Ravenshield Critical Error - SetRes
 
I need help with this error. Came out of the blue in Vista, never had any probs (2yrs ago) in XP.

I have several friends with same problem: Startup rvs and it's 50% risk it crashes with critical error: setres

Driver version doesn't make changes (all 3 of us have nvidia cards...and I had Ęsame probs with my 3 last nvidia cards: 8800GTS 640MB, 8800GTS 512MB, GTX260.., all in x64 Vista 4GB)

I think all of us run x64 Vista, all 4GB RAM. XP compability and run as admin seems to help some, but still too many crashes

Origin of problem might be the in-game menus....800x600 rez, and switches to selected [1680x1050, 1920x1200, 2048x1152, anything you selected for 3D). Always at rez switch ofcourse, never mid gaming

Sweet. Somebody still plays Raven Shield! :D

Well, it's an old, outdated game, so I guess getting it to work 100% with Vista x64 could be quite a challenge, if not impossible...

Did you play with these setting already?

You will need to edit the "user.ini" file (located in the ravenshield\save\profiles\ folder) and near the bottom of the user.ini file, you will see these lines:

R6ScreenSizeX=800 R6ScreenSizeY=600 R6ScreenRefreshRate=-1 ShowRefreshRates=FALSE

Please change these lines to:

R6ScreenSizeX=800 R6ScreenSizeY=600 R6ScreenRefreshRate=60 ShowRefreshRates=TRUE

Besides: are you all using dual cores? Disabling one of the cores (or setting the affinity) seems to make it a lot more stable, also.

Christ I had a helluva time trying to run Ravenshield on my last rig which was an AMD dual core rig with an 8800GT. I haven't tried with my current rig. I was getting a lot of pixel corruption and graphics ran poorly and that was on XP. I got it to run a little better by turning off multicore optimization in the nVidia User Control Panel. I tweaked a few other settings, do not use AA and the game played a bit better. Still didn't run as well as I remembered on my single core rig. I was a bit surprised by that, all that new technology and Ravenshield ran like crap on a Dx10 card! I haven't tried the Steam version.

I've played RvS once in a while in Vista 32bits without problem (just tried a couple a minutes ago to make sure nothing changed). I make no tweaking and AA is 8x. The only problem I had was extreme stuttering with my 9800GX2 .. sold .. problem solved.

LOL.....I'm running Windows 7 64 bit beta build 7000, nvid drivers 185.2 and just loaded RVS Six 3 and patched to 1.6. Runs sweet! My earlier comment was with an earlier vid card and my AMD X2 cpu. Running a quad and RVS runs smooth as all hell. Back to Terrrorist Hunt!

It might be possible go into the Properties of the executable and change the Compatibility to Windows XP.
