    Hello AMS veterans
    Havent played AMS for a while but wanted to compare with AMS2 now. But for some strange reason it doesn't run any more. Somtimes it crashes directly when startin with messages like gMotor2 error: cant create vertex shader or some C++ error
    But mostly crashes while trying to load a track (any game mode) without any messge. Event Log (hope this is the correct translation, in german: "Ereignisanzeige") is stating missing modules nvd32dum.dll or NPClient.dll.
    No idea for what reason those files are needed or what programs are installing them.
    What i did so far:
    - removing all mods
    - checking game files
    - removing AMS completely and re installing
    - re installing DirectX (coming with the game)
    - (re) installing every C++ redist package i could get my hands on
    everything without success.
    Is there some start.log where i probably could get further information what's going on? Couldn't find any.

    I do really like AMS2 but because of my ancient PC i can do hotlapping without problems, but more than 6-7 AI opponents isn't really fun.
    So i would like to be able to play AMS again, until i can afford a more powerful CPU.

    Any further ideas what i could also try?

    Any help would be welcome

    CHEERS

    Hi,

    I had similar problem after I replaced my NPClient.dll for FaceTrackNoIR with newer, 64-bit version from OpenTrack. AMS wouldn't start anymore, and after trying many things I finally saw errors in Windows event log:
    Faulting module name: NPClient.dll, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x526cd113

    Replacing dll with the original one fixed it for me.

    For above errors I don't know, but you may also try reinstalling GPU drivers.
