Hi. Game crashes to desktop when I use dialog options that are on the left side of the dialog dial. For instance, there's a total of 4 options, up, down, left, right. When I choose the left it always crashes to desktop and I can't continue the game. For instances when the pilot asks about my augs if i click "reassure" option it crashes so I have to take the one on the right, now when she flew me back from the milwakee plant i go click "leave" to leave the conversation and it always crashes to desktop. It also crashes from time to time when doing the little movie cutscenes. I thought this was fixed with the patch?...or is there a new patch coming out that fixes these issues?

I am having the same issue. The game crashes on selecting the left dialog option.

Weird ... Just started after the patch.

Yeah, thats the thing. I never had this problem pre patch, but post patch it crashes on left dialoge option.

Same thing for me :(
Whatever is the dialog, choosing the left option leads to a game crash.
I tried the game yesterday and haven't this problem.

Yeah its annoying because now the game is unplayable. After letting sanders go you get pulled into the conversation with the pilot Malik once she flys you back to the HQ and there is no other way to get out of it, you have to click the "leave" option in the dialog screen which ofcourse instantly crashes it. I was having zero problems before the patch, yet now after the patch I'm getting 100% crashes everytime i click the left dialog option and sometimes it will crash during the cutscenes as well. This should be patched asap as it is something that customers can't get around, thus making the game unplayable.

This bug has disapeared today.

Seems to be a bug that can be fixed by a reboot.

Strange.

Well, it still doesnt work for me. While talking to your ex-mother in law in your apartment lobby my game quits without any error when selecting the "witness" option. The same happens when I speak to the female x-colleague dressed up as a hooker.... Its terrible.. The game is inplayable and there is no replies from the creators... No cred to the game testers....

:(

Putting the game on the shelf and returns to Borderlands... hoping for a patch soon...

Why is this problem not mentioned in any other articles?? Is is a problem that they're working on a fix for? Where are the replies from the staff?? It looks like they dont even read this forum... :( I want my game to work, or a refund of my €50 ffs!!

Have you guys tried deleting the game exe, and re-verifying your game cache.. Are you running any form of proxies or the like on your pcs?

If the reverifying doesnt help, can you pm me your steam username? so we can try and track down the crashdumps for you etc.

Thanks

The same thing happens to me now. I am already near the end of the Game, and i think i bought it atfer the first patch so that didn't ruin it for me.

I played for like 3 hours yesterday and i didn't have any crashes, but today i started playing again and now i can't choose an response on the left side of the dialogue box.

This bug make's the game unplayable and i didn't pay 45€ to get a game where i can't get to the end off.

Please search for a solution.

*EDIT:

The revalidating thing worked for me, i did this:

Deleted my deus ex human revolution .exe file

went to steam -> right mouse deus ex -> properties ->Local files ->Verify intergrity of game cache

I have the retail and installed it from the discs. Before I read about deleting the game exe and do a verify integrity I just removed all local files and installed it via steam instead and that solved the problem. I guess it's quicker to delete the exe and verify integrity instead.

How do I find the deus ex folders on my computer if i got the game off of steam? Problem still exists, I payed $60 for a game that worked before patch and now, after a path it is broken!!! :(

in your program files there will be a steam folder, then in there a steamapps\common folder. .check in there

jaycw2309,

Sorry for not noticing your earlier post. Your tip seems to solve the error! :) I deleted the dxhr.exe file from my "steam/steamapps/common/deus ex - human revolution/" folder and then did a re-verifying of the game cache from the properties menu on Deus Ex in Steam (right click the Deus Ex name and select properties, then select local files and check integrity on game cache (or something like that, got a different language)). The dxhr.exe was recreated and steam did some updating when I stated the game again. No problem with the dialogs anymore!!!

Thanks alot Jaycw2309! Now back to the game!

All you have to do mate is to right click on the game icon and choose the option run as administrator.Let me know if it works for you because the game used to crush on the dialogs once i have done this it works fine !!!

I bought this game during the steam summer deals and have the same problem of CTD whenever i choose the left dialog option. Yet i also have a problem where the game will not start with the current version so i have to use an older model, so the verify game cache will not work.
My drivers are all updated BTW.
So far i have not seen any one else with my problem.

I rolled BACK to a patch that had this issue because the newest patch won't even launch the game, for me. With the older .exe I can run the game until I select the left option in a chat, then it crashes to desktop. Deleting the .exe and verifying, thus receiving the newer .exe, prevents me from being able to launch the game at all.

A circle of farce. :|

So, do I understand it correctly that for a fortnight the Eidos staff would just ignore this thread? I mean, I bought this game last summer and waited for a year to play it, saving money to upgrade my PC to its standards and now, when the wait is finally over and I install it, the game just would not run. No explanation, no hint, no nothing. I take pain to go on the forums, dig and search, I try the aforementioned exe deliting and it still does not work. I find one smart guys suggestion to download a previous version of exe-file and the game finally runs but crashes at the dialogue. That's when I find this thread and see that... what? Do I see that Eidos and SE don't dive a dime for our problem since we've already paid the money? It sure looks like that.

Me too, same story. Steam sale(before the summer one, but it still reminded me that i had this)+ game crashing+older version of exe= no left dialogue boxes with mom in law and jenny the undercover cop.

This is crazy, these are hugely gamebreaking, and there is no big solution anywhere.

There is a solution. I tried everything before I decided to try the easiet thing which actually worked:

-> deleted *dll / *exe files
-> revalidated the cache
->played with steam offline
->reinstalled the game
-> found old deus ex exe file on internet and used it for some time

to no avail - my game kept on crashing on choosing the left dialogue option

What worked was updating by drivers - I have an NVIDIA graphic card and I read a thread about old drivers causing the game to crash - installed new drivers, deleted deus ex exe file, revalidated the cache and it works!!! :D
