Will do! I will have to check on my other computer because this one doesn't have as many issues.

OK my friend , anyway if it doesn't solve some connection issues , it really fixed crash problem for me and everyone who I suggested it to them ,I personally don't have any serious connection issue , and if there are some of these issues, hope to be solved with game patch ( if there will be a patch for this game !).

Turns out I already had this, but it did stop crashing, not connection.

Did nothing for me, game is still broken and refuses to work. Is there ever going to be a patch or have we just been ripped off?
The total lack of response suggests the latter.

Hi,

I already had that update, I uninstalled it and installed it again just in case and NADA. My game still crashes to desktop in the third chapter when Kane meets Lynch in the bank lobby. :mad2:

I still live on faith and hope that a patch will eventually come fix our issues sometime this year. :lmao: :lol: Not looking good after so many good titles that always worked fine. I am almost sure the MS Live crap is what messed this game up.:eek: ****

as some Ahole by the handle GIGAR has said in a few on my post on this forrum and another one "It all about business" so from a comment like that i would say you, me and all the other people that baught this game should have just bent over and grab your ankle since by buying the PC version of the game we have all been screwed. they already have our money why would they try and keep us happy by fixing the verybadly bugged game?

and as you said by the lack of response im begining to believe it more every day. at the very least someone from eidos or IO should at least should give the people some kind of response to let us know they are indeed working on the problems.

the only time i ever see posts from eidos or IO on any threads is if someone compliments the game they never post when someone asks a question about why the game is so bugged.

ive posted a number of questions on this forrum and on the inside forrum and the only one that ever response to all my posts is a moron handled GIGAR and hes always trying to point the finger at the ISP, ports not being opened or the persons PC on why the game doesn't run right for them. but you, myself and all the other people that baught game know its the game itself that is buggy.

Hello again,

Don't waste your time insisting,:lmao: :whistle: they will not commit themselves to a date. :mad2:

The most they will tell you is: "it will be done when it's done", or "it will be out when it's out". :lol: :rasp:

God help us....

5-6 months later, still no patch. I don't think it's good to diss customers like that. :mad:

Way to go Marketing and Support. EA games may be buggy, but at least they support them all the way and with frequent patches. That's why people keep buying their games, which in return they keep getting more money. That's why they're on the top even though people complain about them. Same goes for Activision.

My game keeps crashing at the first black screen:

Windows XP Home Service Pack 2
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
2GB DDR2 RAM
nVidia GeForce 8800GT (driver: 169.21)
Games for Windows Live (version 1.2.0241)

I sent an email with dxdiag attached to Support. They replied to me I might have a bad disc and ask me to send the game back (with purchase receipt) to Eidos with ME paying for the shipping.

1st: I would not pay for shipping in a situation like this.
2nd: I threw away the purchase receipt because I knew the moment I unsealed the game, I won't be able to return/exchange it to the store.

I replied these to Support and then never heard from them again.

I too was asked to return the game. My thought were the same, there is no store ever going to take a PC game back.

Ensure Hardware Sound acceleration is set to full
– Windows XP
- Click on Start
- Click Run
- Type DXDIAG in the Open field and press OK
- When DXDIAG opens click on the Sound Tab and ensure Hardware Sound
Acceleration level is set to Full Acceleration
---
After I did that the game runs rock-solid...

hi!

maybe i can help some people who have crashes, not in the gameplay, but in the beginning, in the menues....

anyone with crashes at this point who uses a microsoft mouse?
(i have the new sidewindermouse), and it turned out, that with a ms-mouse, the game crashes (mostly soon in the first menu,, even before the game starts to play).

using another mouse will fix that problem, but sadly not the crash in the bank (when i get in the transporter) =(

in the eventmanagement i looked, and found out that the crashes in the menues are dx-related (the sound-"solution" did not work for me), and further research showed that my mouse (dx-input) was the problem. no idea why, but it worked fine.

**
anyway...a patch would be fine... =)
this is really a baaaaad story from eidos....this is a real rip-off...

And yet, six months later, we are still waiting. And you have yet to return to these forums as of late, only contributing to the speculation that we, as PC game owners, are getting screwed.

We have been patient, and we have been trying to work with support, but when we continue to get swept under the rug, we have to start doubting that a patch is coming. It also does not help that you yourself bragged about the maps coming to the PC, and yet we PC gamers do not have them, while console players are enjoying them right this moment.

There is an old saying, S*** or get off the pot, and right now, you are just sitting there instead of finishing up.

in germany, in some shops they sell the "game" now for under 20 Euro, and i have paid more then double. i wouldnt buy the game for 20 euro again, until there is SOME reaction from the creators AND/OR publishers.

i still wonder why so many game-mags have rated the game good (it may be good...who knows), but NOT ONE of the mags said anything about the massive bugs and the problem with the "support".
NOT ONE mag that i read (more than one) talked about that. not in the first review, or anytime later.
but...hu...if they say something bad about the game or the companies behind the game, maybe they loose some good/rich companies who put (and pay for) commercials in their mags..... ?!
i remember a case, where one reviewer who said not so nice things about K&L, got fired because the mag was getting rough pressure from "somewhere"....

but....hmm....i havent said anything.....

I have just made this mistake and bought it (because it was sold for 20 Euros). I am one of the Persons who has the mysterious Sound - Problems, I hope that there is at least a solution to this Problem (already startet a Thread in this Forum, we will see where this will go...)

Yep, also read about this. Sad but True, but I think that this is common practice these Days. If you are from Germany you maybe remember the story about Ghotic 3 and a Gaming - Mag called PowerPlay...the Publisher (Jowood I think) even tried to sue them (or at least they try to threaten them with that)

Only paid $5 for it, got it at a Goodwill store unopened with a Walmart clearance sticker on it. Guess they couldn't sell it even at Walmart with all the problems it has, lol. At least I didn't pay full price, 5 bucks will barely get me a gallon of gas anymore, so it's not as big a deal.

Would be nice if they had a patch, though...

Well I had these crash and sound issues too. I solved the first immediate c-t-d by installing the latest nvidia drivers for my GC. Then the game started but crashed again in the first cut-scene. Sound flattered too. I lowered the HW-acceleration for my onboard soundchip to "basic" and that fixed this issue. Sound isn't good at all but it's almost acceptable. Hope this helps someone.:whistle:
