I have downloaded and installed Stalker Call of Pripyat over 10 times today, I AM NOT EXAGGERATING...I have downloaded over 30gb of data today.
I download it, install it, start the game everything works fine. But as soon as I try to start it up a second time I get the "xrengine 1.6 stopped working" error, and nothing else. I have the system requirements I have direct X and VC++ Runtimes I have tried to upgrade EXE to 3gb memory header -new install- I have installed Complete mod -new install- I have installed Misery Mod -new install- I have changed Sound device from Generic Hardware to Generic Sotware -new install- I have run it as Admin Mode -new install- I have made sure compatibility mode is off -new install- I have disabled Steam Overlay -new install- I have deleted USER.ltx from base directory and from _appdata_ directory -new install- I have checked, and no user.ltx gets generated anywhere else on my computer - not in Users\Public or my current Users\Ryan folders
Every single time I want to play this game I have to delete the entire game and re download the 3 GB game files
This is completely ridiculous.
A few threads have mentioned deleting a sound driver...but never go into specifics.
My log file aends with multiple errors depending upon which "solution" I try, but most commonly:
[error]Expression : fatal error [error]Function : out_of_memory_handler [error]File : D:\prog_repository\sources\trunk\xrCore\xrDebugNew.cpp [error]Line : 336 [error]Description : <no expression> [error]Arguments : Out of memory. Memory request: 0 K
The company that made this game is out of business, so I really can't be expected to contact their customer support.
Please, please please...if you have anything to add to my plea, please do so. This is one of my favorite games of all time, yet it is completely unplayable unless I plan to play the entirety of the game in one sitting with no mods or changes to the Video configurations.
