I have WinXP Pro SP2 (I can give you a specific build if you like), most people have this, if the issue is here, then I may as well snap the game disk because no-one can play the game....Ruling this out....
I have a AMD 64 3500+, on a Asus A8N-SLI-Deluxe Mobo, Latest BIOS updated only a month ago
I have a ASUS 6600GT PCIe 128MB, Updated on the 11th March 2005
1x200GB WD Sata 8mb Cahce HDD
1xSeagate 80GB HDD
2x 512 Corsair top of the like RAM
IT has to be the GFX, because whenever I alt tab or whenever I quit my comp restarts, why or how could it be anything else?
I am not the only person having these problems....
Try this dude. I had the same problem with America's Army (also Unreal engine) with a AMD 64 3400...
right click on "my computer"
go to "properties"
click on the "advanced" tab
under the title "start and recovery" click on "settings"
under "system start up" click "edit"
a notepad with text should appear
it should say something like this:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1) \WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /noexecute=OptIn
Change the "/noexecute=Optin" switch to "/execute=Optin"
Just delete "No" then save as...and over write the file. Turn off your computer and reboot. Try to run the game...if it doesnt fix it...go back and add the "no".
Warning: If your not careful this could completely Hose your windows install...leaving you no option other than to format and reinstall the OS. I am not responsible for you hosing your system.
Hi Burke1stSgt. Your fix worked for me so many thanks . Anyone else with crash to desktop problems on exiting the game should try this (as long as you know what you're doing). By the way, console port or not IMHO - this is a great game!
