View Full Version : Fatal crash in The Monstrum Crimescene

13th Jul 2003, 14:10
I have a serious problem here... And i have recreated it severel times with the same result. Game freeses and my PC stops respondign and i have to press the reset button to get anywhere.

I happens the same place every time. I'm in The Monstrum Crimescene and i've just used Buchards keys on the red door leading to a brief loading. After the loading i am at the base of a concrete stair. As long as i stand still nothing happens but as soon as i begin to move forward an around the corner the game freeses. The sound doesn't stop for some time but i am unable to do anything but pressing the reset button.

I would really like to know if anyone else have experienced this or anything like it and i would particulary like to hear a solution. I really like the story and it annoys me not being able to progress futher.

My specs (if you should need them)

AMD XP1700+
soltek D-RV2 mobo
Hercules Muse DVD 5.1
Radeon 9700
768Mb PC2100

All drivers are up to date and the game is patched.

I had exactly the same problem (I think it must be something to do with the Radeon 9700 and the dubious programming of that particular door).

The only way I could figure out how to get past there was to stand facing the wall opposite the door, and do a number of sideways flips to the left up the steps.

Sometimes it crashed, but eventually I got this to work.

Hope this helps.

I got past the point late last night (CET).

But I found something very close to yours to get past the point. The turn is a left turn but by turning lara right until she faces the right way there's no problem. It happened by mistake and i got very surprised. So surprised i loaded the game to chek if it still crahsed when turning left. It did.

So yeah. Had I had more patience your post would defenitly had helped me ;)

So anyone outthere with the same problem. This is your solution.

dunno why but the same $H!T happens to me.

XP 2100+
A7v133 (KT133A)
256 PC133MB
9500 128MB

PS: i have seen other glitches like laras leggs disapearing, untextured walls and objects, and lara jumping ocasionaly(sometimes on inconvenient places)

PS2: i realy hate the the new aim and control stuff, almost impossible to kill red ghost with it on my analog gamepad

If you have these settings on your video card.

Antialiasing and Anisotropic

Crank them both up to 8X

i tried to reduce all details to absolute minimum and it worked

i was using all in 16 bit ,software, just the essential.

ps: the turn right trick didnt worked for me, even with lara crouched, i supode the erroe is because of the sky or an object

I'm having the same problem in Wrath of the Beast! As soon as the statue starts to crumble....it freezes! I have to restart my computer. Soooo annoying! I think I've tried just about everything. They should have a little "pulling out hair" icon! There isn't one that's suitable for what I'm feeling right now!
