Hello, well, all is in the title.

The game crashes to Windows when I'm crossing a Lagrange point. If my memory is good, it's when/before the video about is launching.

Maybe it's the problem? The "videos" files is empty on my disk.

I'm using the "nGlide alternative wrapper".

Thanks :)
Might try reinstalling the game if the videos folder is empty since there is supposed to be a clip showing you goin through the point.

My videos folder is also empty, and I just redownloaded and reinstalled.

What goes in there?
Woops. I forgot to ask WHICH video folder because there is two of them. The one on top is empty on mine but the one in psg/resource/video is filled.
Im having the same problem, the video folder in Iwar directory is empty, however iwar\resource\psg is full of video files.

If you've installed the game in the program files folder try installing it outside that folder - weird things can happen with older games like I-War when they're installed in program files due to the security features of newer windows versions.
I had the same problem. I fixed it by downgrading the compatibility mode from Windows 98/ME to Windows 95.

* Right-click on the icon
* Select "Properties"
* Select the "Compatibility" tab.
* Make sure the "Run this program in compatibility mode" is checked (it should be), but change the selection box to "Windows 95".
Hi guys, i know this is an old thread but i am hoping for some answers - i am getting this exact problem, it is not every time i cross a lagrange point but very often.

I have tried changing the compatibility settings on the exe and no dice.

I checked the windows event logs and it turns out the error coming back is a 0xc0000094 exception code, this corresponds to a divide by 0 error.

Any ideas how i might be able to fix it?

It's driving me nuts!

Can you post your system info, like processor, ram, overclocking (if any), operating system etc.? It might give us a clue where to look.
Although I have the same problem (linux using wine, did not test under windows yet).
Defiance does not seem to have this problem.
Hey everybody !
I had the same problem in most of the missions,i tried the compatibily mode win95 in windows 7 : it doen't work
I tried to change the files from Defiance as mentioned in the i-war FAQ thread : The game crash before the mission start ...
And then i passed a Lagrange point with the turret view (press shift + F3) and It's works !!!
I hope it will works for you, what a wonderful game ! :)

Sadly, does not work for me (Win 10 Pro).

I tried everything - from switching Win95/98/Me/XP compatibility modes, nGlide, dgVoodoo2, ... camera angles, software mode, fullscreen, windowed ... nothing works. Game still crashes.

Next stop for me is to re-install XP on an old harddrive.

I have read, the same bug/crash happens on Linux with WINE. So THAT option is not an option, neither.

I run literally over a 1000 games on this PC (from 1980s titles to the lastest AAA games). Rarely does anything have this kind of reproducable, most obvious bug ... which nobody seems to care about fixing?

Truly, a shame to let a "Good Old Game" die that kind of death ... while still being sold, telling people "Works on:Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 10)"

Have you tried single processor affinity?
I don't think multicore cpu's were a thing back then and there are games that don't run well on multicore cpu's.
There is a simple script you can put into a shortcut so the game runs on a single cpu core.

Put this in the target of the shortcut, where xx is 01 and Your_Program.exe should be something like eoc.exe.

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /C start "" /affinity xx "C:\Your_Program.exe"

Strijkbout: Have you tried single processor affinity?
I have already set affinity to one core as default. Does not matter.

Still, thanks for trying to help. Suddenly, the ONE game that is not running (I-War) has turned into the ONE game I want to play, out of all the one's, I have installed recently.

[EDIT] (for those, who might stumble over A) this issue and B) look for a solution:

To my surprise, the game RUNS PASSED THE LAGRANGE CRASH(!) ON LINUX WITH WINE!

Instead an instant crash, you now get a short in-game ship 'flash' effect before and after jumping through "Hyperspace". In between the short (Bink) video runs just fine.

The game on Linux/WINE also runs with the nGlide Wrapper on my 1080p screen (I just copy-pasted the Windows 10 installation of I-War to my Linux drive, with the nGlide Wrapper and Glide dlls already in the game root folder. No fuss.

I just played it several times. "Hyperjumps" work now and I was able to get passed the "Adv Navigation" tutorial mission.

FInally, I can play the game, I missed out on, when it came out!

Linux Specs:
Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
wine-4.0-rc6 (Staging)
GOG version of I-War
