Running 1.02 update:
DX10 exe = just get blank screen after launch, have to ctrl + alt + del and have the dump error in the background.
DX9 exe = Get the first teen warning screen or whatever and then it just freezes with same error in background. Also tried running as admin in Vista SP2 compatibility mode
Updated to latest NVIDIA drivers with same issue. Reset the saved game folder with same issue. I dont have any problems with any other "high end" DX10 / 9 games.
I have had the game for a long time and just reinstalled it. When I had it running ok was on my 8800GTX w/ Vista. I cannot believe there is not a single DX10 fix anywhere out there. Ive search everywhere I can think of and the only "fix" I could find was to just use the DX9 in compatibility mode which does not work. I would really like to run the game in DX10 considering all my software / hardware supports it.
Hey I am not sure, but I am looking at the supported video cards list and maybe thats the reason for the crash. Maybe you need one of those cards on there. But then again, why is it doing fine on my computer and then crashing halfway through?
