I was getting lock ups/hangs whenever I clicked the FLY button. The game would stop responding and I would have to Ctrl-Alt-Delete to get out of the game. Sometimes I would have to reboot my system to get out.
Anyway, I switched my display mode to windowed mode by unclicking Full Screen in the Graphics menu just in case it happened again. This way I could easily close Lock-On if it happened again. And don't be dis-illusioned with not having it full screen. When in windowed mode the only difference is that I see my windows taskbar while playing te game. Now, I can live with that until this problem is fixed.
After unchecking Full Screen the game ran fine. No more hanging/freezing at the loading screen.
And to make things even more weird...when I intitally tried this, it ran in windowed mode as described above, but now for some reason it's running in Full Screen Mode even with the Full Screen box unchecked. Go figure? So that's how I got it to run. Maybe it will work for you maybe it won't. I just wanted to try and help as I know the frustrations you are going thru.
Good Luck and remember, it will be worth your troubles. Lock-On is not only fun, but it's outright Gorgeous!!
