ArcheAge game crashing, not glyph launcher just game

Q: ArcheAge game crashing, not glyph launcher just game

I have an ongoing issue where I log onto the glyph launcher, log onto my server, play for a while, sometimes hours with no issue but then BOOM, the game just closes on me and I'm booted back to the launcher. I have to push the PLAY button again, log into the server again, but it seems once the game boots me out then the crashing becomes more frequent.

I at first reported it to Trion support (useless) all they do is copy and paste previous responses from previous games sometimes not even removing the other game titles from it, but all in all I have spent over a month with them and I have:

1. Expanded my paging file to initial size of 1X RAM size max size 2X RAM size (to handle the memory of the game)
2. Switched from DirectX11 down to DirectX9 and back again. (in game)
3. Lowered my FPS (frames per second) to 100 (in game)
4. Switched off Multithread rendering and VSync (in game)
5. They have also had me change the priority of the game archeage.exe to high to see if that helps and it doesn't
( I would start the launcher, log onto the game and the server, go into the character screen, then cntrl + alt + delete into task manager and right click the process and set the priority to high then go back into the game)

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:haveing problems playing a game with out it either randomlly crashing the game...

first of all is this limited to this game alone?do other games run fine?check for any overheating signs,install the latest drivers for your video card and your mobo,direct x and any other update.see if you meet the minimum requirements for the game.(this was just the official response you would get from a techie..so bear with me)

if this is happening in this game only and not in any other and your pc isnt overheating and meeting the minimum requirements,then there is a good chance its an issue with your optical drive,try a combo drive if you've got any around.its an incompatibility issue with some of the games.good luck

Well one thing is that you can take a screenshot by doing the PrintScreen button for the whole screen or ALT+PrintScreen if you want to get the selected window. Just paste it in MSPaint (or your favorite image program)

As to the issue, has it ever worked? Have you tried Windows compatibility mode?

Background: Hey guys! I play a free to play game called eurogunz, website is euro-gunz.eu . I have always been able to play this game just fine on my Dell Optiplex with Windows XP. No problems at all since the summer of last year. All you have to do to start the game is start the launcher, then hit start game. Well, recently I have been pressing the start game button and nothing comes up. The launcher will just disappear and my computer screen will just stay normal as if no command was given to it.

What I have tried: Uninstalling recently downloaded programs especially free anti-viruses which could be the cause of this. I have also made an exception in firewall for this game. When I went to my "C" drive and tried putting everything related to avast antivirus, it won't allow me to saying something like I don't have a sufficient disk or something. My friends have told me to uninstall eurogunz and redownload it which I have done numerous times and still does not work. To be honest though, when I go to control panel -> remove programs, eurogunz and avast anti virus isn't there. Is this supposed to be happening?

How you can help: post here to help me !

Date problem started occurring: 2/4/12
 

A:My game launcher will not start

ok, im no pro, so this may be a shot in the dark and false hope.

you said that it used to run fine on XP, so what operating system are you using now, vista, windows 7? if so that may be your problem. from what i have seen eurogunz looks as though its a european port of a Japanese game (please do correct me if im wrong), meaning that updating it to windows 7 may be a bit tricky.

also if you are using windows vista or 7 it may be having problems with UAC (user account controls). thats the box that pops up asking for permisions to run a program, but sometimes it just wont pop up, and it wont run the program. if this is the case, type UAC into your start bar search bar, and change it to a lower setting. if that dosent work change it to its lowwest, if that dosent work, put it back to where it was before.

I tryed playing AC2, it launches the Ubisoft Game Launcher for the DRM. It gets to logging me into the servers, then the PC hangs. Shortly after the PC restarts. I then purchased Splinter Cell: Conviction and the same thing happened, so it must be the launcher is the problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled the games and the Launcher. The patch for both games and the Game Launcher updated automaticly. I got the same problem. I installed the games on another PC with no problems. I updated my video card and DirectX drivers with no effect. Please Help!

My DxDiag report is the attached .txt file.

According to "http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/" my PC passes the minimum requirements for both games.

I have always played AC2 without any issues untill now and all other games work fine.

A:Game crashing !

this from activision

Make sure you have the latest video and sound card drivers from the manufacturers' websites.
Set your desktop to a resolution of 800x600, 32 bit True Color.
1) Right-click on your desktop and select Properties.
2) Click the Settings tab.
3) Set your screen area to 800x600.
4) Set the colors to 32 Bit (True Color). Under Windows NT this will be listed as 65554 colors.
5) Click Apply and OK.
All background applications must be shutdown prior to running the game.

Delete the options.cfg file from the directory where you installed the game.

A:Game keeps crashing!

Could you possibly post some more info on your system :

Which version of Win ? How much Ram ? What CPU ? What version of Direct X - you can check most of this if you :

Start > Run and type DXDIAG then look at the interface that appears.

Are you shutting down all non essential apps before starting these games as other things like Anti Virus progs will hog your resources. Especially as onboard graphics is using your system ram to function.

