Windows 7 64-bit problems

Windows 7 64-bit problems

I've been having problems and cant run battlestations pacific on my pc due to windows 7. It enters the game and runs it completely fine, but after 1 minute or less of playing, the scren goes black and the computer restarts. It cant be the pc's power since it is a brand-new gaming pc. any suggestions?

Re: Windows 7 64-bit problems

PC Power has nothing to do with restarting whole PC. Slow PC can run game slowly or on low details, or sometimes is not able to run the game, but restarting PC usually means computer problems. As far as we know BSP working well with Windows 7 64bit version.

How about other games, especially new or almost new (which needs modern PC to run them). Can you play these games without any problems?

Re: Windows 7 64-bit problems

Did You tried to reinstall game?

Are you sure your drivers and DirectX are up to date?

Can you give us specification of your PC? (especially graphic card) Is this PC or notebook ?

Re: Windows 7 64-bit problems

Do this now

- reduce all graphic quality settings to lowest you can. Try to play with these settings and tell us about effect.
- Try to reinstall game. Sometimes it can helps. Tell us about effect.
check http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catal … ws-7-64bit compare your version of drivers with the newest version which is available on AtiAMD site and try to uninstall old and install the newest version of drivers.

These 3 things must be tested before continuing research.

Re: Windows 7 64-bit problems

ill do that later, im gonna lower the resolution to 800x600, texture to medium and disable ocean reflection since it covers most of the map. the problem must be the enviroment which is huge, so i hate to lower the graphics to increase performance.

Re: Windows 7 64-bit problems

Nono - I don't want to tell You that your card is weak. Because isn't. Reduce your graphic settings and try to play BSP just for test. I can't see your PC so i need some info. So do not reduce setting forever - just for test.

Reducing quality of graphic (also resolution - use 1024 low quality for test) will assume less gpu/cpu power. And thanks to that it's possible we can recgnise the reason on restarting PC.

Re: Windows 7 64-bit problems

i do have 1024, but i have 4x antalysis and high texture. ive tried it with medium texture and it lasted longer. i then tried without antalysis, but high texture and it lasted about 5 minutes. i should start with what i said previously and if it works, ill increase bit by bit until i reach the limit.

Re: Windows 7 64-bit problems

In fact it looks like your graphic card is overheated. Battlestations Pacific assuming a lot of GPU power and that game is very sensitive for all GPU problems. Try to lower all disable antialiasing and check that, how long you can play BSP.

PS: With good Radeon 5750 you should be able to play BSP in 1024 resolution all high and with AA.

Additional question
Which other games you have installed on your PC?

Re: Windows 7 64-bit problems

i just tried it, it didnt work but it lasted way longer. it lasted about 3 minutes. i put these settings:
800x600
antalysis disabled
medium texture
water reflection disabled

i dont think it is the graphics. the other games i have installed in the pc are:
GTR evolution
GTR2
battleforge
fifa manager 10

any other help? i really think it is the windows 7. one question, how does installing new drives help? my pc is new, but can it still have old drives?

Re: Windows 7 64-bit problems

All these games are old. Fifa Manager is almost new, but it not need top quality graphic. So in fact BSP is most advanced game you have installed. You can check your drivers version in the Ati control panel under info or about. Remember the latest drivers are 10.3.

If you notice that you have old drivers - download new drivers on your PC, unistall old drivers (from Windows Control Panel), reboot your PC, install new drivers, reboot your PC, try BSP again.

And yes it's possible your drivers are not up to date. Even on new PC. Now i'm out, we can try more ideas tomorrow.

Re: Windows 7 64-bit problems

Because I have friend who has both BSP and BSM installed on Win7 and everything working OK. I'll ask him tomorrow about version of his Win7. But im sure it's 64bit.

I do not want to write about Eidos, because I would have started to use bad words. Just check their official spammed site abandoned by team and you will understand what im talking about.

  • 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.
