  3. Does this game do anything but crash?
3 years ago#1
I want to play it. The little I had the chance to play was great. The game just crashes my pc every time I try to play it. Is there any way to get this game to work properly? I saw that vsync causes problems so I disabled it and DX 11 causes issues in other games so I put it on DX 9. Still it crashes my pc. Nothing else but this game does this.

What do I need to do?

I have a gtx 680, i5 2500k CPU, and 8gb ram

The game has this many possible problems? Thanks for the assistance, but I think I'm better off just uninstalling than trial and error with all of this. It's not just crashing back to the desktop. This game made my computer blue screen. It then took a lot of coaxing to get it to boot again.

I think I'll give some of this a try though, thanks again.

Okay, this is what's regularly happening to me in the game. I managed to get it to run smoothly maybe once, but the rest of the time stuff like this happens and then my whole PC crashes to the blue screen. It's not just the game crashing to the desktop.

I've done everything in the lists that looked like it might help, but it really doesn't. The only thing I didn't try is turning off my Antivirus, but it's never caused problems with games before. So why would it cause me trouble with this one?

Does anyone with Norton have issues with this game? Please no generic Norton Antivirus hate.

all of those links were for non-relevant issues..

are you running service pack 1? most of the posts related to 'blue screens' & mp3 have this in common, and some have fixed it by merely updating to the service pack.

I'm using service pack 1. Is this a good or a bad thing? The wording of your post is unclear on that.
