View Full Version : Game crash

In dark forces 2 when I complete level 18 and press enter to go to the next the game crashes every time and i get a send error message to microsoft. Has anyone else experienced this? If so what can be done to prevent this from happening?

what OS are you using, whats your computer hardware?

I am running xp pro with 3 G of ram. 3ghz amd processor, and an outdated video card card with 64mb ram. The game had worked flawlessly up to the point where i finish level 18and the stars are awarded and when enter is pressed to go to level 19 that's when the game quits working.

are you running it in compatibility mode for win95 or win98? Also, are you using the -windowgui switch in your shortcut?

the fact that you're getting to level 19 before the crash makes me think it's unlikely to be an issue with your computer. it sounds like the crash is happening when the cutscene is trying to load, this could be caused by a faulty disc or installation (i can't remember if JK puts the cutscenes on the computer or loads them off the disc)

check the disc to see if there are any scratches.
try running scandisk and defrag; it's impossible the file it's looking for is in a bad cluster.

if all else fails, then try reinstalling the game (remember to back up your saved game first)

I actually started a new game and worked my way back to this point and the game worked just fine. There must be something wrong with the saved game info on the other game i was playing. Thanks for all the help and suggestions.
