Unreal Gold: crash and error

I bought Unreal Gold at a local thrift store, installed it, and ran it using the software renderer. I even ran it in safe mode, I still get the same error. Here's the message I get.

General Protection Fault!

History: UFireTexture::ConstantTimeTick <- UTexture::Tick <- (FireTexture NALIFX.SHANEFX.TORCHES2) <- UTexture::Update <- URender:CheesyrawFrame <- URender:CheesyrawFrame <- URender:CheesyrawWorld <- UGameEngind:Cheesyraw <- UWindowsViewPort::Repaint <- UWindows Client::Tick <- ClientTick <- UGameEngine::Tick <- UpdateWorld <- MainLoop

What does this all mean, and how can I fix it? I've been able to get original Unreal to work fine up until recently, but then it started doing the same thing. Sorry about tbe damn smileys! Wherever you see one, it's supposed to be a colon and a D. I just typed the error out exactly as it appeared.

I'd recommend updating to patch 227.

http://www.oldunreal.com/oldunrealpatches.html

And use the OpenGL render.

It seems the textures folder didn't install correctly...try copying the textures folder directly from the CD to your Unreal directory perhaps?

I agree with Shivaxi. From the looks of it the NaliFX package is corrupt. If needed you can download it here: Unreal_NaliFX.zip

No, seriously, this is DEP. Read Gizzy's post.

This. Again.

The cause for this bug is unclear. It may be due to the high amount of assembly code in Fire.dll

Read this article and see if it helps.

Ok, i read it, and if its the case than i who am i to say its the wrong workaround Smiley . But i would still be curious if switching out the package also solves the problem, and if it persist will the tweak do the trick.


So i would ask SabreFan84 to first switch the package, than test it, and see if the tweak than solves the problem?
