Greetings, usual CF player here.
As the title said everything, I keep crashing to desktop in the very moment when Walker about to die in Mission 11, after fleeing from the prison.
I know, I'm kinda late with it, but I was saving for a new video card, just so I can enjoy this masterpiece.
It was love on the first sight, managed to land on Buffalo after 6 hours of playing.... well yeah, in ~6 hours I managed to get to meet Orillion for the hundreth time, knowing I'm about to finish the Original Campaign, and enjoy the new missions. So, jump in the in-system jumphole, took out the cloak-detecting-satellite thing, fight our way to Alaska, landed, take off.. Oh, forgot to mention, I was messing with the graphics in the beginning, as for some kind of troubleshooting. So the fancy crossfire loading screen disappeared, changed to the original one, without any text, but blue changed to red in the loading screen. Anyway, after 5 complete reinstall mentioned everywhere (fmm, fl, cf, everything) and about 1,5 hours, managed to at least start with the first mission. Well, kinda.. since when I was in space, all the space-cutscenes are nothing but a black screen. I can do my usual stuff after the black screen finished their lines, no problem with that.. if you play fl sp for years, it's kinda get boring, since I know the whole storie's lines.. not to show off, just to mention, not seeing the cutscenes didn't ringed any bell in my mind that it could be any problem if I could play after that.
So, fleeing from Michelle, I mean Sidewinder, in formation with Walker and his crew, approaching the gate.. well, LNS phoenix was shot down, walker attempts his suicide, but the crashing eventually saved him for a brief moment.. ctrl+shift+esc, shutting down the fl process, and playing skyrim trying to forget about the hate I managed to collect while seeing that something I was waiting for years just crashed in the very end, not letting me even try out the new campaign.
This was 4 days ago.. yes, I'm trying to fix it for 4 days now, learning every single article from A to Z, actually finding something about the problem posted by other member, but couldn't remake his fix. after about 20+ complete reinstall, couple of headaches and even getting cold from the restless nights trying to fix it (jk) I'm left without hope. Tried every possible combination, from the very low-end graphics to "ultra" even trying the medium settings, messing with the lights, Juni's clothing, Trent's outfit.. nothing works.
So, here I am, my "love at first sight" became into "hopeless ex trying to mess with my life" kind of things, since I'm dedicating my very free time to fix it, without any chance to actually make it work again, and at least try out the new campaign.
I'm looking for really helpful things, like savegames past that point, not that "tried to turn it on and off again?" since I tried it countless times. Sorry for the harsh tone, or any assault words, but I'm really hopeless about this, enraged, all sort of things. Yeah, also spent 2 days downloading CF 1.9 client, since I have 20kbit/s mobile internet, or dial-up if this is the word Englishmen uses (I'm Hungarian) and can't get better one since.. since my location where I live. This isn't the problem, my sanity, my fl, and my downloaded cf client.
I'm afraid I can't provide with any reward, except few kudos, karma etc., but this fight with me against CF is like trying to brake a rock with eggs, and not vica versa.
Anything helpful is welcome here, thank you for reading this, have a wonderful day!
