After much diggin around I've found a way to give some information from the .dmp files that the game creates when it crashes.

Does anyone here know how to read these things? It looks as though there's a problem with the core.dll.

This dump file has an exception of interest stored in it.
The stored exception information can be accessed via .ecxr.

Hi there!

Glad you give it another chance. I think you are going a little bit far with the dump-file. No one i know has ever looked at them, so I guess we can´t help you with that.

First of all: Yes, Cliffs of Dover is a buggy game. Everyone in the community knows that it was released way to early, and even the developers themselfes are aware of that and are not happy with it. We don´t have an official statement, but the community suspects, that it was a management-decision to release the game that early. The Developers itself for sure knew in what state the game was at it´s release.
So... shit happens, no one can change that now... But:

Concerning your problem:

1. Can you please confirm that you deleted the cache after reinstalling the game? Again, this is very important! If you don´t do this, you probably will never get the game running...!

2. I suggest you try this or anything similiar for windows XP. it is from another forum member:

"Hey Guys, Got 2 things worked like a charm, no stutters , no slide show for ati an nvidea users .

Win7 USERS , Go into control panel to Programs an Features Go into Microsoft. NET Framework 4 Client Profile. double click on it , An repair it , After repair it will ask restart do it .

Then go to C PROGRAM FILES X86 , Then Steam Then Steamapps, Then common . il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover Then redist Then go into DirectX Folder , Scroll down til you see When you see DXSETUP Double click on it , an run it!!

For they guys that did this , THE CHEERING SECTION IS OUT, All of us had the same results. NO SLIDE SHOW NOT A STUTTER. Even with 3 spits an 7 or 8 109s at 1000 feet above the the 3 base close together north of the French point ( our normal slide show, Repeated 3 times , Stayed hard on 60 fps an high 75 my vsync on all setting high an original , For the first time since i bought this game , it was amazing!!! If this helps tell others ( for me an several others who did this ) All i can say is WOW !!!"

If this doesn´t help, I fear that i have no other ideas that might help you...

Good luck!

It's something related to the video mode. After 100% it changes the resolution etc.

Try looking at your video config in the game, maybe you have a wrong resolution or you have window mode enabled (or something).

Also, since you installed the beta by mistake, I would competely remove the 1C folder from "my documents" so no ini file remains with a possible wrong config on it.

Also, if you are using an ATI-Graphics card, delete the ubisoft-logo-film in the begining. It´s called logo.wmv and you can find it in the game-files...

Thanks so much peeps.

Short of re-installing windows, i did everything to flatten my pc- restore to last monday, verify windows files, error checked both partitions and de-fragged, cleared registry and defraged registry. Now i am going to re-install steam and the game and see if I have any luck. I had a suspicion that the game or steam was referencing a corrupt file or registry entry that was not being uninstalled along with the rest of the game, which was making each re-install attempt a futile endeavour. We shall see. In the meantime i got hold of 1946 and am in the process of applying mods and stuff until I can get the other one to work!
