View Full Version : multiplayer crashes my system
01-22-2001, 10:30 PM
Everything works on my system well except when I try to join a session. As soon as I give the IP and start a search, the computer crashes with error messages and I have to restart the system.

What kind of error messages?

Jim, I get Error: DPNERR_INVALIDDEVICEADDRESS
line 746 (error enumerating Direct Play Games
Nothing works that, have to restart system.

I get these errors:
"DirectPlay Sample: Unable to join game"
Also sometimes "Line 1083" instead of "Line 1194"
These happens after usually one minute into the multiplayer game.
It happens less often when I connect to the Internet using my modem instead of High Speed Internet.
The computer crashes often ( black screen, sounds keep going, have to do a hard reset ) when going to fullscreen mode ( Only in multiplayer mode, so I don't know if it's driver problems... Win98SE, VooDoo3 3000, latest drivers, SBLive! Value, latest drivers ).
Hope this will help resolve the small multiplayer bugs,

Make sure you can run the Simple Chat sample application that comes with G2.
Your bugs have been fixed and are being tested.

Jim, I tried the "chat peer" sample on the G2 control panel and after I keyed in a friend's IP and hit "enter" to search, it immediately crashed with this: ERROE:0E:0028:075102DB .
Hard reboot, tried again, same result. Hard reboot pull up the DxDiagnostic Tool, went to the network page saw all "OK" for the registered Direct Play Service providers. Hit "Test Direct Play" button, Created a new session had a buddy join my session, no problem chatting. Had my buddy set up a host session, I joined, chatted, no problem.
Seems I can use DirectX's Direct Play function, but can't use the Real Flight Chat Peer function. I saw the note that if one of the samples fails, it might be a bad video or sound card driver problem. Creative says I have the latest drivers for my GeForce2 MX (PCI). I'll try to check the sound card drivers.
