Freezes at startup game
« on: June 27, 2010, 09:45:13 am »
Upon launching the game appears as a process of loading and so hangs.
K10/2Gb/GF7900GS/Win_xpSP3/r30500-30700.

I have a similar problem.

The game process appears in the process list but no I/O bytes reading/writing change, the memory use stays constant and only the CPU load is changing. On click I get the "not responding" message.

Intel Core2Duo 2GHz/2GB/ATI MOBILITY FireGL V5200/WinXP-Pro SP3/2.3 release

With five times once in Safe Mode could turn, but then hung on the intro.

Replacing the old video driver (197.45) did not help.

If it hangs while loading the battlescape this workaround could help:

Same here, couldnt start game, it actually shows loading bar, then stops with two green bars in middle of screen. Startup music plays. But I wont get past of green bar screen -- I want to know, could I run UFO or my video is too oldie:P

I used stable UFOAI 2.3 (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ufoai/files/UFO_AI%202.x/2.3/ufoai-2.3-win32.exe/download)

WinXP SP3
Dell Latitude C400 (PIII 866 MHz, 768 Mb RAM, integrated Intel 80830M 64 Mb video, Intel 830M chipset)

Log shows that I have 0 Mb video memory, I wonder could I run UFO at all.

I post log and screenshot too :P

EDIT: It's not actually freeze, the green bars are the first things that game shows -- music and sound volume bars. And language selection.
But the green bars are all that game shows, all else is black...cursor is invisible too...

EDIT 2: Seems that my problem lies in UFO:AI v2.3, because 2.2 works in first attempt!

Edit 3: What is needed to turn off, to use same graphic settings like in 2.2 ? Then I can try turn settings on, one by one....or just safe mode turns all graphic features off?

Edit 4: Its my last post in this topic: UFOAI 2.3-dev-25862 works, so i can play it with my 82830 intel integrated graphic laptop :D

I'm having the same exact problem with the above post by ojaperv, all the symptoms are the same. The only difference is I have a faster running hp. I'll just add that I've tried to run the game in safe mode with the same results. Can anyone give us some support?
