    OFP freezing when loading unoff. addons

    Hello, I'm having a strange error.
    The game, CWA/OFP version 1.99 -but it also happens with 1.96-, completely freezes whenever I try to load an unofficial addons in the editor or when I try to load a mission that uses unofficial addons. At that point I'm given no other option aside from rebooting my PC.

    It happened for the first time a week ago after some Windows XP updates. I had never experienced this before and it's really strange.
    I updated motherboard drivers (it's a ASRock K7VT6), my video card drivers (Radeon 9200 SE) and my sound card drivers (C-Media AC97, comes bundled with the motherboard) but that didn't seem to do the trick.

    My motherboard chip is based on VIA and I already tried to set the AGP to 4x.
    Reinstallation OFP has been tried too. My operative system is Windows XP Service Pack 3. To whom it may concern, I'm posting the "flashpoint.rpt" file:

    Edit: I noticed that the game freezes only with some addons.
    DKM's Rah-66 ''Comanche'' works fine and so do the Marine Assault Pack units.
    Still many other unofficial addons make the game freeze.

    Sometime there are some unofficial addons that really don't play well together with some mods (or even without) and may put a big strain on the performance that can freeze indeed the game.
    Additionally, using too many addons at once in a mod folder can result in the same problems

    Be sure to try the -nomap parameter in your OFP shortcut

    And when testing, you can try to play OFP windowed (see the startup parameter page linked) , so when OFP freeze on you, you can at least kills the window with ctrl+alt+ del without having to reboot your computer manually (as in full screen the ctrl+alt+del task manager panel may be invisible if OFP freeze.)

    Be sure to have no unofficial addon in your OFP or OFP\Res\ folder, and use only mod folders for unofficial addons.

    Other than testing addons one by one when you're experiencing freeze, i'm not sure there's an obvious way to locate the exact source of the problem.

    Even if I had already tried that, thank you for your advices, Sanctuary!
    Apparently, I solved the problem by reinstalling the motherboard drivers, and ticking off most of the options in the "API" section of the CATALYST Control Center. Sure, I lost some graphic details, but at least the game runs.

    I confess I hadn't noticed it.. It's strange considering that my screen resolution is set to 1024x768.
