WW2 ETO Veltro2k models problems-help plz!

Recommended Posts

I'm flying the WW2 ETO mod without any problem,with all planes except Short Stirling,HP Halifax and Fiat G-55 (Wellington seems doesn't have problems) anytime i get one of the threes mentioned i get CTD at 100% or if they're showing game freezes.

As Kevin says game is 06 patched,with his terrain and nation formations inis,checked inside folders and set MinBase to MEDIUM but i really don't know what happens!

any help is welcome!

ok, when it crashes, is there an error message? You know, the little M$ popup box that says "click here to see what the error report contains"???

 

I know some problems on the EAW WW2 Euro is not enough Medium airbases (Runway 1, 5,6) But aren't there some Runway 4s? The Large airbase??

 

do they work OK or at all in the stock maps?? If so, then it's something releated to the terrain itself.

 

I had a problem with the G-55 on the North Afirca/Tunisia maps ... but can't remember what I did to fix it!! Check the tailwheel steering angle --this may not be related, but make sure it's at a negative number. Probably wouldn't cause a CTD, but it'll keep it from the 'bouncy jiggly dance of death'

 

I'll have to check mine and see if it happens to be me, too.

Ok, I tested the Halibag and Sterling. The Sterling started off the mission ok....took a frame rate hit because of SOMETHING, but the mission stated and I took off normally.

 

Went and tested the Halifax.....took a loong time to load; sat a 90% for a while (which is usually groundobjects loading, iirc) Mission started with the cockpit view ... then SLAM!!!! right to the desktop, no error messages no nothing! Really damn strange stuff!!

I looked at all the inis, and really don't see anything that jumps right out at me....and the Sterling started it's mission on a Medium runway (and rechecking the targets ini shows more than enough to work right, so I take back what i said above.)

 

Here's a mission I edited... you're flying a Mustang near a formation of 18 Hallifaxs. Now, since your flying the fighter, it should load. See if anything weird happens

 

copy/paste into a blank notepad sheet, and save as "Halifax Formation.msn"
