    Exclamation Official Windows 98/ME Thread

    I am creating this to contain all the windows 98 and ME issues. Windows 95 is too old to be able to support without a lot more work, so it is remaining off the officially supported list.

    I will be putting up an beta 98/ME patch later tonight, so try it out and post your results here.

    One problem I am having (and I'm not lying!) is I can not make it crash on my 98 machine. I found a number of issues that caused glitches and fixed them and they may have been causing the crashes, but I need the people who have had the crashes to let me know if this fixes them. I certainly belive you have problems.. but the vast array of hardware and software driver versions can make finding the cause difficult without a office building full fo test boxes.

    Thanks!

    Re: Official Windows 98/ME Thread

    Does this patch have anything besides the 98/ME fix?

    And will downloading future patches include this patch for the 98/ME users?

    Re: Official Windows 98/ME Thread

    It does include the latest code, but there isn't a list of fixes written up yet. If you have 2000 or XP and want to try it, go ahead. If you find a bug that is NOT in 9.14 then post it here.

    Future patches will include the 98/ME fixes, yes.

    Re: Official Windows 98/ME Thread

    Hi,

    I am using Windows ME. When I simulate a day, week, or month of the season, I get an error message--Bb2k7 has caused an error in USER.exe. Bb2k7 will now close.

    I've installed the patch from this thread. I am still getting the error message and am still unable to play the game. From other member's messages, I thought this patch would correct this. Is this the problem others are experiencing using Windows ME?

    As a long time Mogul fan I find this frustrating to not be able to play the game. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    I am using Win98 and had same error when I simmed, it came right after an injury box came up. I am also getting it most every time I hit the "scout" button in batting order (have not tested a lot yet, might happen elsewhere too). I was going to wait until I had done more testing because my machine is not that stable (after running win98 for 7 years no one is stable), but thought I would back up this post.

    I played 3 games of PBP and they ran fine except that pitch locations don't show in the box next to where the pitches are described.

    Also, non-PBP and might be just my machine, but if the program has a window/box open, like the batting order or the save game dialogue, and attempts to open a another window/box (usually the "are you sure" ones), they open behind the already open window/box and invisible. I had a similar problem with 2k6, so might just be this dying machine if no one else has that happen.
    Please make at least a small effort to stay on topic.

    Some errors messages for you. The .mod is unchanged from what I downloaded, playing current season. If you need it posted let me know.

    3 samples of the error that come from simming single game (seems over 80% of the time):

    Re: Official Windows 98/ME Thread

    When in A.Draft it won't let me draft for my team the Miami Rookie Marlins and also in 1979 league my team the Orlando Tropicals Draft Picks I picked show up on the Cardinals the team I picked when I started the league!
    When I try to change M.Cabrara postion to 3b it won't or let me change it and if it does he still at RF and at some screens it takes along time for it to change meaning a couple of clicks and also at the Transaction heading I can't even change it to my team anymore!

    Re: Official Windows 98/ME Thread

    Could everyone who is having problems post their debug.txt file after a crash?

    Also, has the 98/ME patched fixed any crashes for anyone?

    My Win 98 test machine is a fresh install, so it looks like it might be a fix, upgrade or some other program might be triggering a flaw in the 98 version of BB2K7.

    Thanks.

    It still crashes on me every tiem I try to scout a player in any area. It also crashed while simming a number of times, but it wasn't as bad as before. I don't know how to post that info you asked for. I'm using ME

    Re: Official Windows 98/ME Thread

    These are the things I have found

    auto save works for Win 98SE
    All human and all computer controlled works fine

    It is when you try to control your team yourself that it crashes
    this is with 9.14 regular-not 98A

    Re: Official Windows 98/ME Thread

    New 98 test version is up, look near the top of the thread for the file.

    Let me know if it helps. Is there anyone who can run the 98/ME patch and NOT crash it?

    I built a second Win 98 box and still can't repro all the crashes. :-(

    I got a 404 error when I tried to download it, but think I got it to download at http://www.sportsmogul.com/Updates/B...2K7-91698B.zip

    Will check it out.
