Game Crashes at Main Menu

  • Hey All,

    Just bought this game on Steam and went to play it, but it crashes to desktop at the main menu.

    The message I get is “UDK.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. Sorry for the inconvenience.”

    I’ve tried every fix listed in this post: viewtopic.php?f=69&t=14140 and none of them work.

    Here are the dxdiag, unreal file, and launch log.

    Hope you can help, as I’d love to be able to play this game!

  • Rightho this might get a bit complicated. In the logs you have the error “Detected negative delta time - on AMD systems please install” Firstly can you let us know aht CPU/Gfx card you have? It looks from the dxdiag that it’s a quad core intel cpu on a 430 gfx card, so why an AMD related error is appearing is a bit baffling? (you haven’t recently upgraded/or copied the game files from an AMD system?)- it seems to be a problem with some machines with AMD dual-core processors and the Unreal Engine. There’s a thread about it here: … hp?t=79108

    Next up can you try setting the CPU affinity of udk.exe to one core and see if it stops the crashes?

    Anyhoo let us know how it goes?

  • Ok weird, I don’t have anything even remotely related to AMD in my system, but I downloaded the suggested link from the launch file anyway. It was also a clean install of the game directly from Steam. Ran the game and was able to go through the training without any problems.

    Very strange bug indeed.

    My specs are:

    Intel Q9400 2.66Ghz
    2GB Ram
    Nvidia GeForce GT 430

    Not sure why an AMD error would occur, but downloading the update from the link in the launch file seems to have fixed it.
