    [Fixed?] Gangscape client crashing fullscreen mode

    by DarkShado » Sun Jan 08, 2017 8:57 am

    Hi so how do you get the Gangscape client to go in full screen mode?

    What the heck this is a private server everyone should be able
    to play in full screen mode.

    I am running Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) SP1 8 GB RAM
    Intel Core2 Duo E8400 3.00 GHZ

    Running Java Version 8 update 111 which according to
    the Java website is the latest version of the Java Runtime
    Environment (JRE) at this time.


    https://java.com/en/download/

    Now I just tried twice to put the client into full screen mode when
    I was in game and the client just crashed twice on me.

    Any idea what the heck is going on here?

    And yes I have the latest drivers as well for my video card that
    was already checked. I am running a AMD Radeon HD 7700 series
    graphics card. Running in 1920x1080 for the desktop resolution.

    It is not giving me any kind of error on the screen either it just crashes
    back to my desktop again.

    Now it did create a few log files though in my Gangscape client folder
    these logs can be seen bellow

    https://file.io/pMgGux
    https://file.io/oBa7ci
    https://file.io/SvU8QG

    hopefully these logs can help you figure out why the client is crashing.

    To get it to crash every time all I am doing is going into the options (the gold cog)
    when I am in game and click on graphics settings and then under screen sizing select
    1920x1080 in the drop down box and then click on fullsize and then it says
    "please wait" and it crashes back to my desktop

    Also so you know this is using directx for the display mode.

    Now if I set it to opengl before I log in to the game in the settings there
    then try and switch into full screen mode with it in opengl for the display
    mode it just says "please wait" and then switches back to the windowed mode

    Also so you know I have tried to set the graphics mode to "min" and then
    try to switch it into full screen mode and it still crashes back to the desktop.

    Here are the logs from when it was set to "min" in the graphics option and
    it still crashed.

    I was thinking it is some kind of a shadow option or texturing issue with the video
    card to so I have tried disabling these options and it still crashes back to my
    desktop when I am in directx for the display mode.

    again I have had no issue with other games going into full screen mode it appears
    to be just this client.

    I am really out of ideas here I have run though a lot of settings and can't get it
    to go full screen mode on this computer there is something that is causing it
    to crash back to my desktop on this one machine but I am not sure what
    it is.

    As I have said I have the latest AMD Radeon drivers and Catalyst software at the
    time of posting this 16.12.2 (January 8 2017)

    http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/d ... ows+7+-+64

    Can some one please take a look into this issue with the client please?


    Thanks,

    Ok so I have done a bit more testing with this I have a 2nd machine here
    totally different from the last one I just had the client crashing on this is
    an I5-2500 3.30 GHZ 4 GB RAM running Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) SP1
    Now this machine has a built in video card which for sure I thought would
    be more likely to crash but I was proven wrong. The card in this machine
    is an Intel HD built in graphics card.

    I followed the same steps as I did before I went into the settings options
    using the gold cog and then click on the graphics settings options and
    then I clicked on full screen and it went into full screen mode no problem
    in 1920x1080 I select 1920x1080 for the graphics mode in the drop down box
    as well on both machines.

    so is it something with just that one line of cards the AMD HD 7700 series
    cards? is there something I have to disable to prevent it from crashing on
    my 1st machine. I mainly play on the 1st PC which is having issues right now
    not this 2nd machine.

    is there some kind of glitch with the AMD cards and this client
    which is causing it to crash back to my desktop?

    Thanks for the detailed info.
    I would probably suggest to lower the gfx, try resize window mode and no sound for a test.
    The resolution may be the problem, I'll have to check my self also.

    I have tried lowering the resolution it still crashes even on
    a lower resolution when you try and go into full screen mode.

    The doing the no sound didn't help either when I went to go
    into full screen mode it still crashed even with no sound.
