View Full Version : Probs with Laser Designator
OK. When I try to use the laser designator, as specop or in chopper (the game obviously don't know the difference between one or the other, does it), I get kicked back out to windows immediately on pulling the trigger.
I had just b4 hand installed the newest ver of dx to fix another problem.
Does anyone else get this bug? Can anyone help me?
PS. If u got nothing constructive to say, then plz don't say nothing at all. This means u RN Malboeuf.

I suffer from this bug to,
It even happens when the AI use it!
I got Windows XP and DirectX 8.1, is your O/S the same?
Yes i have the same problem as amos, and:
1- i had 1.29 so i reinstalled all (1.00-1.20-1.30) two times.The second time i even used Regcleaner to clean the registry.I must say that i have the two separate files (1.30(10 MB) and weapons 1.3(12 MB)) but its suppose is the same as the Upgrade 1.3(32MB)
2-i have windows 98SE
320 MB ram
Sb Live Value
Tnt 16 MB (use CT 6892 creative drivers)
4 in 1 VIA drivers
3-I set the game in advanced preferences at minimum (as the help file says):no shadows, 1 ligths,etc..and 800x600x16 bit colour.
I think a lot of people have this problem and they simply dont use the laser, but plz if you have this problem write here and maybe we would be listen.
unholy chosen one

i think its in the faq that avon lady has made. its got something to do with the way you upgrade. i had the same problem. i had used the 1.27 and 1.29 betas. i started at 1.20. i had to reinstall and just do the 1.20 to 1.30 upgrade and it fixed it.
Suggestion - can someone post a control mission which we can all use and see if we have the same problem.

Search The FAQ (http://www.theavonlady.org/theofpfaq/) for "LTD". There's a bug, even if you've installed 1.30 correctly.
Also asked about this issue, got some logical problem solving tips but none of them really worked out for me so...http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard3/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif
With friendly greetings, Salvia

I had the same problem (got 1.29 before ) and uninstall+install did not seem to work -still crashed.
But today i got it working.So here is what i did:
i uninstalled OPF, renamed the Directory where opf was installed.
Then i startet regedit and deleted
Then installed patch 1.20 (NOT ultimate upgrade 1 or something else -you dont need it !!!!)
Then rebooztet again,
installed patch 1.30 and-guess what - rebootet again.
after that all my problems were gone.
it seems that not rebooiting after uninstall/every patch or install of ultimate upgrade1 befor patch 1.20 and/or not deleting the reg_key causes the crash when using lasertargeting/-bombs ...
didi it work for U ??? - I hope so .
I fixed the problem, I switched off Hardware Texture and Lighting in the OPF prefrences program
I choose Direct3D instead of Direct3D HW T&L
I reinstalled from scratch. I got latest dx and drivers for sound and video. I got 98se. Still not working.
I'll try the hwt&l sollution as soon as I get my game working again. I got some very minor scratches on my cd's edge, now the game won't start. f**king copy protection.
