Exclamation BF3 BETA DRIVER CRASH!!! See this for you who cant start the game!

UPDATED WITH A LAST STEP.

It seems the Nvidia BF3 beta drivers 285.38 has a PhysX beta driver 9.11.0621 that is causing PAYDAY to crash on start up.

Very unfortunate.

If you like to run PAYDAY do as follows:

Uninstall the PhysX from the control panel

then:

Reinstall the PhysX from the Payday folder (this is version 9.10.0513)

Last step:

Now run the payday win32 exe file in the payday folder




HUGE thanks to all the players who put all the effort in to track this down with us. +rep to you!

Bo

Just a heads up - I'm running the beta drivers with my GTX 570 and have had NO issues whatsoever (touch wood), so maybe it's not simply the beta/physx drivers causing this crash, rather a combination of things?

Guys! I still need to check that it works (installing some drivers now).

But go here if you have a Nvidia Geforce:
http://www.geforce.com/Drivers

Update your driver. I realized that mine was old, and maybe the old one was incompatible.

EDIT:

I found my problem. Running an old version of physx.

THAT REFUSES TO UNINSTALL.

Played this on release date for 4 hrs. Today I have been trying for 10hrs to get it running... Never before has a game beat me through problems but I tip my hat to you, the devs. You won.

To resolve I have(and please remember it all worked perfectly the day before doing any of this!!):

Unplugged all USB's exept G15 kb and MX518 mouse
Updated my card drivers to 285.38 (using drive sweeper etc)
Uninstalled them again to 275.50 (using drive sweeper etc)
updated them to 280.36 (using drive sweeper etc)
Uninstalled Physx 9.11.0621
Installed Physx 9.10.0514
Scanned my registry at least 15 times to find any left over files.
Reinstalled DX (Payback folder) it failed so I
Reinstalled DX from BFBC2 (worked)
Reinstalled DX (from payback folder) this time worked!?

I have 37 crash mdmp files in the root folder now.... All saying Exception code 0xE06D7363..... Could I maybe send you one or two? Address to send if yes?

I have no idea what to do now... Beaten

Oddly enough, I have an intermittent startup problem. I normally have to start the game 3-4 times before it actually starts, after that it works fine. PhysX version 9.10.514

It's not the physx driver that is causing the startup issue...

...and does anyone REALLY think that FPS gamers are going to uninstall the very driver they will be using on Tueday next week when BF3 releases?!?! If someone does think so, then they are probably delusional about the importance of this game vs th eFPS community at large.

Please fix the USB issue, before we demand refunds.
