I have this problem too. The game crashes with this message for no reason. I'm using 10.4a drivers.
Bioshock 1 and 2 use the same engine and I get way over 60FPS on those games. There is absolutely no excuse for low performance and crashes. The crashes are so random. I don't even ask for multiplayer. I would be happy if they just fix the crashing so I can finish deniable ops for crying out loud. Then I'll move on to multiplayer if I feel like playing with strangers. But the game just crashes for no reason. Really Ubisoft, how about a response to your faithful customers once in a while. You used to care once.
Windows 7 Ultimate 32Bit
q6600 3.0Ghz I tried with default 2.4
ASUS HD4850 1Gb
2Gb DDR2 800Mhz
I'd like to add in that, whenever I change my graphic settings or resolution or anything and press back, the Game Launcher just shuts down. I hate this thing and should be removed. When it shuts off I'm back at my desk top or, there won't be a Game Launcher.
A memory leak is a particular type of memory consumption by a computer program where the program is unable to release memory it has acquired.
A memory leak can diminish the performance of the computer by reducing the amount of available memory. Eventually, in the worst case, too much of the available memory may become allocated and all or part of the system or device stops working correctly, the application fails, or the system slows down unacceptably.
Simply put, Conviction is using too much of your RAM and eventually it wants to use more then you have. That's when the game crashes. The longer you play the more RAM it will use, and you could notice FPS drops before your game crashes. But memory leak behavior is unpredictable, so one day you might be able to play for 2 hours before it crashes, and the next day you might only play for 20 minutes.
