Clod Blitz doesn't start

Recommended Posts

Clicking on the application (default shortcut and launcher64 in file directory) does nothing and the process just dies after a couple of seconds.

 

I have installed the redistributables and verified game cache.

When i click play the process launches for 2 seconds and dies. Nothing happens at all. When steam isn't already running, it launches steam, but also doesn't do anything.

And you guys renamed the 1csoft folder in mydocuments if you had the existing game already? Also, once you installed Blitz, did you run from steam and did steam launch the "initial set up" screen before launching into the Blitz logo and starting the game? 

 

Do you have any crash logs?

I did not have previous CLoD on this computer so no folder to rename.

 

I don't think steam did run initial setup, which is why the first thing i did was run all the redistributables (same thing as far as i'm aware, as i had this prob with other games and it fixed it). I never get into any application, nothing launches at all, just 2 secs of mouse timer and process and nothing.

 

I ran from steam default shortcut first, and as i said above from launcher64 in directory, and also tried as admin and nothing.

 

 

I have logs in "cppcrash" but when i open in notepad its all ascii bollocks.

Hello Snacko and eRON

 

Regarding anyone having an issue with crashes:

 

For initial diagnostics it is best to post the full crash error you see come up.

 

Some of these errors are easily linkable to a cause.

For example in the error you might see the following:

The "BadImageFormatException" is because something is running at 32 bits (either windows or an overlay running in the background).

The "PermissionDeniedException" is due to not having permissions to read or write some file. Most likely due to not running the game as an Admin, or previously having created the Documents folder as an Admin and not doing it for the 4.5 install.

 

We recommend those who are having problems to enable the logfile.

 

This is done in the conf.ini file in your Documents/1C SoftClub/il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover/ folder.

 

[Console]

  IP=20001
  UseStartLog=1
  WRAP=1
  PAUSE=1
  HISTORY=1024
  HISTORYCMD=1024
  PAGE=20
  LOG=1
  LOGTIME=1
  LOAD=console.cmd
  SAVE=console.cmd
  LOGFILE=log.txt
  LOGKEEP=1

 

This keeps a record of the game operation in a file called:  log.txt

 

When you have a problem, open the log file, look at what is there and post it in the technical assistance forum.

Hello exlax

 

Your video card is quite old, and may not be DX 11 compliant... can you confirm it does run DX 11?

 

How much in the way of RAM do you have... is it quite old as well?

 

Because many of the Crashes are related to defective or insufficient RAM.

Radeon RX 480 is quite old? It supports DX 12 and just came out last year. I have 16 gigs of ram and I5 4690. I can run IL2 at max settings with 120 framerate so I would think my system is more than capable. I rebooted to make sure nothing else was running and got the same results.

My apologies, I thought your post had a typo and your card was a GTX 480.

 

My first suggestion is you look at this thread:

 

https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/32903-suggestions-those-crash-problems/

 

Make sure the Steam overlay is off, make sure your anti-virus is not stopping the game, make sure there are no 32 bit programs being activated.

 

Follow the directions, get your crash log file and post the results.

 

We are looking at these problems carefully and would like to have the crash logs of as many people as possible.

 

The issues are not your system, they are a function of some program running in the background... that to be determined.

I don't understand something, TF team didn't check this before releasing the 4.5 ??

 

I didn't fly for many years with CoD and was ready to give a new try... GREAT START :/

Try unplugging your jostick and start the game! There is a theory it is overloaded USB ports. Do you have an externally powered USB hub you can use?

I had a usb hub with one controller and my trackir headset plugged in.  I unplugged the usb hub at the hub and unplugged it's power.  Rebooted and tried Blitz.  Didn't help me either.  I'm not going to go unplug all of my usb's for a game.  Too hard to reach, remember where they are all plugged in.

 

I have the following usb devices:

Saitek x55 Stick

Saitek x55 Throttle

CH Pedals

Helicopter Collective

Thrustmaster T300rs wheel

XBox game controller (wireless)

2 mice (wireless)

1 keyboard (wireless)

TrackIR

Oculus Rift

 

I have an 850watt ps, and never had any games or any software have a problem because of this.

I had it stuck at the blitz logo bit, I revalidated the files in steam and it worked fine. Only problem for me is that FPS is waaaaaay down on 4.3. Alas it's unplayable :(

Other issue is force feedback problems still exist, and when I go to a menu screen the stick slams to the right at full force.

 

Shame, I liked playing 4.3 and the scenery looks much nicer now.

Ok, I did homework and research. I found "problem and workaround" ("..." because I can't understand why IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover Blitz need December 12, 2017—KB4054518 (Monthly Rollup) to work).
I installed windows6.1-kb4054518-x64 and game start and working excellent. Just one thing, why game still change my windows color shame at the time of start? Modern game should no do it. I just checked few more things. I uninstalled kb4054518 and game still working, then I restored my previous system from image without kb4054518 and game crashed again. So it is little strange for me.
 
Solution not working for long term!!!
After few system restarts problem comeback to the "normal" - crash at start...

In link two zip with my 1C SoftClub (full) folders from My Documents.
First is before installation kb4054518 - game crashed on startup, second after installtion kb4054518 - game start and working without problem at max settings but change windows 7 color shame: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/njwri1oijkcbx49/AAA7r2hB_zbkjOVfVyVERMTEa?dl=0

Looks like nobody care. :(

 

I don't have joystick pluged in at all and my windows is 64bit.

Do you have an updated version of windows?

Can you create a new steam profile and see if it works.

Do you run the game as an aministrator?

MSI Afterburner is my culprit.

Afterburner starts up on windows startup for me. 

I discovered this was causing the crash because sometimes Afterburner delays in starting. It just so happened that I launched Blitz before Afterburner started, and it launched fine. Now I just launch Blitz first and the problem is solved.

Have you guys tried to start Steam in offline mode? That did it for me (and is actually the only way I can start Blitz).

Windows is updatet regulary.

Same when I run it normaly or as admin.

I even made clean install several time, all 1Cgame profile in Document was deletet to have clean first time start.

 

Previous game was running good but it is uninstalled now.

 

I don't know what to do anymore but I remeber CloD was having similar problems in tha past but I don't remeber now what we was do to run.

Tried shutting down Afterburner and running Steam in Offline mode.  Also closed every app in my SysTray that I could.  And turned off my Kaspersky Internet Suite.  No good...

Yes, I even ran steam as admin to install blitz. Then ran blitz as admin to create a new my documents game folder. And verified the game. Also made sure the my documents game folder didn't exist before all this..

Wormeaten and snacko, can you post your complete specs? Maybe there is a similarity between you both. I know you probably have posted them somewhere but I'd appreciate it.
