Absolute HD crashing
(you might remember me from a discussion bellow about the same mod) I've installed the absolute HD mod a few days ago I got it to run at a decent framerate but after the portall lets hell loose and I go down the elevator to mars city for some reason the game crashes and the text box comes up that says:
Doom 3 has stoped working
I don't know why it does this but when the doors open the game just crashes. I'm actual kind of angry about this because I wanted to play the rest of the game with the amazing graphics. Does any one have the same experiences or have a solution to this?

p.s. I did run it as administrator too

post your ingame and sikkmod options, maybe someone can help after that
not everythig is working well with sikkmod even if the option is there, you can have visual glitches/fps drop no mattter what pc you have

delete glprogs folder inside hd mod
this disables POM, and prevent visual glitch textures with terrain
fps is 63 all the time you can use 8x AA, and everything maxed out now
with POM i have fps issues

if you still have problems after deleting that folder something else is wrong but not the mod itelf

and there is an other way around suing POM: disable aniso filtering in config file= no fps issues
but terrain texture is still glitchy, but atleast you have pom and 63 fps
maybe game is buggy, zombie revive doesnt work for me:(
what is the level name where you got crash?

(I didn't play this game in awile so,) I think its the 2nd mission mars city. (I have a shotgun and a pistol, so I'm past the part where the portal just opens)

the security man level?(did you tried to play with old save or or did started a new one in the mod?)
when he gives you the pistol and he does radio check?
if so try enable/disable EAX, if you even have creative card
i have seen a guy on moddb have this issue of crash, but i dont have it so i cant rly help

no, not the radio test. (I also saw that guy), just the elevator up to mars city, after hell was litterally let loose.

Hey buddy,
Did you have any luck fixing the crash when he tests the radio? I'm getting the same issue.

Cheers,
Dan

Right, my bad, I read the comment wrong.
Anyway I started a new game and got past that section no problems - not sure what was going on there.
Cheers for the reply though.

Hey JW,
All I did was start a new game, nothing else. Not sure what was causing the problem but that fixed it.

Cheers,

Anyone have an issue with the game (with Absolute HD) crashing when coming up the elevator at the start of Mars City Revisited (after Mars City Underground). Elevator goes up, no problems, doors start to open, then crash.
