Constant crashes on Hot Stuff

Recommended Posts

Hello RRU

 

After many years of unsuccesfully wanting this game to run, i finally succeded... Mostly. After purchasing a new pc i desided to try to get this game to run, and this time i could. I have played throgh most of the campaing except for the three last levels. Here i unfortunantly have constant chrashes on the level Hot Stuff. I have tried to complete the level 5 times now, and in the first 10 mins or so, it always seems to work fine. i play the level as you are intendet to do in the start, but suddenly it chrashes every time. I have tried to make sense of why it does this and tried to figure out what might have caused the crash, but i cant come up with a common denominator. 

 

I the other level ''back to basics'' i also had the same problem. But i have only tried this level once, so i might just have gotten unlucky. 

 

As far as mods are concerned, i have cafeteria, the sonic blaster fix, Aiden's improvements pack. Efter my third attempt i wanted to try something different, so i also installed baz's mod, but this had no change in the chrashes.

 

So i am asking if any of you have any idea what might cause the chrashes or maybe how to fix it.

 

I never got ti complete the game as i played it when i was very little, so i am really hoping for som help so i can finnaly complete it :)

 

Thanks for your time :)

Hello, welcome back to RRU! :)

First of all, installing Baz's Mod is a bit of a bad idea for trying to fix crashes xD You'll want to uninstall it, but IIRC uninstalling it is a bit fiddly - you may need to nuke your LRR installation and redo it from start. (Unless you made backups! Backups are always good things).

Crash-wise, installing Community Edition (and the also needed CE:Core patch) may help. Some people report CE gives more crashes - some people report less. Unfortunately there's not a lot you can do to get LRR "not to crash." :PYou can toy around with additional command line parameters and various compatibility settings on the exe, but that can be tiring and time-consuming to go through. Generally XP SP2 compat - or no compat at all - with admin parameters - or not - is usually the most helpful.

 

The issue could possibly be related to my Improvements Pack, but that seems unlikely. I didn't play through every single level and don't think I touched anything weird in Hot Stuff...

 

... It won't allow you to not crash, but you can skip the level using the command line parameter -testlevels and play the last level. 

 

I also couldn't finish this post without mentioning Manic Miners, which I've only ever had crash once over two years and that was because I was doing something blatantly illegal with the scripting system :P

Thanks very much for the help! After a fresh install i managed to beat the rest of the game (almost) without chrashes! I was not able to run the CE version. The newest version of it would crash my game instantly, and if i downloaded an older version the game would run for somthing like 2 minutes before crashing. But no matter. i was finnally able to beat the game after so many years and for that i thank you and the rest of this amazing community, for making it possible.
