    Game crashing to desktop after clicking create to start mission

    Hi

    I've started having issues with the game, I play MP and get the issue on all of the servers.

    After selecting the plane I want to fly, I click select and as the cockpit starts to appear the games crashes to desktop, if I go back into the game and repeat it might start the mission fine or might crash again.

    I have Tobruk installed, bought this the day it game out and have been playing without issues untill recently.

    Windows event history shows the following, I have unchecked Steam overlay and reinstalled the game.

    Faulting application name: Launcher64.exe, version: 1.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x607441f2
    Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.19041.964, time stamp: 0xbd2c3c23
    Exception code: 0xc000041d
    Fault offset: 0x00000000000a3d40
    Faulting process ID: 0x2bbc
    Faulting application start time: 0x01d742667a834764
    Faulting application path: D:\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover Blitz\Launcher64.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll
    Report ID: 6dd35d5d-0ca6-4533-9796-d4d58ec4eb47
    Faulting package full name:
    Faulting package-relative application ID:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Rob

    Hi Rob,

    The two main things to try:
    1.- Run a "verify game files integrity" on steam for it to re-download any missing or corrupt file.
    2.- go to "my documents" and rename the IL2 folder to make sure the game does not find any of the old configuration files and re-creates them. If this makes the game run, start copying your old .INI files one by one until you find the one that causes the crash.

    Hi

    So renaming the file stops the game crashing however the game keeps creating a new file with the original name which then makes the game crash again.

    Thanks

    Hello Rob

    Did you read the 'Getting Started and Troubleshooting Guide'?

    There are many suggestions and pointers for avoiding issues detailed there.

    As Colander mentioned, you need to find the cause by elimination.

    Alternatively, please read the following post and then reply on this thread:

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply, I looked at the troubleshooting when the problem started happening, renaming il-2-sturmovik cliffs of dover file in the 1CSoftClub folder works, its just that it keeps creating a new file with the original name, what causes this and can I do anything to stop this?

    It only seems to crash after a new folder with the original name is generated.

    Thanks

    Where is your game installed?

    Is it installed on your main 'C' Drive?

    If not, this can sometimes cause problems.

    Hi

    Thanks for getting back to me, I have the game installed on a 2nd SSD and windows on a smaller SSD which is the C Drive. I will move Cliffs to the C Drive and see how I get on.

    Thanks

    Rob
