Unhappy Runtime error #3 (trap), ATI HD 4870

Hello,

I received my copy of Theatre of War (kalypso) from play.com couple of days ago, but I still have not been able to get it running.

I have the infamous "Runtime error #3 (trap)" problem.

I have tried kalypso version installed directly from the dvd without any patching, then I installed "uber-patch" but I still got the same error.

I read troubleshooting guide from:
http://www.battlefront.com/index.php...1103&Itemid=30

I have latest drivers (catalyst 8. for my video card (ATI HD 4870).
My video card should be powerful enough to run the game.

I tried vista 32bit and xp 32bit, both give me the same error from the start. (no title videos or nothing) I tried renaming title.avi but no help.

Anisotropic filtering is set to "Use application settings."

I have dual display configuration, but I have disabled the second display.

What else is there for me to do or try?

My video card is club 3d ati hd 4870 512MB
My processor is intel E5420
I have 4GB of ram.

Thanks in advance,
Petri

Default logging

Is there a possibility to increase logging level with a startup parameter so I could see what is the problem?

I've answered you in BF forums - problem is in driver OpenGL support.

Thumbs up Solved

CASE SOLVED

I downloaded both catalyst 8.7 and catalyst 8.9 (beta).

Then I extracted the installation package with 7zip so that I could get my hands on on atioglxx.dl_.

Notice: package names may differ if you have different os. Mine is vista 32bit.

catalyst 8.7 - atioglxx.dll version 6.14.10.7769 instructions follow)
1)extract the executable with 7zip or rar.
2)expand $OUTDIR/atioglxx.dl_ with expand

Code:
C:\Temp\8-7_vista32_dd_65998\$OUTDIR>expand atioglxx.dl_ atioglxx.dll
Microsoft (R) File Expansion Utility  Version 6.0.6001.18000
Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Expanding atioglxx.dl_ to atioglxx.dll.
atioglxx.dl_: 4236106 bytes expanded to 9306112 bytes, 119% increase.
3) copy atioglxx.dll to theatre of war root directory (same as tow.exe)
4) works like a charm

catalyst 8.9 - atioglxx.dll version 6.14.10.7976 instructions follow)
1) extract vista_080820a-068929C-ATI.zip
2) expand atioglxx.dl_ with expand

Code:
C:\Temp\vista_080820a-068929C-ATI\080820a-068929C-ATI\Packages\Drivers\Display\LH_INF\B_68405>expand atioglxx.dl_ atioglxx.dll
Microsoft (R) File Expansion Utility  Version 6.0.6001.18000
Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Expanding atioglxx.dl_ to atioglxx.dll.
atioglxx.dl_: 4421707 bytes expanded to 9838592 bytes, 122% increase.
3) copy atioglxx.dll to theatre of war root directory (same as tow.exe)
4) works like a charm

Notice: you do not need to INSTALL catalyst 8.7 or 8.9, just copy the dll to the tow directory.

This helps with catalyst 8.8 which has broken opengl implementation.


BTW:
I am volunteering for ToW2 hardware/gameplay beta testing group

I think it would be nice if you would add this to your troubleshooting guide. Not as "supported troubleshooting instructions" but more like a hint for experienced users.
