Game crashes to Blue screen

Postby Yagodewinter » Mon Jun 12, 2006 3:45 pm

Hi I have just bought Shadowgrunds via Steam.

My PC Konfig is:

Athlon 3800+ Dual
Radeon 9800XT
2GB RAM
Realtek AC 97 On-Board Soundcard

When I try to run Shadowgrounds my PC crashes with a blue screen.

The launcher does not show up so I can not try to adjust the settings.

Any idea or help for my problem?

regards

Yagode

So you get a BSOD, before the launcher shows up?

Which Steam language version you have?

This sounds very much like a Steam problem and not the game's... you could try verifying the game cache files, or redownloading... but you probably should issue a SteamTicket in the Steam support section, as this is probably out of our reach to fix.

I will download the demo and try if it works with changed settings.

I had a similar problem with steam in the past, windows seemed to change some settings after a crash. My directX was up to date, but something was corrupted because of the crash. When I re-installed directX it worked fine again. I doubt something like this is the problem here, but you'll never know.

I downloaded and installed the demo from gamershell. No problem.
I checked my shadogrounds folder under steam and started the Launcher. There was no content to select. I compared the directory with the shadowgrounds demo directory and found that the folders:
Config and Profiles were missing. I copied them from the shadowgrounds demo folder and the Launcher showed Localization missing.
When I copied Data1.fbz into the Steam Shadowgrounds folder I could adjust the Launcher settings. Data1.fbz was missing in the Steam Shadowgrounds folder btw.

Now I try to start the game, hope my PC does not crash again :-(

That's normal, because Steam uses its own filesystem (there's a "shadowgrounds.gcf" or "shadowgrounds demo.gcf").

It might be worth it to re-install DirectX, and also do a defrag on your harddrives.

Edit 13 July: And now that Steam has updated the filesystem, you could try again... hopefully it helps?
