SH4 crashes after about 20 min. playing the game. I have a Quad CPU 2,4 GHZ with vista and a Radeon X1950 pro video card with the latest driver update en patch 1.04 downloaded. Can someone give me advise what i can do about it?

Have same problem, similar machine, i have tried everything in the forums etc. So far the over all this I have found mine is a heat prob. SH4 is a monster, even more taxing than FSX. I think its a heat prob, try lowering LOD setting and postfilter. I dont use outside view so i turned off the reflections on boat too. It runs far longer with no prob. So I figure its heat. Temps on IR temp probe where high on the cpu. After lowering much lower.

thanks, you where right. it takes longer when it crashes. But still!. Do you know if there are any adjustmunts to make for the videocard itself? I thought this card was heavy enough to play this game.

Not really, Mine still ctd's but its not a BSOD anymore. Personally I think it's pointing toward compaibility issues and UBI needs to check into it. I am going to find a UBI title of same year and see how that works. The CTD's happen everytime I play. But sometimes I can play for a good hour.

Oh here's one for ya FSX Maxed out gets loacked solid 35 FPS over KJFK, on VATSIM. So its not a system problem. Maybe just not happy with Vista yet. Hopefully UBI gets on the ball. So they dont get a name like Screw-Mi...LOL

Nothing at all seems to keep this game from crashing to desk top. I have done everything. I guess it gets deep sixed and I'll got find the refund line.

I am running XP Home SP2 on a 2.4GHz Q6600, 2GB Kingston Ram and an nVidea 8800GT and I am getting the same trouble. Temp monitoring software shows cpu core gets up to around 48 deg C but I doubt that is causing the crash. I am also rung SH4 with the latest updates and machine seems fine in all other respects. Is UBI looking into the problem to save all the grief of spoiling a cracking game.

Yep looks more like junk software. I slapped in a spare drive and did fresh xp everything, still only 20 mins tops befor CTD. Prob last UBI title i wll ever purchase. Real shame as it's such a nice game.
