NOLF 2 crashed after graphics go weird

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I installed NOLF2 on a Windows 7, 64-bit, PC, patched it to 1.3, modded it etc. In multiplayer everything works fine. But the singleplayer mode crashes after a minute or so to desktop. First the graphics go all weird: I can see through doors or there are colorful stripes and beams in my way ... any ideas? Oh, and I use an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 graphics card.

You may want to try Windows XP Compatibility mode if it keeps crashing with the client error.

thx, I tried that and it didn´t work. I´ve been playing arount with the graphics resolution though. It seems to help to reduce the resolution. I can play for 5 minutes now ... :)

I had similar issues with other old games. First I do the regular stuff:

- Start in WinXP compatibility
- Always run as administrator

 

Then I open my GPU Software. I put every setting on application based = the application controls the GPU and the GPU will not force anything on the application

 

The final part is tinkering. You start the game in a resolution that was acceptable when the game was released. Usually 1024x728. You then disable all hardware options. ALL of them.

You then start enabling options on an option by option base untill you get errors. When you finally got the options together that make it work, you play with the resolution.

 

Sometimes these old games use effects we no longer use. Modern cards deliver better performance and possibilities but not always backwards compatible. You may find your FPS and stability soar when you disable "shadows of stupid little useless objects".

Good to hear it worked out Ion. If you want to play with us, it would be a smart idea to get into our whatsapp group. We communicate almost daily on when everybody is online.

I can also text you with a regular text message when we have decided on a date and time for nolf 2. Whatever suits you best :-) All these modern gadgets we have mean we can get the best out of it.
