How can I fix this xray 1.6 engine crash?

All the forums I've read wereabout the steam version.

I've re-installed twice with no success.

I Have
windows 8.1

Processor; 1.60GHz AMD A8-4555M APU w/Radeon HD Graphics

RAM: 4.00gb

system type: 64-bit

A8-4555m has a 7600G card integrated.

I was playing the game all the way up to the pripyat underground.

why do i have to update my graphics driver and directx.
the crash did'nt happen during gameplay

Just because you played to a certain point doesn't mean they haven't become corrupted or made a bad call to resources due to errors in installation.

And driver installs are quicker and easier than backing up your save, uninstalling, reinstalling, and repatching the game. CoP has many known errors with DirectX and graphics drivers because it is a base DX 9.0 engine with DX 10 and 11 effects tacked on without thorough testing for performance and compatibility. That's just compounded by the poor architecture of Windows 8's kernel.

Quicker and easier, and you wont lose all your progress. IF these don't work, it is a bad game install. Nuke it, clean out all folders and reinstall clean.

...post the damned crash report so I can actually see what's happening maybe? How is posting the tiniest bit of your system specs in any way going to tell me what's crashing and why?

If you're using the steam version, it's in Steam\steamapps\common\stalker call of pripyat\_appdata_\logs

If you're using a non-steam version, it's in your windows user profile's appdata folder.

Zip up xray_yournamehere.log and the most recent minidump file, stick them on here, and I'll tell you how to fix your shit.
>> No. 48652 ID: 626b5e

Also list any mods you're running, any 3rd party graphics enhancements and other related software, etc. If it's relevant, post it.

  Compare with this. Squares invade rectangles, the game.

I mean, yes, you can zoom in and it looks fantastic, but you'll never spend more than 10% of your time at that level. Also you might as well turn your speakers off. I'm not saying it has to be over the top like CnC usually is, but you need some kind of personality.

I guess I'm letting my jimmies get rustled cause I get hype for RTSs, and it's hard not to with a trailer like that, but ultimately the final product has been so different from what the trailers are. I'm skeptical the game will be anything I personally am looking for out of an RTS, but how do I wish it will resemble that.

Nice to see this in development after 'C&C Generals 2' was cancelled by EA.

I hope you can build ships at a shipyard type building, and engage in naval combat like you could in Act of War - High Treason.

I bought Red Dragon during the summer Steam sale and I'm very happy with it. I enjoy it more than ALB.

There's the constant whining about balance and overpowered this and that, but I enjoy it and I thought it was well worth the money.

You do like flying sims, don't you? You did enjoy Rise of Flight, didn't you?

The Gotha is already in Rise of Flight, along with the Handley Page 0-400.

Basically what happened (IIRC) was that a Russian historical society put up the money for 777 to model the Ilya and make a Eastern Front map for the game. The historical group gets a game they can wheel out at events, and 777 gets the prestige and can release it as a low-cost version of RoF for people who are maybe interested in the game but aren't ready to start spending a lot of money on it. (I managed to luck out and grab the game and most of the DLC on Steam for 75% off during the last Christmas sale) Hopefully it'll do well and they'll be able to model some of the indigenous Russian fighters later on.

Personally I can't wait for them to finish IL-2: Battle of Stalingrad. That's the main thing I'm looking forwards to.

I bought the early access version of this game.

Damn. These Ilya Murometses don't go down easily.

Also, I'm really, really hoping for some KuK aircraft.

I want to get a bigger monitor, but I have no idea what's good. I have a 20 inch right now, powered by a GTX 560 Ti. I'd like to get a 24" or maybe a 27", but I don't know what specs I should be looking for.
My current monitor uses a DVI cable, and my GPU has no HDMI port, just DVI and mini HDMI. It doesn't seem like many monitors come with DVI ports. I've read that the primary advantage of HDMI over DVI is that it has audio, which I don't really need. I use headphones 99% of the time and when I don't I plug my stereo system into the audio out on the MOBO. Should I look for HDMI anyway? Should I get a mini HDMI to HDMI cable and use that? Should I get a new GPU to power the larger monitor? So many questions...

I'm a 16:10 fanboi, so the following is safe for you to increase your sodium intake if you so care to read:

Golden ratio. Gotta love it. Sucks ass for most vidya gaymen. What a shame. It was mostly killed by a cheap as fuck video industry. It's a damn fucking shame. That aside, if your most played video games support it, you run windowed mode, or you're using Xorg stuff, then go for 16:10. If this is a dedicated vidya playin machine or you watch a shitton of movies, then I guess you could be a pleb and get 16:9.


IPS can be really slow if you don't pick the right ones. But this is mostly a complaint if you play shmups, fightan games, FPSs, music games, and other really fast paced games, as I do. So be warned. Otherwise, it'll get the job done. Especially if you want really nice color and angle viewing.

Also, this thread has gone on this long without the logical increments post?

Well besides the fact the more expensive one also has superior display quality, yes, do get the extra 120 pixels. Always get the extra 120 pixels. You can always letterbox into 1080 but never expand to 1200.

So, is this one of the right ones? I play FPSs pretty regularly, will I notice lag?

>5ms GTG
You tell me. Look at the math:
Edison (pretty sure it was him) said that most shit should be, at minimum, 42FPS. Otherwise, eye strain occurs. Fuck that shit. We're in the 21st century. Let's go to 60FPS. The speed of most fighters and shmups.

Frames per second: The number of F5s your game makes to your display buffer every second.

ms: milliseconds.

60 frames / seconds.

Take the reciprocal of this and you find out how long a frame is. 1 second / 60 frames.

This is 0.016... seconds per frame.

DP will daisychain on equipped monitors at certain resolutions
DP 1.2 will do 4k with a single cord to a monitor at high refresh rates

4k + HDMI = dual HDMI if the monitor AND card will support it... if you want above 30hz for the refresh rate. You'll have severe input as well as display lag if you run 4k at 30hz which is all you can poop out of a HDMI cable with off-the-shelf equipment (read, not developer shit sitting in the SCIF at Nvidia, etc)

Not that I have been researching displays due to wanting some serious area to work with or anything for the DerpBox and my duties for work (yay, work at home, tax writeoff for my computah maybe)

yeah I am serious ...and btw relax your anus . I didn't say FC3 was in ANY way a "bad" game or really even that flawed .

Yeah it has it's flaws. The enemy a.i. is still kinda dumb even on the hardest setting , and the non carnivorous animals are way too dumb as well this is a populated island and they would know after generations to avoid the ones that walk upright on two legs whenever possible.

The menu system is sort of non-immersive but I'm not going to nitpick it as as you mentioned : smartphone.

As far as generational curve FC3 is flat out better than 2 and by extension 2 is better than 1 . Placing FC3 as top dog of the heap by de fecto.

I have high hopes for 4 even though let's be honest Ubisoft will still focus on consoles first and invariably fuck something up ..for the most recent evidence just look at the WAY beyond overhyped watchdogs.

If they genuinely cared as opposed to played strictly according to the triple A publisher playbook and focusing exclusively on sucking shareholder's knobs we would already have a "perfect" deification hits osculation in paradise simulator FPS.

but the real question is : Would it make a profit ?

Seriously dudes, if anyone has this for 360 they just released a patch that must have come out only a few months ago (which is odd for a 2008 game) and I notice significant changes in the AI behaviour. You literally can stealth now, it's still difficult but not as flawed, and no more xray vision enemies. Even without the camo suit, I can evade and engage much easier just by staying crouched.

Don't ask me how or why this happened 6 years after the game was released, but there you have it. Slotting floppies has never been this glorious
