unhandled exception

Question

Acheron

Hi,

 

what happened do far...

 

bought GTA3 for small money (only 10 Euro...)

installed game

started and receveived error c0000005 005bf949

 

checked the forum - read gta3 fixes

downloaded patch 1.1

patched, received error unkown version

deinstalled

installed

patched error...

 

read take2 technical help

deinstalled

run regseek (cleaning tool)

run regedit - searchet for gta3 - deleted all lines with gta3

installed

patched error...

 

As I understood, this is a DX problem?

I installed DX9.0c (together with SilentHunter3, before GTA3 - no probs)

DirectX Version 4.09.00.0904 (named)

tried Reinstall DX9.0c from Sh3 disc, but i think DX only checks and soent do a reinstall

 

Hardware:

Ordinary machine (no tuning), 512 mb ram, ATI Radeon9600Pro (low settings),

I dont have the newest GPU driver installed (CATALYST™ Version 05.3),

but the game is old enough, that i dont expect fixes from that side.

Driver runs fine with all other applications, and i learned my lesson about touching

a running system...

 

So, what can i do?

Is my fresh bought game already patched?

I found in the *.ini 2x ver 1.0 so i guess no...

Is there a better way to clean the reg, the way i did?

 

Thanks, and my regards...

SCREEECH! The patch doesn't sort out anything that prevented the game from running. So installing the patch is like trying to address your hunger by buying a pair of pants. Let's stick to addressing THE PROBLEM.

 

The only time I know of that the patch will tell you unknown version is if you're using a no-CD EXE. Normally that wouldn't matter because as stated, the patch won't help you. But since you didn't mention using a no-CD patch version but DID mention buying it, my guess is that you bought some 2nd hand burned version of the game. If R* didn't release it and it doesn't work, you're at the whim of the person you purchased it from. Only THEY will know what's on the disc. Not R* and certainly not us.

 

If there's been a miscommunication, feel free to clear it up.

Hello Demarest,

 

first, thank you for instant reply.

 

Second, i just told what i did.

Of cause i didn´t await the all curing patch, but at least

i would give it a try. And i read in the Gta3 fixes this:

 

This is the offcial patch from Rockstar:Supposed to fix the following problems:

-Exception error after blue Rockstar load screen fixed.

 

so far the patch...

 

Third, i brought the game first hand from the SaturnHansa/MediaMarket group.

Don´t know, if you know them - but they are first supplier of electronics in

germany, where i live. I hope the company doesnt sell illegal copies.

 

So, do you have any suggestions what i can do?

And, is it true that this error occurs with directX?

 

Thank you for your patience.

I see. Well I just learned something colgate.gif

 

You'll know if you purchased a retail copy. If it came from a reputable vendor, then chances are pretty good.

 

For a fresh install of a legit GTA3 to not accept the patch, that might tell us the problem. You've installed twice, so maybe you got a bad disc? Try exchanging it. The patch should work straightaway.
