    Exclamation Game crashes after third mission

    I bought this game for my son about a month ago. The game started crashing after third mission. I have Windows Vista. Vista logged a problem in atiumdag.dll. I tried so many things but could not get the game to run. Eidos help centers in US and Europe did not help either. Eidos distributes it's products through a local company in India and they were terrible to say the least. I have ATI 2600XT graphics card. I keep updating it's drivers. Yesterday I got ver8.5 driver. I updated my system. Then I noticed atiumdag.dll in the directory where Conflict Denied is installed ( d:\eidos\conflictdenied in my case). I checked it's version and found that it was from a date in March,2008. The atiumdag.dll in c:\windows\system32 was from a date in April,2008. I copied this file into the game folder. LO behold... the game started running smoothly. The lesson is... with these buggy games get ready for a long haul. Your kids won't leave you alone.

    Anyway here's a summary:

    If your game crashes and you get a message that the faulting module is atiumdag.dll (for those with ATI graphics) then here's what you got to do...
    1> Update to driver version 8.5 from ati.amd.com
    2> copy atiumdag.dll from c:\windows\system32 to your game folder.

    I still can't understand why Eidos keeps a copy of system dll's in it's local folder????

    Hope this helps some troubled soul!!
