Settings shouldn't matter for that. When it crashes, do you get an exception error or does it just drop, and does it happen in the base game?

Actually, I'm getting two crashes. The exception error I've since resolved by just not alt+tabbing. Slightly inconvenient but I can live with that. The other one is far more frustrating for two reasons. First and foremost is it just crashes. This will occur just as a battle (land or space). Whenever I hit the start battle button, game just drops. The second issue though and probably more odd, is that it deletes the last save. Generally speaking this is an autosave as it's right before a battle. But I have seen on a rare occassion when just saving the game it will delete that after crash.

And no problems running the vanilla game.

Try using Large Address Aware on the exe:

It's typically used for Sins, but it can help with a lot of older games.

Yeah, I tried that, but got an error 51 code which I'm not quite sure why that would be as my understanding is that error code occurs because it CANT use more than 2GB or RAM which that's what LAA is supposed to fix. Regardless, turns out it was an exception error that I was getting (I got it confused with a Direct 3D one that I managed to solve on my own).But is there something else I should be doing to stomp out that exception error? I forgot to mention that along with crashing upon trying to load the battle map, the other time is during an orbital strike. After reading the error report, I made sure the game was to be run as administrator.

Edit: Thought I'd let you know that after a little research, that doesn't work on steam versions of the game. Ultimately, I'll just have to buy the game on GOG whenever it goes on sale as it seems to of been tweaked to work with modern systems. But in the meantime any help is certainly appreciated. I looked at the other mods but none do what this one does and satisfies that itch just better.

Update: Steam doesn't like me messing with those executables. It would just crash the moment I tried opening it with administrator mode active. Ended up taking it off there to prevent it from occurring again. Still stuck with those pesky crashes though that at this point, not sure how to deal with it. I can provide the report if it would help you guys bug squash. But for now, I can be diligent with my saves and just play the game. The one thing I am puzzled and would like to hear your input on because I've never seen it before, is why does the game delete my last save when it crashes?

Does it happen every single time, or are there some battles or OBs where it doesn't? You said every other battle at first, but this is weird, so the more specific information you can give, the better.

Well, I can tell you one spot I can get it crash every time. If I'm in the middle of a game and I tried to load a separate save, the game will crash and delete said save. And it'll also crash if I try to save over an existing save. However, were I to exit out to the main menu and load the game, then everything's fine and it doesn't crash. Same is true by just creating a new save. I did go and make the folder that holds the save not "read-only" and that seems to of resolved the crashes when loading into a random space/land battle map. Unfortunately, I couldn't give you a pattern on that one because if there was one, I didn't see it.

Edit: If I had to guess, it's probably something to do with the Auto-Save mechanic. Wouldn't be the first game Auto-Save messes with the game after all.

My game crashes on startup, Stormtrooper picture comes up then crashes to desktop. Regular Empire at War runs fine, I also am able to run the ACM2.4 mod without any problems. I have installed the ram update, I just did a fresh install of the retail gold pack, I looked in the mod directory as well as the FOC main directory for logfiles, but I didn't find any. One other thing: does this mod work on 32 bit machines? because my computer is a 32bit... or maybe the graphics aren't powerful enough, after all it's really not a great computer. And are there specific operating systems this has to be run on? Because I have a dual xp/win 7 installation, and I'm trying this in the xp environment. I'll be grateful for any help with this.

Hey my mod doesn't load at all. I followed the instructions and when I click the launcher it just brings me to the old forces of corruption game. What should I do to fix this?

Question that you might be able to help with. Had everything running well(yodel, icw, RAW, clone wars) at one point, but somewhere along the way messed with some files and screwed it up. Uninstalled everything. Reinstalled everything.Now FoC works, just the vanilla game. At first it had the exception error, but when the ram fix was installed and the game is ran in windows xp(service pack three) and only that it starts and plays. Now, the icw mod has the exception error and won’t start. The vanilla game still plays tho. Haven’t tried any other mods but can you or someone help? Running out of ideas to fix it back to how it was on my computer

Update to this. When it’s run by administrator, the original runs on windows 7.
Still can’t get imperial civil war to run tho. Always pops up with an exception erotor

it been a while an i haven't heard back, so ill try again. Any suggestions? i took time off of trying to fix it because of finals, christmas, and battlefront came out, but now im back to getting these games to run again. I have the normal forces of corruption (disk) running again, so its a start. Im curruntly downloading mods for Republic at war and thrawns revenge, the two i play, but im waiting to hear of any suggestions, tips, or fixes to make sure they run smoothly.
thanks

I'd suggest just trying it first to see if any of it works, or if it's just specific mods which don't launch.

ok so i got both mods to work and run. the issue i have got into now is the imaging is a little off. black lines sort of flash across my screen as a play, its very distracting. Its almost as if the images are doubling then laying over one another. Any suggestions on how to fix that? it happened on the base game but my fix was to change the compatibility mode then when it happens in game i click both mouse buttons at the same time, but im not sure how to change that on this one since i cant find it under properties.

Anything related to properties would be in the same place for the mod as for the base game. Sounds like a potential graphics card issue, though.

Hi there

I'm having an issue getting the game to load. I own the retail versions of EaW and FoC. I've installed them both today and downloaded the mod.

I've got the .bat file out of my mods folder and into my normal FoC folder. I click on it, FoC tries to load but then seems to freeze very early on and then crashes. I get a message about saying EaW/FoC has stopped working. I sometimes get an option to try and resolve that issue but it doesn't work.

*If* I run FoC off the EAWXLauncher or the desktop shortcut it runs fine.

I'm running windows 7 on my PC.

Any thoughts/ suggestions?

Ok, on the plus side I just needed the old RAM update (gotta love old games) and that fixed the first issue.

Now I get the game to start and it gives me the stormtrooper with shoulder image but freezes and won't run further from there.

The mod is several times the size of the base game due to all the extra content we've squeezed in.  Start-up has correspondingly longer loading times.  Try giving it a few more minutes on the load screen.  If it isn't properly crashing on you that probably just means it's still collating files.

I have the Gold Pack retail version.
I have done the RAM FIX
Though I do not have a computer brain so I can't tell what is going on, just that every time I launch ICW2.1 I get Pop-up saying Execption _logfile.txt and except.txt have had a problem and I try to debug but it just stops the program and shuts it down. I have FOC running in compatibility with Win. Vista, but I don't think the .bat file can be changed :P

I have heard some people scour the XMLs for 'suspicious' files but since I'm not endowed in the computer coding knowlegde .. I'd do more harm that good just poking in an XML Please help!
