Hitman 2 content is crashing on Phenom 2 CPUs


#22

I don’t have a Phenom, but I do have an AMD processor and I’m running into exactly the same problem, so my specs might be helpful to the devs trying to debug this.
CPU: AMD Athlon X4 860K
GPU: Nvidia GTX 780
16 gigs of RAM, Windows 10.

I can play the season 1 missions fine, but the season 2 missions crash after attempting to start the level. Cheers, and thanks.

Hi!

Just to clear things up it is not Denuvos fault.

I know because its my code that is causing the crash. I’m sorry for causing you to wait - Please be rest assured that this will be fixed as soon as possible.

Thanks for the response, can’t wait to play! Love your work!

Hi Jonas, thanks for the follow-up, and being straight-forward enough to own the issue. I know better than to ask for a specific timeline, so I’ll just be waiting patiently and hoping it’s all sorted out before old Mr. Bean makes his escape :sweat_smile:

Thanks again, this has been a point of stress since the 8th! I’ll edit my post to get rid of Denuvo blame and frustrated complaining, no need to conflate the issue.

Heres some more details:

One of the things we added for Season 2 was a software rasterizer to aid in culling objects that are not visible.
The code we based it on used a few(3!) instructions categorized under SSE4.1. Phenom only supports SSE3.

The reason it does not crash on Season 1 & Sniper challenge is that those levels use the previous occlusion system, which means never runs the code that is incompatible with Phenom.

Hi Jonasm. Many thanks for clarifying. I absolutely love this game and will wait patiently for your fix! I just sincerely hope Sean Bean doesn’t escape! Hyped for the explosive pen. I will update my post on steam to clarify as well that it isn’t Denuvo’s fault this time.


#32

Are you hand writing ASM, or is it a compiler optimization that chooses SSE4.1 instructions?

Edit: if anyone is interested in a little technical details about the ‘culling’ Jonas is referring to:

Seems to be working perfectly, played Hawke’s Bay and Miami for a while, problem free.

Performance is also way better than the legacy levels.

Thanks so much for fixing this, guys!
