hello all, i have searched high and low for a solution to this and have not had much success so far, firstly I HAVE AN ORIGINAL. ok i have had this game for ages and very recently it has started crashing when i use either the cd or mount an image of the cd using daemon tools, when i say crashing i do not just mean the game, my entire pc does a complete restart by itself, this is the only game that i have that does this.....this will usually happen within a timeframe of 1hr - 2hrs of being online playing the MP game. i have updated my gfx card so that it has the latest drivers (radeon 9200 tv out 128mb). i am running an amd athlon 2600xp, 1gb of ram, plenty of hdd space with winxp sp 1 obviously the pc rebooting on its own is unacceptable, so i tried the cd crack.....that was useless giving the cl_parsepacketentities : end of message, so removed that and returned the exe's from my backup folder, i have also tried uninstalling the game and reinstalling in a different directory ( was in c: reinstalled to L: ). if anyone has any idea how to fix this problem i am all ears. thanks Xsagaroth:confused:

Maybe if this has only recently started doing this crashing, and.or reboot, you could try the following.

Check your antiviral protection is as up to date as poss.--there have been a few recently which can cause this.

Do an uninstall, clean the registry with RegCleaner ( use Google to find it) and do a fresh re-install.

Try these for starters, Good Luck.

PS, I know you got the original disc (the pricve of which has been recently reduced (in UK at least). So why do you need to use a no CD crack?

well i thought that the problem may just be with my cd.....so thought i would try it with a no cd patch to sidestep this, in reference to the virus issue, r u talking about sasser (and variants) i dont think i am infected but will check for it just in case (i do have mcafee pro 7 installed which scans every day at 5pm) and pc is clean. it does seem to be a strange error though, i have been playing it for short periods of time using cd (max 45mins) as i have a large number of scsi's in an array and nothing annoys me more than pc rebooting itself

:-)

will check for sasser and let u know cheers

might be a driver issue. Did you change any drivers recently? I know when my video cards driver was changed, it crashed all my games. I also had to flash my bios and put in a mobo update. blue

try uninstalling and reinstalling with no mods... and if it works try it with the patch, then start adding mods.
