When I tried to rappel from the tower the game crashes.
I tried it a few times, now the entire game crashes at start up.

So far I did not have any trouble with the game.

I have a high end dual core with an 8800 gtx.

Sorry to hear about the problem. Are you getting an error message of anything? Is it crashing at exactly the same moment each time? What exactly happens when it crashes?

Also, could you provide a little more detailed info on your system?

It crashed every time after the first rappel downward.

Last night after several reboots I found out that in this scene (so after you cleared the platform) you first should not touch any key or move the mouse. Just let the story do its script. After that continue to rappel downward with the team.

I managed to do this, but within 2 minutes the game started crashing again. This time during every scenario.

I managed to get further. Seems rebooting lets me in again. Untill it crashes.

Weird thing. I get a error and fixed message about my display device.
I have lates drivers. I also have the latest microsoft vista updates.

If I do not reboot, I already get stuck on the first clicks in the menu.

Regards,

Arno

Here's a long shot, have you tried altering the hardware acceleration for your sound device in your dxdiag?

Try it on both maximum and minimum. Also if you haven't already, please make sure you've got minimal stuff in the background, like no CD burning stuff of the dreaded Window Blinds. It's worth a go, let me know how you get on and if you draw a blank I'll call for some back up tomorrow.

Aha.

In my diagdx there is no directx options for my sound. No possabilityto change anything.

I have Soundmax Integrated Digital (ADI).

I have no idea how to alter the accelartion for it.

Maybe that is the problem.

Hmm, let me look into it tomorrow and I'll get back to you.

Apparently there is a problem with the Vista AC97 audio drivers, googled around a bit and found a lot of people reporting that they appear a little sketchy.

Hardware Acceleration should be enabled by default on your soundcard, try installing those drivers and see if that resolves the problem, if not ... you should be able to rollback to your current drivers in vista. :)

If you get an error about your display driver I would recommend you uninstall your display driver from "programs and features" in the control panel ("nVidia Display drivers" iirc), once removed, reboot then run the installer for the graphics card again, once done, reboot again.

Try both and see how you get on. If you have some success, please post so others know :)
