Help Please i have technical issues

Help Please i have technical issues

Hello i am new to this franchise and i have enjoyed this game for 15 minutes or so and i am new here as well.

When i play this game my computer shuts down for no reason after 15 minutes of Gameplay. i have already tried reinstalling it and the problem is still there.

My second problem is that the sound seems to lag from the video.

My hardware:

ASUS HDMI 4850 ATI = Vid
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 7.1 24bit = Sound
Anthalon AMD 64 4000+ = CPU

Help! Thank you!

Re: Help Please i have technical issues

Ok - lets start. Problems with game crashing (shutting down computer etc etc) sometimes are hard to recognize. First of all You must be sure u have newest versions of your drivers installed. Tell us more - which Windows you use (XP or Vista), tell us you can recognise your version of drivers or not and you know how to  unistall old/install new drivers or not.

There are links to free download of drivers. http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx
http://support.creative.com/Products/pr … d+Blaster#

Try to reduce your settings. Looks like your graphic card is really good (I played 1650x1080 without problems), but your processor is a little to low. This is possible reason of audio lags.

It's possible your processor is too hot after these 15 minutes of playing and mainboard shutting down your PC to prevent this unit to be overheated.

OK - and take this - try to close all programs working with windows like communicators, mail clients, extra add ons, try to reduce your graphic settings. Go to options/ graphic setting and reduce your quality setting. Set all to OFF or LOW and test this.

Re: Help Please i have technical issues

1)download new drivers.
2) go to your Control Panel, open Add/Remove Programs
3) select Ati or Ati Radeon Driver(s) then click Remove button. Its possible you have more than one Ati programs installed (something like Ati Control Panel or ATI Uninstall Tool) - uninstall them all.
There is the Ati logo, so icon will be similar.

5) Restart your PC - your desktop will change his resolution, don't be scared.
6) Just install new drivers (and restart your PC again. Thats all.

Re: Help Please i have technical issues

First of all try this with graphic drivers, and test your game for crashing, in my opinion graphic driver is more important (but not always).

Re: Help Please i have technical issues

All. You can remove ATI - Software Uninstall Utility first. If i remember good, this is a little program which can uninstall all other Ati programs. New Ati driver will install all these programs again.

If You want to be sure - download this usefull software - http://downloads.guru3d.com/Motherboard … d-204.html

Mainboard monitor can tell you in which temperature your processor is working - test when you play. Good and easy way to minimize you processor temperature is - clean your CPU Fan and/or radiator. Sometimes its enough, when you're using vacuum cleaner for that ab

Re: Help Please i have technical issues

hello,

I have read the above and if you are sure it is not your graphics card which in my case I am having problems with and you are sure your cpu is over heating there is a program called motherboard monitor it allows you to check your tempertures of everything and change when they come on also are you sure that your fans are working at all? there is no need for a fan when just browsing the internet but when you are gaming you are maxing out your pc and there for causeing heat I have fried a pc from this constant online gaming for hours so see if your fans are working most pcs have 2 a case fan and a processor fan it may be that your processor fan quit on you.

Re: Help Please i have technical issues

if the problem is still happening, go to start, run, and type in "msconfig"
then go to the services tab and uncheck them all, restart and try your game
if it doesn't work, check them all again and go to the startup tab and uncheck all of them then shutdown and try game
if it doesn't work and you have an antivirus software, turn it off and try your game. If when you turn off one of these and in works (lets say when you turn off all the services it works) then turn off half, restart and try your game. Then do process of elimination to find the one that is the problem.

my game (midway) was broken and this fixed it

  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Its now live on Moddb and here is the link, requires a Batlestations Midway game to be installed to work «link» - midway - skinpack/addons/international - bsm - collection - light - version Enjoy
  • Runsva : are we still talikg about the zyy modding pack??
  • N_Trainz : Yeah I wanted to do this, but the installers were being a pain giving me errors about something. I finally got it working, and just figured out how to make the updater now since it'll be two parts with one containing the misc files and the other mostly the mpak files. It'll be a stand - alone DLC mod just like the Bismarck Mission Pack was. Like I said I plan to have it all completed and uploaded by this weekend
  • Legendary Da : No, no, not problem at all; I am already grateful that you were thinking about this subject, I can wait as long as you need to. Thanks for the help (again), and feel no need to rush this subject; we all know that the life comes first. :)
  • N_Trainz : Hope you won't mind the wait, it'll be worth it if you ask me, and yes I do understand that you can't download due to that cap Mege has. I heard the PM was down, but haven't tried it as I been busy helping the BSmodHQ team with things and then those that are life - in - general.
  • N_Trainz : To Legendary Da: I been trying to work on that actually, what I'm experiencing is the pack size> I already made it a light version of the mod, so hopefully this weekend maybe, might be sooner
  • Legendary Da : To N_Trainz: So, um... I can't exactly download from Mega for some reason; so could u upload that mod to Moddb? I am sorry for making extra work for you, and I TOTALLY understand if u can't upload it again; so, do as you want; I just wanted to say somehow I couldn't dl the mod (btw, why isn't the PM working?). U don't have to post the link either; I'll find it from the site if u upload it. Thanks whatever u do, and so sorry for the extra wish. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
  • Runsva : If that hepls...
  • Runsva : The link that I donloaded from is the one message before the last one on page 4 on this forum because all the others are for some reason down.
  • YamatoFavor : Zyy eh... doubt I installed successfully and seems like I lost the build
  • Axis_Crusher : Well I am aware of that mod, but I've never installed it. I'll ask around if I can find someone that successfully installed it.
  • Runsva : The zyy modding pack v1.0.3
  • Axis_Crusher : Just so we're on the same page which mod are you trying to install?
  • Runsva : Game*
  • Runsva : Do i need to make a copy of my gamr folder like Battlestations Midway?
  • Runsva : No I didn't install it into a separate directory, it is in steamapps - - > common like any other steam game.
  • Runsva : pls help me fix it i really want to play this mod :D
  • Runsva : and i copied every file to the mpak folder in the bsp directory, and when i try to run it it just crahes onthe main menu screen
