still freezing, even with 1.2 fix

there have been a few threads about this; seemligly at random, soldat will lock up the pc and i'll have to turn the power off. ctrl-alt-del doesn't work, nothing.

i thought the 1.2fix addressed this, but it's still happening.. does the server need to be running the fix as well? is anyone else still having this problem?

it's REALLY annoying..

Yeah, I've been getting it. I can't even install the damned thing. I don't know what to do.

i think it need to be server version 2.09.

Though, you may not have the decompression failed porblem, i have similar problem sometimes accees vialation window appears outside of the screen.

i get this problem too .. its more then annoying.
the game just freezes during a match and takes about 3 minutes to make the comp close soldat and go back to normal, and it happened to me with the fix installed.

with the fix i never had a complete freeze yet - occasional it freezes up to 5 seconds but then soldat is back to normal.

April 20, 2004, 4:25 pm
so maybe it's a Win98(SE) problem...if some1 with WinXP is gettin' these freezes too plz post! or maybe it's a hardware problem...what about posting your sys specs?!

AMD Athlon XP 2000+
MSI nVidia GeForce FX 5950Ultra(Forceware 52.16[with the newest Driver i can't even start soldat...])
Creative Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS(i had these freezes with my old soundcard too, so i don't think it's coz of my soundcard...)

i'm running xp so i don't think it's specific to win98.

HP, format your computer! win 98SE does not have any problem with soldat, it rarely freezes, but just wait a minute and you can play again.

April 24, 2004, 8:56 pm
