Crashing at starting

i just downloaded the game today… and it keep crashing at laun, music of startig can be heard for 1 sec (no ui or game seen exept the icon) and then it close. no error message

What OS are you running, and what are your system specs?

Once I know your OS, I’ll tell you where to find your log files, which may be able to tell us what’s not working for you!

16gb ram
nvidia 1070
windows 10

That should be plenty to run the game (it’s better than my main development PC!)

Okay, find the game log here:

C:\Users\<AccountName>\AppData\Roaming\VectorStorm\MMORPG Tycoon 2\log.txt

Note that the ‘AppData’ folder might be automatically hidden by Windows. If so, you might need to type that part into the address bar, rather than click on an icon to get into the folder.

Anyhow, if you can post that log file then hopefully it’ll have some useful information about what’s gone wrong! You can either post it here or send it to me as a private message. :slight_smile:

Okay, from the log it looks like the game is hitting a crash, and it’s happening before the crash reporter can handle it.

Inside the same directory that held the log.txt file, there should be a text file: “crashreports/crash.rpt”. Can you show the contents of that file? (If it’s empty or missing, which based upon where this problem is occurring I’m guessing it might be, there’d be another copy of it inside the game’s steam installation directory (“Browse Local Files” button within the game properties in Steam, to get there), saved in there as “MT2.RPT”; if you can’t get at crash.rpt, give me the MT2.RPT file instead. :smiley:

This should give us our best bet at catching whatever the problem is!

Thanks for posting that! Based on that crash report, it looks like it’s crashing inside your graphics driver. Is your driver relatively up to date?

Also, worth testing our ‘test’ branch on Steam, which has one rendering related fix in it which has helped a couple folks (although mostly Mac users)… I don’t especially expect that to fix this issue, but it’s worth trying just in case!

my graphic driver is up to date and still crashing

same problem with test

Hm… anything unusual about your video setup? Like… I dunno. Multiple monitors? Weird refresh rates on the monitors? Are you on a laptop with an external screen attached? None of those should be problems, but… clearly something is going wrong, and the crash log isn’t giving me enough information to guess what that something is… so… just trying to figure out what might be different about your setup than other people, which is leading to this crash.

i have 2 monitors , tried to unplug 1 didnt change anything so ig ot no idea , its the first game that happen to me

Oh! Something to try:

Try going into that same directory again and editing the vectorstorm.prefs file and find these lines:

Fullscreen 1
FullscreenWindow 1

Change them to:

Fullscreen 0
FullscreenWindow 0

That’ll switch the game to open in a regular window instead of trying to go fullscreen. You can also change the WindowResolutionX and WindowResolutionY lines, if you like, to specify the size you want the window to be (though you can resize it later, while the game is running). I wonder if it’ll be happier running in a window than in a fullscreen mode.

in the appdata roaming folder of the game?

Yes, in that same directory; AppData/Roaming/VectorStorm/MMORPG Tycoon 2/

well there is a problem Capture

lol, okay, right, it’s crashed before it has written out the preferences file! Hold on and I’ll send you one.

@trevor ! good and bad news ! the problem come froms steam download look like something going bad when (players like me download the files) I downloaded a crack and had directly no problem launching it. tried to had some files from the crack to steam version . nothing worked still so something from steam is making it go wrong (yes Imade another account cause I had 11 hours wait x)

Good to know! Will have a bit more of a think about things!

still sck I need to use a crack atm xD but yhea hope it can help you find whats going on
