View Full Version : Game crashes right after start.

I just reinstalled DOD out of boredom and nostalgia craving, and whenever I start it the background comes up and it just crashes to desktop. I don't have HL1 installed, could that be the problem?

Scratch what I said, HL1 is installed, game still crashes immediately after launch.

For most people with this issue the problem is caused by DEP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_Execution_Prevention).

If go into your DEP settings (Control Panel->System->advanced system properties->performance options->DEP tab) and add "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\your account name\day of defeat.hl.exe" to the list of DEP-exempt programs, then reboot your machine it should resolve the problem.
