oblivion crashing

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
oblivion is crashing right after i make my character and the guy in the cell across from me starts talking. when it crashes it loops the sound playing at that second and i get a black screen with a window asking me to close the program because it has stopped working.

all my drivers are up to date and it is vanilla (settings, everything.) with only the dlc active.

help.

just tested with only the master file active no dlc

Is it the steam version or retail? If its retail check that you got it patched all the way. If its on steam then verify the integrity of the game cache.

If that does not help you can try and install the unofficial community patch.

I think you have something else going wrong here. Steam patches the game for you to get it running and to play it all the way through without needing to do anything else to it. I played for 100 hrs. before I started modding it and installed the Unofficial patch myself. Installing the 'Unofficial' patch just tweaks and fixes a few bugs here and there. You should not ( I don't) need it just to get your game to play.
I would do a complete uninstall/install (if you have them, install all the DLC...everything) and just load and play the game first before you mod anything, just to get it running and then make sure you use either Nexus Mod Manager or better yet, if Oblivion is the only game you're modding, Oblivion Mod Manager (OMM) to install the Unofficial Patch and any other mods if you must, if the mod does not need to be manually installed or have a .exe. Always read the Installation instructions on the mod page, as well as the 'Read Me' file in the mod file if there is one.

i have never modded nor want to mod the game and only got the patch in hopes that it wold work.
this was also a clean install of the game and it didnt work. i will however reinstall everything and remove the links nmm has to the file locations.

fresh install no mods, no patches, didnt change any settings let the game run its auto settings, deleted the old oblivion file in my games before the reinstall, uninstalled via steam, emptied the recycling bin before the reinstall.

the only thin i didnt do was shut down and use run to get in to my temp folder and delete all that.

The Unofficial patch is a mod, it has an .esp. So, after you did all that, did the game run or are you still having problems ? If so, go back and uninstall it again and this time, delete the temp folder. I said a 'COMPLETE' uninstall. Something is not right, because you should be able to just run Steam, install the complete game (everything, including DLC ) and just play. I've never heard of this problem with an un-modded game, that's been out for a while. New games ? Maybe but Oblivion has been out for a long time and it plays fine for me.

its a known problem with the version i have (goty edition)

crashes with and with out the patch
tried with dlc turned off and it crashed
tried with the shivering isle patch crashed
i deleted the .ini file and the render file in the /my documents/my games/oblivion
did an uninstall via steam and deleted my oblivion folder in the my documents/ my games folder and crashed.
i can get it to open
i can get to the main menu i can pick a game to load but once it fills the red loading bar my screen goes black and i get a sound loop (sounds like a bloody ak going off non-stop)

now by temp folder do you mean my steam/steamapps one or other
and can you give me steps i should follow to remove said file, unless its just high light files inside and delete.

also my computer has two drives, a 1tb for the os and a 500gb for steam oblivion is of course in the steam drive.
no oc on the i5 or on the gtx 770

So let me see if I'm understanding you. You have a 1 TB drive for your C: drive with your OS on it and a 500 GB for your E: drive ?
It really should not matter. I have an SSD for my C: with my OS on it and a 1.5 TB HDD with Steam on it and I'm running the game just fine. I don't know why you're having this problem but as a last resort, (process of elimination) you may want to completely uninstall all your games on Steam first, delete any and all files in your documents folder or the Steam file relating to them, then use a thorough uninstall app like Revo Unistaller, which is free on cnet.com to thoroughly uninstall Steam and every file relating to it, (once it's done with the initial uninstall, delete every file in the following 2 steps of the Revo process) then since you have a 1 TB C: drive, try installing Steam/Oblivion on that drive and see if it works then. That's all I can suggest.

Do you have GX mode enabled on your sound card? Noticed you have a DGX. I had the same problem with oblivion until I disabled that mode. It causes tons of problems and if anything sounds worse.
