Hey Guys, I joined MODDB & Revora just to say how awesome Contra is. I'm an old-school Generals fan and only recently discovered Mods. Having tried ROTR, Shockwave and Annihilation, I can safely say Contra is easily the best and most creative ZH mod out there.
But I’m cursed in that my favourite mod crashes to desktop in about 50% of games. If I include Laser General in the Skirmish, either played by myself or as AI, then it’s a 100% crash rate. The game just quits straight to desktop with the Technical Difficulties error. This only seems to happen with Contra, and all of the other mods mentioned above crash very rarely if at all.
I'm running Windows 10 on an i7 920 with 24GB ram, NVidia GTX660 2GB, and both the game and my documents folder are run from my 256GB Vertex 4 SSD.
- Large Address Aware (LAA) labelled Generals.Exe (crashes happen with or without this)
- Set Generals.Exe to run as administrator and in Compatibility mode for XP3
- Given myself explicit full control permission over the .Ini files in my documents
- Tried the Lag fix I found on the forum turning off ‘Allow Files in this folder to have contents indexed in addition to file properties’ for Contra folder.
CrashInfo.Txt is summarized below / attached in full if that helps.
Does anyone else have this problem or any ideas how to reduce these crashes please?
