The subject says it all.

It's mildly annoying, but for some reason I am getting an error every time I exit from JA2 Gold. Nothing I have done (compatibility modes, uninstall/reinstall and such) have remedied the situation. It doesn't seem to affect the game in any way, it's just annoying. I do have the occasional crash from the game, but I think at this point that's to be expected.

I am currently using WinXp Home with service pack 2. I have done all possible updates from Windows Update. I am using an unmodified installation of JA2 Gold, patched up to 1.12. I do not currently have UB or Wildfire installed at all.

I have even upgraded the entire system (processor, mobo, and all) and it still does the same thing. Is there something simple that I don't know about that I am missing?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks!

if it matters, my current system is:

AMD Opteron 150 (up from Athlon 3000+ 'Barton')
Epox nForce4 SLI mobo (up from Epox nForce2 mobo)
2GB RAM (up from 1GB)
2 nVidia 7800GT in SLI (up from ATI 9700 Pro)
2x250GB WD HDs in RAID 0
Audigy 2 ZS

I just found that 1.13 mod, I think I will give that a try and see if it helps.

but please feel free to make suggestions!

Does anyone know another way of fixing this problem? I have the save problem when I'm exiting the game. And I would like to wait, before I upgrade it to 1.13, so I can try it out first. Cause it sounds like the enemies will be more difficult to defeat in the 1.13 mod, and it's not really an official upgrade is it?

I'm experiencing this crash too. It started happening immediately after I installed XP SP2 on my PC, and I did not find any way to prevent it. I do not experience this crash with v1.13.

It's annoying, but it hasn't caused any adverse effects that I've been able to discover. I wish I could be entirely happy with just moving to v1.13 - and maybe I could be if I understood more about how to tweak it - but for the time being I still want to play both versions.

you can still play the 1.13 version with the original data files from 1.12.

I believe you change a setting in JA2.INI (not JA2_options.INI) from 'DATA-1.13' to 'DATA' and you can play the 'original' game.

Never did this myself, but I believe that's how you do it.

I could not get my crashes to go away any other way than this. I tried every compatibility mode I could find, and stopped just short of installing Windows Me or 98SE or something stupid like that.

I did a bit more reading up on 1.13, and I'm pretty sure that I'm going to switch to it exclusively, assuming that my remaining questions on how to tweak it can be addressed...

I have WindowsXP SP2 and JA2 Gold patched up. No problems at all. Fact is that i had terrible problems (crashes to desktop, slow system etc.)with Norton Antivirus. When i changed to ETrust the problems where gone.

I haven't used Norton Anything forever. I use AVG exclusively. In fact, JA2 1.12 behaved the same way on both of my home PC's, it would show "Jagged Alliance 2 Gold has caused an error... etc etc etc" when the program would exit.

Have you tried reinstalling the game (copy your gamesaves)?

You guys might try AndroidXPs crash moniter program. It's very nice and works real well. Check it out here.

The "crash monitor" is really more of a "hang monitor." It's not really relevant to this particular crash on shutdown.

By the way, I uninstalled and reinstalled JA2 after I started having the problem, and it made no difference for me.

I do have Norton Anti-Virus installed, but the crash still happens with Norton disabled. Of course, what Norton means by "disabled" may not really get it out of the way...

The get rid of the crash on exit is to replace the corrupt version of mss32.dll (from JA2UB, ...).

DSmidgy - didn't fix the crash on exit but it solved basically every other problem I was having with the game (except for sucking at it Smile)! Thanks!

I had this same problem till I installed the 800x600 res patch. Even after uninstalling the patch and "rolling back" to 640x480 vanilla ja2, the crash no longer occurs. Curious, isn't it? Might have something to do with graphics, then (UB uses a more advance code, apparently).

I have this "crash on exit" problem also on 2 PC's. Both have v. 1.12 (Gold) with Win XP SP2. Both are using Kaspersky AV.

Since I see that no solution has yet been posted in this thread, I'm going to explore the 1.13 patch.
