I'll be bowing when the crashing is fixed with a patch
The problem is not solved because you lucked out and it didn't crash (once again) before the next save point. Keep holding your breath. I've found there to be no point to play the game until it's fixed. Sure I can play it for awhile but it will crash and likely before a save point.
As Smoker 6 pointed out in another thread: "Just so you know, my PC is a P4 3.2G with 1G of RAM and a Nvidia 6800 PCI Express, and it STILL randomly crashes. It's not my PC. It's the game."

Game won't start
I've just installed the game twice.....and when I try to play it says:
Can't locate or authenticate original disc
It's the same disc I used to install it with?
the read me file said download the patch from the website,
I couldn't find a patch to down load there.

not impressed so far
Well what can I say, what I saw in screenshots, and in magazines, is nothing like what I got when I purchased this game. I just dont get it. First stuttering static like sound, then poor performance, an now to top it off, I install the new drivers, and it lock up when I start the game. I have had the game for a while now, and I havent seen or heard of any talk of a patch or anything, the FAQ for this game hasnt been updated at all, and what is with the game kicking the brightness up just before it launches the game?
I dont like the way this is looking already. Please dont tell me this is going to be another Tribes Vengeance. Please tell me this isnt going straight to abandonware this quickly. If anyone has any ideas on what IS going on let me know.
athlon XP 3000+
1GB crucial Ram
AK77-600N Mainboard (latest drivers)

oh and by the way, I paid 40 bucks for this game, and I do reserve the right to complain about its shortcomings.

Unable to Authenticate...
I just purchased and installed Snowblind for PC. The game will not start. I receive the "Unable to Authenticate original disk within time limit" error. It is an original disk. Is there a way to correct? Patch? I meet all system requirements. I ran the "Launch Analysis". What should I do next.
04-21-2005, 10:14 AM
I wouldn't worry about it anymore. The window for patching the game so that people take notice and an online community forming is nearly gone.
GG Eidos. Thanks a bunch.

Are you using the 71.89 official drivers?

What is your AGP Aperture setting in the BIOS?
Do you have Fast Writes on?
What AGP speed are you running at?
Did you uninstall your video drivers first then reboot and install new drivers?
Have you had problems with any other games?
For the people having problems with the game starting, you need to contact email@example.com
from what I have heard is that copy protection sometimes conflict with 3rd Party system DLLs and that causes these problems.

New Crash problem
Single Player. Can't remember the exact title of the game chapter, but it is the part right after Frost has spoken to the general and keyed the self destruct sequence. The next section begins with one of Frost's colleagues saying 'we left some bad guys for you.' Frost is trying to escape a room and cross the courtyard full of Republic soldiers. Just past the courtyard, the crash occured with the following references.
"A fatal error has occurred while playing Snowblind. Please refer to the Read Me for information that might help you solve this problem, or contact Eidos customer support."
It went on to say the following:
"Exception at: 23/04/2005 at 17:29:07
Exception code: Access violation (c0000005): (Write to address: 0x1f8f1000)
Exception address: 0x00f5a608

EDI = 0x1f8f1000
EIP = 0x00f5a608
ESP = 0x0032ee04
EBP = 0x052c26d0"
My rig is an Intel P4C 3.4, no overclocking. Has 2Gb of DDR400 RAM, uses ASUSTek P4S800 mobo, ATi Radeon Pro 9800 A-I-W video card. Drivers are up to date.
Whatever help you can provide on this will be appreciated because I found this segment especially challengng and was just about to get through it when this crash occurred.
Update. Two saves past the last crash. Intense, sweaty under arms firefights. I'm starting to wonder about all of the complaints against this game. Personally, I'm having a blast...uh, so to speak.
Okay, this is becoming a challenge now, defeating the Republic AND getting as far as possible before the next crash. Four more save points to "Rescue" and then a crash right after the fourth new save. Those I don't mind so much.
Update: the following day. No crashes at all today, very enjoyable playing tme.

