia 5600 to ATI 9800 pro.
these didn't fix the errors at all, so I looked at my BIOS thouroughly and notices that my Athlon 2100+ was set to run at 1700mhz instead of the 1733. fixed that and I'm running a bit smoother now. Let me know if this helps anyone. Like I said, its not much but it may help
ya i just started gettin this error about an hour or so ago and it started directly after i installed the AirforceMod V1.2
I think I may have found my problem after all. My graphics card was overheating. This may not be the case for everyone else, but I opened up my case and placed a desk fan directly across from it. Planetside has played pretty close to perfect for a much longer time. The black crashes still occured, so I bought a slot fan and it fits nicely right above the graphics card heat sink. After this $10 mod and the fan still across from the open case I have yet to recieve a black crash. I will be adding a Tornado F5 fan on the case door and I've removed the unsused modem card to improve air flow.
Good Luck everyone else.
i had the airforce mod on and it worked 4 me... were u using any other mods at the same time dragsta?
no i dont think so but it dsont matter cuz i uninstalled and reinstalled
plus i dont know what a case is and im too young to buy anything myself plus its my moms comp and she has school and if i f her comp well i can say goodbye to adulthood lol
The problem isn't just hardware or software, it's a combination of the two. As we all know, the bigger the load you put on a computer, the hotter it gets. Your RAM gets hot like everything else and few computers have any form of cooling on their RAM so it can get really hot. The hotter it gets, the more likely it is to mix up data when it is called upon. This is a very common thing and all programs have ways of dealing with this. When CnC gets this bad data, instead of dealing with it, it freaks out and shuts down the program to prevent corupting the data on the hard drive. Opening your case will reduce the frequency of this happening, but a true fix won't happen untill they address the problem with another patch. I would also recomend spending $20 for some heat sinks for your RAM.
For anyone interested here are some of the things that fixed my serios error.
1. Before running the game Disable all services running when you push cntrl alt delete that have your name next to them except for the critical windows services.
2.Take off side of comp case and let run while playing to see if its a heat issue.
3. Disable L2 cache in bios
worked for me knock on wood.....
