After updating to October 2008 patch, the game hangs and then crashes at 60% while loading an instant or single mission.
I did some experiment on converting the regular screenshot into 1970s and older photo style. I thought "Why not?" so here it is:
Parked A-4s - Rregular screenshot
Parked A-4s - 1970s style screenshot
Parked A-4s - Older style screenshot
Parked MiG-21s - Regular screenshot
Parked MiG-21s - 1970s style screenshot
Parked MiG-21s - Older style screenshot
Hello, good evening people.
I was back at playing the game after a while and it keeps crashing on me, especially during the campaign.
I'm not sure what causes it, but it happens always after i order my wingmen to attack something (my target or not), seemingly happening after they lock onto something.
I'm currently patching the game through all the official patches (Merged, June 2012 as of now - but going through July 2013 as i'm writing this)
I'll keep updating this topic as i go on, but if there is no way fixing it by patching, is there something i can do (compat mode, messing around with .cfg, whatever) to correct it?
After a crash, my Strike Fighters 2 Europe keys appear all set as unassigned.
There's no way i can set 'em.
Even if i bind them, they still be unassigned.
I EVEN TRIED REINSTALLING THE GAME, and they are STILL all unassigned...
I seriously have no idea of what to do, since this happened only in Europe and not in vanilla game or North Atlantic.
There's also another problem: keys look "bugged" in SF2 NA, since i binded all of them, but some still don't work.
As these won't be enough, they're bugged also because if i set a key for a specified control, and then i try to unassign it re-pressing the same key on another command, instead of unassigning the first command, it glitches and i can set two or more commands with the same key... this clearly bugged out
Could you please help and tell me what can i do to "unbug" all of this mess?
Thank you a lot guys, i appreciate your help so much
I got this problem:
I run SFP1 pretty well, without any sort of issue.
The only very tedious thing i have is that the most of the times a vocal call is given, my game freezes for like 1/2 seconds.
This may sound like not a big thing, but TRUST ME, since this pops up for 8 comms given out of 10, this problem turns the game into UNPLAYABLE.
And also (i got no idea why and what is the correlation with comms) almost every single time i shoot down a plane or i see an explosion in front of me, this issue happens.
I thought it was a setting problem, maybe a graphical one, or something related to my PC, i could never ever though it was an audio file problem...
I made many tests, but after several months of testing, removing all the audio calls files from the game files, i finally discovered what was the cause of those freezes: the audio communications.
Even if the game is perfectly playable as it is right now, without any radio chatter, it would be nicer if i could play it with audio comms again, instead of just ambience, plane and weapon sounds, i really loved HQ calls, wingmen comms and radio chatter.
I have no idea what could it be that "interfers" with the game and makes it freeze whenever a call is given, or even an explosion happens.
Only removing all audio comms from game files the problem solved.
Could you help me please? Any idea or suggestion would be great!
Thank you a lot guys!
