Hello all, new to the board, hoping to get some help.
This past weekend I purchaed the aforementioned game. My wife is the one who primarily plays it. Ever since she installed the game we've had freeze and crash issues. I'm well within the system requirements, i hope. My directx is the correct version
The problem is prefaced by a loss of voice sound. Background music plays fine. Then, at some point, the game freezes. The only way to unfreeze is to restart the computer. This usually happens after the game has been running for about an hour.
My first thought is it's a sound card issue. I'm led to believe that by the system requirements in the manual. The manual states that a sound card must be present or the game will not run. The readme file also contains a list of sound cards that have been tested with the game. I'm currently using the integrated sound card on my desktop motherboard. Should or do i need to upgrade to an internal plugin sound card? If so, which one is recommended(in addition to the ones in the readme file for the game)?
I've got an ATI 128mb video card installed. I doubt that's causing problems. The only other issue i can find is a conflict with my McAfee virus scanner, but i can run other games with the virus scanner on and there's no problems.
Am i close to being correct? or am i totally off my rocker?:confused:
