  1. I just had a quick look on Dells site. The M1710 only has two config options 256 and 512 Doesn't look like shared memory at all. http://www.dell.com/us/en/dfh/notebooks/xpsnb_m1710/pd.aspx?refid=xpsnb_m1710&cs=22&s=dfh have you benchmarked your machine to see if you are getting comparable results to others on the net, there are some limited feature ones like Furture Mark. Something isn't right with your memory setup.....can you change this in the bios. What is your "Free" memory set to before loading ww2ol what is avail memory. Dell XPS M1710 Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2 (32 bit) Memory: 3326MB RAM Page File: 1226MB used, 5642MB available Display Memory: 1656 MB <------------------- Dedicated Memory: 248 MB Shared Memory: 1407 MB a) Your running 32bit OS so you should be ok , you have limit to 4GB IO addresses Normal Memory = 3326 + 248 dedicated is still well under the 32bit limit of 4GB address space. You will see a dramatic improvement if you change the "shared memory" down to 0 In my humble opinion and give that memory back to the game O.S In my guess. try it test it tweak it. * Try reduced textures if slow with 0 shared memory * Try turning page file off as well while testing if you are getting long "pauses" in game when approaching towns etc. * if you find the game crashes with 0 page file try the low game memory option. Also Double Check AUDIO is set to "HARDWARE", may be an obvious miss on a laptop. c) Do you know how much physically memory you purchased with the laptop? if its 4GB you may want to think about a 64bit operating system.
  2. * Anyone have two sound cards and confirmed this makes a differnece? * I can't select anything other than the primary windows device. * Win7 here set to primary device audio is a-ok. In ventrillo do you have options between "wave" and "Direct" like in Teamspeak? I had to set that on myn for teamspeak. What hardware do you run? is sound card dedicated or onboard? what is the make/model?
  3. Connecting to patch server...... Killed app and re-started a few times. hmmmm killed my antivirus and it worked after that. related unknown.. i use aavast.
  4. Good News: After setting the sound settings from software to hardware in the game options i'm much happier. Bad News: I have to set my headphones to the primary/default sound card in windows to hear anythings in game. Hi, Did a quick search and couldn't find a solution, I have Logitech G35 headset which I use for games and teamspeak. (its a USB connector) I usually just select the sound device in the properties and thats it works for most titles. When i select the sound source in 1.3.1 it doesn't seem to make a difference. I have checked the wwiiol.xml file is changing setting: Here set to Logitech Headset (USB) Back to Primary: Back to Logitech Headset (USB) Anyone know if there is something i'm doing wrong, or have a potential solution. At the moment i have to modify what my primary sound device is in windows before playing to get this headset to work in game. Cheers Rob/Twisty
  5. My issue is with the primary device not with getting directional sound working. Looks like the game is ignoring the settings file. Just confirmed this. Swapped it around so headset was primary in windows and set the game to use the desktop speakers. WWIIOL always uses primary device no matter what the settings file says. Posted this in bugs forum as i can't fix this: http://forums.battlegroundeurope.com/showthread.php?p=5097023#post5097023
  6. Hi, should this be in Live Game BUG reporting forum?
  7. Hi, Any help appreciated obviously would like to start with an educated direction than just start guessing where my errors are and hope someone here can help. Summary of Situation: - Recently have purchased a new machine before had not CTD issues. - updated all my drivers at the time (2 weeks ago). - Loaded Windows 7 64Bit. - Needs to set windows vista compatability on "Play Online" Shortcut. (or mouse doesn't move) - Note: running windows on a SSD and system is set to self manage page file (I assumed this means off) Have only tried basic troubleshooting. - Netcode new and Old. - SS2 on and off. - Teamspeak and TRackIR Running vs closed. - monitored memory usage and didn't see it - I have [not] tried to turn DEP off, not sure if this is required? Ancidotal: - Seem to get the CTD/error 'most' of the time when I'm on the ground. - Plane when on the deck waiting for others before taking off. - As infantry running around towns. - I Notice this *seems* again to occur when I'm using the keyboard (Bluetooth Logitech Mx5000 (updated firmware/drives) - Can happen anytime in missions. - Have noticed increase in frequency when trying to defend towns against enemy as inf. - Have noticed decrease in frequency when flying. My Issues: Let me know if there is something I can do to 'monitor' my memory to help find the location of the issue or to see what was runnign at the time/using the address space? I'm assuming this is what this error means? **DxDiag and Errors to Follow ***
  8. Try this thread: http://forums.wwiionline.com/showthread.php?t=289307 Good Luck.
  9. alcohol and Latency balances this out
  10. I played last night without crash (few CTHL's but that was network related). Used Netcode 2 which let me at least stay in game with bad network connectivity! Summary: So the only thing I have tried difference is removing the battleground europe folder from my documents (I renamed it) to start from scratch. Future: Will keep plodding away. Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this error to help those identify the issue? i.e how to translate the memory addressing, i'm assuming its relative so not usefull without context. siege22: Have you tried all the "basic" stuff, like SSE on and off, netcode, running as administrator etc? how long into the game untill it kicks you out? try renaming the battelground europe folder in my documents and testing (always rename it back if it doesn't fix it).
  11. I have been having a look at I have had some: Exception code: 0xc0000005 Exception: STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION Exception tried to: read at address 0x00000000 In the Past as well. Each of these is reported by windows with playgate.exe as its running in the 'compatability' enviroment. It actually dumps a file c:\users\username\appdata\temp\{guid}\appcompat.txt Which I will try to get my hands on when it next crashes. Give yout the link i events : 1133 : Source : Windows Error Reporting

Will load up all my extra's and give it a real test tonight.
  13. Thanks, I have scheduled a memory test for the next reboot. I will let you know my results. Right now I'm going to try ARMA II and GTA IV. Like I said its been a long time since a machine upgrade. I will come back with results.
  14. I'll run some more tests tonight if anyone can suggest anything?

  20. I Have have a Phillips PSC705 Sound Card, I was not having any problems with sound at all after a complete system rebuild, but the other night i was on an Airfield and was getting almost a static scrambled noise, it seemed to be related to the AA guns at the airfield. I'm currently looking for a solutoin, tried latest drivers, made sure all volume was not any higher than 75% including physical selectors. I'll keep searching.
