Mass Effect "has stopped working"

Post by Rosco on Sat 12 Feb 2011, 19:14

I want to start by saying thank you and I appreciate what you guys do. I've gotten several of your games from TPB and don't usually have much of a problem, or at least one I can't figure out. That is, until now.

I downloaded your torrent for Mass Effect 1. It installed fine, the config runs, and by all other appearances, it's normal. When I try to actually play the game, however, it closes the window and another one pops up that just says "Mass Effect has stopped working" with a loading bar telling me Windows is searching for a solution to the problem. If I run the autorun or launcher shortcut, it takes me to the "start screen" for Mass Effect, where I can select Play, Configure, Uninstall, etc. But if I open the Mass Effect.exe in the Binaries folder, the "stopped working" screen pops up right away. Nothing else. Same thing happens when I click Play from the start screen.

A few times, Windows has told me that it thinks the game isn't running because it needs to be updated. I went to http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/downloads-f1/mass-effect-1-problem-solved-t684.htm and did what was said, but it didn't change anything.

Also, my Map FIX folder is empty. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling ME, and the folder is still empty.

I'm running Vista SP2.

Thank you for your time and work!

Hi,
Can you see any error code? When windows pop up and tell you about the problem. Just click more info or something like that. And you can see the error. Please let us know, what is the error.

I also do recommend you to update all of your driver.

Hello,

Please navigate to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mass Effect\Binaries
Here, you'll see a file called "masseffect.exe". Right-click on it and choose "Run as Admin". See what happens now.

There is no error code. The only thing that comes up is a box that says "Mass Effect has stopped working. Windows is searching for a solution to the problem" and it has a Cancel button at the bottom right, and if I wait for it to load, it says "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available" and a button at the bottom right that says "Close program."

I will update my drivers as soon as possible, which should be tomorrow morning.

And I don't have a "Program Files (x86)." I just have a regular C:\Program Files\. But I opened C:\Program Files\Mass Effect\Binaries and ran MassEffect.exe as an Admin, and the same thing happened. =\

Hi,
No problem, as long the program file contain the mass effect file/folder.
Yeah, please update as soon you finish with your driver update. Especially the graphic card driver Smile

Please apply that fix. I know it a solution for COD 5, but you also can give a shot. Who knows, that can cure your problem. Let me know after you done with that.
