Titanwarrior89 -> RE: Distant Worlds has stopped working (11/24/2011 5:19:53 PM)

This is what I get when I click on details of the problem.

ORIGINAL: Deto

And not started at all. I was able to play distant worlds before quite a few months back, now I reinstalled, patched, got ROTS and so on. When I hit start from launcher or distantworlds exe file, the game crashes. Error is:

Description:
Stopped working

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: CLR20r3
Problem Signature 01: distantworlds.exe

I'm running Windows 7, 64bit. dotNet is installed along with directX. I have ATI FirePro V4800 if it means anything :)

edit: I have dotNet 4.0

edit2: Made sure I have .Net 3.5 + directx 9c. No difference :<

What about if just install Distant Worlds original? (i.e. without ROTS) Do you get a more detailed error message in that case?

Thanks

Yes with just Distant worlds installed a long tabbed error comes up.....don't remember what it said.

If you had that message I could probably help you better [:)]

If I had to guess, I would say that Windows Media Player or Internet Explorer are not installed, or are disabled somehow - but you've ruled that out.

That error message with just DW original installed would help more.

Question.  When I ran the Dxdiag under the systems page it showed directx 11.  I have windows vista, I thought windows 7 only had 10 or higher.  So since directx 9c is not installed according to my system report(I thought 9c was) will that keep Distant Worlds from starting up with out error?  It was running fine-then just stopped working......read earlier post in this thread.

You will definitely need DirectX 9.0c installed on your PC. The easiest way to ensure that this is the case is to let the Distant Worlds installation program install it for you.

After installing this you should check that you can see the following entries in the folder C:\Windows\assembly\

Microsoft.DirectX (version 1.0.2902.0)
Microsoft.DirectX.DirectSound (version 1.0.2902.0)

Elliotg, I checked in the file and Directx version 1.0.2902.0 is in the file along with the direct sound(same version). Note: I bought Legends hoping that would help(long shot). It didn't.[&:]

Now that you have Legends, there's a new trouble-shooting possibility:

Download the latest Legends patch (1.7.0.2). I think you need a Matrix members account to get this.

DW Legends 1.7.0.2 has logging that writes technical info to a text file if the game crashes. If you have a crash this file can be found in the following location:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Code Force Limited\Distant Worlds\1.7.0.2\DW_CrashDump.txt

Please post the text of this file here in this thread and I can get a better idea of what is going wrong.

Thanks
Elliot

Elliotg, here is the file you were speaking of. Hopefully I attached it correctly. Thanks for the help.

Thanks for that crash file.

That's an error I've never seen before - looks like you're missing the Arial font on your Windows PC. This is the font that DW defaults to before overriding this with the in-game font.

Maybe you need to add the Arial font back onto your PC. Or maybe the font is damaged and needs a reinstall. Possibly just one part of the font is missing, i.e. the Arial Regular typeface.




Titanwarrior89 -> RE: Distant Worlds has stopped working (11/30/2011 2:09:30 AM)

Okie doe ill see what I can do. Thanks again.
