Pinball game crashes Help?!

By Pinball Blues
Jun 7, 2006
  1. Hello I recently bought “Ultimate Pinball Extreme” and it’s been crashing on me. I’ve spent the last few days trying to fix it but I’m at a loss, so I was hoping smarter people than me might be able to help.

    I've tried all that valusoft recommends on their site, but it still crashes. The game plays, it’s only when you get to a point in the game where animations are involved does it crash. For example on one table there are 3 elephants that go across the screen and when their halfway past the screen the game crashes. Same thing for all the other tables when their animations are activated.

    I've been able to minimize the game when it happens and this is the message I'm getting:

    Application Error
    The instruction at 004589b5 referenced memory at 00000000.
    The memory could not be read from
    Click on OK to terminate the application

    A few seconds after I terminate the app. I get this message:

    dwwin.exe Application Error

    The exception breakpoint
    A breakpoint has been reached (0x80000003) occured in the application
    at location 0x77f75a58.
    Click on OK to terminate the program
    Click on Cancel to debug the program

    I've clicked on the debug and nothing happens.

    I play games like DOOM 3, Vice City, HalfLife2 on this machine and they run fine. It can't be my graphics card isn't good enough.

    I'd appreciate any suggestions anyone might have.

    I’ve done Registry Fix, ran Virus and Adware programs, tested my memory, updated windows (except for sp2) updated drivers on video card and directx. Ran Defrag and scan disk also.

    Some specs: XP Pentium 4 1500MHz – 1.5 GHz
    1 GB RAM
    75 GB Hard Drive
    Nvidia GeForce3 64MB

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    It may be caused by a problem with the error reporting service.
