PaladinX Posted December 26, 2004 Share Posted December 26, 2004 Hi all. Im new here, so please forgive me if i ask some dumb questions, but i really need help now: I like to play Beyond Overlord with a friend over TCP/IP last weeks. Now that we played all missions (without any problems), each of us buyed Barbarossa to Berlin (german version, already patched to 1.03). Yesterday i opened a game (as always), we started mission Boriska Trainstation (or something like that...). I choosed allied troops. To this point, everything was ok. Now i wanted to place my units, do it with the T43s and then i clicked on the truck with the officer - *PLING* - CM crashed with an unhandled exception, fault in "ddraw.dll". Game only crashes when i click on this specific truck!!! Reverse control: My friend choosed allied, he can click that truck without problems. Now i found the sticky thread with this prob, seems to be a DirectX-problem. Ok i used 3 (!) different DX9-uninstaller and nearly got crazy...after hours of trying i got DX 8.1 installed, then DX 9.0b..but never again 9.0c, because Setup aborts the installation, telling me its already installed (definitely wrong!!) So this morning i reinstalled my whole WinXP pro with all drivers, etc. Then i reinstalled, Barbarossa to Berlin, choosed this Trainstation Mission, clicked on that truck and - *PLING* - game crashes and is dead. My System: Pentium 4, 3 Ghz Asus P4P800 with i865Pe Chipset (newest Drivers) Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro (Catalyst 4.12, no AA/no AF) 1024MB TwinMos DDR400, dual channeled WinXP Pro Sound Blaster Audigy Can anybody pleaaaase help me to get the game running, i really would like to play that... Any ideas? 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
