Gathering Exception Data Help please!!!

21 posts in this topic

Hello, last night I was playing some Halo CE and I exited the game and all of a sudden when I try to load it back up the game starts up than immediately closes and says gathering exception data. I didn't mess with any options or anything. I've tried running in compatibility mode, I've tried just about everything I can think of and it still says gathering exception data. Please help me out!! Thank you very much!!! 


P.s. it's a Windows 10 if that makes any difference...

Members of Open Carnage never see off-site ads.

Unfortunately that error message is for generic crashes; it doesn't tell you much.


Try using the install media to repair the CE installation?


The game is crashing before you can get to the menu, right? Do you have a ui.map mod? Try replacing your mods with the stock maps and see if the game is able to launch.


Are you using OpenSauce or HAC2 or anything?

Im using HAC2.

I'm not home to see if this is the case at the moment, but HAC2 will do that when its server is down. Try removing the loader.dll from your controls folder.

Anyone EVER has a problem with HAC2 contact me - friend me in Steam, or go to this discord: https://discord.gg/CVvwT2m


How often is this happening? I haven't had a real outage in weeks.
