Ignition crashes randomly

Getting old software/games running on older hardware.

Ignition crashes randomly

Postby Half-Saint » 2017-1-24 @ 06:13

Sometimes it'll work for 10 minutes and sometimes it will crash the machine in 5. What could be the problem? I remember playing this literally for hours on a weaker setup (Pentium 200).

Playing this on ASUS P5A-B, 64MB RAM, GeForce 2MX, Voodoo 2 12MB, Windows 98SE.

How about other games? Do they work fine?

Good question. I'll try a few other games when I have more time.

This game was not stable at all when it was released (i bought it in France which was named "Fun Tracks"). Developers released soon after a v6.56 patch which fixed most of the crashes.

You can get the patch from archive.org here: http://web.archive.org/web/19990302050522/http://www.uds.se/ignition/igndownload.html

The game has this issue with Voodoo 2. You'll have to download the voodoo2 patch from the same link above.

Ah! Thanks for this! I'll report back when I get around to patching the game.
