[Planetside] Does your game keep crashing? Here's a quick fix!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Happened to stumble upon this on the PS2 forums.

If your game keeps crashing do this:
Quote:
Run your Planetside 2 Launchpad and log in, but do not press play. Click on the Advanced Tools icon (looks like a hexagon surrounding a wrench) in the lower left and then choose the option to open game directory. In the window/folder that comes up, locate and delete the following files

ActivityUserData.ini
InputProfiles.xml
LaunchPad-user.ini
LoadingScreen.xml
PlanetSide2.exe
SoundSettings.xml
UserOptions.ini
vivoxoal.dll
vivoxsdk.dll

Once these files are deleted, close the Planetside 2 window/folder and go back to the Launchpad > Advanced Tools/Settings menu. Click on the Validate Game Assets menu option and then press the green Validate button to have the Launchpad check your game files, and download any missing or corrupt files.

As the moderator said this is a standard procedure to stop crashes that are caused by corrupt data files.
Quote:
Crashing can be caused for a variety of different factors, so it's had to definitively say what's triggering it without cracking open your computer and seeing what's inside - the above fix is issued for crashes that seem to be caused from corrupt data files.

So, yeah, it would be a generic troubleshooting step, but it's important to be able to say none of the game's files are corrupt.