Its also worth considering that with such intense games you are likely to need a dedicated graphics card.

Next the above mentioned behaviour started being accompanied by a message saying

Last 2 days, whilst on the battle screen MTW2 just crashes with the Win 7 message box that says

A:Game crashing

Have you actually tried to reinstall the game?

(And for the sake of clarification, with MTW2 you refer to Medieval: Total War 2?)

And if your power cable blows up, that's pretty bad. No idea what could cause that, if it's just a cable without anything else. But your PSU, 520W, isn't too much.

Keep these things in mind;

PSU usually gives less power than in the description. And then, if it's old, your capacitors are getting worn out and your computer will get lot less power than it's supposed to.

However, if your computer wouldn't get enough power, it would crash completely and you'd get constantly overheating issues. But just in case, do you have anything to check your temperatures with?

I sort of have an idea why my games crash, but not entirely sure.

And when I say games crash, I mean EVERY game I've played on my new laptop has crashed at one point or another randomly.

Manufacturer: ASUS - A8JP Notebook
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 (2.00 GHz)
Memory: DDR2 200-Pin Notebook Memory (1 GB)
Hard Drive: 5400 RPM (120GB - 65 & 45 GB Partitions)
Video Card: ATi Mobility Radeon X1700 (256 MB)
Sound Card: SoundMAX Integrated HD Audio
Operating System: Windows XP - Media Center Edition

Anyways, ATi decided to be retarded and release the X1700 Radeon, only to tell users that it is not developing any drivers or updates for it.

So, using the OEM driver from ASUS does not help and modded driver (while improving performance) still give me crashes.

Any ideas? Or is this problem way too broad as I fear it is.

A:crashing when any game is played

You probably have a cheapo power supply(or just a low wattage model) that doesn't have as much power as your system will require. Check the brand, wattage, and amperages per rail(12v, 3.3v, 5v, etc), and post back if you can. The Psu(power supply unit) is in the top back corner of the case usually, so you'll have to open the case to look at it.

When I first got the "Sims 3" game every time I tried to play it, it would crash. Later I learned that I didn't have enough RAM and that I needed to upgrade my graphics card. I took my computer to a shop and got another gigabyte of RAM and I bought a better graphics card. Then I went to "systemrequirementslab.com" and it says that I now meet and exceed all of the requirements for the game. But every time I play, the game closes about 5 minutes into gameplay. An error box would pop up saying that an error had occurred and that the game needed to close. I made sure that my drivers and my game was up to date. I tried lowering all of the game settings and putting the game in window mode, but it still crashed. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game twice. I even turned off my Norton anit-virus program, because some people said that the program might cause conflict with the game, but that didn't work either.

Here are some of my computer specs:
- System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional (Service Pack 3)
- Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.06GHz
- CPU speed: 3.08GHz
- RAM: 1023.4 MB (around 2GB)

i brought GTA:SA 6 months ago, and have been running it on my computer. However, i had to restore my computer, and added ram to it. the ram is fine (tested) but my game will suddenly crash with "the game has stopped responding".

From event viewr i got this:
Faulting application gta_sa.exe, version 0.0.0.0, time stamp 0x4270f18a, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 6.0.6000.16386, time stamp 0x4549bdc9, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0003b507, process id 0x684, application start time 0x01c8682b886ff9b2.

Is the problem something wrong with vista? and wat should i do? any help is appreciated.

Marv
(p.s. the game crashes more when i use sa-mp (multiplayer) mod, than in single player mode)
 

A:Solved: Game Crashing

"GTA:SA:MP: Windows - Application Error : The instruction at 0x77f17553 referenced memory at 0x000000ff. The memory could not be read."

I have a crashing problem. I recently purchased Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2. So far I've gotten about 10 minutes of gameplay after like 50 attempts of tryin' to play the game. For some reason I can't figure out why the game will just crash a blue screen flashes for like a split second and the computer automatically restarts. No warning at all... just kaput it crashes. Very annoying. I've had a recent problem as well... I had my computer fixed by a friend, but he's no longer in town. It worked for about 2 hours... then my bro did something in msconfig and totally screwed something up. So... i couldn't recover from that so I attempted to format and reinstall myself. Somehow I succesfully did this. ... But... same ol' problem... still crashing. I've tried downloading the lastest drivers for the sound card, (Creative Audigy Gamer) and video card drivers ( GeForce 3 Ti 500)... everythings running on a 1.2 AMD 60GB HD... and Win XP... everything worked well before the reinstall... except for the game problem of Need for Speed... I didn't have it before my friend helped me out with it... If anyone has ANY suggestions I'm willing to try any of them!!! Thank ya

Hi everyone. Fairly new laptop (less than 6 months) which recently has been crashing in a really odd way when doing playing Dota 2. No BSOD or anything, just straight shuts down. What usually happens is I start up the game, get into gameplay (past title screen loading screen etc.), get 25-30 minutes into game and it crashes.
 
