View Full Version : Game crashes when talking to executive officer

03-06-2011, 05:02 AM
At a certain point, the executive officer (pirate) want's you to talk with him. The dialogue has 2 options: What's on your mind? and Keep it for later.
When I choose the first one, I just get a CTD with the error: An error has occured in Silent Hunter 5. Is this a bug?

Is this a stock or modded game?
What are your system specs?
DVD or download?

More info is better when trying to figure out what is wrong.

Well, unfortunately, I can barely play the game on lowest settings. Or something is wrong, or it's just my hardware. I bought it in a computer store with CD.
Here are my specs:
3.5GHz cpu - 32bit Windows 7
HD 4350 1024mb memory
4Gb ram (2.3gb avaible)

1. Are you running Mods?

2. What version of the game are you running. The game version will be at the top right of of the screen that contains the continue campaign, load game, etc.

3. Does this problem happen with an earlier saved game?

No mods or tweaks.
version 1.2 (autopatched)
It always happens, no matter what savegame it is. In free patrol or even when I have a mission objective.

I am at a loss here. I have read about CTD's when interacting with crew after a Mod install. I have not read about it with stock game. (doesn't mean there are no threads about it though)

If you are experiencing very poor performance in game then it may well be your system is not up to the task.

Have you tried disabling all background programs before playing?

Short of that I am out of ideas. If anyone else it reading this thread please jump in and assist if you can.
