    Hi all,

    Anyone else getting hard lock-ups? I've had 2 today and they're a nuisance when you're into a long patrol.

    Non for me but whats your PC specs? Processor,speed,RAM,video,etc...

    Remember you need this as minimum--

    Also besure to download the latest patch. 1.1
    Also can you see what screen its lokcing up on?
    There is a work-a-round for particle systems which when you use the UZO it could possibly be causing your crashes.

    Yes - I got a hard lock during the deck gun exam. Very annoying - sound distorted briefly before then complete lock. Patched to 1.1

    When you installed SHIII did any of the "checks" for your system show red? Possibly 1 red mark on your system could create this problem which is showing up later.

    You can check your system specs easy with--

    Goto Start button
    In RUN type dxdiag
    Thats a DirextX diagnostic tool and will show you your complete system layout.

    This is the default systems check if you need to do that again. SHIII will see if it can run on your system.

    I got all green during the hardware check. Since the problems I've turned Sound Accel down a notch and things are OK. I also don't play on time acceleration that shows orange (1024x), only green (512x).

    Ian are you O/C at all? I know that on some games O/C flys well but on others it will lock up.

    It depends on the game sometimes.
    XP Home SP2
    Asus P5K Intel QC Q6600 GO
    OCZ DDR2 2x1GB
    EVGA 8800 GTS S/C 620MB (169.21)
    SB Audigy
    MSFF2
    CH Pedals USB

    See you in the fence...
