11th Oct 2009, 21:45
I am using Vista Home Premium 32bit.
Video card is a XFX GTX 260 - drivers 191.07 WHQL
Sound card is a Creative SB X-Fi Titanium. - 2.17.7 - I am using Alchemy as well. Version 1.25.10

I bought Blood Money for $5 on steam today.

The fourth level with the Opera - the game crashes after a minute or two.
The error is hitmanbloodmoney.exe has stopped working.

The following was in the error report:

Some Googling has a bunch of XP answers where you lower sound acceleration in dxdiag. This does not work in Vista as audio in Vista is completely different.

Anyone have a work around? The game is amusing and I would like to finish it a few ways.

Possible solution - disable EAX and Alchemy. So far so good.

Sound will be crappy though but oh well it runs.
