Game crash on startup

Question

As of recently, I can play ET on my laptop. However, to get into the game, I have to launch it anywhere between 1 and 100 times. It crashes almost always upon startup (as soon as the screen turns all gray to load the starting video). It then simply says, "ET has crashed. Would you like to file a report?"

 

I tried numerous compatibility combinations, played with the resolution and bit-settings. All, naturally, while launching as administrator. But to no avail.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Flible

Also, what the deuce is ET Legacy? o.o

It's a project that helps make ET run better on newer machines. http://etlegacy.com

What resolution you are trying to run?

With console, I assume you mean the in-game console. I don't get that far into the game before the crash occurs, so I cannot provide you with that.

Not sure how the print-screen will help, it literally says "ET no longer works. We're looking for a solution."

I knew I had this before. Try this...

your dutch ? nevermind you are :P

 

probeer dit even zorg sowieso dat ET als administrator draait en kijk even in taakbeheer wat er gebeurd 

overbelasting of  iets dat niet hoort te draaien

ik moet even nadenken ik heb iets soort gelijks gehad maar kan even niet opkomen waarom ook al weer

 

 

translation try to make sure ET runs as admin look in taskmanager what happens if you open overload or something running that shouldnt I had a simular error im trying to remind myself why it was again I thought it had something to do with my video card I thought I  had to update drivers

Dat ik als admin run moge duidelijk zijn lol. Task Manager geeft een enorme piek op geheugen die direct na een succesvolle launch weer daalt. Als het ooit succesvol is >.<

Every time that ET starts, it creates a file called "etconsole.log" in your etmain folder.  It might have clues to the problem at the end of the file.  It may show what ET was trying to do when it choked.

 

The next time you start ET and it crashes, rename that etconsole.log file to etCrash.log to preserve it.  Each time ET starts, it overwrites the old Log file.

 

 

BTW, you can't open that file while ET is running, but you can make a copy of it and open the copy.

I did. It's suggesting to completely remove all ET files and pathways manually and to reinstall it. I've already tried this one-size-fits-all solution ^^. I don't feel my crash is because of a file corruption or missing file.

Press Windows key+R and type eventvwr.msc.. And see if you can gather more infos linked at these ET crashes.

 

 

I put the first few lines of my etconsole.log into the spoiler.  It starts working with openGL and the graphics rendering commands.

 

Your ET might not be getting that far along before it crashes, so you had best follow Annibal's advice.

I am not sure if the program caches these lines before writing them.

 

BTW, I once had trouble with Silent mod until I removed the hunkusage.dat file and let the mod create a new one.  I could not see any corruption in it, but Silent Did Not Like It At All!

 

Did you run FA's PK3-cleaner?  I don't see how it would help, but it certainly won't hurt.  :)
