# 1 Patch Installer Crash/BS
01-15-2010, 08:40 PM
My client had been working fine until the extended downtime Wednesday night.Since then my pc bluescreens as soon as the downloader starts downloading the patch.Sometimes it has downloaded as much as 10mb,but usually it crashes far earlier than that..like around 1100kbs.

I am running a Nvidia Geforce8600 GTS
Made by Nividia
Chiptype: Geforece 8600 GTS
Windows XP professional.

I have the latest video drivers.
Ive cleaned up my hard drive
Wiped the game,and reinstalled.
I defraged

I would do a windows reinstall,but disc is currently MIA

I searched,and found a lot of crash issues,but havent seen this particular one

Would really like to get back to the game.Appreciate any and all advice.

No,I havent contacted support yet.I'm sure they are hella busy,and thought I'd try and resolve my issue in the forums first.

My tech level is fair.

Roll back your graphics drivers to 190.62 and reinstall the game.

I found out how to beat th 10 gig patch or if your patcher keeps crashing on launch. I have windows 7 so I dont know if this will work for other versions of windows.

I took the folder located at: C:\Users\Public\Games\Cryptic Studioss and I copied it to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Cryptic Studios
I overwrote EVERYTHING. Then I launched the updater and it downloaded 1 little file and now I can play! YAY!

Yeah I dont have that path...I think partly because of our operating software differences,and partly because I downloaded from Steam
