Crash Problem was created by genx78
I was wondering if anyone can help with this problem Iam having.

I havent played EoC for a while, but got the urge so I tried installing it and patched to 14.6. Problem is now whenever I start the game, it crashes back to desktop somewhere between 3 to 30 seconds after loading. I cant even get a instant action game started before it crashes. I tried uninstalling it and starting over, ran it without the patch, even deleted the plantes file which I understand gave some people problems. I have up to date drivers for my Radeon 9000 vid card and have tried to disable the sound. But none of that helps.

Any Ideas?

Umm, uh. Nothing?
Should I provide some more info? If so, what would be helpful?

Thanks.

It seems like a video driver issue. But sound is easier to start there.

How did you disable the sound?

When does it crash? During spaceflight only? During the start of game menu? When a ship jumps in through the gate?

EoC did run at one time? On this computer with this hardware? Are you running other games without any problems?

People often run earlier driver versions, if the current ones do not support an old game.

I diabled the sound in the flux file. No effect.

It will crash within 2-3 seconds after I start the game, then crash back to the desktop, if you try to start it again, it will last for approx 30 seconds, then crash back to the desktop, if you try it agian after that, 2-3 seonds, and so on, like it is in a loop.

No it did not run on this particular hardrive. No, none of my other games suffer from this problem. It may be a driver issue, and the looping nature of the time between crashes is, unexpexted.

Are there any known issues with Radeon 9000 vid cards?

can you post the last few lines of the Flux.log?

If it is a driver problem, I would hop over to the Atari North America forum and ask. There are several Radeon users over there who might be able to help. I have only used Nvidia (which has its own issues).

What about joysticks? Try starting your computer with no joystick plugged in. And select keyboard only. (I am not recommending that you play this way, but some input devices have caused crashes) One issue with star shatter was resolved by not using a logitek wireless keyboard. Something to consider.

I left out the last parts, it was about the mods, which I have removed before, but with no affect.

Also I do not use a joystick. But I have a Logitech wireless mouse, could that cause a similar problem.
Thanks.
