I’ve been in contact with Telltale’s customer support, but now I decided to write here so everyone can take a look. I had a problem with the earlier CSI game Three Degrees of Murder, where the videoclips overheated the video card and crashed my computer or gave me the blue screen of death. I wanted to know if this problem continues with the new CSI Hard Evidence.
My computer (with Windows XP) had (and still has) ATI Radeon 9100 card, and now I was told that this overheating problem was fixed in a new update of the driver, and there should be no problems with the new CSI game. So I got the game, but lo and behold, the game has already crashed three times during the first case… Twice it crashed during or at the end of the video clips, and once it crashed just when a flashback was starting to play. This time around there has not been the BSOD and the computer hasn’t rebooted itself like it sometimes did with TDOM, but my computer just freezes and the screen goes black. I loved the first two CSI games, which by the way worked like a dream. Now it seems I can’t finish Hard Evidence, just like I couldn’t TDOM.
I hope these games will some day be released on Nintendo DS, so I could enjoy them too.
