 Post Topic: Cryengine 3 keeps crashing on startup (EVEN AFTER REINSTALL)
PostPosted 02.07.2011, 00:10 
Hello all,

i downloaded the Cryengine 3 sandbox editor yesterday and started playing around with it. i had managed to create an island with ground textures when the Editor crashed. It asked if i wanted to save(scary) or not. since this was the first island i have ever built with the editor i was quite proud of how it looked and i clicked save.

But now every time i open up the Sandbox editor it crashes and asks me if i want to save(scary). I have reinstalled my drivers for the GTX570 and reinstalled the editor but it keeps crashing and asking me if i want to save every time i open it. Please help, this is a very annoying issue.

So how do i get Editor to open without the "Cryengine 3 has stopped responding" thing popping up?

Can't help you with a proper solution for the crashes after "Save(Scary)", other then suggest you just should try reinstall, but i think you tried this already.

It fails to localize the Resource compiler. just change the root directory to the one that matches your Crysis2 install path on your HD. Once the Engine State turns to green you are good to go.

i've reinstalled the editor several times now. The only thing left to reinstall would be the game but i'm reluctant to do that...

I am getting the exact same problem as well. I have have reinstalled the editor twice now and it keeps crashing whenever it opens. I have yet to reinstall all of Crysis 2 but I am considering it. Registries have been cleaned out numerous times as well.

Someone please help.

EDIT: When I first ran the editor, an error came up saying something about a HKEY registry, though I cannot recall the rest of it. After that, the crash upon opening the editor happens over and over.

EDIT 2: I've installed the editor on my desktop PC without the DX11 and hi-res texture pack and this is the HKEY warning that pops up.

th3illusiveman, I found a possible solution:

http://sdk.crymod.com/display/SDKDOC21/ ... t+Settings

No re-installation needed; just deleted the registry as shown. Apparently the ribbon UI is bugged.

Courtesy of Cry-Alex who responded in the crash ribbon UI thread. This worked for me and I think it should do the same for you. You can also get rid of the HKEY warning by finding the exact registry and setting it to 0.

I know that if you move any .pak folder into the crysis2game folder without renaming it, this can happen, as well.
Make sure all of the .pak files are untouched.

Thanks for the help guys but i got it working by "Cheating" it.

While it displayed the "Crashed! Save level?" box i clicked "New File" and created a blank map and it suddenly worked when i restarted it. Game is still messed up but that shouldn't be a problem i think, not yet at least.

In some cases none default themes, layouts and windows can sometimes crash the editor on startup because of memory or conflicting software issues. If you ever as an example have the none default ribbon ui issue. You can reset all your sandbox settings and return it to its default state by doing the following.

1. Go to your start menu in windows and go to 'run'
2. Inside 'run' type 'regedit' and press enter
3. Navigate through the folders in 'regedit' to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Sftware/Crytek/Sandbox 3
4. Delete the 'Sandbox 3' folder to wipe all your local settings.
5. Open Sandbox again and it will be restored to factory default.

WARNING: Doing this will lose all local settings for themes, templates and general user interface layout.

This won't solve the majority of driver/gpu issues, but its worth a try and fingers crossed this might help solve any small issues people are having.

Im having the issue of when I launch the editor it says it cant find one of the application extensions but when I open up the folder and check the extension it listed is there in the folder and I also have to use the 32 bit folder because the 64 doesn't work and was confirmed by crydev and Im really unaware of what the problem is.
I've redownloaded it twice and extracted all files and it still wont work.
HELP!
