Before anyone says it, yes I'm aware you can't log in at the moment, there's no beta.
Anyway, I'm posting on behalf of a friend who recently grabbed a beta key and downloaded the client, he's been having several issues from the onset, redownloaded it, and finally managed to get to the login screen by running the game in windowed mode. By trying to log in he gets the usual "no beta" error message, but this also causes the game to crash entirely and give a fatal exception:
The "Fatal disk-error" part leads me to assume there's a problem with his HDD, but naturally I'd like to make sure before I tell him he needs a new one.Code:nt: *--> Crash <--* Fatal Error: Fatal disk-error (1450) on write App: Gw2.exe Pid: 21020 Cmdline: -windowed BaseAddr: 00400000 ProgramId: 101 Build: 14610 When: 2012-07-13T06:15:15Z 2012-07-12T23:15:15-07:00 Uptime: 0 days 0:01:00 Flags: 0
Settings can be changed quite freely, and we've tried simply lowering them all to the absolute minimum; it does nothing to solve the problem.
Has anyone else been unable to get past the login screen in the past few betas? How did you go about fixing it? Any help is appreciated, as the next beta isn't too far away; I'd like him to be able to play before then.
