Planetside2.exe has stopped working

Discussion in 'General Technical Support' started by AngelSnypz, Nov 21, 2012.

  1. Just as the title says. run the launcher fine. all files validate fine. as soon as i click play is launches then loads to around 48% then freezes and gives me "Planetside2.exe has stopped working"

    Im running Win 8 Pro 64bit, a Radeon 7690m XT gpu and a I7-2670Qm Cpu. so the game is well withing my withsystem specs to run. funny thing is that it ran perfect with the beta. and the full release is giving me more problems than the beta did?

    Any fixes? i have replaced the dxinput8.dll which aparently fixes win 8 problems but to to avail. i also have no controllers or anything plugged in except my Razer Mamba mouse.

    Help?
  2. I am having a similar problem where as soon as I push play it pops up with "Planetside2.exe has stopped working". I'm running Windows 8 and have a Nvidia GTX 660m and an Intel i7-3610QM. I also installed it via steam if it matters. I had a controller plugged in and am currently re-installing it so as soon as it's done I'll see if not having it plugged in helps.
  3. I'm having the same problem (press play, the splash screen pop up, and then "Planetside 2 has stopped working").
    No error code, not a single clue to what might be wrong.
    Tried to unplug my second monitor, install the latest nVidia beta drivers, run the exec in compatibility mode... Nothing.

    I'm using Windows 8 and running the game from Steam, if it is relevant.
  4. Same issue, i7, Nvidia card, Windows 8. Not using steam.
  5. Bump. Just a question what antivirus do you all have?

    I also played the beta. completely removed everything from my computer and re-installed the game. Still getting this error after re-installing 3 times.
  6. Add another player with this issue. The funny thing is the very first time i played the game after installing it through steam it worked. Now i'm getting what you all are getting...

    Windows 8 Pro 64-bit
    Core i7 2600k
    8 GB RAM
    Nvidia GTX 660
  7. same issue still cant play
  8. ive just got the default windows defender that comes packaged with win 8 (which in all reality is just Microsoft security essentials renamed) and i have added all the files needed to the exceptions in my AV and Firewall and still nothing. just got off live chat with a SOE techy and i was told that a clean install will fix my problem. currently downloading/reinstalling to see if that will fix the issue. However i see some of you have had no luck with that either. Wish there was a simple solution that wasn't just "Reinstall the game" and waste all your internet.
  9. So I'm not the only one at least. I just installed the game from Steam, so need to "do a clean install" of the game. That's just Tier 1 support speak for "we tell everyone to try this so we can have time to we find the real answer."

    Looking at the Event logs I see this:
    Code:
    Faulting application name: PlanetSide2.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x50ad1cd4
    Faulting module name: DINPUT8.dll, version: 6.2.9200.16384, time stamp: 0x5010a805

    Looks like they aren't working with DirectInput somehow.

    Sounds like we are all running Windows 8. I'm guessing they didn't spend a lot of time testing on the current Windows OS.

    If more information would be helpful, let me know.

    BTW, this was a clean install of Windows 8 Pro 64 bit, with the latest signed drivers.
  10. huh thats funny, according to Tech Support they fixed the DINPUT8.dll problem with win 8. do you have a controller or anything plugged in? that causes a few problems with win 8 and Planetside 2. however i checked my Event Viewer and it told me the Fault Module was Planetside2.exe. Which is actually kind of worrying seeing the exe is throwing the errors and not some other process/dll in my case at least.

  11. Same error message. However, I get this error after a "disconnect" inside the game about 10minutes after playing- Aussie server.

  12. Made a clean reinstallation, without Steam, and i still have the same error.
    Don't know what else i could do.
  13. Same issue. GTX 580, 8 gigs of RAM, AMD Phenom II X4 965, Windows 8 64 bit. I'm running it off of Steam.
  14. Apparrently Mumble can cause planetside to crash upon attempting to launch the game with mumble open. This probably has something to do with overlays and issues with windows 8. Workaround for this is to launch mumble after planetside.

    If you're having Planetside2.exe has stopped responding errors, you may want to check your application logs inside event viewer to see if you can isolate an offending program.
  15. well i have seen that a few places before with planetside disagreeing with mumble.

    soooo? planetside2.exe is the problem? and thats the main executable for the game? somethings wrong
  16. I managed to fix mine by simply unplugging my 360 controller. If anyone else who's having this problem has a 360 controller plugged in, try unplugging it.
  17. Well blow me down. I was all set to say I only had a keyboard and mouse plugged in when I remembered that I had plugged in a joystick a couple of days ago. Unplugged it and the game started to actually launch. Then I got an Error code G37--- "The servers are down."

    Sure enough, they took the servers down just a bit ago for a hotfix. What luck. Maybe I will get in yet before I have to shuffle off to bed.

    Still, very sad that they have an issue with a Joystick plugged into the system. Seems they could detect that and disable it in their own software somehow.
  18. I just managed to overcome this by finding my Logitech G27 wheel and separate pedals in device manager and disabling them. Although the field of view and menus when running with eyefinity isn't all that great even after turning up the field of view to its maximum
  19. just popping in to confirm unplugging my 360 pad fixed the problem.
