OLD--Official Bug List with Solutions

Recommended Posts

Johnny The Homicidal Maniac
By Marcocom

the UNHANDLED EXCEPTION error is a long time bug related to the 'MILES2D/3D" Sound code thats used in GTA3 (also hitman2, tribes2 and any other game where the developers thought it would be slick to just plug in 3rd party sound code instead of writing their own custom)

 

unfortunately the bug occurs when users run the sound code in EAX (when using Creative drivers that have OpenAL acceleration which was released after the MILES2D code was released - but MILES never got patched.), so simply change it to DirectSound mode or software mode and you will no longer see the bug or get the crash.

DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS THAN bug can also be attributed to this as well.  it sucks and im glad to say that no one uses the MILES code anymore. it had its time and will not be back.

 

Where can i change this?

Ive have an onboard soundcard..

 

Its about this popping up when i try to start the game..

Unhandled exception: c0000005

At address:     0048944cc

Try to set your soundoption to 3D Software then it should find the best one for you

Game works flawlessly for me, except for one very annoying thing:

Everytime I try to load a saved game, I get an "Unhandled Exception c0000005" (Guess they have no other Code) "at adress 00497316" and the game crashes... Furthermore I can only use one of the 8 Saveslots, though the file saved in another slot shows up in the folder in "My Documents".

 

I am using Win XP Pro, newest Nvidia Drivers...

 

Please help, thanks in advance.

Ok first check this out:

I've got XP aswell but I've got a Sound Blaster Live Value so it may not work but give it a shot. I've got a little icon called AudioHQ where I can chose between SoundFonts, Auto EAX, EAX Control Panel etc. Now chose the EAX Control Panel and press Options. Now your computer should have choosed your correct Soundcard and if it hasn't then I'm lost?

 

Otherwise go to your controlpanel, right? And chose the Sound-thing and go check if it has choosen your correct soundcard all the way through, ok?

If it has then please tell me and I'll try and figure something out  :)

I'm also getting:

 

Unhandled exception: c0000005

At address: 715c4d09

 

when I start a new or saved game.

 

I have deleted the gta set file, set the sound option to dsound software emulation, reinstalled the game, and system restored to a time before the problem existed. But the game still crashes. This started last night outta of nowhere.  :/  :angry:

 

***UPDATE*** I re-read Johnny's first post on this page and changed my sound setting to Rad 3D software support(Or whatever it's called). The game loads fine now.  :colgate:

I have another problem with sound though. From the beginning:

 

When I got this game Tuesday, the game played fine with Antialiasing off, so I turned AA(2x) and AF(2x) on. The game played fine for a few seconds then the sound started to garbled. I updated my on-board sound drivers, used different sound settings in the game but the sound would still garbling. Being fed up with the problem a bought a new sound card (Sound Blaster 521). Even with this new card the sound will still garble only when AA is on. Yes, I've have the latest sound and video drivers, and I've tried different sound options in the game.

 

Pc specs:

Processor: Intel Celeron 1.1 GHz

OS: Windows XP Home Edition sp1

Memory: 256 MB SDRAM PC133

Video: Geforce 4 Ti4200 64MB

Audio: CREATIVE LABS SoundBlaster® PCI 512

Monitor: 19in Samsung 191t LCD display.

 

Any ideas?  :/

Ok i have a problem where i start a new game, but when its playing the Macro's Bistro, Liberty City 1986 video, it shows the people talking for about 2 seconds, then either the textures turn white, then the video stops and my comp restarts by itself, or it goes for a couple seconds, the video stops all together and the sound keeps going. Ive tried just skipping all the videos but then my computer restarts anyways. I got a GeForce 4 Ti 4800. PLEASE HELP ME IM GOING NUTS! IM GONNA KILL MYSELF!!! AHHHH :sui:

Are there any fixes for the problem with mouse sensitivity?  Many others have reported the problem where the mouse's up-down axis is ultra sensitive but moving left to right is normal.   I have this problem and it's very difficult to aim.  I really hope this one doesn't get ignored by take2.

I dunno, I just assume be safe and stay with GF4 for compatibility and performance.  they will still be going down in price more, although 150 bucks for a GF4 4200 128 mb doesnt sound bad at all     :D

grrr!! nope.. I've even tried the new 1.1 patch and still hasn't fixed the problem..

When I'm playing the game, the instructions that appear at the bottom of the screen when you're on a mission don't appear; they just keep flashing and so i can't read them.. also the text in the menu flashes while i move the mouse!

it's the same with the hints & tips box that appears at the beginning and the clock.

If anyone has these same problems, let me know.. we have to sort this out!!

 

here's my pc specs btw, before you all start saying my pc is cwap cwap mega cwap...  :/

 

OS: Windows XP Pro

CPU : AMD Duron 1200MHz

RAM : 192 MB RAM

Graphics : 64 MB RAM (SiS 730s)

Hard Disk 1 : 40 GB

Hard Disk 2 : 20 GB

WAJ   I am not sure, but your problem might be that you have an AMD duron...  the cpu cache is a lot lower than that of the XP processors.    Just a thought...

Did you try a different mouse?  If you don't have one, buy one and try it...you can always return it for a refund.

hmmm I was thinking that too but my processor does meet the minimum requirements, which is an AMD Duron 1.2GHz! so I guess they tested it on the same thing.

The game runs fine.. I just have to guess what to do in missions because there's no instructions!

My game ran fine for days ... until today.

 

I'm 20% done. I just bought the Print Shop and saved there after completing the Spilling the Beans mission which I did last night. Today when I load up, the load bar fills all the way, and then I hear a ping noise like the game should start but it doesn't.

 

I get an Unhandled Exception Error c000...0005 @

 

Address 004c3ff7

 

I just finished that Spilling The Beans which I found annoying, and would rather not do again either. Is there a way around that? The other saves don't seem to be affected by this. Is it something specific to the Print Shop perhaps?

 

EDIT

 

Changing the sound hardware did nothing, by the way. Argh.
