Question about Codemasters TOCA Race Driver 3 for Windows

1 Answer

Game will not start. Says there is a problem with rd3.exe and it has to close.

The game is actually V8 Supercars Australia 3, which I believe is exactly the same as TOCA Race Driver 3.

I have loaded it on my PC but when the installation is finished and I try to launch the game I get a message saying that there is problem with rd3.exe and that it will have to close. There is then the usual box saying send an error report to Microsoft.

I have tried restarting the PC, uninstalling the game and reinstalling it again, none of which makes it work.

Any ideas?

Regards

Stuart Buckle

Hmmm try using different cracks, using cracks often help. Or it might be just that your graphics card can't play that game. I'll give u the link where u'll find the cracks, the no-cd ones are the cracks, good luck

I had the same issue and resolved it by downloading the World war 3 black gold 1.2 Patch - install this and you should be fine. I will still ask you to select a resolution but it will actually let you now.

MY EA game cricket 2007 does not start ...Whenever I start the game it appears in a dialogue box that CRICKET07.exe has stopped working


If the message you are receiving is something like"Cricket07.exe has encountered an error, and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience" etc, then this is most likely due to outdated video card drivers. Update your drivers to the latest version for your card, and then try the game again.
Hope that helps.
Cheers from NZ :D

Hey! so i recentley remembered the game Hype: the time quest in the back of my head and i brought back the cd from 1999 and tried to install it on my new windows 7 64 bit computer. it was a failed...


64-bit versions of Windows can't run the CD installer due to it being a 16-bit application. Trying to run the installer in Windows 7 x64 will cause the process to freeze in the background and require the task manager to close. One workaround is to install the game on a 32-bit copy of Windows and transfer the installed game to a 64-bit computer. A virtual machine will also work such as VirtualBox if you don't have another computer available. When installing the game select 'Full Installation'. The game installs to three locations:

  • Your specified install path. The default is C:\Ubi Soft\Hype - The Time Quest . This is where the game data is stored and the two executables for Direct3D and Glide mode.
  • C:\Windows\Ubisoft . This has an application called SetupUbi that shortcuts point to to play the game, various *.dlls, and Ubi.ini, the settings file for the game.
  • The registry key location is HKLM\Software\Ubi Soft\Hype - The Time Quest . Only a version string is stored here.

Copy the game data folder to your 64-bit windows and place the Ubi.ini folder into a C:\Windows\Ubisoft folder. The other files in the Ubisoft folder are not needed to play the game and SetupUbi has the same problem as the installer on the CD. The registry key is also not required to play the game.

The executables to play the game are MaiD3Dvr_bleu and MaiDFXvr_bleu for Direct3D and Glide mod respectively. Neither will work with default settings in Windows 7 x64. Set the compatibility mode for the executables to 'Windows 2000' to get the game to run without immediately failing. To change the game settings run 'UbiAssistant' as an administrator or edit the Ubi.ini file in the C:\Windows\Ubisoft folder. There is a patch available at Ubi.com labeled 'Voodoo 3 and Direct3D'. It is uncertain if this is required but is recommended to install. The patch is ~4.01 MB if the Ubi.com link goes down and a replacement download needs to be found.

The Direct3D mode will suffer serious graphical glitches that render the game unplayable by the end of the intro. There is no available fix for it. nGlide is a Glide wrapper available at Zeus Sooftware which does support Hype - The Time Quest. Download and install it and then download the patch for the game. The patch is in the compatibility list at the bottom of the nGlide download link and then search for the entry for Hype - The Time Quest. The patch says to turn videos off but this is not a required step but it is recommended. The game will still play with videos but besides the Ubisoft logo video at the start of the game there are only two others at the start and end of the game and playing the video may cause future issues. Turn it on when you start and finish the game but turn videos off at all other times.

Run MaiDFXvr_bleu.exe to use the glide wrapper, remember to set compatibility mode to Windows 2000, and Hype - The Time Quest should run on Windows 7 x64!

FSX installed and activated easily (3 times) but no icon on desktop nor entry in "all programs" or MS Games. FSX plays after activation until I close program. Then cant be found.Can you help?


try to search it at program files. maybe at installation start menu folder or desktop icon didn't created but the program already installed.

open 'add or remove programs' window. if your game are listed in there, then your game is already installed at the computer. open C drive (where is windows installed) go to program files folder and search your game folder. if you find it then search the game application (.exe) right click and 'send to desktop'.

if your game is not listed in 'add or remove programs', then u need to reinstall the game. maybe there is problem with your VGA or RAM that makes the game erased after you playing the game. or maybe u have your computer 'deep freeze' program and you installed the game at frozen condition.

hope this useful.

Does Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2006 for Windows come with 2 or 3 discs? My son's game only had two discs and I sold it and buyer says he needs a 3rd disc in order to install. My son always kept his games...


I believe that game has 3-4 discs actually. Perhaps they're in another case or something?

If not, he can try downloading the game by going to http://www.utorrent.com and installing utorrent, then go to http://www.btjunkie.org and search for the game. If you find it, click on the link for it and open the torrent file in uTorrent and it will start downloading the game. It will download to your "My Documents > Downloads" folder by default.

Best of luck !

Best Regards,

James

This game won't load.


1. Does your DVD-drive still work. If not, you know what to do.
2. Have you tried reinstalling the game?
3. If there really is no way you can repair it, you can download a no-cd exe, which means you don't have to insert the CD to play.
Mind you, this is ONLY legal when you actually own the game!
Download the "fixed exe" here:
If you wonder what version to take, just patch the game to the latest version and download the latest exe.

Ski doo x team racing problems please help me


Try running in compatibility mode. Rightclick the shortcut, select properties>compatibility>check the box that says: run in compatibility mode for: and select an OS.

If that doesnt help I'm afraid you gotta actually run windows 95, 98, me or 2k to get it to work.

I hope this helps,
