need help game crashes and wont re-install

need help game crashes and wont re-install

I was having problems playing BSM 2-3 days ago. I closed out of it and tried to re-open it. It didnt work. There was an error. I think it was :0x009cdc08...at...0x00000000. I tried re-opening it like 5 times. Nothing worked. I uninstalled BSM and then tried to re-install. It worked fin up until the point called "copying new files." It takes forever and there is alwayse an error. It is "error 1305" It says "trouble reading from c/program files... It says to go there and make sure the file is there. I go check and it is there i then press retry. It runs fine (doesn't seem to do anything though) for about 5 min. Then the same error comes up. I had trouble installing BSM when i first got it. Obviously it worked but now when i try what i did in the begenning, it wont work. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!

Re: need help game crashes and wont re-install

Possible reasons

    DVD-ROM media is dirty or damaged.
    DVD-ROM configuration on the system is incorrect.
    Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) installation on your PC is either damaged or outdated.


In case 1) - clean your DVD-Rom and clean your disc. Try to copy (not install) all files from DVD to your hard disc.
In case 2) - try to install other game
In case 3) ... maybe later.

Also it's possible you don't have privileges to write in C:/Program Files. Try to install Midway on other partition. For example D: or D:/Program Files or whatever.

I don't know, how about US, but in Europe you can have digital copy of your purchased games (also movies, music etc). You can also download it from Internet.

Re: need help game crashes and wont re-install

How  about other games? Can You play them ? It looks like hardware problem. Especially memory (RAM).

http://www.memtest86.com/

You can download and burn cd (bootable) which let you check your memory for errors.

Sometimes reinstall of Windows can helps.

Re: need help game crashes and wont re-install

The reinstallation of windows is a bit over kill for this problem, as long as the error isnt an issue when you try to run other disc programs, then it could be an issue with your BSM disc just being scratched up or other reasons which I dont want to hear ae. The alternative is it could be an issue with your RAM, possibility it overheated as EST might have pointed out on, basically im reiterating EST but, if no other disc programs work, give the Memory test a shot that good ol EST provided, if it fails then cool down your computer or swap out your RAM stick.

Btw EST the digital copy stuff is everywhere where not a European exclusive, sorry guys, but you still have the euro we don't got that yet. ag

Re: need help game crashes and wont re-install

i am now starting to think it is not BSM that is the problem. As i said, i have tried like 4 different games and none of them have worked. I tried that memory thing but it frooze or did something bad and never gave me results. Also i might not be using it right though. I might contact microsoft b/c  it doesn't seem to be BSM.
I got BSP today so i will try that.

Re: need help game crashes and wont re-install

Look like you  need to reinstall that Windows. Just to test before visit in service.

Noone likes it but after it working really cool ab  The other options are - loan the memory RAM from any frined and test your PC again.

Re: need help game crashes and wont re-install

the memory scan found no problems. Nothing else worked. I am confident it isn't BSM or BSP that is the problem. I think it is my computer. I will 99% NOT re-install windows. Any other suggustions?

Re: need help game crashes and wont re-install

Check processor temperature. Maybe it's time to clean radiators?

Test for viruses: http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/

Use System Recovery (Accesories - System Tools) and try to return your windows to the state, where you did not have problems.

Other software (not games) running OK ?

  • Legendary Da : Hi everyone, I have one (or two) quick question about BS:M modding. I try to figure out sp mapmaking, and my first act on it was to convert a MP map to SP. However I can only play as Allies in those maps. What parameter do I have to change to play those maps as Japanese in the respective map .mpak (And where is the parameter I have to change?)?
  • N_Trainz : G'day mates, I just wanted to let those who use Windows 10 and also for those who are having troubles getting the game launching because of Games for Windows LIVE, I made a tutorial of how to get it working successfully again like on Windows 8.1. Its on my channel and here's the link to the video. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : The dictator, I downloaded the mmod2txm and I added four slots to the fletcher and a couple to the lexington.Thanks for the help though.
  • The Dictator : Makeo67 i've explained how to find the unused slots in the topic and the mmod2txm it's a program that has been shared. However there aren't so many ships with unused platforms and sme of them are in wrong positions and for move them you need to know how to change the mmod file. But if you know how to do it you can make new platfors as you want. I've shared the south dakota disposition and this one is the most intersting in my opinion
  • N_Trainz : Well it looks like we have spammers again
  • Mokeo67 : No problem Thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : Not really
  • Mokeo67 : Ok thanks anyway. Do you know who does?
  • Axis_Crusher : Unfortunately I don't deal with that part of modding
  • Mokeo67 : Sorry forgot the link. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : This is the forum topic I meant. The dictator said he found the unused slots in the TXM file obtainable with the mmod2txm, what is this and is it available to use.
  • Axis_Crusher : This is your best bet: «link»
  • Mokeo67 : Also I saw on the forum that ships have unused platform slots. How do I use these?
  • Mokeo67 : I tried changing the bogue class carrier to a yorktown class in the phillipene sea mission and one of two things happened. The mission either didnt change or the game crashed.
  • Axis_Crusher : No problem
  • Mokeo67 : That is what im talking about. Ill have a look at it later thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : specific mission’s 3_scene mpak file by working on the .lua file. There is where the bonus unit is actually added into the mission (by the script). I haven't tried it myself so good luck.
  • Axis_Crusher : I assume you are talking about the bonus units that you unlock for certain missions by completing previous ones (like the B - 25’s in the 2nd Battle of Guadalcanal). The bonus units are unlocked by completing certain objectives in the campaign - so that is linked to your campaign progress. Since that cannot be altered you must look at the missiontree.lua file. This is where the unit will show up unlocked on the mission screen. There are references to allunitslock. Also you will have to edit the
  • Mokeo67 : Thank you I will look in this file. I did unlock all the campaign missions, all you have to do is delete the text after 'prerequisite' and it will unlock. But I havent figured out how to unlock the bonus units.
  • Axis_Crusher : I also prefer it being off, just as most of the BSM community. Most players, however prefer repair to be enabled so that is what we should do. Most of our maps it will be disabled through the script however. If you want to play with the game's repair settings you can find it under shipglobals.lua
