  1. First off thanx for the reply and thanx for the suggestions. I hope my problem is not due to the overvoltage on the cpu on the overclock since i think i still had this issue when i was not overclocking. To get to your questions, yes i did apply the nvidia recommended patches; i keep the OS uptodate with the Windows Updates and i m not sure if that would be the same as installing SP1 i believe it is. No other program crashes except for explorer which stalls sometimes while streaming, however no blue screens or anything like that. No other program makes the pc reboot like LockOn. Al
  2. Another smart post.. it s amazing the amount of useless people on the planet.
  3. Vista has that same option and it has been checked since install to make sure the program would run. However, the issue is that the compatibility option does help when a program has trouble starting, in this case the program starts, but crashes after some time. I tried running with compatibility eabled and disabled and i cant see any difference, it runs and crashes in both instances.
  4. well the problem started when the cpu was not overclocked, the clocking didnt change the effects i guess..
  5. Reporting back to say that even with the onboard audio, no creative drivers installed the problem still exists. Tried no audio at all in game and also disabling the audio card, those also did not work. On a positive note the avi recorder works (which never did for me on xp)
  6. That info is actually in the first 5 lines of the original post Yes and Yes The price is right, creative hardware it is, also mentioned in the post but i m pretty sure you just guessed it. I ll try that out but i think it was happening with the Realtek Onboard audio as well.. we ll see
  7. Plenty of other minidump files available upon request.. crashes are daily to say the least...
  8. Lockon keeps crashing when it feels like, single player as well as multi. PC keeps rebooting regularly right after the program gets closed. Still no solution to the issue and noone to talk to about it...
  9. I just downloaded the track and watched the whole video. Very cool track but i wanted to mention something about it ... isnt the whole mission based on a tactic possible only by exploiting the game ? I dont mean to be polemic.. but the way the pilot gets on the enemy's six flying 9 meters off the water is cool and looks awesome in a video and all but still .. i find that a bit odd as a 'training video'. Just pushing the paradox here, but it s a bit like saying 'hey kids you can do this to avoid enemy radar' it s an exploit but we wont mention that ;). Dont get me wrong, i m a huge fan, i sta
  10. As previously mentioned on this same thread, there s no solution to this bug as of now. Different drivers will not solve the issue. Turn down full shadows to the next available setting, which should be active planar shadows and that should get rid of the issue.
  11. Try pressing CTRL + T and then try to level the plane out .. see if that makes a difference.
  12. Graphical Issues were present in XP as well and they still are. I remember my own issues there when i used to run XP myself. The fact that the Vista Os and Lockon are not compatible is not entirely true. There s a handful of people blessed by god knows what that can run the two just fine. The problem is that Lockon wasnt coded FOR Vista, or with it in mind.. not even close. The audio issues reflect this since in Vista the audio stack is completely different than what is under XP. Issued solved for most players that use creative hardware with Alchemy. I have it myself and works just fine
  13. Your car breaks down and u buy a new one right ? Would you at least have the curtesy of reading the post before saying "go get xp" .. that s not even acceptable after the release of a patch that was supposed to fix compatibility with vista. I swear people are just so used to the way things are that just about noone is willing to step up and make an effort to actually DO something to even attempt to make things better. What is that ? Your attitude is just like "heh you know this is how it is, take it or leave it..", a classic coming from an American, definitely not impressive.
  14. Rant-time Well it s been almost a week now and noone has posted a reply with any relevance to the problem...:music_whistling: At this point i am a little disappointed with the support :( and I am wondering if the posts here are usefull at all. I mean if i cant get a reply to a problem i am having why am i reporting the issue in the first place ?:wallbash: So that i can share my "bad experience" with other forum users ? So we can all cry together ? :sad_2::ranting::sad_2::drunk::ranting::sad_2: Yes sure some people have experience with pc's and can point u in the right direction with s
  15. Yes you need to have the .NET installed in order to install the drivers, it s a Windows update installation .. just go to the windows update page and get the .NET framework. You ll be able to install the video drivers just fine after that. Dont forget to reboot ;) Cheers EDIT: Actually just to make it clear, i believe the .NET framework is necessary to install the control panel for the ATI drivers, not the drivers themselves.. just thought i d point that out. You should be able to install the standalone drivers without control panel even without the .NET but since you re at it you mi
  16. I am just wondering if anyone from ED has taken a look at this post (or to similar ones for that matters), and if there s someone that could venture into possible solutions that dont include drivers update. I am, as well as any other i imagine, willing to give any info that could help to find a fix.. It would also be nice to know if there is anyone working on getting lockon 'more' playable on vista, since that s where we re heading in the future.. Thanks
  17. same Same issue reported here with windows crash information: http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=28191 Hopefully someone can decifer whatever that says.
  18. don t start... Honestly if you don't realize that Vista is better than XP that s fine, people used to say that of XP when they swore they d never switch from Win 98. You like to live int he past.. fine, that s your problem, just remember that some day you are going to HAVE to switch, cause Microsoft will find a way to make XP disappear so.. get ready. At least spare me these comments! I m here cause i have a real problem and i hope that someone from ED could tell me how to work around it. 'Buying' XP is not a solution. I am already aggravated by the fact that I can't play for more tha

  20. Just replying to report the same issue.. After a certain amount of time the Microsoft Error Mesage comes up asking me if i want to close the program or look up online for a solution, in either case after pressing one of the 2 options i get a blue screen and a memory dump. The blue screen refers to a PROCESS_HAS_LOCKED_PAGES error, not sure if that means anything. The solutions MS proposes are 1) Install latest video driver (which i did, have the 169.25 Nvidia Drivers for my GTS 8800) 2) Select "Adjust for better performance" in the coputer performance settings tab. (not done since i doub
  21. Just an update on the subject. I installed Creative Alchemy Software and it solved any audio isue with Lockon & Vista. For $9.99 it s worth the hassle free game. All you need to do is download the 19 Mb file after purchase, add the directory of the game to the console, and that s it. Game works on original settings as well as with sound mods installed under modman. Cheers. EDIT PS: There is a torrent cracked version of this software, dont try it cause it wont work. It crashes the game upon launch. The 1.00.05 version is probably bugged. The 1.00.35 is the version you w
  22. Are u talking about a new DX10 version ?? EDIT: I downloaded the latest DX version from MS and it did not change anything at all. The issue remains the same. Thanx for the suggestion though, maybe installing the DX9 on top of the 10 might give some result, i might try that. Though since the issue is server related we should probably just try to pinpoint what setting it is and get it over with.
  23. I have to add that the problem seems server related. The =RvE= server seems problem free, others dont, like the =RAF= or the other one i tried the AKADO_GUNS. These last ones did have the audio issue mentioned above .. if we could restrict the problem to a server setting and point out which setting it is maybe we could all just standardize that for all servers..
  24. DANG !!! Thought i had the problem fixed using the workaround Ezor mentioned, and it WAS working. I tried single and multi player and both were running fine. After installing a few other programs it is NOT fine anymore.. Not sure if it was the openAL install or LOCFG, or something else even, but the result is that i m back at square one with the same audio issue and i cant get rid of it AGAIN. I uninstalled Open AL and the problem is still there.. i m lost now !
