white screen of death
« on: May 11, 2024, 12:24:57 PM »
I am also getting the white screen of death  :bhead

Attached my dxdiag, I am running DX12, I have tried to run through steam (which fixes for everyone else that I read) nada, game loads up white screen then crashes

Any ideas? I have quite the super computer for this game so it shouldnt have issues

How far into the game do you get?

If it loads the notebook, under graphics be sure you have the Nivida card selected. White screen often means not enough video card. Other than that a corrupt file during the DL and install might be an issue.

Id clear the Hitech folder, download a fresh copy, and reinstall it.

I would still double check the video card settings. If the game wants to run on the Intel 770 that might be the issue. Here's how: https://youtu.be/5Fb0HrCbFT0?feature=shared

Also, double check that you have connected your monitor to the Nvidia card. If you don't know which it is, here's a simple rule of thumb: The Intel slot is vertical in the square plate in the upper corner of the back of your case, amidst the USB ports. The Nvidia connectors are horizontal in the low-mid in the back, most likely above a grille.

Looking further your DxDiag I'd also update the Bios.

I've got an older system by today's standards that still runs the game well by my standards.

Nada none of these fixes work, RTX 4080 super is being detected, deleted every single trace of the game, selected high performance etc, nothing works

Did you also update the bios?

And while at the support website, check for other motherboard driver updates as well: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/PRO-Z690-A-DDR4/support

In the windows start menu there's 2 versions of the game, DX9 and DX11. Have you tried running both versions?

Do other games work as expected?

When Aces High crashes, it may make a dump file that HiTech can look at and maybe tell you what's going wrong.

In the folder "Hitech Creations\Aces High III\temp" there may be some dump files that look something like "aceshigh*_*_*_*.dmp".

If there are any dmp files, zip up the most recent and email to HiTech asking him to look at it and tell him what's happening. You could also attach it here in this post for him to see.
