hl2.exe has stopped working

#1

I’m flabbergasted. I have been eagerly waiting for Black Mesa, downloaded it as soon as it appeared, installed … only to get the dreadful

hl2.exe has stopped working

I’ve checked that the source is in the right place (used the installer, though), I’ve updated video drivers, I’ve even removed all local HL2* to force re-loading of any necessary content (nothing happened, though), but nothing works. Working on a plain, fully patched W7 32 Pro, NVidia 560 Ti, old Core 2 1.8 overclocked to 2.7, 2Gb Ram, at 1366x768.

Please help. The MDMP is attached.

Thanks

I do get the same time but not when i start it but rather within a certain location off the gameplay.

Such as when i start the fan and hurry up before it gain speed then the game crash down, but if i stay under the fan then game wont crash but then i cannot proceed with the game.
This happen whenever the fan gain a certain speed then crash.

Update: setting “-window -dxlevel 91+” (the latter seems crazy, but is also seems to be necessary) worked for me: I can now run BM, although not full-screen. Messing up with graphic options also incurs a serious risk of bombs, but at least for now I can at least proceed …

Make sure there are no boxes/debris on the fan before starting it, should fix it.

How are you playing with a GTX 560ti on only 1366x768? That’s a laptop resolution. Your specs indicate that you’re playing from a laptop…?

No, it’s a desktop which we use with the 32" HD-ready TV. I’d like to upgrade to full-HD, but the original video card broke down a while ago and had to be replaced, thus burning the money for the TV replacement …

Yep. Got it when I was fighting the Apache on Surface Tension.

Hoping for a fix with the Steam release.

Ocasionally the game crashes for me, but it’s ok. The funny thing is that if I Tab down the game and do something else, than even hours later I can re-enter it. Just try this with HL2, the game crashes in no time.

On Windows 7 I have “hl2.exe stopped working” from time to time.
Now I install Windows 8.1 and have this error every ~15 seconds so I can’t play.

Black Mesa do not works on 8.1?

Windows 8.1 here and most things work here.

I play BM with no issues.

Saying nothing works on 8.1 is just completely wrong.

Most applications require to be on desktop mode, I always did.
