Post tutorial Report RSS Last Man Standing Coop Crash Fix (Literally all of them)

Trying to join servers but getting crash instead ? , or can't start Mod because it crashes ? Okay, follow the next easy tricks and you'll get yourself into the mod with ease .

Posted by on - Basic Starting a mod

For some reason, Last Man Standing mod crashes on some graphics cards if you start it from Ingame Menu, not sure if this is a bug, but you can easily fix it this way .

Also, for those who don't know, you can get the mod Here (Multiplatform) . Do not use Windows version windows users, because it will certainly cause grabber error if you try to start ROE Server .

The following methods may work with many other modifications too ;) .

Summary :

  1. Running the Mod without getting crash on Steam copies
  2. Running the Mod without getting crash on CD Retail copies
  3. If you really don't know what to do
  4. ROE Grabber error fix
  5. Joining Servers without getting crash on Steam copies
  6. Joining Servers without getting crash on CD Retail copies
  7. Joining ROE Servers without getting crash on Steam copies
  8. Joining ROE Servers without getting crash on CD Retail copies
  9. For servers that use Different Modfolder name

Parts 4 and 5 are only for servers that require an engine restart, You can still join other servers (that don't require engine restart) without following Parts 4 or 5

Steam users may wonder "Why do we need this exe ?", well simple, Because steam would ruin the trick if you try to run the mod with the Default steam exe, you're gonna need this exe (which i have exported right from 1.3.1 Patch) .

A - Running the mod Without getting crash (Steam) :

  1. Get this exe "hqmod.exe" and copy it to your game folder .
  2. Add it as a Non steam game to your Steam Library .
  3. Right Click it and press "Properties"
  4. Click "Set Launch Option"
  5. Add the following commands : +set fs_game lms4
  6. Close and Run

A2 - Running the mod Without getting crash (CD Retail) :

  1. Create a separate Shortcut for DOOM 3 .
  2. Right click the Shortcut and press "Properities"
  3. Add the following command to the "Target" option after "Doom3.exe" : +set fs_game lms4
  4. Save .
  5. Double click the Shortcut and play :) .

A3 - If you really don't know what to do :

If you really don't know what to do, just do what's below, Steam users won't get their Steam overlay however so i recommend all steam users to follow Methods A or B instead .

  1. Locate your Doom3/LMS4 folder
  2. Run "lms4.bat" or "lms4_roe.bat"
  3. Play

A4 - Resurrection of Evil (grabber) error fix :

You need the Multiplatform version to fix this error, somehow the developers forgot to fix this for Windows version .

Engine restart crash solution : Some servers don't crash the game since they don't require a game restart, but if they did, join them this way .

B - Joining Servers Without getting crash (Steam) :

Make sure to remove odd files that you have manually added or downloaded from other servers from base, lms4 and d3xp folders, then follow the next instructions :

  1. Get this exe "hqmod.exe" and copy it to your game folder .
  2. Add it as a Non steam game to your Steam Library .
  3. Right Click it and press "Properties"
  4. Click "Set Launch Option"
  5. Add the following commands : +set fs_game lms4 +connect IP_ADRESSE_OF_SERVER
  6. Close and Run

B2 - Joining Servers Without getting crash (CD Retail) :

Make sure to remove odd files that you have manually added or downloaded from other servers from base, lms4 and d3xp folders, then follow the next instructions :

  1. Create a separate Shortcut for DOOM 3 .
  2. Right click the Shortcut and press "Properities"
  3. Add the following command to the "Target" option after "Doom3.exe" : +set fs_game lms4 +connect IP_ADRESSE_OF_SERVER
  4. Save .
  5. Double click the Shortcut and play :) .

Of course you can get Servers IPs right from ingame (by selecting them) or external sites Like Gametracker , EMZ ... etc ( i recommend Gametracker :) ) .

B4 - Join ROE Servers without getting Crash (Steam) :

  2. Add the Following commands "Target" option after "Doom3.exe" : +set fs_game_base d3xp +set fs_game lms4 +connect IP_ADRESSE
  3. Close and Run

B5 - For servers that use different Modfolder name :

Make sure to remove odd files that you have manually added or downloaded from other servers from base, lms4 and d3xp folders, then follow the next instructions :

I Noticed that there are some servers that use the same mod version (4.0) but a different Modfolder name, there is a simple way to fix this, Make a copy of LMS4 Modfolder and name it lms, then join the desired server by following Either method B or B2 .

You can also download it right from server ingame if Downloading files from server is allowed .

Q&A :

Q - Still getting crash after this, why ?

A - Make sure you have updated your Graphics card driver, Your game to v1.3.1 , and that you're running it in "Windows XP SP3 Compatibility mode"

- If it didn't work, try reinstalling Doom 3, update it to v1.3.1 and see if it'll work .

- Also try to restart your PC, this might sound like a stupid solution, but it solved it to me several times .

Q - Does this work for BFG Edition ?

A - No
