NR2003 crashes every time it starts?

Post by RetrogradeRenegade on Sun Oct 16, 2016 3:48 am

So Windows 10 updated earlier, and I felt like playing some more NR2003. Unfortunately, now every time I try and load, the game crashes when it tries to reset the rend_dxg.ini - it gets to a certain point when measuring the texture set size, seems to go back a bit, before crashing. Drivers haven't changed, the only thing that has is the Windows 10 update, the game was working fine last night before the OS update.

Now here's the really weird bit: Every time this happens, the Renderer line in the rend_dxg.ini changes slightly. First of all, it picks up this:
Code:
Renderer=C:\WINDOWS\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\nv_dispiwu.inf_amd64_9ff5ab165faead52\nvd3dum

Which obviously does not correspond to a dll in the folder - I checked, and there is a dll with that name, and another one with 'x' on the end. Tried setting it to both, which didn't work. It reverts to the above line, but everything after 'nvd3d' gets placed on a new line, which has resulted in this:

Code:
Renderer=C:\WINDOWS\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\nv_dispiwu.inf_amd64_9ff5ab165faead52\nvd3dum
um
um
um
um
um
um
um

I tried setting the driver in Config to OpenGL - that works OK. Tried setting it back to DirectD3D, and on first setting everything is OK, but then when I load the game, it tries to reset the .ini and I get stuck in the same problem. I'm currently downloading new drivers from NVidia (graphics card is a GTX 670), but in the meantime, I'm stumped. I dunno if anyone here has any kind of insight as to what the hell is going on, but I figure it can't hurt to ask.

EDIT: Turns out updating drivers fixed the issue - I'll leave this here though just in case anyone has a similar problem. Despite working though, the game is still compelled to re-analyse the available graphics memory any time I try and get to a race, which is quite annoying because now there is no way for me to not have blurry textures.

I had this problem before as well. The Windows 10 Anniversary Update does not like NR2003. Best advice I could give you is to either roll back your graphics card or roll back your version of Windows, assuming you're still within the 10-day period.

My biggest tip is, whenever you wish to update your system, always make sure to update every program and drivers you have as well, that can and will help if some things aren't running properly, or at all.
