Help with TDR 2000
watson created Help with TDR 2000 on Tue Dec 21, 2004 12:16 am
Post
Recently found my Carmageddon series (bottom of the cupboard) and decided to play them again, with help from here I got the first 2 to run but with TDR I keep getting a "DirectX error at 0x80070057" when trying to play the second level to release the shark.

I have tried compatablity mode,changing graphic drivers,re-downloaded DirectX 9.0c,with/without the NB patch. The only way I can play the level is if I change to software mode and run the level, it looks worse than Carma1 and runs really badly making the level un-completeable :mad:

My Pc has the following :

A64 3500+

1GB Ram

XFX 6800 GT

Plenty of HDD space

Audigy 2zs

PS I`ve even tried some downloaded versions to see if the cd is nackered but still get the same error. If theres no fix I`ll just bin it :sad: and keep playing the other two :smile:

i understand. my c2 wouldnt work for over a year and i was about to kill some one but then i got it working. i couldnt even imagine what wouldve happened if that were to happen to my tdr 2000 game. :supercrazy:

No dice there or its not working properly as I dont get any new options when the game starts (couldnt post a screenshot of what it does could you :smile:) but I did notice one thing when using D3D its trying to use DX 7.1 is there a way to force it to use DX 9.0c with a patch or hack ?

if you mean take a picture of the game and what it looks like or what it is saying is wrong you can take a picture by pressing the printscrn button and then go in to paint and the paste and the picture you took will be there.

This is what it does when its starting the level.

I think I know what the problem is now, its not reading my graphic card correctly or does it not recongnise the new graphics card?

Because its a background for your desktop thats been rezised by the board cause he gave a link instead of an uploaded avatar

I was trying to run the game in a window that time to see if that would help.

Ah! I thought it might have brought up some more options when using the "-s -f" in the target line,I`ve tried all the options there too, what setting do you use to run it? maybe im missing something like a file or registry key?

Wooops! forgot to crop the image

Ack! thanks but it still didnt work at least I can stroke that of the list possible causes, that when it says its using DX7.x for render thats not causing it. Thanks for the sreenshot grab :smile:

wow i didnt know you could care so much about something so stupid. a little over emotional i would say and i am one of those 56k users and i can see it fine. but i will change it if its THAT big of a problem to you.
watson on Tue Dec 21, 2004 5:49 pm

Okay now I get a different error message after changing the settings to :

Run default graphic card

Res 640x480

Windowed

Is the file corrupted, can I dl a new one or can you re-write the text file?
kelctic_findings on Tue Dec 21, 2004 5:56 pm

hey toshiba-3 when does these settings come up. cause when i do it they never come up. you have to have a shortcut saying shortcut to carmageddon tdr 2000.exe-s. this is right? but when i do it nothing happens.

i thought sense we were on this topic that i would ask this qeustion.
watson on Tue Dec 21, 2004 6:18 pm

With mine all I had to do was goto programs > SCI> and select the TDR setup option (should be at the bottom).

Man, thats the SAME exact error i get when installing the Nosebleed patch

this probbly wont help, but you could always uninstall the patch and then

Re-install it

i dont have an SCI in my programs :crazy:
watson on Tue Dec 21, 2004 7:04 pm
Post
right okay then right click on tdr2000.exe and create a shortcut, then right click on that and in the target line add -s at the end make sure theres a gap and you`ll get the options.
watson on Tue Dec 21, 2004 7:07 pm
Post
when i did that i get the old directx error but with the nb patch i get that one, maybe its fate stopping me from playing it :sad:
kelctic_findings on Tue Dec 21, 2004 7:10 pm
Post
yeah so the short cut will say shortcut to carmageddon tdr 2000.exe -s right? well when i do it nothing happens it just goes into the game i play the game the i quit and im done. this shortcut is on my desktop does it have to be in the tdr2000 folder?
watson on Tue Dec 21, 2004 7:15 pm
Post
na just right click on the shortcut and in the traget field add the -s or try -f at the end of the line lick this. Hope that helped you :smile:

I was joking if you didnt know but could you list or post what the "powerupStrings_uk.txt" + "powerupStrings_ukzombie.txt" files contains inside them on your pc to see if mines differ from yours and I`ll see if I can try to fix it that way.
