I've been running into crashes every time I play the game now. It's so freaking annoying!
I tried everything suggested here including replacing the (backup folder) GTA IV folder and starting afresh. I even tried uninstalling everything, deleting save games (backed up the save files and then reused them though), and reinstalling everything.
I keep getting the "FATAL ERROR: Please restart the game" and/or "GTA IV Has Stopped Responding" errors/crashes! I am using ICE 1.25 with Trafficload.asi, ScriptHookDotNet.asi, Trainer.asi (Simple Trainer v6.3), FileCheckFix.asi, along with EPM v1.4 in the "Scripts" folder in the root directory (GTA IV).
My ScriptHook.dll file is dated 11/22/2009. My dsound.dll is dated 01/27/2009.
I am using a couple of mods like Exaggerated Blood and replaced the handling.dat
, and carcols.dat
from my previous installation
(which had all the details for the car mods I had) along with importing the vehicles.img
, and WEAPONS.ivaud
files from the previous installation as well.
Earlier, I had narrowed down my error to the vehicles.img file (thought it was corrupted so used the original one) but using the stock one made no difference; still crashed. It was quite funny to see the burrito van have handling characteristics of the sultanrs though!
However, I've tried a fresh install of the game and still get these crashes. Should I just not use the old save game at all? I'm quite far into it (just capped Playboy X and took his pad). I hope I don't have to start the game all over but if I can get it to be stable 100%, then I'll do it.
Someone please help!Edited by Baasha - 8/15/11 at 6:23pm
