First off we know its an issue...second were positive that we have no idea what the heck causes it....third from now on if you post on the forum asking for help on this matter were going to delete it. I know Jeff and HL have got to be getting sick and tired of copying and pasting the same answer over and over and over. Here are the only ways we know of to correct the issue.

1) Make sure you have update the video drivers for your video card.

2) If you are using TW2004, make sure you have installed the version 1.1 patch for the game, available at the EA Sports web site.

3) Make sure you have EVERY library that is needed for the course you are trying to play installed, including the stock libraries that come with the game.  For TW2006 users, make sure you download and install the TW2006 Course Architect program from the EA Sports web site.  The 06 CA program contains several Architect Libraries needed for almost every custom course released.

4) Make sure you change your graphics setting from Auto to Manual.

5) Make sure you turn OFF animated galleries.

6) If these do not work, try a full UNINSTALL and REINSTALL of the game. Again, make sure to PATCH the game to version 1.1 after the reinstall if you are using TW2004.

7) Make sure that you don`t have any Spyware of Adware installed on your computer...My suggestion use Spybot S&D on a regular basis. Spyware and Adware kills your RAM available for the game.

8) MAKE SURE YOU ARE RUNNING DIRECT X 9.0

9) Try installing the courses and all its libraries via EA Course Utility opposed to Jorgens Installer and Vice Versa if you used the Course Utility, try installing it with Jorgens Installer.

One more thing to add to step 5).... turn your tree detail down to medium or even low.... I find that is the most common cause of desktop crashes.

As for virtual memory goes thats a great idea another thing players might want to do is Download this program and run it, I was shocked to find I had over 500 diffrent forms of spyware addware on my PC that were running and soaking up all of my precious RAM and Virt Memory.

Appreciate the hints but none of them should be needed to keep this from happening. Another case of a beta product being put on the retail market. :(

Thats not a very fair or accurate statement to make. There have been less problems this year with crashes to the desktop than in the past 2 years. I have heard very few problems this year at all in comparison to past years. Im sorry that the tips listed here dont fix everyones problems, but just because someone is having problems doesnt mean it is a beta product. No software manufacturer can account for the unlimited number of PC configurations out there.

Well after 3 years now of reading countless courses that crash to desktop we decided to take all the data we could to figure out WTF was causing it.



Well it didnt take long for us to discover that some deisgners simply used an old library they had and added new textures to it and saved it with a different name....



Well the problem with this is that the guid in the registry DOES NOT CHANGE every single time you do this. For example if you have Muskrat by Dammpa and Damma installed and the course really needs Sasquatch library which are two different libraries but share the same guid therefore when you install one it overwrites the other making any course that uses Muskrat unplayable.



And if your like me and only use jorgens installer it will not install the correct library because it will report that library is already installed.....but the wrong one is installed.



Here is a list of libraries that you may want to check to see if they are used on the course your having problems with.



GUID LIBRARY

-

0523CEFE-9B21-40E2-9C17-C483D3B7C80B Southwind Topaz

0523CEFE-9B21-40E2-9C17-C483D3B7C80B Topaz 2003



18EBCF8C-F50D-455E-84DB-E8BB45B64934 Muskrat

18EBCF8C-F50D-455E-84DB-E8BB45B64934 Sasquatch



21FD42CE-6651-400E-B861-D16BD6ED1B21 PCK Library

21FD42CE-6651-400E-B861-D16BD6ED1B21 Valhalla Library



3E9D922D-89BC-4F32-AB05-E069F2BB98DA Arbour2k3

3E9D922D-89BC-4F32-AB05-E069F2BB98DA DGArbour



405ADFED-0900-415A-A934-889422B2D314 Eagle Creek

405ADFED-0900-415A-A934-889422B2D314 Hanging Tree



93D7B2E1-1E6C-418F-BBF8-2A9AA058542A Hidden Lake

93D7B2E1-1E6C-418F-BBF8-2A9AA058542A The Vineyard



Now im not saying this is the only cuase as we are all aware of the setting being to high but when I tested my theory I create a course with the first ones on the list and then replaced them with the duplicates the course crashed each time.
