  • PR Issues With New Ram

    Hey,

    These are my specs:
    Intel Core i5 750 @ 2.67GHz, 2.67GHz
    8.00 GB RAM DDR3 (CORSAIR XMS 3)
    N260GTX (896MB DDR3)
    X-Raider 7.1


    OK, so here's the problem, i had the same specs except it was 4gb of ram, same type of ram. I added the extra 4 GB and turned on my PC loaded PR and it loads the game, same settings, i am able to log on and see the server, but as soon as i click to load a map, it crashes to desktop. I have tried going back 4GB, and deleting the profile settings.

    Thanks

    ok i ran the memtest, the new ram is fine, the older sticks failed, the 4gb that failed were the sticks that i was using to play before, and with those sticks removed PR still fails

      Run PR in windowed mode as it will give you an error instead of just crashing straight to the desktop.

      To run in windowed mode edit your shortcut bath to include +fullscreen 0 +szx XXX +sxy XXX where szx is your adjusted width and sxy adjusted height to be about 3/4 to 1/2 your original size so all your links fit on your screen. It will be proportionate to your desktop size.

      So for example when the short cut ends with ..\mods\pr.exe"
      ...\mods\pr.exe" +fullscreen 0 +szx 800 +szy 600

      Did you make sure to leave the " on the shortcut before adding the extra commands? I left that out on the example.

        yeah, it didn't take, said that there file extension did not exist,

        everything else seems to be working fine, no comp problems, it appears that BF2 engine is the only thing affected

          Make sure you modified the shortcut like the example below:

            Man I'm having typo city here!

            \mods\pr.exe" +fullscreen 0 +szx 800 +szy 600 is the correct extenion. (szy noot sxy). you would still get a window with the wrong commands, it would just be full size. The important part is the +fullscreen 0 being one space after the quotes with a space betwee +fullscreen and the zero.

                Do you mean it ran fine in windowed mode until you started a map, then the window closed with no error message?

                    What OS are you using? XP, Vista, Windows 7
                    How big is your page file?

                          Have you tried running PR, PB and all associated proceses as administrator and in compatibility mode for WinXP ?
