Game Crashing upon starting 'An Old Friend'


Recommended Posts


Hello GTAForums community:


I am hoping to somehow fix the following issue: I have a nearly done Starter Save project. Now, today I was bored and decided to make a copy and play some of the storyline missions. Upon stepping in the marker to start the mission/cutscene 'An Old Friend' the game just freezes. I've tried changing Tommy's outfit, deleting 'gta_vc.set', toggling on/off Frame Limiter, and none of it works


The pointer for the mission is also glitched. Instead of being a square, indicating it's at the same ground level as Tommy, it's a downwards pointing triangle, as if the marker was underground. I have not installed any mods nor modified main.scm. I have, however, modified carcols.dat, handling.cfg, and vehicle spawns (the latter through a Save File editor). I don't think that's a problem, since not only I've taken precautions but also those kinds of modifications never gave me any trouble. Even so, I tried replacing the original handling and carcols and didn't fix anything. Starting a new game returned the cutscene playing normally, which means it has to be a problem within the savefile. EDIT: Forgot to mention, I also modified most gang vehicles and weapons


Attempting to start the mission returns an unhandled exception c0000005 at memory address 00409f1e


Here is the save: http://gtasnp.com/RKCjkV


I hope somebody can help me soon and that I don't have to redo the savefile :)


EDIT: Operating system...

  • Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ @ 2 GHz
  • 3 GB RAM
  • Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit, Service Pack 1
  • DirectX version 9.0 Build 0904
  • Video, audio cards unknown

Did you modify the gangs' vehicle indexes?

Yes, I forgot to mention that. I also modified their weapons.

Did you modify them using a save editor? The data is malformed, causing the game to crash when the cutscene wants to load. You can fix it by setting the gangs' vehicles through CLEO.

Yes, it was with a save editor


Ok, will try that when I have time and report back. Thank you
