Borderlands issues

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

I received Borderlands for christmas and it is brilliant. Totally addicted. I have been having real problems though.

1. Yesterday especially the game crashed every 10 minutes. It may have been the area I was in(Crazy Earls scrap yard) I tried re installing,repairing,changing memory timings and then eventually lowered the settings. Lowering the settings seemed to kinda fix theh issues. I still had a few crashes. I lowered the AA to 8 from 16. The thing was the game ran fine with full settings except the crashing. I also had Vsynce configured using theconfig file. I disabled that as part of yesterdays troubleshooting.

2. When searching for online games most of the time I only get a short list and only seem to be able to remedy it by playing single player for a minute then coming out and searching for an online game. Other wise I get 1 or 2 level one games available.

3.When ever I download DLC 4 wether it be the main site or a mirror it's corrupted. I'm trying a torrent at the moment but wonder if hav some packet loss issue with my provider. The thing is it extracts fine which makes me believe it not the connection rather than the thing i'm downloading. Always says setup2.cab is corrupt.

Any help on these issues would be great

PS I found that joining high level games allowed me to raise my level real quick but now I am struggling to find guns at the level I am at. Any suggestions on the fix for this?

Thanks in advance

I know there were issues with crashes a while back (like when the game was new) related to nvidia drivers. But I'm talkin _old_ versions, like the 191's. What are you using? Of course I don't know for SURE, but if I had to bet parts of my anatomy on it, I'd say your crashing involves SLI and/or vid driver issues.

Dial back AA to zero and test that as well. When I upped AA in borderlands I wasn't even able to tell that it was working, so try 0 AA and see how it looks. I don't think the game is receptive to its AA settings. You may see no difference in quality, but have no more crashing.

Turns out the crashing is my overclock. Still cannot get DLC 4 to work or find an answer to searching for online games

Can anyone help with this?

There is also a patch that came out a while ago you may want to install as well (1.4.1 I think).

If you want to find guns at your level I would assume going into a shop would have them as well as just playing singleplayer. I just started playing it again with a friend and we are both level 32.

Message me and I might be able to help you with that DLC thing.

I may have finally got a good download of DLC4(will verify tonight) I have the newest patch also. The problem with the shop is that i'm at level 36 due to quick up leveling on multiplayer and in single player when I go to a shop all the guns are level 22-28 but that not so much of an issue now as I have completed single player and have been getting some good weapons on the other 3 dlc's.


My only real problem now is finding multiplayer games without entering a single player and then trying again to see if it finds more servers.

Can't help you with MP issue. My friend and I make our own private game so we never look for someone else's server. Maybe there is just not a lot of people playing it?

I thought at first there might not be lots of people playing. but say I go in and get a list of 20 matches. Then I join one and leave straight away. i search again and I only see 3 matches. So I go into single player and then leave straight away and go back to multiplayer. This time when it searches again it shows the lilst of 20 again.

It's just annoying having to join a single player game to get this to work.
