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    Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) installation on your PC is either damaged or outdated.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 ?

  • N_Trainz : No it was created by multiple authors from around the world. I just made it so its actually a mod instead of a complete game that's about 7GB in size. The readme file that is displayed can give you more info about the mod
  • Runsva : hey ntrainz did u make this mod all by yourself?
  • N_Trainz : If you need any other help, just shout out and I'll try to get back as soon as possible
  • N_Trainz : Its not a problem :D I do thank you for waiting for a long time to get the mod. Again hope you enjoy the mod and the other fun features it comes with
  • Legendary Da : I don't know how many times I said that, but thank you so much for your work. Considering how much time making an installer, making it work and uploading it to different servers, I thank you again for the effort you put in this. :D
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Here it is, installers works this time and Moddb won't accept it as they say its too large to upload, so its on my Google Drive and here is the link, hope you enjoy it «link»
  • Legendary Da : I had guessed it was about the wrong area, though I still wondered why it had been removed. Thanks for taking your time to make something better for the community. Take as much time as you require, though; life still comes first.
  • N_Trainz : Actually it was removed by me for 2 reasons; 1. was it was uploaded in the wrong area and 2. the installer didn't autp - detect the disk version, only the Steam version (since that is what I have). Going to remake it so if you won't mind a but longer wat that'll be appreciated
  • Legendary Da : Thanks soo much for the mod, I couldn't access to the Internet lately so I couldn't write a reply. Btw, the mod is removed from ModDB, is it taken down, or you removed it yourself? Either way, thanks for the awesome work (at least for providing it) :D
  • N_Trainz : What game and mod are you dealing with?
  • Runsva : Can someone PLEASE help me i can't install anything on my game it just keeps crashing!!
  • 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.
