NOLF1 Wont Start (Windows 10)

Recommended Posts

Well, there aint no "Techincal Difficulties" forum on this site so might as well post it here

 

So i installed NOLF1 On my pc (That has windows 10) and i used the 32bit installer (i dont have the goty edition) and when i run the game, it will act like it will start up, then it wont. the wheel on the mouse cursor will show that somethings loading but then it wont open. i have tried everything, patching the thing to the latest versions, nothing. is anyone else have this problem?

Actually there is, Technical Support > NOLF 1 Technical Help. :) I've moved your thread to the appropriate forum for you.

 

I have it running on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. I have the GotY edition, but patching it to 1.3 should be the same. I run it as an administrator, use the compatibility fix and the multiplayer launcher.

Well I'm having no luck so far on Win 8.1 - It just won't launch and I've tried all the updates, running it as admin, compatibility mode. I'll try the multiplayer launcher but I really only wan't to play the story mode.

@FortranDragon what compaitbility fix are you referring to? I can't see anything like that in the downloads section, unless you just mean the patches?

 

EDIT: OK Well the multiplayer laucher does manage to launch the game but as it loads I get the MFC Applcation has stopped working error...arrgh I've been at this for hours and so close, an others have it running so why can't I get it going?

 

EDIT2: Interestingly I have 2 monitors and dual graphics cards, I noticed both screens would filcker and go black one after the other while launching just before the MFC error. On a hunch I disconnected the second monitor, now the game runs fine!

The "compatibility fix" I was thinking about is actually this one http://unityhq.net/forums/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=112, the Fix for Mouse Stutter & Framerate. The installed file is names NOLFCompatFix.sdb so that's why I remember it as the compatibility fix. Sorry for an confusion.

 

I run the game with dual monitors, but a single graphics card. I guess it is the combination of two cards and two monitors that is the issue. (Especially if you have SLI or Crossfire enabled for other games)

Is it giving a specific error?

I know this is an old topic, but I managed to get the game to run by forcing vertical sync ON. So many hours spent with hit and miss.

Anyway, I didn't set any compatibility either and it's the GOTY edition running perfectly at 1920 x 1080.

Try going to either Radeon settings or Nvidia control panel to set V Sync On for this game only.

Hope it helps.

Others have been able to get it to run by running it in windowed mode.

My V Sync fix didn't last long, so I'll give that a try @Eliteone

It's odd because a fix will work on first play and then the second time, say later in the day, the game won't start at all.
