View Full Version : Client locked up!

2015-01-03, 01:01 PM
I haven't played PS2 since some time in August, due to trying to get some new compy parts... then my old psu toasted*magic white smoke and all*, then I get a NEW psu, and the volt meter, even before I plug it in, is reading 8.2v... so I'm not even touching the computer with that power supply. 16 days after that, the NEW power supply comes in the mail... and my graphics card makes magic white smoke... s.o.a.b.! Get NEW graphix... Get brother to look over everything. Surprisingly, motherboard, bus, and cpu are perfectly fine. Load up windows 8 64 bit *i hate 8 to death...*, install ps2, log in, click my char, it pops up the first loading screen after char select.... still loading... I go smoke. I come back, and it's still sitting at 92%, completely locked up, I can't even ctrl-alt-del! Have to kill the power, so I try it again, this time, sitting and watching the whole thing. Same results, it hits 92%, at the last load before you get to the map selection screen, and locks up.

Is there any spot I can check for crash & error codes that where thrown, so I can figure out just what the heck happened, and I can more accurately have a hard target for the F- B-52's to F-Nuke?

*Edit: This is the only game I've had this issue with. I haven't even had this issue, yesterday (1/2/15), with Tribes Ascend on high settings, and no fps/cpu nuking with any of my single player games on highest settings.

Well I would try a reinstall of the game if you are using steam try downloading direct from soe, or vice versa if using a direct install from soe try installing it off of steam.

Tried the steam rout... But no real change. Sure, I lock up at 99% now, but I still lock up. The 3 times I managed to tab to the task manager, it was saying that PS2 had between 1.5-2 M KB to process (Yes, 1,543,000 - 2,013,000 kb)! Definitely some sort of memmory leak, considering it use to only take up 400k-575k kb. :(

Hmm I guess the next question is what are your pc specs?
