Hopefully a not too stupid question - miseryguts - 05-03-2013 12:29 PM

I'm trying to play an iso of Daxter on the latest Windows build, but my system completely freezes (can't even ctrl/alt/delete) when i load the game.
What am i doing wrong..?

Thanks.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
i7 920 DO @ 4.4GHz
2x GTX 670 Windforce 3x
8GB Corsair DDR3

Do you have a LOG to show?

Ctrl+L

Thanks.. apparently it's a 'bogus iso' which is odd as it's my own game.
Is there a specific format the games have to be to work..?

Try to upload the image somewhere like imageshack and add it with "Insert Image" option.

you have memory leak if the iso appears as 'bogus'.I have the same problem with toy story 3 iso and windows 8 and system is crawiling whenever i load it & memory load can reach 2.5 gb

Edit - To the opening poster.

If you have previously managed to boot and play a game in Windows 7, can you please tell me which exact revision you're using. Thanks. Smile

I've been running PPSSPP since day one on Windows 7 x64 and I haven't occured an issue like that one.
The issue is something else.

This is good news for me, there is hope Heart

I've never been able to boot a game in Windows 7. I must be doing something wrong, or there is something else wrong. I've got access to both a PC and laptop running Windows 7 and it works on neither of them. Undecided

Check what those PCs have in common from hardware to software. Try a fresh installation of Windows too. I bet there is something wrong on the software side.


RE: Hopefully a not too stupid question - Dwightyone - 05-03-2013 06:23 PM

They don't share the same hardware, but do share some of the same software. Now I know someone else has it working on Windows 7 I'll dig deeper to get to the root of the problem. Ok, thanks. Smile

Works fine for my 64-bit Win7 when it crashes on yours is there any warning prompt.
There is a way to create a crash log for a program in windows that might help in figuring out what is happening. I can't remember the exact steps but there should be a tutorial somewhere on the web.

PPSSPP boot up then within five seconds "PPSSPP has stopped working"

It says it's BEX Event problem and so on, I have been through procedures to solve it before but gave up after staying up for seven days and seven nights trying. I think at that final point if PPSSPP had booted up and worked and said to me "Look, I now work, I'm a good boy really" I would have deleted it out of revenge. Big Grin

Can you try something? Try to run it on Windows XP Service Pack 3 and Windows Server 2008 (Service Pack 1) and if it returns the same error then its a software or driver error.
Give me also the full specs of your setups.
