Crash, crash and uh.. oh yea.. crash.

Recommended Posts

Lol, well, everyone who reads forums can guess how I'm suddenly fixing this...

 

Ok, well, Thyralax already gave me 2 links to driver updates which were in this:

 

Ati latest catalyst http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/wind...ofessional/Home

 

probably want to use the full suite for that one

 

secondary download

from the saphire companty but this suite is a little older so might not work as well...but worth a try if the first one doesnt.

 

http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/d...295&pid=111

 

If all this fails id recomend, when he gets tot he sign in screen, hit options and turn all graphics options off (enable poor man, make sure reflections,shadows etc are off) then if EL loads. slowly turn the options back on one by one, and dont forget the ATI mouse bug if having troubles clicking on things smile.gif

 

 

I tried the first one, it completely weirdo's out with an error that didn't even make sense and closed the install. :D

I tried the second, which installed just fine (the 9.4, first one under windows).

Initially, I tried it with my old install + the 1.8 update and I got as far as logging in with a black screen and ghost characters again.

 

I then made a clean install with a fresh load of files and everything.

Tried it with the fresh drivers and err... well, the old install worked better, because it crashed.

 

Difference (I think) between my old install and the new install, is that my old install is somewhere bugged in the first place. I made a mess somewhere when there was a camera update and things. And I was stuck on the old system rather then the new one, I didn't mind it either way, so I stuck to that. Probably it's making the difference of crashing or not on login.

 

I'm using a Sapphire RADEON X1600 PRO (+secondary) (512MB).

Got some ATI Catalyst drivers, currently installed is the new one, which is the 9.4.

 

I did notice it said on the download page that some drivers don't work properly with EL anyway, so I guess maybe it's just no use. My drivers changed almost a year ago because my old one overheated due to not enough cooling and I got my brothers drivers instead.

 

Well anyway, if ya got any ideas, I'm sure I'll be reminded of checking this topic later. :)

Yes, I did, no luck with that either.

 

This is the error log with the fresh install and the 9.4 drivers.

Let's try one more thing...

[23:26:03] Damn, it seems that you are out of luck, we are in the software mode now, so the game will be veeeeery slow. If you DO have a 3D accelerated card, try to update your OpenGl drivers...

The Radeon X1600 has been moved to ATI's legacy driver support structure. So you'll need Catalyst 9.3 or earlier.

9.4 does not support your card (see all the ", not using it..." messages when initializing the GL_* Extensions).

Just crashes as I want to open now, doesn't even go to login.

Does that have to do possible with the data_dir thing or something?

I dunno really. :)

Well, after the last driver update and more help and stuff being tried out, I guess it simply won't work. ^^

It's ok I guess. Thanks for all the help tho, Thyralax and Gampa.

Keep in mind, that you can try out older driver versions also. Maybe they work on your computer.

 

So dont give up that easily :)

I could sit here for hours to try and fix it, simply to get on the game for those few people...

The most important which I can reach through other programs anyhow.

 

And eventually I can play games who're nicer on my computer and should be more difficult to run, but they don't give problems. :/

Perhaps one day after I find a job and put my own computer together instead of being on this old one, I'll download EL and get on it and hopefully without having to go through a bunch of hassle to make it work.

howdy all

 

I've been trying to log in the game on the last days, and unsucessfull too, and I have the same graphic card, ati x1650 pro.

Tried on Windows 7 and fedora 11. Windows 7 logins into the game, but crashes after my char appears at bank.

On Fedora, just crashes my computer, I need to push the reset button.

 

Maybe this gfx card has some issue.
