Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte, The file size “on disk” can vary from disk to disk. As long as your version number is the same and that size is the same, you are ok. Now with that in mind, nothing tells us if that file is corrupt or not. Being you have said at times that you have had issues with the install, it could be ...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hy Jytte, Yes, the GOG version of COTN is nice and I like that it runs without Steam. I am going to use it exclusively when playing COTN. One of the things I do like about Steam is, they do update all their games as updates and fixes are released. I am not sure what GOG does or how they get these up...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte, Well this is what I did after buying the game from GOG. First I installed the game on a lower end, fresh installed, Windows 10 system with no other software of any kind ever loaded. I then rebooted the system before testing the game. On the launch the game start was what I would call norma...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte, I was hoping someone with the GOG version would see all these post and offer to test your issue on their Gog setup. No luck so far. I have many computers here with a fresh install of windows 10 Pro and nothing more. I have no problem buying this game from GOG. It is under ten dollars. It w...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte, I hear you. Today we have no privacy. I have never purchased a brand name computer from any outlet store. They come preinstall with all kinds of stuff I will never need. I just buy all the parts and build my own. I have not given up on your issue. Maybe one of these days the lightbulb will...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte, Good, you should have these and don’t delete them. I was afraid when you cleaned your REG of COTN that you may have removed these thinking they were connected to your COTN game. They are not. This is just another crazy thing built into Windows that most people will never use. To open this ...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte, Check one thing for me. I see you know how to check the Windows registry. I want you to see if you have these entries and if so do they have a lot of subfolders under each? Now don’t remove anything. I repeat, don’t remove anything. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\GameConfigStore HKEY_CURRENT_USE...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte,

I agree your crashes are certainly not a compatibility issue. What Pharaoh might you have upset? It is obvious he or she is located at 365-370. :lol:

I guess we should be thankful we are still able to enjoy this game. For how long is anyone’s guess

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte, This has also happened to my game a few windows 10 updates ago. Basically our game is starting to become less and less compatible with windows 10. As windows 10 keeps improving their system and its framework, it just creates these odd issues with certain older games. Trying to run these ol...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte,

Nothing in these application errors give us a clue. All they are saying is COTN crashed. We know this! On this last crash Windows did log the errors under program data, a hidden folder, but it is useless to us.

Going to have to think this one over....RjG

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

HI Jytte, The three dcom 10016 errors you got are not related to the game. This error has been a problem with windows 10 for some time now. It can be fixed but only for a period of time before it happens again. I would leave them alone at this point. Briefly explained, these errors occur when the se...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte, My test is nothing more than a test. It is just temporary. Once we figure out the issue you can configure it anyway you want. Make sure you follow my instruction to the letter. Not only do we want 1024x768x32 but you need to set graphics quality to "best performance ." Exit COTN,...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte, Are you willing to do a test? It could really help us get this solved. Edit that ini file back to non-windowed mode. Start the game, go to game settings and select 1024x768x32. Set graphics quality to "best performance." Exit COTN, restart the game and play the game and see if yo...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte, Event ID 1000 application error is a pretty generic error. It gives very little information on exactly what COTN executable does not like about your system. Now when you get the error under “system logs”, you usually can locate and fix what the system doesn’t like. Unfortunately for us we ...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte, Great...This will take some time. Back as soon as I can. If anything turns up under system, post that. When you get a crash like yours it usually happens in two places. If it records under system, then windows is having the issue. If it records under application, then the application is ha...

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte,

That is crazy. I have no clue right now. Are you under an "administrator account" or a "user account?" How did you computer guy config you?

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte,

No you can't turn that off. Sort by Date and Time and locate that time. Make sure you are under windows logs, system. If you do not have an error there then look under application for the time it took place.

Re: CotN keeps crashing NOT solved

Hi Jytte,

That will work. Get your crash and then copy that info using your method. Make sure anything with a plus is open before you copy. Waiting.

Thanks.... RjG
