TDM Crash to Desktop every time

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I noticed in the mission list my mission didn't have my author name in it, so I edited the darkmod.txt file in my mission folder

and added it, and now the game crashes to desktop every single time. I figured corrupt save file, so deleted that, no help.

I redownloaded my mission from the forum, and still it crashes.

 

Anyone know why? How do I fix it?

 

Thanks

At what point does it crash to desktop? Before entering the main menu, when starting to load an FM (is it just a specific FM or all FMs?), when finished loading? Which version of TDM are you running?

It's before it gets to the main menu. You never even see it. It crashes during the grey screen.

Fixed: It was wrong format of Author in darkmod.txt in my fm I think. I deleted it and it sorted it.

I had this same problem for a long time. Every mission I tried crashed to desktop about halfway through loading. FYI My box is a win 7 32 bit ultimate with geforce 730 2gig and 8 gigs ram with an ASUS P8p67- LE mobo. It worked really well before TDM 2.07, but not after. The problem is memory Allocation. Its a malloc failure (268435456)- at least im my case. None of the usual fixes to the config file worked nor did anything else.  After considerable research and study of the problem i found that In win 7 32bit you can't get past about 3.9gig limit even if you have 8gigs of ram. I upgraded my box to win 7 64 bit ultimate clean install (dual boot so all the old stuff i had is still available) and now the malloc error is gone and TDM runs perfect. It just needed a 64 bit system to be able to allocate properly. I hope this helps others with this vexing problem. TDM is too good to miss.
