Author Topic: Bluescreen at startup  (Read 917 times)

I got a FS2 copy from steam and after importing some .reg file, which the steam installer forgot (:hopping:) it runs just fine.

However, I'd like to have the fancy graphics of fs2_open and can't manage it to start. I basically choose the .exe via "browse..." (2.7.0, latest recommended build), press run and then the pc slows down to a degree that i have a mouse cursor update every 3 seconds and after a few seconds i get a blue screen and restart. It's the first time I ever encountered blue screens on this pc. I followed instructions to get a fs2_open.log:

Initializing OpenAL...
  OpenAL Vendor     : Creative Labs Inc.
  OpenAL Renderer   : SB X-Fi Audio [C000]
  OpenAL Version    : OpenAL version 1.1

  Found extension "ALC_EXT_EFX".

Is OpenAL/my x-fi soundcard the problem here? I assumed that the "ALC_EXT_EFX" has something to do witch the alchemy drivers of my soundcard, which is why I uninstalled them. It didn't change anything though.

OpenAL is installed, graphics card is a gtx 660ti with newest nvidia drivers. Any help is appreciated  :nervous:

It certainly looks like the soundcard is the issue here.

Try FSO 3.7.2 RC5.
3.7.0 is not compatible with mediavps_2014.

This.  But that is probably not your BSOD issue, the next one probably is, so try that too:
