Ue

I had to wipe my hard drive recently. I needed to reinstall T2. When I installed from Tribes2_GSI.exe on [url]Http://www.rawr32.net[/url], it seemed to work fine. But when I try running Tribes 2, it seems to launch into full screen then UE's. No actual Tribes 2 window. Just that little UE Window. I tried running it in compatibility mode, "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)". That didn't work though. I also tried running it as an admin program too. :(

Info:
Unhandled exception: c0000005

If more info is needed, just ask me.

    that happened to my friend when the got windows vista. but then he put a CD in which he said had "something to do with the graphics", although he might have been wrong. As soon as he ran the CD tribes2 and alot of other games that didnt work previously worked.

    even if you didnt get a CD when you got your computer, mabey when you wiped the disk whatever was on your computer to make it work is not there.

    Strange, my computer didn't wipe fully. All custom stuff for Tribes 2 is still here. I'll try deleting Dynamix/ and reinstalling.

    Edit:
    Nope, even a fresh copy UE's. Even the dedicated launcher isn't working right. Infinite Spawn had 27 restarts in less than 2 minutes. :D

    I ran defence turret to see if I can run on that. But no luck. I ran it as administrator, and got this error. :D

    Could be. Windows Vista keeps bothering me about updates anyway. x_X

    That didn't work either.

    Tribes 2 crashes on startup, but the demo of the Torque Game Engine works fine. :(

    They're not the same.

    When you reinstalled, did you re-add your client side scripts? If so, remove them and then try to start the game.

    I know they're not the same. I'm just saying they're both Torque. The demo works fine. And yes, I did remove all addons. (I.E: FRESH Copy). If Tribes 2 died on me, I could try to make a "Tribes 2" client for the Torque Demo. I just need a server IP to see if I can even connect to a Tribes 2 server.

    Edit
    I really doubt that would work though. :D
    Even with the shapes, interiors, and textures in place, I don't think I can stay in a server too long.

    Make sure your graphics drivers are up to date from the nvidia website. The default Vista drivers will not run the game.

    I warned you not to replace those .dll's. =-P

    It's not the DLL's.

    I see. Wiping the hard drive wiped out NVidia's drivers. :D
  • ninNninN Mapper
    could the CD i mentioned fix that?
  • Phantom139Phantom139 PGD Founder
    ouch...
  • Dark Dragon DXDark Dragon DX The Programmer
    Thanks Krash, T2 now works. :D

    Edit:
    Well, sorta. Tribes 2 won't work in windowed mode. :mad:

    Help with fullscreen problem?
  • KrashKrash Neptune Sleeps
    Have you tried opening up prefs/clientPrefs.cs and setting:
    $pref::Video::fullScreen = "0";
    $pref::Video::resolution = "1152 864 32";

    You may need to disable visual themes on the executable and set it in compatibility mode if you haven't already. What exactly is the error you get?

    ...Nevermind, I had to uncheck "Run In 640X280". It just looks quite weird though.

    Edit:
    I toyed with settings < resolution for a bit, and I got it to be more "comfortable", but it still doesn't look right. :D

    Looks fine to me.

    I'm just used to it almost taking up the whole screen. Not stretching across the screen.

    Can't you set it to 800 x 600?

    It's already there. It's a box in the center of the screen.
  • EolkEolk Angry Old Man
    Can you go any lower?

    640X480 is full screen for me. :D

    Do you keep your Windows Resolution low?

    Actually, my windows resolution is 1024X768 pixels.

    Oh well. :D

    Deal with it, son. :p

    Meh, I'll get used to it. Eventually.
