Patching causes Game Crash - Startup Loading Sceen 4 Years, 2 Months ago  
Game: Stronghold 2 Deluxe
Operating system:Windows Vista
Computer:Dell Inspiron 531

When I install the game and play it without any patches, it works fine.
Patch 1.3D WORKS

However, I stopped playing when the first patch came out, because it stopped the game from loading. Stronghold 2 Deluxe would crash about 4/5ths of the way across the . Re-installing the game with patch 1.0.0 made it work again.
Patch 1.2.0 CAUSES CRASH

I havenít tried it on patch 1.3.0.
Patch 1.3.0 UNKNOWN

I installed patch 1.4.0 in the hope that they'd fixed this. Guess what:
Patch 1.4.0 CAUSES CRASH

I installed patch 1.4.1 and no change. The game always crashes during the loading screen, at the exact same point. About 4/5ths across the .
Patch 1.4.1 CAUSES CRASH

I don't get any error message, just the "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

So something in the patch causes the crash, that's obvious. I've tried the game on the lowest graphic settings (I can have it on highest with only slight lag) with the lowest resolution, still nothing. I've put it on my exact screen resolution, nothing.



I'd really appreciate any help you could give. I don't want to buy Stronghold 3 if its going to have the same amount of problems.

Oh and I've tried SecuROM, they found no problems.

Other then deleting SH2 and all related regristry entries and trying a fresh install im not sure what else to tell you.
Did you try the SH2 tech forum over at Stronghold 2 Heaven? PCDania is pretty knowledgable about things like this.
Might try Firefly/2K support as well.
Good luck
