SMPA60 Error

Question

toughluck007

Basically, every once in a while the game will freeze, then go black, then to desktop with an infamous SMPA60 Error, which is listed as un-recoverable and please restart the game and what not.. which I've done but it keeps happening

 

I have a few car mods and some ASI scripts, and my computer falls within correct specifications for the game, and I have all current drivers as well.

 

So what is this error, and how do you fix it?

 

SPECS:

CPU: C2D 2.53ghz (rated @6ghz)

GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 3870

RAM: 2GB Patriot Platinum DDR2

HDD: 200GB WD

MOBO: ASUS P5KPL-CM

OS: Windows 7 (build 7600) Ultimate x64

Remove the mods and the ASI scripts and see if it happens then. If it does not, then one or more of those mods is the problem. Install them one by one and keep checking the game to ensure it works fine.

I've only had this happen with a certain car mod. I've read online that it's caused by missing car mod file (labeled as 'extras') so that's most likely what it is.

 

When I had it my game would crash at a certain part of the map every single time, no matter what vehicle I was driving. Once the author updated his file it was fixed.

 

What car mods do you have?

the right question is, from what comes up this SAMP60 error ???

 

from which part of the game comes it ?

 

to locate the problem.

 

 

to say deleted all mod or car replaced is not the correct answer!

 

i am very angry to read this posts deleted, reinstall.

 

why ??

 

to locate the error, how comes up, is the right help !

 

to fix it directly, not complete reinstall or else.

 

sorry for my bad english i am a german.

I believe it either has to do with modding or with windows live.

 

That windows live does keep irritating me.. random strangers saying they wanna play...

I wish they had put an option in it that automatically puts me in offline mode so iam not visible..

 

To me that windows live seems like a heaven for hackers... Everybody connected and busy as hell cool.gif

 

But hey i could be wrong... Like those commercial planes on 911....

 

There were no commercial planes on 911 moto_whistle.gif

How the f*ck can we know what mods have you installed? And even if we knew, how can we know which file or maybe setting on your machine causes this? You wanted advices, you got them. If you don't like them, well tough.

I got this error to...

But the funny thing is, that gta iv was just installed and patched, no mods.

Error appears very often... can't run the game for more than 5 minutes.

I'm not sure if this is gonna be relevant as i used to get this after adding car models to cars at save locations. I would be fine until I drove the new imported model to/ near the save point, or try to drive it away from the save point. What you can do

1. delete the save and start again OR

2. find out what car(s) are causing the error, replace the car with the original car (the car you drove to the save point and saved there (this may not be the GTA4 original)), load up the save and move the car out of save point, save again. You can now Import the car again and hopefully save it without any problems. From my experience it seems YOU CANNOT MOD A CAR IF IT'S AT A SAVE POINT!

I don't bother saving cars anymore and have no more problems.

Good info. Basically this error is tied with savegames and modding. At least in most cases.

ok, time to bring some input from me as well >.<

 

I get this bug as well, ONLY in multiplayer (the SMPA code makes me think of MP => MultiPlayer, where the bug occurs to me)

 

it happened three times already, mostly after like 10 mins online play :s I hate it, can't resolve it (cause i'm a noob tounge.gif)

 

I DO NOT HAVE MODS! clean install smile.gif

 

Grtz, hope it helps :s

There is a theory that states other people mods will cause crashes in multiplayer confused.gif

yeah was thinking that..You never get it in SP, but do in MP? So is it anyone with mods or is it someone who gets an SMPA60 error in SP who plays on MP? Can you play MP if you get this error in SP? and what are the effects? Do i put this error back in my game and get online and find out? haha.. tempting devil.gif

Incorrectly modded cars cause this usually.

You don't have any mods? Apparently, other people mods in multiplayer can cause this issue as well.

yes im bumping blah blah...

 

 

I solved this before, i had a modded car in another game, saved and parked infront of my safehouse

 

In my clean game, i would get SMPA60 randomly after playing a lil bit, i quickly removed the car from the spot, saved, quit, and played again, and i didn't have spma60 since

I have been getting this error just recently a few weeks ago actually.

It usually happens when i get to the part in Liberty "The Triangle"

And i go to a certain point there (By the LCPD Themed Donut Shop) Then when i'm driving or shooting cops or something and they come rolling in with cars (Bohan Police District Modded) Then after i shoot them with a few rockets i walk a few then it minimizes and says: GTAIV FATAL ERROR: SMPA60 -- Please Restart the Game (Or please reboot your System) This happens to me when i'm in Singleplayer (I haven't tried MP Yet) So most people are getting this from an MP, That may be because you're modded files or whatever are interfearing.

But i'm getting this in Singleplayer, it happens after a few minutes or an hour, of play (Or when it gets overloaded or whatever causes SMPA60) But it sometimes has a different error away from "The Triangle" When i'm selecting a certain car for LCPD:FR and sometimes randomly, The other error was something like this

GTA IV FATAL ERROR: RESC10 -- Please Reboot your System (OR Out of Video Memory) (OR SMPA60)

 

Sorry about the long post ;)

But i'm sooo mad now i'm tired of rocketing cops and getting RESC10s or SMPA60s

:r*::r*::r*::r*::r*::r*: GRRR!!!
