Author Topic: Crash upon resolution switch in CH!!

posted 04-05-2000 11:57 PM       Edit/Delete Post   Reply With Quote
Hello, I can't seem to switch resolutions beyond 640x480 in CH. When I change the resolution setting and hit accept, I get a CTD. My specs are as follows:

Celeron 500, 256mb
Guillemot Xentor 32 Ultra TNT2
Nvidia 5.13 drivers

The snipped contents of my crash.log are:

Crash details:

Location: 5667145d
Reason: Access violation
Tried to read from memory location: 0xffffffff

Register dump:
EAX: 0x00000000
EBX: 0x00000008
ECX: 0x10000000
EDX: 0x8d8737e0
EDI: 0x00000000
ESI: 0x8e4a5080
EBP: 0x015def70
ESP: 0x015def44
EIP: 0x5667145d

Heh, might be a NULL pointer problem?

5.08 and 5.13 are BETA drivers and I have found them to be incredibly unstable. Nvidia is shooting itself in the foot by leaking these lame a$$ drivers. Use the l8test ones on Nvidia's site to ensure proper performance or alternatively the Xentor's l8test driver. Beta drivers are exactly that, BETA.


PS - 3.68 is The best unless you are trying to play NFS 5 (Need for Speed) in which case you will need 3.77 which is on the NFS disk. 5.xx caused me trouble in C/H and TA to name a few.
