Crashing on Ish

Postby HairyRussianDude » Fri Sep 22, 2017 10:00 pm

I recently started having a problem with my game crashing when Ish starts. It is usually a "bf1942 stopped working" but once in awhile I get booted back to the menu with a "cd key in use" message.
I have made no change to my game and it is only Ish that causes this.
Any ideas?

This old game certainly has its share of long-standing memory issues which will never be resolved, and can exhibit in some weird ways. Meaning its at least possible that even though it's "only Inshallah", the issue could be occurring just due to how memory is being used on the BF1942.EXE process in your particular machine.

But the more likely cause for "only Inshallah" and "started suddenly without any changes" would be that something has become corrupt about the Inshallah map files on this machine. Maybe a file system burp during a previous crash or shutdown, or maybe just an underlying disk surface / memory cell going flaky, etc.

If you happen to know how to generate SHA1 or MD5 checksums for files on Windows, I'd be happy to compare the checksum of yours against other clean Battlefield & DC installations. Just remember to checksum all occurrences of "*Inshallah*" anywhere under the ".\Battlefield 1942\mods\" directory structure, since the way the Battlefield 1942 maps work is that the maps in one mod can modify / be based on the maps from the base mod.

If it doesn't already make sense how to generate those checksums, its really just as easy to go ahead and re-install the game. Rather than sitting here writing a couple pages about how to single out and verify just a couple files, re-installing the game only takes a few minutes anyway. And will re-write not only the Inshallah maps but also anything else we're not yet suspecting as corrupted in the game.

For anyone who stumbles on this thread...

I tried downloading a fresh ish map. No dice.
Went with the fresh dc install which was painless. Life is good now!
