Windows 10 Crash Fix

Postby z.ibrahimovic » Tue Jun 28, 2016 9:34 am

For the people that upgrade to Windows 10, your game will likely crash.
The default settings trigger depreciated directx functions, resulting in the crash. There are however a few workarounds and they can be found on:

Run the game so that it will create the needed UT2004.ini file. The game will crash with the following error:

LockRect failed: D3DERR_DEVICELOST

History: UD3DRenderDevice::ReadPixels <- UD3DRenderDevice::Present <- UGameEngine::Draw <- UWindowsViewport::Repaint <- UWindowsClient::Tick <- ClientTick <- UGameEngine::Tick <- Level Untitled <- UpdateWorld <- MainLoop <- FMallocWindows::Free <- FMallocWindows::Realloc <- 10910191 0 FArray <- FArray::Realloc <- 0*2 <- FMallocWindows::Free

If you get a message saying, please enable direct 3D set the UT2004.exe to Windows XP service pack 2 compatibility mode. You can find the UT2004.exe file in Steam\SteamApps\common\Unreal Tournament 2004\System. If you do not receive that message you can skip setting compatibility mode.

Edit the UT2004.ini file found in the same folder as the UT2004.exe file by replacing the ReduceMouseLag=True entry with ReduceMouseLag=False and save. You can find the UT2004.ini file in Steam\SteamApps\common\Unreal Tournament 2004\System. The ReduceMouseLag entry is listed under the [D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice] section about half way down the page.

So that's what I've been doing wrong :^)

BTW: Runs fine for me on Win 10 w/ Anniversary Update, though mouse acceleration is all disabled. 64-bit client works OK too. RenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice.
