Game crash on New Game.

OK, so, I'm running CS through Steam. I click "play game" and everything is fine. All the title screens come up and then the main screen pops up just fine as well. I click, "New Game" and then get the screen with the difficulty settings. I click the difficulty setting I want and then the game crashes and freezes up my computer.

What do I do to resolve this problem?

Try starting the game on the preset difficulty level to see if it will run at all. If so, make a save, then esc and use options to alter the difficulty.

But my bet would be something about Steam is your gremlin.

Hello, Go to the Stalker Clear sky game files in your Steam folder and find the appdata folder, In that there is a logs folder and in that logs folder there is many files but only one can be opened with notepad. Scroll to the end of the log file you can open and there should be a section that looks similar to this:

FATAL ERROR

[error]Expression : fatal error
[error]Function : out_of_memory_handler
[error]File : xrDebugNew.cpp
[error]Line : 428
[error]Description : <no expression>
[error]Arguments : Out of memory. Memory request: 255298 K


Find your FATAL ERROR passage and copy paste it here for us. You need to start the game so it crashes and then look in the log for the error message.

Welcome to the GSC Forums!

Please post your Computer specs so we can see what hardware
you have and eliminate that first before we look at other issues.

Hi, there was only one file that in the logs file of Clear Sky. There was no "fatal error" in the notepad that came up but it still looks like there are errors. It also gave me an access a key but never asked me to do it in between starting the game and when it usually crashes. Here:

One of the most important things to mention about your Computer
Specs is the type of Video Card that you have. That's the Achilles' Heel.
