Strage crashing behavior in GSCX since latest update

Discussion in 'Stock Car Extreme' started by Sk3ptik0n, Sep 28, 2014.

  1. I have already submitted this in the bug thread, but since I have not received any response (maybe I shopuld not expect one) and this is hampering my effort to play the game., I wanted to bring it up in its own post.
    The original post is this: http://www.racedepartment.com/threads/gsce-v1-21-bug-report-thread.91815/page-5#post-1817758
    where I explain how when I launch GSC Instead of the usual GSC start screen, some sort of command line window pops up and I have to focus on the GSC window manually.

    Since I posted that, I discovered that also the game often quits when I press "ESC" to get off the track. Not always but I have not found a pattern yet.

    Also, when the game is running, beside the regular GSC window and the Command Line one, at some point a dump alert (a version of which I put in my OP) is always in the background. Initially I though that alert was there when I quit the game (intentionally or not) but I have since discovered it's always there. It's like the game crashes almost immediately but it's kind enough to let me play.

    I also tried multiple time to sync all of my installations. It syncs but the behavior remains.

    One thing I solved on the version with all my Mods (I have a clean version as well) is that I had to clean up the shared folder or some tracks would not load. I took the shared folder from my virging edition, renamed the old one and pasted it. Since then I have avoided track loading frezes, but I have to wonder: aren't those files in the shared folder necessary for some of the kods? And as I use those mods, won't they be written again since I remember a lot of them came without a ":shared" folder ?

    Thank you for any help here, it's driving me cucu.

    PS: is there a full installation file for the latest GSC Xtreme? I'd like to toss my installation and start from scratch if I can.

    Isn't the command line window from the real feel console ?
    Please check
    ConsoleEnabled= in your realfeelplugin.ini , it should be False
  3. INdeed, very good. I am not sure why I turned it on. I think because I wanted to turn on the real feel ability of reverting the feedback direction. I didn't think it would cause the console to open because in rFactor AFAIK it doesn't do that. In fact in rF1 it is usually on by default.

    Is there a way to be able to apply the realfeel keystrokes (Ctrl-4, CTRL-6 etc) for the FFB reverting and increasing decreasing FFB without the console opening?

    Or am I totally offbase?

    In any case, thank you for solving that mystery. On my virgin GSCX it stopped doing it but then I realized that's because I synced it. On my modded installation I made realfeel a read-only file so the sync would not override all my custom cars.
  4. Something occurred to me: if the console is from Realfeel, then probably that's not the cause of the crash. Should I upload the dump files? I tried opening them but they are gibberish so obviously I need an interpreter of sort. Most of what I found so far is designed to read blue screen crashes, not game crashes.

    These keystrokes also work without the console being open, not if your realfeelplugin.ini is read-only though. You want to turn the SpeechEnabled part on.

  6. Thanks, I just realized that. For some reason, when I tried that recently it did not work. Maybe I did not press the right keys or something like that (I find it hard to type and drive, which is why I usually don't bring my keyboard with me on my commute) so I figured it didn't work, I turned that on and it worked and I assumed they were connected. Coincidence.

    BTW, one of the reasons the game is crashing is the files in th "shared" folder. Seems like I have to clean it every once in a while and then the game works fine. Basically I am keeping a "shared2" folder in the installation and keep the files there. When I have time I'll try to figure out exactly which shared files is causing the crash.