The strange thing is this only happens under a few conditions. The battery setting has to be set to high performance and the charger has to be plugged in. The crashes never happen when the machine is running on battery alone.
 
laptop is a Toshiba Satellite s50t-B running windows 10
 
Specs
i7 4510U cpu
8GB ram
AMD Radeon R7 M260
 
Really appreciate any help at all. Thanks everyone.

processor intel core i7-4900mq cpu 2.80ghz
32gb ram

any help will be highly appreciated

I just downloaded/installed CS Source, whenever I open up the game it freezes on the loading screen then I get the following error - The instruction at "0x106ae32c" referenced memory at "0x0e42a1a0". The memory could not be "read". Click OK to terminate the program.

I have tried
-Reinstalling CSS and HL2

I have
-ONE 2Gig stick of ram
-Latest sound and video card drivers
-Latest DirectX

I tested my computer and it passes the minimum and recommended requirements for the game with flying colors. I run CS 1.6 just fine.

I've read all help forums about this problem and it seems as though none of them provide the answer to my problem, any help is greatly appreciated.

Recently my pc has started acting up, so i decided to wipe it clean.
After reinstalling Windows 7 pro 64, i updated all my drivers and reinstalled my games. However, after a minute or two in game, in either game, it will crash to my desktop. Niether program prompts a crash report. Both crash in identical ways. I use AVG Free, and Windows Firewall, i have added exceptions for both.

My graphics card is HD4770, and im running catalyst 11.2
The games im playing are not that intense, Rappelz a MMO and League of Legends an RTS.

I have made no changes to any of my hardware, and i have run several driver detection programs to ensure i didnt miss anything.

Win7 says i have DX11 installed, and my card only supports 10.1 (however, i was able to play like this before, so i assume its backwards compatable).What i have tryed, is to download directx from microsoft but only to get an error on install. "Check to make sure cryptographic services are running" and i did, and they are.

any ideas?

Okay, so I've googled this problem and have no idea what the problem is:

So my game (Guild Wars) constantly crashes to desktop now, and I haven't done anything to the software/hardware/anything whatsoever between the time it was working fine and from when it began crashing. Whenever I go off for the night and come on the next day it lets me play the game for an hour or two, then it crashes. Once it crashes and I try to open the game again it only lets me stay on for a few minutes at a time. I've rebooted in between crashes; it doesn't let me stay on for more than a few minutes after the first crash anyway. I go to sleep or give it hours of time and then I get an hour or so of gameplay again (everything starts all over). I've put a fan next to my graphics card in my open computer but it hasn't helped.
My card is an Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT and my computer has 1 GB of RAM.

If anyone can offer help here I would really appreciate it, thanks!
 

A:Game crashing to desktop...

It certainly sounds as if it's an overheating issue. It may be your CPU, RAM or hard disk drives as well as your graphics card. Check that all your cables are secure and plugged in tight. Also put and reset your RAM and PCI cards as well to be sure nothing has vibrated lose.

My game clients keep crashing...

Okay for example, I start up lets say Oblivion I continue my campaign okay it loads and then right as it finishes it crashes. This is the same thing for everything... I start up Starcraft 2 and I join the match but as soon as it finishes downloading it crashes. I use Comodo Virus Protector, I just downloaded Trojan Remover. I have no idea what to do I'm about to reformat but I wanted to check over here first if I could get anything useful. I ran multiple scans, reinstalled games. I just don't know what to do.

I'm using windows vista 32bit

With an intuitive interface that makes it easy to switch between gaming mode and normal mode, Game Booster is a simple but powerful program.Game Booster's interface is basic, with a list of 24 noncritical processes that can be shut down during gaming.

Hi everyone. I have a problem concerning a BSOD when any game (or 3D application) starts up, where a few seconds after I start the game/application, windows shuts down and a BSOD displays, stating there is a

'page_fault_in_nonpaged_area'

which results in my computer being restarted after a count reaches 100 for deleting physical memory.

I have recently made some major upgrades, which is when the problem started. I installed a new mobo, video card (as old mobo had onboard video and no PCI-e slots), and a gig of RAM.
Since the problem I have bought a new PSU and another gig of RAM to replace the other stick I bought to check if it was faulty.

My Specs (since upgrade)
Intel Pentium 4 3Ghz
Windows XP Home SP2
Kingston DDR2 2GB 800Mhz
Asus EN8800GT
Gigabyte P31-DS3L
Antec NeoPower 550W PSU
Western Digital IDE 160GB 7200RPM HDD

Nothing is overclocked.
I didn't reformat after I installed all the new parts, rather removed all the old drivers beforehand and installed the new ones after.

What I've tried?
Ruled out PSU and RAM problems. Thats...about it

Another note:
Interestingly, games DO work (at least Steam ones) when I set them to launch windowed and at 800 x 600 resolution. Anything higher results in the aforementioned BSOD.

Next thing I'm considering is to reformat, it's been suggested by a few people but not by others...

No other crashes experienced, everything's been scanned for viruses and the such, and when playing games in the wi... Read more
