Crashes
Ive just started playing the misery 2.1 but ingame it seems to freeze quite a lot and then it crashes only way to end the game is task manager and it says that xray engine as stopped working.

Any one have any clue wats going on or is the game going to be like this all the time.

My PC specs are high spec so i dont think its that its something to do with the engine i think or the mod

Actuly the error info from the log is what is needed, like this example below...


FATAL ERROR

[error]Expression : fatal error
[error]Function : CInifile::r_section
[error]File : E:\stalker\sources\trunk\xrCore\Xr_ini.cpp
[error]Line : 342
[error]Description : <no expression>
[error]Arguments : Can't open section 'wpn_pm'


This example shows that this crash was by this ltx file that I renamed to make this example crash. It can't find it, so it stopped and gave a reason why. This is the part that I or anyone else that understands the system would need to see.

If you only have this to show for...

stack trace:

Then its a memory dump.

This is at the very bottom of your crash log txt. Pending on your system, after a bug crash, you can get away with just pasteing in note pad off the back after. So if it just crash, now is the time to get it. Because it writes a new log everytime you start the game.

where can find this log
warcatt00 May 5, 2014 @ 4:24pm 
in xp its shared documents\ s.t.a.l.k.e.r. -call of pripyat\logs\xray_stalker.log
or if it just crashed, you can pull up note pad and just click on paste and it will. Dose for me, I do not even look at the log or report anymore.

Most likley the mod. I just downloaded MISERY 1.0 and it stated it was run on a rig with 4gigs of ram, So I had to get 4 gigs from my other PC's because this one and them run on 2gigs. Now that I have the 4 gigs, Misery is playing fine, even had to disable the bump mapping to get a better fsp.

My card is 512. See I do not have big money to get a new system for all this fancey stuff, know what I am saying. So when I dissabled bump mapping in the game, it became less lagging, seems the atmosfear mod addon in the game is very demanding, too demanding. Bump Mapping addes a extra detail of texture so the object looks less 2-d flat.
