Game crashes (solution)
I have played the game and reached my first visit to the planet Yarent. From then on, I was getting series & series of game crashes like those:
Precursors.exe caused an EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION in module vital.dll at 0023:55041852, t_staticmesh::WindowToLocalOrigin()+0018 byte(s)
EAX=0018B974 EBX=0018B870 ECX=00004809 EDX=0018B7BC ESI=00004809
EDI=0018B9D4 EBP=0018B904 ESP=0018B76C EIP=55041852 FLG=00210206
CS=0023 DS=002B SS=002B ES=002B FS=0053 GS=002B
The cause was:
When running the game, Precursors will write cache files into UserDocumentsPrecursorsCACHE
These files are updated as soon as you quit the game and may corrupt with new saves after re-installation or moving new content in the SAVE folder.
If for whatever reason you want to backup your save files, be sure to backup the WHOLE Precursors folder in Documents, and not only the SAVE folder.
If you encounter game crashes like above and you cannot play further after loading a Quicksave or normal Save, do the following:
- Load your corrupt Quiicksave or normal Save
- Quick save the game immediately before it crashes with F9
- Quit Precursors
- In the DocumentsPrecursors folder, delete all the files in the CACHE folder
- Delete these 3 files in your game folder PrecursorsCACHEPC:
After that, load your newly saved game and there should be no constant crashes anymore, except some rare sound driver related crashes. Quicksave your game often!
The above post was updated on 19.06.2013
Changes: there are also some cache files to be deleted in the game folder.
Have you experienced any crashes when using the meks on Reandore.
Up to now, I've only played the Combat Robot (the mission was to steal it in a base), used the tricycle and the combat buggy. No game crashes or problems, except:
After 2 hours of play, my laptop has shut down due to overheating (is it the cold climate in Italy ?!), so I will have definitly to step down with the maximal set video settings !!! 🙁
Maybe I shouldn't leave 4 Explorer Windows open before playing and also quit Firefox...
There is a option to hack them if your hacking skill is good enough.theirs one sat on the front lines.
