new hardware caused TDR to stop working
keroltarr created new hardware caused TDR to stop working on Sat Nov 01, 2003 2:20 pm

Yup,

I installed a new motherboard and processor and videocard, the mb has an onboard soundcard.

Now TDR wont run, not even in setup/configure mode.

Is there a way to fix this w/o re-installing because I got a lot of 3rd party cars and patches that are a pain in the posterior to reinstall.

any advice folks?

Even if you backup the assets/Cars folder then copy it after reinstalling, there's no guarantee it will work. Believe me, I tried a number of times in the past and you'll always end up installing every individual car and track from scratch. It's the only definite way to keep from seeing those mysterious launch glitches.

always worked for me, never had problems, but if u run into problems, u could jus remove them, then install them in batches of 10, keep movin till u hit a problem, find a batch that messes u up, remove the 10 cars add 1 at a time till u find then problem, if no problems continue with 10 batches, if u still get problems post it hear or install a new version of the car then add ur skinz back later, after that continue till completed, but I still wanna know what he means by 3rd part patches.

OK clarification,

When I said "3rd party cars and patches" I meant "3rd party cars and 1st party patches"

I dont think there are any 3rd party patches.

sorry.

OK,

I cant run it in setup mode even... to change the video card settings.

It crashes with the same error any time I run the executable file.

see attatched image... oops how do I attatch an image?

Type your message, then, making sure 'I want to preview my post and/or attach a file' is ticked, hit Continue. You can now attach a file.

I'm curious how people get the url of pictures before they have even attached them, so they can show it as an image, instead of people having to click to view the attachment.
TTR on Wed Jan 07, 2004 11:50 am

When you made your post then you go and look to your attachment, then copy the URL of the image and edit your post.

Put [ image ]here the url[ /image ] (without the spaces) to let the attachment see in the post...
[SpiKe] on Wed Jan 07, 2004 12:00 pm

Yeah, I know that, but on some peoples posts it doesn't say that they've editted them. :/

That's why I asked.
TTR on Wed Jan 07, 2004 12:01 pm

Simple, you can check that too like when you want to preview/attach a file box
[SpiKe] on Wed Jan 07, 2004 12:04 pm

Oh right, I'll keep that in mind for when I next attach an image. Thanks! :smile:

hoping your running Windows XP cause I had the same problem after installing new hardware, and solved mine by:-

right clicking on the tdr.exe and changing the compailbility(sp) mode to : Windows 98/ME like I say, this is under Windows XP and it now works a treat

Hope this helps

Does your processor have HT by any chance?

I noticed somebody else had a new proc with HT too including me and we all seem to have the same error.

Hmm,

what's HT? and how do I check for it?

So is there a way to disable HT?

You can turn it off in your BIOS but I already tried that and it didn't help...

Hey there,

I had a similar problem with my new computer. I couldn't even start setup mode. It kept giving me this message "Exception at 0x005876a1

'Int divided by zero'

and then lots of strings. :suicide:

Anyway I solved the problem just as n3wton described (THANKS A BUNCH MAN!!!!) :lol: :lol: :lol:

Here's what I did:

Browse your TDR2000 CD directory (not the TDR2000 directory in your hard drive!)

Find TDR2000menu.exe

Right click it.

Click "Compatibility" tab

Click "Run this program in compatibility mode for" radio button.

Scroll down to "Windows 98/ME"

Don't touch anything else. Click OK

Go to your programs menu and start the game.

It worked for me. I hope it works for you too.

On a second note, you might wanna do these steps with the TDR2000.exe in the game directory in your hard drive. Especially if you wanna use the patch and the carpacks (Duh!!). The steps are the same and it works perfectly.

I already tried that didn't work, instead of an exception error it just gives a standard windows error now.

Yeah,

and I dont have compatibility mode settings on my win2K machine.

I wonder if there is something I can download for this...

Indeed there is! Download the Resource Kit, it includes an application compatibility tool. That may do the trick.....

Cool,

Is this a windows update?

I am looking for it but have yet to find it.

Aw, crap....the kit used to be available as a single archive....guess they felt the need to be smart again.

Save the above attachment, but I can't guarantee it'll work w/o other files.
