After playing IL2 for 10- 15 minutes the graphics freeze but the sound contiues for about 30 seconds and then it loops continuously until i reset the pc i dont get a BOD and the system doesnt do a scandisk on restart.
I have set the graphics as suggested on mudmovers and have also reduced the audio to standard acceleration and minimum in game settings.
I notice in the patch notes a fix for ati freezing is listed is this the same issue?
