Can't start a game with 2.3 : game crashes
« on: July 23, 2010, 03:51:58 am »
Hi there, it's my first post on the forum, but I've been playing for a while, mostly on 2.2.1.

Now I got my 2.3 and I can't play it at all. The game lauches without any problem, but I just can't start a new game. As soon as I click on "start campaign" (form the single player campaign menu), "start game" (from the single player skirmish menu), any four tutorial and even the "credit" menu, the game freezes (I can't move my mouse anymore) while the music continues. Then the screen goes all black (music continues). Then only, the music crashes too and windows sends me the error message asking me if I want or not to send it to Microsoft. As soon as I clic on "send" or "don't send", the music restart playing again for a short while, until windows kills the process.

I downloaded the game via the link of this site wich leads to source forge.

I'm running on Windows XP SP3, AMD Athlon 64 3800+, 2.41GHz, 1,5GO RAM

My graphic card is a 256 MB ATI Radeon x1300 Pro, but I could fing much info about the driver, except that it is a software called CLI made by ATI.

Sorry, but I don't know wath architure actually is, so I don't know wich my system is using.

I attached my ufoconsol.log file

Thank you very much,
Doc

there's a series of threads concerning ATI graphcards, try looking into them.

Try disabling GLSL shaders. There are warnings about shaders in your log.

It worked! It wasn't so complicated, after all... Thank you very much.
