I have recently had some problems with crashes to desktop in SHIII. I'd say it happens on around one out of three patrols, slightly more often in multiplayer.

It is quite maddening, as I may play a patrol for 30 or 45 minutes before a sudden crash.

My system specs follow:

Gigabyte nF4 K8NF-9 w/newest BIOS factory installed

Athlon 3500+ Winchester

6800GT PCIe w/newest nVdia drivers user installed

SBAudigy, newest drivers user installed

And that would seem to be it. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as this is very annoying!

Have you got the latest patch version installed ?.

As far as i know, it is version 1.2.

I had simular problems myself, but since installing this patch, my system hasn`t crashed yet.

I can,t say that it won,t crash with this patch installed, but so far it is looking good.

I've been fortunate and just recently suffered my first CTD after a month of gaming. On that ocassion it was actually beneficial since I had a banquet to get ready for and I just couldn't tug myself away from the game!
