Game hang with SF Marine career

Recommended Posts

I was trying out the SF marine career, and found this problem:

If you start a roam as a SF Marine, the default asset is a shuttle craft.If that craft is destroyed the game will hang. Freeze. It does not crash to desktop.Have to bring up the task manager to stop the process.

Tried MP and the same thing happens.

Sequence of events:

Start new roam as SF marine.Hit <contrl><alt><E>.

Say 'yes'.

Game hangs. No explosion graphics.

I can confirm that the above steps in sp produce a game hang on my machine as well.

I also tried exiting the shuttle (Alt E) and shooting it to destruction with my sabre rifle. I heard the explosion noise, but the game hung again with no explosion animation.

Hmmm, I tried it and only got killed when the shuttle went kaboom.

Looks like the problem might be with that AC 97 integrated sound card.

Hey Ben,

Is your CPU really running at 2200 Ghz?

I'll run some more stringent tests this weekend to see what I can come up with. Given that this [stand-alone] career is the least used and is largely useless, its not top priority. So don't expect a fix anytime soon.

You folks having this problem may want to try this with a normal CMDR career.

  1. SNG with CMDR career
  2. Transfer AE to SC1
  3. Launch SC1. Turn A/P on and set to halt
  4. Exit SC1 in fp mode. This switches your AE from CMDR to SFM.
  5. Destroy SC1 using your Sabre weaponry

See if the game also crashes in that instance. It probably won't, since the handling is different; but you never know.

nope, no crashes there, shuttle is destroyed as normal.

I went on to destroy my CC with my sabre and there were no problems there either (ending the game after showing the explosion as it should)

OK great. Thanks Ben. You're always on the ball with stuff like this. Your help over the years is greatly appreciated.
