Cannot launch on Win7 since patch 1.4.5 with GOG.

Post by ccxvii » Thu Jan 09, 2020 12:54 pm

Gladius crashes on launch, and then the ErrorReporter also crashes recursively throwing up more and more dialogs until my system runs out of memory. If I delete ErrorReporter.exe I only get one crash dialog, so I can keep using my system.

This is the backtrace from the Gladius.log

@ ccxvii

Set the Nvidia GPU as the preferred graphic processor for the game. You can do this via the Nvidia Control Panel. Check the link below for on how to do this:

There is no option to select a "preferred graphic processor" in the nVidia control panel. I only see options to set antialiasing, etc. I only have one GPU on the system (a Geforce GTX 960).

Can you attach a DxDiag report file?

How to get a DxDiag report file:

1. Click on "START" (on Windows 8/10 press “Windows key” and the “R” key at the same time)
2. Click "run" (skip this step on Windows 8/10)
3. Type in "dxdiag" and click "OK"
4. Check through the tabs and perform all tests
5. Click "Save all Information..." and save the text file to a location of your choice
6. Attach the file to your message

As you can see in the Gladius log file, the game stills find traces of the original Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 in your Windows.
These can cause software conflicts.
Try fully uninstalling the HD4000 by using a 3rd party program:

1. Download and install program DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller)
https://www.wagnardsoft.com/
2. Reboot Windows in safe mode
3. Run DDU and check if you can select the Intel graphic chip. If so tick option "clean and restart".

I downloaded the latest update 1.4.5.1 from GOG and now I can launch Gladius again.
