My game crashes after 15-20mins of play time. Is there anything I can do attempt to hold off the crashes? Every hour wouldn't be so bad.
My specs are: AMD 3.6ghz 965 quad cpu, 16gb DDR3 1600 vengeance ram by corsair, ASUS crosshair IV m/b, HD 5870 ati card 1gb by XFX, 64bit windows 7, X-Fi sound blaster 7.1 sound, WD cavier black 7600rpmg 750gb hardrive, high speed cable internet. My machine is stable and bug free so...
I run the game ins 1600x900 because that's my monitors default setting.
Edit* I have every thing graphical in game set to the maximum and my video game is set to highest quality. If I set things down would that help at all?
when I first bought the game a few weeks ago, I was also crashing every 20 minutes or so.
I was using vista 32 bit at the time, and decided to upgrade to 7-64bit
My crashes stopped completely, so I assumed it was that. But you know what else I did at that time, that I didn't even really think of too much until reading your post? I yanked my x-fi card in favor of onboard sound since i couldn't get my x-fi working right in 7 and didn't really want to mess with it for too long, I just wanted to get back in game fast, so I yanked it.
May or may not be related, there was a Xsyon patch during the time I installed 7 as well, so maybe they just happened to nip my crashing with that... not sure.
worth a shot though maybe disabling the x-fi to see if you can isolate the reason. If it works, that'll be two of us it worked for and might help them resolve it
Good luck with it. I was there and know how frustrating it is to re-enter the game every 15-20 minutes.
The graphics being set down really didn't help. I will try the sound card.... man I hope it works. I am not lazy or anything, but it takes me 5mins to load back into the game so each crash in this game is so annoying. I mostly just walk away form the PC for a bit. I can't get much done in game.
