Newcomer to Unreal - Experiencing Issues
Dec 1st, 2019 at 8:03am
Print Post  
Hello everyone! I'm not only a newcomer to the forums but to Unreal as a whole. Due to circumstance, I never got the chance to play Unreal or UT except at a friend's house during the early 2000's.

Anyway, I've recently been ticking off games from my bucket list and I purchased Unreal Gold from GOG. Unfortunately, I can't launch the game - I keep getting the 'General Access Violation' error. I followed a trail of internet breadcrumbs to this handsome community.

I'm using patch 277i but I still get the message. I've also added Unreal to DEP (also tried disabling DEP for all but essential services) as well as allowing exception to my firewall.

I'll attach the end of my log below. Any help would be appreciated.

Crashes mentioning Critical: UFireTexture are usually caused by an incompatibilty of unreal with DEP. (Data Execution prevention) DEP should not be on for Unreal.

But you already mentioned that it is not on for all programs. Please double-check this.
This is all I know about this issue.

Thanks for the response, Hyper.
I was able to launch Unreal using OpenGL & dx9 after reinstalling the game. I made no changes to my setup whatsoever so I'm guessing it was either a missing or corrupted file or I somehow botched the patch installation originally. Now I can hopefully actually play this game. Better late than never, eh?  Wink
