Crossfire 2.0 randomly closing, no error messages

  • Hey guys, I recently got Crossfire mod working, and even though I'm still a bit early into the campaign, I really like the mod already. It's much harder, but it's kinda fun to play. Not to mention the graphics, it just looks beautiful~

    There is one problem I can't pinpoint the culprit, though. Sometimes during any point in gameplay, the game would seem to exit fullscreen and turn into windowed mode, but with a black screen, I can still hear the soundtrack going in the background. The game isn't detected by Task Manager, but the launcher would say 'Crossfire is Running' for quite a long time before it finally realizes the game is gone.


    From several cases this happens, I don't see a pattern of when the game would crash. Sometimes during free flight, sometimes during dogfights, and sometimes when I'm simply browsing through traders inside a base. There's no error messages that appear either, and there's nothing unusual in the launcher's log so I have no idea what's causing it.

    The ONLY thing I noticed that it seem to happen more often when I'm in Bretonia space, happened several times right after I completed a mission too :frown:

    Crossfire is still playable, though. This is just a minor annoyance, but it would still help if the problem can be pinpointed and fixed~

    Thanks, I hope someone can help~


    Update: I managed to narrow down the possible cause. The crash seem to only happen when I press Esc, most often to skip docking cutscenes and the like.

  • reshade 10 is better and more options to modify to look better ifr you have a powerful rig that is

    If your opponent is of choleric temper, irritate him.

    Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant.

  • also with reshade10 you get a FPS icon so it shows what FPS your running anything over a 100FPS is orite 60FPS not so good for this game as when you in battle and everything gets hostile your FPS will take a hit .


    so make sure no vsync is on for the game will be better for you any more help just ask i get 180FPS after setting stuff correctly

  • Hello, first of all thank you for replying quickly~ I don't have much time to fully test all the given solutions, though I try to change the shader back to the original FL and test it for around 30 minutes.

    So far, it doesn't seem to crash, and some places where FPS usually drops no longer happen, like when going into a Jump gate for example. However, at the beginning, the game's loading screen would pop up during gameplay, like it would froze briefly before continuing. Is this to be expected?

  • is your ping ok?

    is your background intelligence servise off?


    try to unload your pc of heavy servises, disable what is not nesessary: programs, servises, maybe your windows searching for updates, your system can suddenly start downloading software and updates automaticaly, and it may affect on your game and your pc performance...


    also try to set graphics in the game settings to a lower mode, like texture, effects and nebula qualities, etc...


    type in cmd: %temp% (enter), then your temporary files folder will pop up, delete all you see there, (whatever you cant delete don't bother - probably there will be few files that system needs),


    run Ccleaner: clean your system, fix registry, after fixing registry if was any, scan for broken registry again,


    run Revo uninstaller, i use it for years: scan your system for junk files and delete all,


    Good luck

    Ah, sorry, I forgot to mention, I'm playing single player. I did use vanilla shader, and it turns out it still crashes, though it seems to be less often.

    The freeze happened sometimes when in the middle of a game, like when I'm chasing an enemy, the fps will suddenly drop sharply, froze a bit, before resuming. It only happens once so far though.
