Crashing on start-up
I installed SR2 today, and have been trying to get it to run, but before it can finish loading, it crashes "sr2_pc.exe has stopped working"

I'm having the same problem...any word yet?
Vedrit Oct 7, 2012 @ 10:27pm 
I tried a couple things. Alt-tab spam and putting -window in. Did them at the same time, one of them worked

Didn't work for me.
Did a bit of research.
Errorcode 0xc0000005 . I have win 7 64bit. Looks like SR2 has a problem with the 64Bit version of win7 . I only bought it because it was darn cheap and Every game running on Vista SHOULD run on Win7.
So if you have Win7 64bit DO NOT BUY IT.
Even compatibility-mode screws up.

I bought this game today and it crashes at start up. I downloaded it from some pirate site and that one works. How comes the cracked one works but the legit one i paid for doesn't?

It's not the fault of windows 7 64bit, because the cracked one works for me on 64bit

I am really mad now, I paid for that game to support the developers and now it doesn't works.

same... more and more often dear Steam!
After start black screen for 2-3 seconds and than "program stop working" error message.

I'm on Windows 7 64-bit aswell, buut it does seem to have many issues (Possible memory leaks once the game starts running)
Oh, in my work-around, I said alt+tabbing, when I was using alt+enter

I fixed it for me. I downloaded an uncut patch and that one fixed the game for me, now I can start and play. I have just one more buy, I cannot change the resolution, i have to play on 1024 or something like that.

Anyway, if you guys managed to fix it you can add me as friend and we can play together.

WanderRook Oct 8, 2012 @ 3:22pm 
Yes, SR2_pc working, by Steam not. Resulution problem too... Crashing likee berofe when I want to change resolution.
Vedrit Oct 8, 2012 @ 8:15pm 
I think Steam needs to edit the launcher to force SR2 to open in window mode or desktop resolution

It's fixed for me. I bought this game in Germany and I had a cut version of this game. I had to apply a uncut patch and now my game works fine. I can play in fullscreen mode and I don't get any errors. The only problem is I cannot change my screen resolution.

Anyway, if you guys get it work on your computer then add me and we can play this together, because there are no servers now.
