same here. Mine was working, then I changed some of the video options and next restart it failed to load with the same exception. Where are the user settings stored so I can either delete them or edit them back to what they were?

I too think the issue is graphic/performance related..

Hi Guys, have a look in this thread (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?22136-crashes-PC) for possible solutions to this issue...

Also, the quickest way to get to the bottom of this is to do the following...

As a baseline for anyone getting crashes, please do the following...

1) Ensure you have latest drivers.
2) Set everything back to Stock clocks if you have been overclocking, including factory OCs.
3) Disable any overlays in 3rd party software.
4) Disable Sweet FX / Reshade and any other 3rd party application that affects the game &/or its files.
5) Set Virtual Memory to system managed.

Reboot and see if it runs for you.

- If it does run for you, then you can start turning things back on / overclocking etc, but only 1 at a time so you know what is responsible if the issue returns.

- If it still doesn't run, check the Windows Event Viewer for anything being logged at the time of your crash, as this will give an indication on where to start looking.

No Worries, let us know how you get on.

Various things on that list have worked for different people. It will likely only be 1 of them that affects you, but doesnt seem to be a lot of consistency to what causes this between systems.

Nothing..Still suffering the issue. Windows log says I guess common exception : "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered."
And on occassion there was aditional error message displayed saying something about rasterization. Scale or scope or something else is exceeded. I will try to catch it and upload that message once occurred.

Haad the issue about 20 times now my game no longer loads at all, "super mod" is trying to hide threads containing it because if you say the help they are giving doesn't work that is unacceptable so they lock it to make them go away

As said above, try all the suggestion on the thread that Morgan suggested and, besides, give This Other Thread (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?22136-crashes-PC)a read. Lots of helpful post in the\re

We are not locking hiding things up. Please correct yourself. I've even just linked here a bigger longer thread with same/similar issues to facilitate troubleshooting.

There should be no troubleshooting thread, that is an insult. The issue is not at our side it's at the side of the devs, it;'s their bug. Nothing to do with us.

Okay, you were told to stop wasting peoples time.

Now you get a week to calm down.

Have you tried deleting the graphicsconfigdx11.xml file?. located here: C:\Users\you\Documents\Project CARS

so far :
- disabled steam in-game
- disabled MSI AB ( I do not use any 3rd 'game booster soft' )
- restored CPU frequency to factory settings
- restored GPU settings to factory ones
- did clean install of nv drivers ver 350.12
- deleted dx11 xml file
- set virtual memory to be system managed (disk where game is installed)

10-05-2015, 12:39
I make this all too plus

-disable Virusscanner
-disable Firewall
-Use -Dx9 Option
-Run as Admin

No help so far.....

When it crashes, is it driving solo? with other cars on track? how many tracks?

Can you try using -x86 command to run 32bit app?
Also combining this ones:
-x86 -dx11mt -skipcrowds -pthreads 4

This is heavy customized so might not be suitable for everyday uses as I'll use 32bit EXE with Multithreading render path, no crowds and 4 physics threads

I play either solo or career mode. No online as yet. In my opinion it has nothing to do with specific track or cars. Crashes are completely random. It may be encountered right after starting a race/qualifying session but may also happen after having 15-20 mins gameplay with no issues at all. Crashes happen also when only game menu is displayed. Not only while racing.

@Aldo : Still failing after using your custom command :( Thx for input anyway. Seemed like a good try :)

Gday.
My Project Cars (PC) has been hanging since i installed it.
Mostly the game hangs when it is in the LOADING screen.

I have completed 3 seasons of the Championship but some tracks wont load.
Catalunya and Le Mans have a lot of trouble loafing (and i needed to win LeMans ... had to skip the race. Unhappy about that)

Now im stuck trying to race Catalunya and my Career mode is at a stand-still.

Actually turning down all the video settings did nothing - i actually think its made it worse.

The game may run catalunya and LeMans in solo or time trial but not always.
Career mode definately has the most trouble loading the race track.

Sometimes i get a message saying:

BDbgFatal

File: Sourcw\Core\BMemPoolAlloc.xpp
Line: 241
Func: MWL: : Base::BMemPool::_ALloc

Unable to allocate 7684 bytes of memory from the pool (System)

Break Exit

I have a choice to BREAK or EXIT. Then i usually get the Unhandled Exception error message.

I am 90% certain that bugs in Project Cars are causing the issue and not my memory or machine.

Every game i own had bugs so im not complaining or suprised.
But i am very ready for a PATCH for the PC version of Project Cars that will allow me to play my favourite racing simulator.
(tbh, my favourite game of all time).

Thanks for all and any help. I can list the errors that i get in more detail if it helps.
