90% crash
« on: October 22, 2011, 12:01:02 PM »

I am having problems with Dark Blue World build 1.1 crashing at 90% or making it to the main screen and crashing immediately.
I followed all steps in the install -- no idea what is going on.
Help please.

most likely it's actually a 95% crash, which would mean you are missing a needed SFS file somewhere.
what does your error log say?

I think I got it fixed.
I unzippped everything directly into the game (instead of copying over the unzipped files from a temp folder) overwriting everything in the install.

The game then reached the mainscreen and would crash immediately.

I went into JSMGE and applied the DBW widescreen patch.

This seems obvious to some but I, and perhaps others who had UP3 running for a while before installing Dark Blue World might miss.  My config.ini still had a widescreen aspect ratio and I did not think about that.  The DBW instructions tell you to deactivate all UP3 mods,one of which is the UP3widescreen mod.  When I tried to run DBW I did not think to apply the DBW widescreen mod before running DBW.

Problem one solved.

Problem two: the game still crashed.
My .exe switcher still had the 6DOF/trackir enabled from my UP3 install.  But again the 6DOF mod from DBW must be applied before running with TrackIR or the game will crash. 
I did not catch this at first since when i ran the game after fixing problem one, I did not have trackir running nor my HOTAS, because I was only trying to get the game to run, not trying to actually play.

So now everything seems to work (so far)

good to hear!
UP3 and DBW are two different beasts :) and leaving mods from "one" active when running "the other" can cause problems.
