  1. Exact same here. Completely fresh machine, XP and fully clean download. (had to flatten machine due to virus) Not I get firewall msg then windows error, then back to desktop.
  2. The whole" You must complete basic training thing" ruined it for me. F-That crap. 20 minutes to go though that nonsense is a waste of time.
  3. Invalid file type on upload from PC or Invalid file when linking from a website. (lots of us getting this) Thanks, Inch
  4. Got this after running a bunch of spybot ans anti virus SW on the pc. I've re-installed the game twice, still no luck. Any ideas? PlayGate App: Application error The exception unknown software excption (0x000000d) occured in the application at locations 0x01019494. I'm stumped..
  5. Guys, For some reason the last week or so, toggling trough the "Y" key for HUD, I only get the lower section (health/chat/compass) or the top part (riders/gears - Net stuff). But I can't get upper and lower at same time.. It's very annoying not knowing what gear you're in or how many Paras are on your plane without haveing to constantly cycle through the "Y" key. Anyway to make both top and bottom HUD's come up at the same time again? Thanks, Inch
  6. Still no go... set custom to all and still cannot get chat up wit the rest. Damn this is frustrating...
  7. Thx, I just put in 93.71 and tuned it 9 ways to Sunday. No gain and possibly a big drop from the 84 sets. /wouldn't recommend them.
  8. Hiya guys, looks like I'm in this mess too. Went to my account, resubbed after 6 mos break. Can't log in. Can you check please. Thanks
  9. Getting this constantly on spawning in with hard ctd. Read thru ever post, cannot find reason or cure, however it seems like hundreds of other folks have reported it also, is there any way to fix this? The game is completely unplayable. File version: 1, 19, 7, 255 Program compile time: Sep 19 2005 09:23:44 Date and time: 10/23/2005 0:46:43 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Exception: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION Exception: continuable Exception address: 0x01df4977 Exception tried to: read at address 0x25a40000 Exception Registers: DS: 0x00000023, ES: 0x00000023, FS: 0x0000003b, GS: 0x00000000 EBP: 0x00000000, ESP: 0x0013f690, SS: 0x00000023, EIP: 0x01df4977 ESI: 0x25a3c018, EDI: 0x0022d6e0 EAX: 0x25a3fff8, EBX: 0x0013f770, ECX: 0x2230a9b0, EDX: 0x25a3ffd8 __________________
  10. Wow, what a great thread! Bump for Sticky!!
  11. Mike, what vid card you running?
  12. It will help on xp if you run the game in "NT Compatability mode" Here's how you do that. Click on my computer, when it opens select c: drive (or whatever drive you installed on, default is c:) The click into the Program files folder then the CRS folder. lastly, click into the battleground europe folder. In here you will see the files that make the game run. Find ww2.exe (in icon view it will only show ww2 and be listed as an application, you may not see the ".exe") Right click on this and click properties, then select the third tab at the top "Compatability". Click on the little box that says "run this program in compatability mode for.." and it will enable the selection box below it. Choose windows NT, then save. Repeat this process if you also placed a shortcut to launch the game on your desktop for the desktop icon.
  13. It will help tremendously. Hey, don't get discouraged. The latest patch threwe many of us off a bit, it's a dynamite sim, unlike any other MMORPG out there. Hang in there, it's worth the hassle. One last thing to try also, right click both the shortcut on your desktop and the ww2.exe executable in c:\crs\......\ww2.exe and set it wo windows NT compatability (2nd tab) This shoud also helpl
  14. Bottom line is you meet the minimum specs, just barely. If you get a video card it'd help a lot. Service pack 2 is available from microsoft, click through your auto - update menu items and it may help.
  15. In windows you have an application called dxdiag.exe, it is a system level diagnostic utility that can output all your system specs to a file, for us to see. so you run from your windows desktop Start-Run-cmd-dxdiag Start button, then click run, then in the box type cmd and hit enter. This will bring up a black dos window. At the prompt, type dxdiag and hit return. This will start the dxdiag application, on the main tab you will see "save to file" save it as something like "mydxdiag.txt". Then, open it up in notepad by going to start, accessories, and click notepad. Then File, open and select the file from where ever you saved it. This will bring up a text file with all your system specs. Paste it into a post here so we can see your system specs and figure out why you're hanging on load. It may take a few posts to paste it all in, just create a new post in your ongoing thread for each section. This is generally a needed step to look at any system/game related problem.
  16. Okay, couple of quick things.. First Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 1 (2600.xpsp2.050301-1526) You should update to win Service pack 2. Second Make sure in your ww2ol setting you have selected the video car and sound card by their names, not "default driver" Third Your video driver is 6.14., kinda old, they're up to 8.someting now, go to intel.com and dl the latest video driver for your system Lastly try lowing your resolution to 800x600x32 and also try to load game off-line and see if it loads. if it loads off-line but not on-line, it's a different solution path.

  17. Just copy paste each section in a new post (5-6 of them in this thread) it;s the normal way we do it, it's not flooding.
  18. Heh, In windows you have an application called dxdiag.exe, it is a system level diagnostic utility that can output all your system specs to a file, for us to see. so you run from your windows desktop Start-Run-cmd-dxdiag Start button, then click run, then in the box type cmd and hit enter.

  19. Did you use a driver cleaner? or just use windows to remove the driver or simply install over old one? Always... Always use a driver clean program. I like "Driver Cleaner Pro" (Free Download) Try this first
  20. Should be about 1-2 mins on a system that meets the specs. Can you post your dxdiag file for us to take a look at your config? Start-Run-cmd-dxdiag Then save to file and post the text here (or attach as a zip file)
  21. Can you post your dxdiag results and we'll take a look?
