Changing weapons causes crash
« on: August 05, 2003, 11:52:21 PM »
Hi all Just wondering if anybody has encountered a problem where when in game you try to change weapons using the mouse wheel and the whole thing crashes to desktop???

Im using DODV1.0 on XP pro

Any ideas or is it just a case of updating to solve the problem????

Cheers

Yes try DOD 3.xx :D - If it still does it, then ummm, we'll think of something else to try ;)
I play games on a:
ZX Spectrum 48K | Grundig C410 cassette recorder (adjustable head) | 20BT TV Philips Multistandard Color V37cm | ZX Interface 2 | New Kempston Compatible Competition Pro Switched Joystick | Sinclair BASIC OS

You know that DoD 1.0 is more recent than DoD 3.xx don't you Paul? :D

I'll give it a try when I come in from the sun.  

It's frying time,  woohoo :D

Dod had got up to 3.xx but then someone had the idea of putting it in the shops as a standalone game with out the need for Half-Life to be on your PC.

And the retail game is 1.0 and that's the latest mod :D

Makes perfect sense when you think about it :drinking:

Back to the topic :D

I set up a quick Lan game and I didn't have any problems changing the weapons using the mouse wheel.

I'm using XP Pro and one of an Optical Microsoft mouse.

P.S You have got Half-Life patched up to 1.1.1.0?

Im using XP pro latest version Half Life and a Microsoft intellimouse Optical (2 buttons extra one on each side of mouse).

I havent tried running it locally yet, but whenever I connect to a internet server it crashes the hl.exe

Strange mind.

Just tried a Lan game.

No Crash at all can change weapons and all, no problem.

Hmmmmm

Im going to try connecting to a DOD server now to see if problem still exists. It might be that Im on a 56k modem and my LAG is too high and its causing me to be booted, not nice way to be booted though.
