    Amazing. Down for a week with this issue. Uninstalled Internet Explorer down to the most basic version to get the hack software to work so I could play. Now a new patch and this error is back again. Worst patching game ever.

      I can confirm, on WIndows XP x64 that after downgrading IE8 to IE 7, i can play properly(no more xtrap timeout).

          I am also getting the "Timed out waiting for initialing xtrap-engine". I'm not sure which bugs me more, the error or "initialing"...

          Personally, I don't believe this error has anything to do with anti-virus software. I don't use and anti-virus software when i'm gaming ever. I also have windows firewall turned off. Just to be on the safe-side I added everything I could related to crossfire in the exceptions lists (xtrap included). So heres my information which I hope helps.

          OS: Windows XP Professional x64
          RAM: 4096 (4 GB)
          CPU: AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual 4000+
          GPU: Nvidia GeForce 260 GTX

          Things i've tried:

          I'm pretty tech savvy so I always keep my drivers up-to-date. Not sure if this is a driver related issue or not. I've attempted to roll-back my drivers several times. Deleteing everything rebooting for a clean install everytime.

          The versions i've tried are:
          174.16
          174.53
          174.74
          182.50
          185.85
          186.18
          191.07
          195.62

          I couldn't find anymore in my downloads folder so I stopped trying. Anyway, none of these seemed to have any effect on the problem so I went back to the latest version.

          My Bios and chipset drivers are also all current. Since this isn't a game breaking bug none of what im saying is probably relavent, even so i'll go on.

          Redownloaded the setup from the main site.

          Uninstalled crossfire

          Deleted all files related to crossfire and xtrap

          opened regedit and deleted all registry keys related to crossfire and xtrap

          ran Registry Mechanic and CCleaner to make sure I didn't miss anything

          Restarted

          Reinstalled crossfire via the new download

          Ran the game and got the same error.

          Now, I don't know the OS of the other people with the problem but I know that several programs have problems with 64bit systems. This could be a problem with xtrap and 64bit systems?

          I might open up some files later in the month and see whats messing up if the issue isn't fixed by then. Something that might be notable, after the initial patch that implemented xtrap I was able to play the game fine. After either a mini crossfire patch or an xtrap update (not sure which I wasn't paying attention) is when my error happened.

          I'll post later this month when I have time with what I find. If the issue hasn't been solved by then.

          EDIT: Read somewhere that downgrading IE 8 to IE 6 fixed the problem for some people. IMHO this is NOT a viable solution to this problem. This seems like extremly poor coding on the xtrap devs part if this does indeed fix the issue. I have not tried this solution and will not try it either. It is something I'm going to look into though. (Yes, I LOVE tinkering and diving into files to see what makes the programs tick... or... not tick in this case...)

              As i PMed [GM]Saidin some time ago, I uninstalled IE8 using c:\windows\ie8\spunininst. Xtrap timeout was gone.

              After 2 days, by mistake, I let install some IE7 security updates. Xtrap timeout returned.

              Uninstalled the following IE7 updates:

              KB976325
              http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec.../ms09-072.mspx

              KB938127
              http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sec.../ms07-050.mspx

              Bang, Xtrap timeout was gone once again. So these 2 updates are messing Xtrap somehow. It should be important info for devs.

              As stated before, I also have Windows XP x64.

              Again, this issue is not related in any way to the video driver.

              Hope this helps.

                1. What Anti Virus program are you using?
                I am using Avast Home Edition.

                2. Have you added any X-trap or game files to an exception list?
                i have just taken my firewall off.

                3. Have you tried disabling the virus program during installation and running of the game?
                Yes i disabled virus protection, spyware protection, system guards, and the fire wall.


                I have played the fully updated version once, and now every time I want to play it tries to update, nothing happens then the X-trap and HGW pop up they dont do anything then it says "Some function of the operating system have been corrupted. Please, close any program which is affecting the game client and restart the system". The Code_Field is 08-0400-00000000-502( by the way i am running widows xp sp3 and i have reinstalled crossfire)

                and p.s. can you fix this problem with x-trap because i am losing my zp items that i bought with my own money and now they will be gone before i can play again >

                  Cool, I'll try this when I get home from work. I have been running IE6 on XP64bit so Crossfire will work and it's annoying to say the least.

                    I never thought it did but I was troubleshooting so I figured i'd just do it anyway.

                    I decided to go ahead and uninstall IE 8 as I have no problem with IE 7. After which, the game ran perfectly again. Glad I didn't have to go back to IE 6. (I wouldn't have anyway)

                    It seems this issue is indeed a 64bit problem which is unfortunate. Hopefully the xtrap devs will work this out and I can upgrade to IE 8 again.

                      1. What Anti Virus program are you using?

                      AVG

                      2. Have you added any xtrap or game files to an exception list?

                      I added all of them

                      3. Have you tried disabling the virus program during installation and running of the game?

                      I tryed reinstalling, there was no change.
                      Then I disabled the antivirus, uninstalled crossfire, deleted the folder, redownloaded and installed. Ran it and still got the error message.

                      For what its worth: I was in the same windows session while I was playing just fine. For whatever reason I closed the game and started it up later and got this error message (it had already running with xtrap for a couple of days). The only thing that I can think of that changed between it working to getting this message was I was trying to customize some of my mouse settings for my logitec mouse. After I finished in the logitec menu I restarted crossfire and got the error message.

                          You're definatley on to something. I went in and uninstalled update KB976325. (I had a "KB938127 - v2" so I just left that alone.) Interestingly while I was doing the uninstall it warned me that it would affect my setpoint logitec program which is what I was tinkering with in the half hour between when cross fire was working and when I got the error. It said that the update was installed on 12/9 but didn't have the error until 12/13. Setpoint must have done something in conjunction with the security update to make CrossFire not work.

                          Uninstalled the update, restarted, and now CrossFire is running like a dream.....

                          Timeline:
                          12/9 security update KB976325 is installed
                          12/13 appx 3:00 pm CrossFire works fine
                          12/13 appx 3:30 pm exit game to adjust mouse settings in setpoint
                          12/13 appx 3:35 pm load game to get error message.
                          12/14 uninstalled update and CrossFire works fine again.

                            Meh, it was fine and I rebooted again and I continue to get the message. I checked to see if the update reinstalled, I uninstalled setpoint. Nothing seems to work. Odd that it helped at first...

                              There must be some other troublesome update.

                              Just make sure you uninstall IE8 via "C:\WINDOWS\ie8\spuninst\spuninst.exe", then reboot.
                              Be careful not to let any IE7 update install via Windows update.

                              If that update does take place, uninstall all IE7 updates from "C:\WINDOWS\ie7updates" using also the spuinst.exe in each one's folder, then reboot.

                              Again, be careful not to let IE7 updates slip through.

                              Hopefully devs will figure out what the problem is soon and we will be able to reinstall IE8 and updates.

                              Hope this helps.
