Your machine certainly should run the game, it's a nice machine. Make sure you're not running any other applications, and perhaps try running in a window and watching the task manager to see if you can tell what other application is using CPU or memory. It seems like some other process is blocking the game periodically.
Wow, this is quite maddening. I tried your suggestion and have two things to say. First, there are no other processes taking any of my cpu resources, just Bone. So its definitely an issue with the game of some sort. Second, I quit the game after having switched to Window mode, and now, the game won't start up again. I receive an error:
Error: Access violation at 0x10083DAA (tried to read fro 0x00000000), program terminated.
This is fantastic! I see that you apparently knew of this problem too as you'd talked about it in another thread. So now not only can I not play the game without it freezing, but I have to reinstall the game and start over from the beginning because the game won't even start after I switched to window mode!
Needless to say this is quite frustrating and quickly making me want to stop playing. I hope that the new version you guys are supposedly releasing soon will fix some problems, otherwise I'd like to receive a refund since this product is unplayable.
I downloaded the "new" version and installed it. While I was happy to see that my saved games were still around, the problems still remain as well. Game still constantly freezing making it entirely unplayable. Guess thats just my luck.
