Getting old Windows games working.

Eurofighter Typhoon crashes while mission...

Postby billy336 » 2016-7-28 @ 14:25

Hi everyone!

i asked myself if I could get any help with my problem here.

I installed Eurofighter Typhoon lately (game from Rage/DID in 2001) on my Windows 10 computer.
I have the original CD-Version (i bought at ebay)

Installation worked. I installed the 2.1 patch from pathes-scrolls.de and the game startet without intro though but at least it seemed to work. (this patch file seems to be somthing like a nocd crack too, cos before i installed the patch i had those win10 securom problems where the game wont start even with original-CD.
I started a new game in "peacetime" since it was the first time i played this game. Gameplay worked fine even my xbox one elite controller works like a charm. Only those report videos (which appear from time to time with news about the war) seem like they are stucking. I can here the sound but its almost everytime black screen. never mind gameplay worked so far.

Now I am at day 2. There starts a mission where you have to escort some B1-Bombers from the US.
I get the mission and the "briefing" starts. After that everytime (its 07:55 pm ingame time) when the planning is about to start (at least i guess) the game crash with an Error like:

Fatal error in 3Dream
C:\Projects\Rage\typhoon.win...wproute something blabla

I wonder cos I have no such a directory or file. My game is installed in D:\games\Eurofighter Typhoon

I tested everything at my old Windows XP laptop too with my Savegame from my PC and the same happens there. Crash at 19:55 ingame... :angry:

So it cant be my PC or OS or anything.

Something is happening at this point of the game. maybe a cutscene or anything that creates an error at this point.

I tried to reload an older Savegame but after a while, everytime at this point, after the B1 Escort mission starts, it crashes at 19.55 ingame :-(

Problem is i dont wanna throw away my game and I'm not sure it works if I start a new one or crashes again after 2 days at this point.

2 questions now ;-)

1. Is there any Solution to prevent the game from crashing at this point ?
2. or does anyone have a savegame from after this b1-escort mission so i dont have to start over again or never be able to finish that game :-) I dont care about the pilots.

Something else i noticed is, that i read about a russia invasion on island and on those news videos they are talking about an invasion but my whole island is free of enemies except of some big ship convois at the far west of the map. No enemies ever invaded the island until this point of the game.

EDIT: I noticed something else: The game wont start at all without the Patch (nocd). I made a clean install on my Windows XP laptop. After I click the Desktop shortcut the CD starts to load for a few seconds, i see the "eurofighter typhoon" logo but then i return to Desktop -.-

Have you tried lookin on Steam forums? The game is sold there, and there are some discussions about how to make it work.

I'm selling some stuff!

Ok i Found out what the Problem is:
Everytime When it crashes it tries to Start a mission where at least one sector must have been occupied by Russian forces. Since for some reason there was no invasion in my campaign this mission crashes. Now I have to find out why no enemy forces are invading the island. Seems like a bug. I wonder if this bug still appears in the steam version... I may find out if it's possible somehow to edit the save game and make any sector occupied if they are not invading by themselves :-(

When stuff like this happens is usually due to very fast or multi-core CPUs. Try slowing it down or setting single cpu affinity.
