Try the following open your redorchestra.ini

find this:

[Engine.Engine]
RenderDevice=D3D9Drv.D3D9RenderDevice
;RenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=Engine.NullRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=PixoDrv.PixoRenderDevice

and try changing it to:

[Engine.Engine]
;RenderDevice=D3D9Drv.D3D9RenderDevice
RenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=Engine.NullRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=PixoDrv.PixoRenderDevice

quote]


This fix worked for me.

Same problem--log file blank, steam updated, RO busted

Same problem--log file blank, steam updated, RO busted

Same problem : run time error on RO.exe requested unusual shutdown.

RedO.log file is empty.
Steam is fully updated.
Restarting does nothing.

This is the SteamStats log;
1188444083: SteamStart 593
1188444087: SteamLogin 971e656a90593aea86fbee2539f56b3

1188444138: GameEnd 1200 0 RunFrame
1188444177: SteamEnd 0


OS is fully patched Win XP Pro. Everything worked great before patch. Post patch nothing works.

The file @ C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\red orchestra\System
RedOrchestra.log is blank.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

=========> Problem solved by:

Do the replacement suggested above, specifically,

[Engine.Engine]
RenderDevice=D3D9Drv.D3D9RenderDevice
;RenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=Engine.NullRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=PixoDrv.PixoRenderDevice

[Engine.Engine]

RenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=Engine.NullRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=PixoDrv.PixoRenderDevice

Worked (!) Thanks!

Have all of you tried to delete your RO/System folder and verify cache?

Radeon 9200 128M Video Card:

[Engine.Engine]
RenderDevice=D3D9Drv.D3D9RenderDevice
;RenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=Engine.NullRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=PixoDrv.PixoRenderDevice

[Engine.Engine]
;RenderDevice=D3D9Drv.D3D9RenderDevice

;RenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=Engine.NullRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice
;RenderDevice=PixoDrv.PixoRenderDevice

was the magical cure for mine - verify worked ok, but still had same errors.
Changing that 1 line was a magical fix though....

(btw- greet Zets, now I know why your name looked familiar to me!!)

Well, I really am glad that fix is working for other people, because this is a very frustrating problem.

But it's not working for me. Same error message. What the hell? :confused::(

This fix worked for me.

Try if you can get it to work using:
RenderDevice=D3D9Drv.D3D9RenderDevice

but disabling bloom in the settings (how you can see on last page). I just wonder if that fixes it aswell. Because the D3D9 patch is a bit more optimized although your card is a dx8 card if it worked before you can probably get it to work by disabling bloom.

^If that was for me, I'm not sure what you were asking me to do.

I've tried everything else listed in this thread, and I'm still getting the same error message. This is very discouraging.

i think in your case that either a program is having a problem with ro or something of ro is corrupted.

If you got fast internet you can try a complete steam whipe and reinstall
