Post subject: XP Pro SP1 CTDs in quick mission when firing missiles or... Reply with quote
I am getting errors in my FA now that I have migarted to XP Pro...

I created the drive with NTFS and I followed the install procedure by Cent, however, when I fire any of the new missiles or if I even go to F6 view to look at my wingman I get instant CTD...

If this isnt solvable I will not be able to work on FAF at all...

Who has ideas to solve this?

Ok I think I isolated the problem (I hope!) ... I had sahep skin and object files in the FA folder for testing (easier then building a library) and it worked fine in win98 for testing, but I think it conflicts in XP Pro... I removed th efile and I didnt CTD throughout 3 quick missions, though I will have to do more experimentation tomorrow to be certain...

I am hopeful this is the problem, I could live with that, beasue the alternative is that it doesnt like the newer shapes with more radical changes and that could be a real big problem...

Again if anyone has further ideas, please dont hesitate to post them here...

CAG out...

I've had problems with FA and XP, primarily with some of the new aircraft shapes, weapons looked just awesome, but aircraft would mess up occasionally.

The aircraft that bugged out on me were the following
-AN-2
-Beagle (What ever model that was, I can't quite remember)

The F-16XL flies great, looks great, never had a problem with it.

Just for poops and giggles I'll try FA on WINE sometime, who knows? It might work.

Well, the AN-2 shape isnt complete yet, it was only a test shape, thus having problems with it is of no surprise...

But the errors I am experiencing are drastic CTDs immediately upon use of these new shapes that were in the folder outside of a library.... So far the game has stayed stable since I removed them, I will do more testing this afternoon...

Well I have gotten almost no help from anyone here...

With the exception of Rad, not one of you has offered any information at all...

Perhaps you have not really realized the implications yet...

If I cant get this solved, then All FAF Development will be coming to a swift end...

FAF Korea Winter only, no extra files...

And it is very strange indeed that it CTDs on the SA-4 site... I have never had any problems previously with that site...

I reset IE defaults and finally got "FA Futures korea 2003" (probly a left-over problem from getting the ticker working). But if it's not the file your having trouble with, I cant help you
