View Full Version : Crashes every damn time

27th Nov 1999, 05:40 PM
Every time I try to run UT retail, I get this cute little error:
I can't get into any games, I have tried numerous reinstalls, and safe-mode does nothing useful. I played the demo for three weeks and this never happened. BTW, I'm running dual V2's on a P2-300 with a Diamond Viper 330 and 128 RAM.

I get the same problem! But I have had the benefit of creating more than just that error. /~unreal/ubb/html/smile.gif

I have had this problem and then other error messages after reinstalling. I have reloaded my system twice now, lol. I'll start taking screen shots like you did and post them here.

If anyone can help, it would be great and I would be very thankful!

Might I suggest that you send these error messages to UTbugs@epicgames.com This was actually a email site for demo bugs but maybe they will still get channeled to the right place.

I was able to stop the startup errors I was having by doing the following below.

1. placed the CD in and after autorun I selected uninstall
2. reboot after uninstall
3. manually remore the c:\UT (short sp) folder
4. rebooted
5. placed the UT CD back into the CDROM and installed, everything, even DX7 which I already had.

I did this 3 times (3 times!) before UT would stop giving me errors on startup.
I realize this doesn't make much sence. none the less this was the only thing that got me working. lol.

Hope this helps you out /~unreal/ubb/html/smile.gif, if not, best of luck fixing it. /~unreal/ubb/html/frown.gif

I noticed that there is a Direct 3d bug workaround to enable D3D support. I personally never enabled D3D after install and only tried 3dfx glide. Did any of you enable D3D and did you still have this problem? Im at work right now but im gonna try that workaround and enable D3D when I get home. Maybe it will work. Just a thought =)
