Bluescreen when map finished loading
« on: 20-08-2012, 16:08:18 »
Hi,

when i start a singleplayer map i get a bluescreen as soon as the map finished loading. I assume a problem with the AI, but have no further idea. Tried several maps. Vanilla BF2 no problems, FH2 online no problems. Latest BF2/FH2 patches. Win7 64bit.

Anny suggestions?

I get the exact same thing.
Fortunately, I have dual boot OSes and I can run it in XP fine, but in Windows 7, BSOD at map load

There is respite in that, if I delete my Fh2 folder in 'my documents' and create a new account, I have one map list I can play on condition I don't exit and create a new maplist. After which BSOD returns.

Any one find a solution for this? Might not just be in SP though...

So it's not just me.

I've only played a few rounds of SP because of this BSOD bullshit.

It's always a 'portcls' related crash, which I used to get quite frequently if I had the audio to set "Ultra high".

Dropping it down to "High" fixed it in earlier versions, but with the same settings in 2.45 I get this BSOD 60-70% of the time (in SP, MP seems fine so far).

I'll try dropping it to "Medium", hopefully that'll fix it.


(I'm running an X-Fi Titanium on Win 7.)

No good. Dropped it down to low and it still CTDed.

I'm running on windows 7 64 bit and I don't get this at all  ???
My settings are around about medium. If this ever happens to me though I think I'll ragequit life because I only ever play SP...

It never happened before. I just started happening a week ago, and it happens now ever since.

Thanks. When i delete "~\Documents\Forgottenhp 2\Profiles\0002\mapList.con" before i start the game, i can play singleplayer. as soon as i exit the game/map, i have to delete the file and restart the game.

Its no solution, but at least a stopgap.

Anyone know why this actually occurs and how to solve it?

I've got no idea why deleting the mapList.con would affect the audio...but dropping the Quality setting back to Medium seems to have solved it for me.

Audio Renderer: X-Fi
Audio Quality: Medium

Successfully loaded 6 maps in a row (so far).

Audio Renderer: X-Fi
Audio Quality: Medium

Works for me too. Thanks!

I'm wondering if there is a difference in the sound quality now.

There would be, but I doubt you'd be able to notice it without directly comparing the two.

Doesn't really sound any different to me, I guess it's just using less voices/channels or something on Medium...  :-\
