PostSubject: [SOLVED] Crashes making the game unplayable   Thu Feb 09, 2017 6:28 am

It pains me to post about this as it seems to have been addressed before, however the game crashing is literally making the game unplayable. Shortly after I begin a game, the program will crash. I've noticed that in the C. Campaign it happens before the dialogue even comes up, it used to display the dialogue with no issue and now the game doesn't even bother.

Another issue is that it seems attacks that use projectiles cause the game to crash as well. I have tried uninstalling the game and the deleting the game folder in the my documents area. I have also set the game to compatibility mode for Windows XP service pack 2 or 3 and run it as admin. I've tried following the instructions on How to run WBC on modern systems

I would greatly appreciate any help as the content in 8.7 looks fantastic and I am loving the new "Sinister Male" voice!

*apparently casting a spell crashes the game as well. "Summon Zombie"
*Forgot to mention I'm running Windows 10

The game shouldn't crash, looks like a particular local issue.

Are you running the game in Windowed mode?

I am running the game using the windowed setting from within the game
*Just tried running in fullscreen and it still crashed


Is it perhaps something in the registry? I had a previous version installed so something lingering could be causing issues.

* I found something in the startup logs!

Windowed mode indeed causes frequent crashes, so try to refrain from using that. Judging by the log file, looks like some bitmaps are not being loaded - perhaps redownloading and reinstalling will fix this.

So I deleted all of the protectors data from my comp (Main Directory, My Documents, Registry) and I installed the build of the game from the torrent hosted on the pirate bay and I've been able to play without the game instantly crashing! Perhaps the build hosted on ModDB was causing issues on my comp, but I'm happy to be able to play again! Thanks for the help!
