Whenever I enter Dark Age of Camelot, the game suddenly boots out to the desktop or I get the message "A serious error has occured". What could be causing this and what can I do to fix it?

If you are using a GeForce based card, particullarly a GeForce 2 or earlier there is an option enabled called "Enable fog table emulation". It is advised to turn this feature off, if you are experiencing the above error. Please perform the below tasks to disable this option:




Right click on your Windows desktop enviornment and select properties.



Next, click on the settings tab and then click on the advanced tab.



Next, click on the card models name tab ie: "GeForce2 MX". Next, under performance and quality click on Direct3D settings. Uncheck the option for"enable fog table emulation".

It is also advised to set your monitors refresh rate to at least 75Hz. To do this please perform the following below options:



Right click on your Windows desktop enviornment and select properties.



Next, click on the settings tab and then click on the advanced tab.



The last thing you will need to do is click on the monitor tab and select 75Hz from the monitor settings section. Please note, some older monitors cannot handle above 75Hz and will black out. If this does happen, reboot into safe mode *F8 on bootup* and go back and change your resolution to a known working one. If you are playing Dark Age of Camelot on an LCD screen, it is advised to run the monitor in it's "native resolution state". Please refer to the monitor manufacturer for that information.


Another solution that has recently come up has been "re-seating" your network card to the 3rd PCI slot, or the 3rd slot from your AGP video card. Many players have had IRQ conflicts which was the result of their CTD. The AGP slot is using IRQ 11, which in turn had users with their NIC in PCI slot 2 ALSO using IRQ 11. This should be a last resort method if none of the above solutions have helped.
