TMUF stops

Post by jorandy » 28 Sep 2011 12:24

I have TMUF. It frequently stops, I mean really stops, not freeze, just stops running and my desktop appears. To continue playing I have to restart the game. This happens on 2 PCs that I have (A pentium 4 and an AMD 4400+ both Windows XP and with 2G of RAM). HDD space is not a problem. It does not seem to be a temperature issue because it can happen just 5 minutes after boot. I removed a little-used SCSI PCI card from one of the machines and it seemed to be OK for a few days, but then it started stopping again. It does not happen every time I play, just every one in two times approx. This never happens on my 4-year old laptop or on another Pentium 4 machine that I have.

Any suggestions will be gratefully received

Thanks

Have you tried re-installing the program?: sometimes it misses out it's own files required.

Yeah, that was one of the first things I tried. This last weekend I started getting 'Disk nearly full messages from XP, so I move a load of stuff to a second drive. Then I defragged the original disk using Diskkeeper (free and fast) and I haven't had a failure since (:-)) - with any luck that was the cause. I am busy defragging everything in sight now.

hanks for the interest.