Won't start Fix.
Eidos sent me this and it fixed my problem, still crashes though.
Thank you for your message. Follow the links below to download an updated
version of the Project: Snowblind executable files. They were released by
SecuRom to fix many problems people are having, and they may fix the problem you
are seeing. The files you are downloading will be in zipped or compressed
format. You will need to unzip/decompress them before you can copy them into the
Project: Snowblind folder. Download all 3 files to your Windows Desktop. Once
they have been downloaded, double click on each zipped folder and click on
“extract all files” located in the left hand column. Click on Next, then click
Browse and double click on “Desktop”. Click OK, then click on Next. The file
should be extracted to your desktop and placed in a Snowblind folder. Make sure
the “Show Extracted Files” box is not checked, then click on Finish. Repeat for
all 3 downloaded files. Close any windows you have open, then look on the
desktop for the Snowblind folders. Open it and right-click on the Snowblind.exe
file, left-click on Copy. Then open My Computer> C: Drive> Program Files> and
open the Project: Snowblind folder. Click on Edit and click on Paste. Repeat for
the Snowblind.sp and Snowblind.mp files. You should see a window appear saying
the folder already contains a file with that name, and asks if you wish to
replace the existing file. Click YES to proceed, then start the game using the
Windows Start menu. The game should now work.

Games does not recognize my keyboard
I just installed my game last night, and as I was about to play, I found myself "frozen". I was unable to move around, although I could fire my weapon, using my mouse. Any suggestions?
Just so you know:
I have a Dell, with a 3.2G Hyperthreading Pentium 4
Nvidia Geforce 5200 Graphics card (latest Drivers, I checked)
2G of ram

Cant join certain games
I have a P4 3.4 g with 1 g of ram and suffer from those desktop crashes with the soud loop. But I have played the game in multiplayer for some time none the less. One problem I have found is that certain games I cant join. I have noticed that when the player F22raptorpilot is in a game, I cant join it. It comes up red. I have him as a friend, and even from the Friends menu the game wont let me join the match. Only when he has left the game am I able to join. What could be the reason for this?
05-19-2005, 09:57 AM
'hey i just saw your post in eidos forum and i wanted to say yes i was having the same problem, but if you could plz post for me that i have a bellsouth 100mbps woreless connection, please. '
Posted by F22raptorpilot on the eN forums, guess his confirmation email is playing up
05-19-2005, 10:44 AM
Yea, I use a cable connection called Road Runner. Generally between 2 and 3 mbps.
06-04-2005, 11:36 PM
Yes I beleive that is the main problem with SnowBlind. Stupid Securom is really screwing up everything and I think that is what was cause everyone's problem. I found afix to get it started on another site inwhich I will not post here that fix the locking up of my computer. Ben playing the game at 1024x768 and I have not had a crash yet. I had a simular problem with Legos Starwars.
Athlon xp 2500+(Barton)
1gig pc3200 Generic
2 40g Maxtor DX740
Turtle Beach santa Cruz sound card
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128meg
As you can see some of my parts are cheap but they run everything form HL2 to Doom3 with no problems and I have all the latest drivers install includeing the CAT drivers as well. So I believe that the Securom anti copying determent is what really causing all the problems that yall are having. I mean they would have not given Jmt that link to fix a screw up that they did.
Oh and just to let you know I paid 19.95 US for the game at the local Walmart I think when it first came out it was a little more but I am not sure.
Also it is a really pretty game too.

I just got the game for 4.85$ (new and unopened) today, and I really think it's a cool game..
But I have a small problem that is:
My system looks like this:
Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519)
Language: English (Regional Setting: Danish)
System Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+, MMX, 3DNow (2 CPUs), ~2.2GHz
Memory: 2046MB RAM
DxDiag Version: 5.03.2600.2180 32bit Unicode
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT (SLi Dual)
Chip type: GeForce 7800 GT
Display Memory: 256.0 MB
Driver Name: nv4_disp.dll
Driver Version: 6.14.0010.7801 (English)
My problem is, when I play the game, it runs fine... But after 10-20 mins of playing it exits without any error...
Is this a driver problem or a Dual core problem?
