Poker Night 2: WTF...

posted by SouthJerseySam on - last edited - Viewed by 2.3K users

How can a company who created the previous Poker Night game, the Homestar Runner games, and the Walking Dead game fuck up so badly with the development of this piece of shit? Every time I try to play the fucking game on Steam, it crashes. How the hell is this possible? I have a fully functioning computer with 8 GB of memory, about 300 GB of space out of my 1 TB hard drive. I have numerous other games on Steam (L4D 1 & 2, TF2, CS:S, CS:GO, Killing Floor, etc) and they work fine. This... wow, just fucking wow. I know they made a few updates, but it's just not good enough. It still crashes. So, please, for the love of Christ, fix the fucking problems. The first Poker Night wasn't this much of a hassle.

    Thanks. That's the same error several people had in this thread. So far the cause is unknown though, and i haven't found a workaround yet.

    Do you have any idea what might have changed on your PC since the last time it worked?

  • Nothing has changed really. I just keep trying to open the game until it actually plays. And on occasion when I am in a game, the game freezes. However, I have managed a few wins in the game, including an in-game item for TF2, which has been successfully added in the game.

    Do I understand you correctly, that the game crashes most of the time, but sometimes works after a number of tries?

    I have an idea.
    Please open the Steam client. In the menu select "help/system information".
    Right click on the information it shows and select "select all".
    Right click again and select "copy".
    Finally paste the results into a reply message in this thread by pressing CTRL-V.

    Windows Vista (64 bit)

    Your Steam client is running in Vista compatibility mode, which is known to cause these crashes.

    Please check the properties of the Steam.exe and your Steam icons and disable any compatibility mode settings.

    Once the steam client shows "Windows 7" in the system information, the game should no longer crash.

    That's unfortunate and unexpected.

    Now that steam runs as it should, it would be interesting to see if there's any change in the event viewer entry of a crash.
