• Saints Row 2 crashing on startup
    20 replies, posted
So, I bought Saints Row 2 from the Steam sale the other day, and it downloaded fine and everything, but when I try to launch it, my screen just turns black then crashes to the desktop and says "sr2_pc.exe has stopped working". I have the latest drivers for my GPU, so it can't be that. My computer meets the requirements, 2 GB of ram, 2.60 ghz dual core processor, windows 7 home premium, and GTS 250. This is the only game this has happened to. I tried running DXSETUP in the DirectX folder, didn't help. What should I do? :confused:

I've heard it is a very bad Console to PC port, so it might be that you can't run it. I have heard of people with much more powerful systems than that of yours having problems playing it.
Damn, oh well. I used to have it for the 360 and I loved it.
I would wait for a few more people to look at this and give their opinions on it though. I usually learn most of my info from things I read, and not everything is correct.
I have no idea how to help but I like your Descendants avatar.
Apparently some guys had the same problem as me, they updated their sound drivers and it worked. I might try that. [editline]09:36PM[/editline] Also, thanks dustbusta.
I've downloaded it, but haven't tried running it yet. GPU: GTX 280 CPU: i7 920 RAM: 6GB I'll try it now.

Windows 7 64bit, and i have no problems starting it up. [editline]10:41PM[/editline] Actually, i tried starting it once when i had my Q6600 with no success, so the processor might be the problem. Not sure though.
Should I try and reinstall it and see if that works?
Yes, try a reinstall. Also you might want to try posting on the SR2 forums, you might get some better answers there. Although it might not be worth it, I'm running it on 9800GTX+ with ~3Ghz dual core (amd) with 4gb RAM and I still don't get a stable frame rate, the only reason I play it is for the mods.
When I try to start it up, the screen goes black, BAM, it crashes. No logos or stuff. [editline]09:47PM[/editline] Ok, I'll try and reinstall it. [editline]09:50PM[/editline] Holy shit guys, I got it to work. I have dual monitors, so before I was going to reinstall the game, I tried one solution someone posted on a forum, I made my other monitor the main one and had Saints Row 2 launch on it, and it started up perfectly. Holy crap. :buddy: [editline]10:07PM[/editline] The cutscenes are really laggy, but the actually gameplay isn't laggy.. Strange.
I experienced exactly the same. Game runs at 60fps, cutscenes are laggy. Also, it's like it's running in fast motion, is the game supposed to be like that?
No. It's a bug with Volition's shitty ports.
Wow, this game really is a bad port. :/
Wow, it's nearly unplayabe... Cars drive so fast, it's nearly impossible to make turns without a complete stop.

There is a patch for the stupid fast car driving on Windows 7 floating about on the net. I couldn't play it on my own, but with a friend it's pretty fun with the 'gentlemen of the row' mod.
I know this is an old thread but I had the same problem and I know the solution. Go to the installation folder ( Program Files (x86)/Steam/Steamapps/Common/saints row 2 ) And then go to the DirectX folder, and look for the program DXSETUP . Its more torwards the middle. But after running that, you should be fine!
