Heroes 2 crash and more ?
Posted on 1997-04-04
I have recently upgraded my motherboard to Intel i430HX
chipset (Global Impact's Crusader board) because my previous one turned out defective. Before that, I used to
play Heroes of Might and Magic 2 and everything was fine.
What really bugs me is that lately I have been receiving an
error with the game. It can happen after 2 hrs or even 6.
Once I tried to exit and it told me something was wrong with AppFullWindow and crashed. Once I got a blue screen telling me of a Fatal Error in 0014:??? and once the computer informed me of a Registry Error.
This is new to me - what is Registry Error ? I uninstalled
and reinstalled the game in vain. Everything else works perfectly (to the best of my knowledge). Can the problem be related to DirectX 3 ? I have heard Microsoft has some suggestions for crashing with Direct X3 ? ...
My config: P133, Creative SB16, 1.6GIG & 2.5GIG WD drives,
Diamond Stealth 3D (certified DirectX 3)
I don't care about the game, what eludes me is the mystery of the crashes. I must add that I got a "Registry Error"
once after exiting Diablo. Can it be that this is regardless to my motherboard change ? Maybe I was just "lucky" to get this error after replacing the board ?
Heroes2 has an option to play in a non Full Screen mode.
Can it be that they have a problem ?
I must add that at first I installed the Bus Master drivers
which came with my motherboard and then deinstalled them.
The frequency of the crashes in Heroes2 decreased, but it
didn't give a full solution. Anything else on my system seems to be working fine. Any ideas ?
