"NBA Live 2004 Has Stopped Working"

Postby TF_Slayar on Wed Jun 07, 2017 9:41 am

So I just installed the game today, pretty happy about that, but when I try to select a favorite team, the game crashes. I don't know any way around this, any help?

Can you tell us a bit more about the system you're running it on? Have you copied any save/data files over from backups of an another PC?

Okay....Windows 7 Home Ultimate 64-bit, compatibility mode for Windows XP SP 3, ran as administrator. No copied saves, just started up the game.

Strange, it should definitely run without any problems. I'm not using compatibility mode on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit though, and I haven't experienced any crashes (at least since I deleted the hardware configuration file from an older PC).

I also have it installed in /Program Files(x86)/EA Sports where I also have Madden 08 and MVP baseball, in their respective folders. Do I need to have it in a specific place?

You shouldn't need to install it anywhere else, I've also installed it to the default folder under Program Files (x86).

Try placing this settings.dat file in the settings folder (found in the NBA Live 2004 folder under your Documents). It'll select the Bulls as your favourite team but you can change that, along with any other settings you choose. Hopefully, it'll get you past that initial setup/selection screen. I'm not sure what else to suggest at this time. You can extract the file using 7-Zip, if you don't already have it installed.

It works....until I try to click anything else. Could you send me the entire NBA Live 04 folder in Documents and see if it works? I hate to ask that, but I really want to play this game.

There's nothing else in there that would help, unfortunately. The other config file is for my hardware (so it'll cause a crash as well), and the default roster files which would've been installed along with the game.
