Barrage + WinXpSp3

Post by Gamecollector »

Symptoms: the game crashes after the 3dfx logo. Barglide.exe module barglide.exe offset 40c87.

1) The fresh install not crashes. The crash starts after several runs with different resolutions... Uninstalling then reinstalling fixes the crash (default game options?)
2) After this crash happened once it repeats for patched and unpatched barglide.exe.
3) After this crash happened once the d3d version crashes too. Barrage.exe module barrage.exe offset 42fef.
4) Tested with nGlide 2.10, 2.00 and 1.05. No luck, looks like this crash isn't related to nGlide.
5) Barglide.exe (patched) + Voodoo2 SLI if the crash is active -- no crash, works almost perfectly.

P.S. Cant find the game registry/data file for options... Looks like game settings are in Junk\options.dat...

Ok, looks like this bug is related to the game resolution stored in options.dat.
640×480, 800×600 and 1024×768 are ok with barglide.exe. 1280×1024 starts the crash.
Barrage.exe not crashes with 640×480 and crashes with 800×600, 1024×768 and 1280×1024.
You can play with any resolution but set it to the "not bugged" one before quitting. Or delete Junk\options.dat.
V2 SLI can't use 1280×1024 so it resets the resolution to 640×480 and avoids this crash.
