Tower 2011 - NVIDIA problem

Recommended Posts

I installed Tower 2011 and the Tower 2011 stops working.

 

The message I get is the following:

 

"The NVIDIA Open GL driver lost connection with the display driver due to exceeding the windows Time-Out-Limit and is unable to continue. The application must close."

 

Sometimes I can only just start the games, sometimes I can play it for some time. I do not have any other programs running while playing the game.

 

 

My system

Win7 64

Intel Core 2Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40 GHz

Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB

64 bit operating system

GeForce 9600 GT 512 MB GDDR3

 

Open AL installed

 

Speech not installed, I used the short cuts

 

I have de-installed and re-installed several times.

I installed Tower 2011 on a different partition and HDD than Win7.

 

 

Thank you for the help,

Beat

I am also experiencing problems with my Tower game as i am unable to play. The 1st time i installed I opted for the full screen option and since then when I click the icon it starts with a black screen then it opens up a certain part of the screen and nothing happens. i need to remove the full screen option. Any ideas Ive even tried to uninstall the entire game togther with the add ons and deleted the other files in regedit but to no availa as the same settings reappear. Help anybody

I had this issue, I fixed it by going in to the Tower folder and moving the file titled "settings.dat" to the desktop (do not delete it until you check the Sim starts). then run the Sim as Admin, it will create a new file with default settings.

 

Once you have confirmed the Sim still runs, you can delete the moved settings file.

Odd

I have been running Tower 2011 and Tracon 2012 for quite a while now and all of a sudden I get this error message telling me my display mode is not supported (see attached screen shot of error message).

 

My tower.log rar is attached as is the screenshot.

Windows 7 (6.1) Home premium, 64 Bit SP1 (Build 7601)

DirectX 11.0

4G memory

NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS rev B1 512MB

Speech and everything else OK.  As I said, have been running both programs for ages without any problem.  The latest was about 10 days ago.

 

Any advice please?

 

I havent tried running tracon yet, but will.

Thanks

 

Phil
