Weird Planetside launch problem


Hi!

I have encountered a strange problem with Planetside which I wanted to see if anyone else has expierenced.

I usually don't reboot my computer to often and this is how I discovered the problem.

If I launch Planetside I can play it just fine no hickups and runs smooth. But if I close Planetside and maybe one hour later or similiar try to launch Planetside again I am unable to launch it.

The game loads up but as the SOE splash screen and the music starts it pops me back out to windows. The game seems to continue as the music keeps playing but if I try to restore the Planetside session from the start menu it just pops me back out to windows and I have to right click Planetside and close it.

This is solved when I reboot the computer than I can start it again but after closing Planetside I have the same problem again. Has anyone else had this problem and if so did you manage to solve it?

Here follows some of my specs.

Intel Q6600 CPU
6gb RAM DDR2
Geforce 8800 GTS
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Thank you in advance.

Have you tried checking the processes that are running?

What do you mean excatly? If there are any processes that interfer with Planetside? I have actually managed to start Planetside once without rebooting but I guess that was sheer luck because every time since then I had to reboot.

Have also tried updating my gfx driver with no improvement.

I have had this once and it was because the process had not terminated when the game closed.

To fix

ctrl+alt+delete

Go to task management

go to the process tab (top of the window)

look for planetside in the list

highlight

click end process

process should terminate and enable you to log in

Please note you need administration rights to perform the above actions

Re: Weird Planetside launch problem


I have been running planetside again recently. I have found that it has some hickups. I just chauked it up to the unusual resolution I am running.

First, the game crashes randomly. When it does crash to desktop the process keeps running and hijacks my mouse. I have to alt ctl del and use the keyboard to end task. The game also uses over a gig - 2 gig of ram which I found unusual for the age of the game.

Second, when launching the game sometimes it says launching and then nothing happens. I have no idea why.

Third, sometimes after I exit the task keeps running and or I get a crash message.

Finally, with fraps I get three strikes. I can only run it three times before it crashes and burns. See First for what happens next.

I like to say I am fairly fluint in computers. I have built all of my own computers for over ten years. The first one I built I was in high school. My current setup is a quad core 3.5ghz AMD3 system. The thing has 8 gb of DDR3 and duel geforce 460s with 2gb each for a total of 4gb of graphics ram. I run planetside at 5760X1080 on three 27inch monitors via HDMI. Windows is version 7 home premium 64bit.


Grim, I would try starting the task manager via alt ctl del and selecting planetside which should still be running. Then select end process tree. Then try running again from there.

Yeah nice tip there guys. I will actually check my computer today when I get home because it has not been rebooted since last night. Will be interesting to see if I can find a Planetside process still around.

Will update later tonight when I have checked it.

I have the same problem with PS not closing out,sometimes even after going through task manager.


this game used to have a massive memory leak that would result in it using more and more ram until you had to reboot.

I also crash every time I recall to sanc.
