GSC 2013 crashes after a while

Discussion in 'Stock Car Extreme' started by Jimmy Larsen, Nov 25, 2013.

  1. After playing for 10-15 minutes the game crashes and make the computer cut the connection to my screen.

    I have tested with other games - iRacing, pCARS, Asetto Corsa, ARMA3 and others. For as long as up to 45 minutes. And with absolutely no problems.
    But after starting GSC2013 it cuts the screen connection after 10-15 min and i have to reboot computer....
    My graphic setting is medium to high....as it is in other games.

    I also made a benchmark test (3DMark) - no problems at all...

    My basic specs is : Win7 - 8GB rams - Nvidia GTX650Ti 2GB -

    Any suggestions ?!

    Hi Jimmy

    Have you tried starting and running the game as admin,im running windows7 and had a few problems starting normally i then started running it as admin and its been fine since,might be worth trying if you havnt all ready done so.
     
  3. Must admit, although the game generally runs fine and at good high fps on my system, I seem to have some instability problems I have never seen before in previous GSC versions or in other sims.

    Occasionally after about 30 minutes of racing my sound cuts out completely for a few seconds, then returns. This might happen twice during a 50 minute race but then is fine again.
    Also, similar to above post, sometimes I quit the game and one of my three screens remains black and will not return to the desktop. I can either reset computer or restart the game and shut it down again and it corrects it.
    Both are weird problems I have not seen before, but only very occasional so has not spoiled enjoyment so far.
    (AMD Phenom ii 960t 3ghz quad, 8gb ram, Windows 7 64bit, Sapphire HD7950 3gb, 3 x 22in monitors in eyefinity).
     
  4. I had a similar issue yesterday, the screen was frozen completely with the sound in a loop. I had to manually reset the computer. So far it's only happened once, and I did not have this issue before the 1.10 update.
     
  5. I will try run as admin......ill get back with result...
     
  6. Well that didnt help....running as Admin that is....

    4 minutes and screen went black.....
     
  7. @ Keith - Btw, i have also have the same AMD cpu as you.........
     
  8. Thats why i will never buy a game from independant team dev and only on online purchase mode ;)

    sorry y suggestion didnt help
     
  10. ? I don't understand. If you never buy games that are only downloadable online, then you are missing some great games, and what are you even reading this for? Is that why you are still playing GP4?
    Aside from that, it is off topic and no help whatsoever, thanks.

    It's a million-to-1 chance, but it just might work Premium Member

    @Jimmy Larsen The only thing I can suggest are the obvious ones...
    1: check & update your graphics & sound drivers. Obviously try the ones from the card manufacturer, not the Win7 updates
    2: uninstall/reinstall the game
    3: try something like GameBooster http://www.razerzone.com/gb-en/gamebooster to make sure there's nothing in the background messing things up for you
    4: uninstall/reinstall DX9 http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/directx_9_uninstaller.html

    TBH, I guess you've already tried most of these, but I hope you get the game working
     
  15. Thanks Tim....good suggegions......i will try some of it.
