Help! Game Crashes! Won't Play.
« on: May 30, 2011, 07:54:40 pm »
I am running Machines with a Vista and I get to the Reaper loading scene and the load bar. The loading bar gets near the end and then nothing. It then says,

"Application error:
The instruction at 004e2d44 referenced memory at 00000000
The memory could not be read from

Click on ok to terminate the application
[OK]

                               Any ideas?

Right-click Machines.exe -> Properties -> Compatibility tab -> Win XP.
Remember when being a Wrath Reaper was badass? Those were the days. . .

Wow... That's a new one...

Wheren't you downloading Machines through the MDS? I suggest you wait for that one to complete, apply all the patches and fixes and try again =) Of course, uninstall this version, first.

Vista is trying to kill Machines. I hope that the new Windows 8 does not do the same...

I do believe Machines worked fine on my Vista (after applying the necessary patches and all that, of course). Got Win 7 now. Noooo problems on it.

Anyways, hope you get it solved ;)

I think it is because my demo's profiler.dat file is only 37 bytes. Do you have the demo installed? If so, could you tell me how large your profiler.dat file is.

Can't find no 'profiler.dat'... Where's it located?

It is in the demo's main file where the links to game, saves, sounds, and other drivers are located.
