    Since about December, when I hit PLAY on the game Bad Piggies, it has crashed every single time. It used to play just fine. I have tried numerous ways of fixing the problem , ( uninstalling and re installing numerous times, registry cleaner, dll fixer. ) Nothing works. I went in to the crash reports and the error log gives the following:

    Unity Player [version: Unity 3.5.6f4_b81e0151ec83]

    BadPiggies.exe caused an Access Violation (0xc0000005)
    in module BadPiggies.exe at 001b:00000000.

    Error occurred at 2013-02-12_230122.
    C:\PROGRA~1\Rovio\Bad Piggies\BadPiggies.exe, run by Administrator.
    15% memory in use.
    3064 MB physical memory [2597 MB free].
    0 MB paging file [0 MB free].
    2048 MB user address space [1450 MB free].
    Read from location 00000000 caused an access violation.

    etc etc and the output log has :

    GfxDevice: creating device client; threaded=1
    d3d: no support for this device type (accelerated/ref)
    D3D9 initialization failed, trying OpenGL
    GfxDevice: creating device client; threaded=1
    Version: OpenGL 1.4 [1.4.0 - Build]
    Renderer: Intel 915G
    Vendor: Intel
    VRAM: 64 MB (via fallback)

    etc etc

    So I reinstalled direct x 9, and nothing , still crashes..
    My page file is set at 3063 mb, i did have a set size but just recently set it to System Managed Size
    I tried playing a different game- Need for speed world but it tells me that there is no direct x 9 device, however when I go to control panel -- intel GMA driver it gives me this:

    Report Date: 02/13/2013

    Processor Speed: 3000 MHZ
    Vendor ID: 8086

    so is there direct x 9 on my computer or not?

    well TODAY, I was watching a Shakira video (using VLC 2.0.5) that Ive had on my computer for a LONG time and I noticed that the song has the audio but no video. :eek:This happens only on that one song, and no others. I did notice that this particular song is an .mp4 . My computer had always played some .mp4 formats choppy while others play with no problem.


    Any advice is appreciated
