Potential Fixes For Loading Issues

Has anyone else noticed that you never get the loading problem if you are a spectator in the game?

Yesterday on my server I was a spectator for 7 maps and it loaded the maps just fine.

Yet when I am playing on my server I get the loading problem (usually) from the 3rd map (sometimes 2nd, sometimes 4th)

For me it happens on and off. Still haven't figured out what causes it, but sometimes, I load within like 10 seconds, and other times, it takes up to 3 minutes to load. Even past the 2nd wave.

if the map is just in your cache, it will take longer to load then if you have a hard copy of the map

It generally shouldn't really matter, the only logical reason for that would be if the hard disc would be fragmented so new maps get split over the hard disc.

I experience longer load times than usual on occasion, and I find that if you think the map is taking longer to load than usual, clicking the left mouse button makes it load in the next few seconds. I haven't confirmed this on other machines but it works for mine.

Hi im new and I have a problem, I go to run the killing floor (That I just got) and it said:

Runtime Error!

Program:
...am\steamapps\common\killingfloor\Systam\KillingFloor.exe

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.

If someone had the same problem or knows how to fix it pleas let me know.

Thank you.

While I'm not sure this fits here, I'm asking this on behalf of a friend of mine that I gave a guest pass to. He just downloaded the game and tried starting it for the first time, but literally nothing happens, aside from the STEAM news coming back and inviting him to buy the game. Has anyone reported this on XP OSs?

Fresh News updated FIX CROSSFIRE ?!?!?!

Fresh News updated FIX CROSSFIRE ?!?!?!

Hey TWI coder's, i might have a potentiel fix for the Direct X9 issue + Crossfire "FREEZE OF DEATH". B4 i make a move id like to have an opinion about that, is that a scam or it would work for real,

Here is the Post thread Found HERE !!!

UPDATE: 11.11 has fixed both Killing Floor and Red Orchestra. This fix is not needed anymore.
Looks like Catalyst 11.10 has extremely high gpu usage in Killing Floor, so it struggles to maintain a solid framerate when there

Hey, I'm trying to solve this issue, I can't load the game, I've reinstalled it, updated graphics drivers, tried to delete killingfloor.ini file, as recommended by someone on here, (I couldn't find the file he was talking about) and I still can't get the game to work, any ideas? Really appreciate it if you can help...

Thanks

Another thing that you can try that fixed freezing and black loading screens for me was, to run KillingFloor.exe in compatibility mode for XP. Not the shortcut, cause then steam will load in compat mode too, but just the exe in the killing floor system folder. Never freezes on loading screens for me, worth a shot if you have that issue. I run windows 7 64 bit also.
