CTD at beginning of mission- WOE vista 64 ultimate

Recommended Posts

Ok guys I am sorry to bother everyone with this . I decided to move my game over to my newer computer, read the knowlage base and followed all of the steps. The game loads and I can arm my aircraft

in the loadout screen but when I hit the Fly button to start the sim I get a CTD. This is killing me because my missions are maxing out my old computer and my new kick butt machine is not liking WOE at all :sorry:

my specs are:

Vista 64 bit ultimate -w/ latest dx9 /Asus striker extreme MB/ 4 gigs of corsair XMS2 ddr2-800/Asus 8800GTX/ 2 WD 500 gig Hard drives/ sound blaster Xfi.

 

Has anyone experienced this CTD on WOE at the start of a mission?

 

 

 

The flight engine ini information in my WOE install is the same data as is provided to cut and paste in the KB vistas page so I did not do that step.

Try forcing WoE to run in WindowsXP SP2 compatibility mode.

 

Thank you fubar512, i just gave that a try but no luck. but I have made a little progress, a few minutes ago I figgured out running the game as administrator allows the game to start but now the CTD comes at the end of the mission instead.

Turn off the shaders in the terrain and water lines in the terrain ini

I'm also having the same problem. I already changed the INI as per the Knowledge Base instructions.

Also running as Admin.

 

I noticed that running as Admin = CTD before mission start

Running normally = CTD at end of mission

INI changes don't seem to do any difference.

It works for me. Are you sure you changed the right ini?

 

Yup. My last culprit is DX9 which I have to update. I'm talking about WOI btw...

Is it safe to install dx9 in Vista?

I'm seeing conflicting accounts but I'm thinking it is safe because people have done so, and the MS site says the latest dx9 redist is compatible with Vista.

There was a servicepack update for vista, that totally buggered my gameplay...when I removed it all was a-okay

Ok nothing works for me. I think I'll put this game away and wait for the Vista versions.
