    On my pc it randomly crashes either on start or in the middle of a level which is pretty annoying.

    Further the framerate is capped at 30 fps and there are no options for anti-aliasing, anistropic filtering or vsync. Further more the control settings is at default not really suitable for pc players. Fortunatley you can at least turn off auto mouse scrolling.

    As much as I like the game and its idea by itself, the programming work is just poor. Seems they just wanted the console-version fast for pc, quality does not matter. Yet worse it's not just like any bad console-port with non-pc-like controls, no it just does not work correctly which makes me angry.

    It seems on Steam you can get a refund for this game:

    Right now I am considering this option although I'd like to see the end of the game. I hope Ubi is working hard on a good update.

    my pc:
    Phenom II X4 3,4GHz
    GTX 560 Ti
    8GB DDR3 1600

    Same problem here, have disabled firewall etc..
    After the game start from the launcher it crashes right after the ubisoft intro.

    Here is my debug output, problem might be that I can't seem to capture debug output from the launched problem from the launcher.

    I should have downloaded it from kickasstorrents instead of paying for it. I meet and exceed the minimum requirements in all but my CPU and the game should work. I will never purchase a game for download again. At least if I had gone to a pirate site I wouldn't feel so ripped off.

    I just did what Ubi advises. Graphics and sound drivers have to be up-to-date.I just updatet my Realtek soundcard and my creative usb gaming headset. My Nvidia driver was up-to-date already (280.26).

    And what can I say? The first thing From Dust does after rebooting is CRASHING even before intro. After 5 trys I got it to work. WTF is this bug?

    My graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce 6150SE nForce 430, which seems to meet even that stupid requirement and it still crashes

    Check to make sure everything is updated BS... you know make sure your computer is turned on, lol.

    From what I can gather is a majority of the cards out there are not supported. I came across this list yesterday.

    *Supported Video Cards at Time of Release:
    ATI RADEON HD 3000 / 4000 / 5000 / 6000 series
    NVIDIA GeForce 8800 / 9 / 100 / 200 / 300 / 400 / 500 series
    Laptop versions of these cards may work but are NOT supported. These chipsets are the only ones that will run this game.

    Crossfire or SLI-equipped systems may run the game but are not supported. It is recommended to use a single card while playing From Dust.

    You're making jokes, right? Of course an onboard GeForce 6 GPU is not supported by this game . Where does this meet the requirements? Minimum graphics as is stated on the steam store page is a 8800 GT or a HD 3800. An onboard GPU is nothing compared to that espacially a six year old onboard gpu like a GeForce 6150.

    Ok the progamming done here on this game is poor. But expecting any game to run on such a old crap graphics (yes even 6 years ago 6150 was crap) is just funny .
