it seems that when in game it crashes a ridiculous amount,
screen freezes, then goes a little darker, then back to normal, then goes black with the same brightness change every second or so. the sound is playing throughout. i have to alt f4 to get back to desktop
sometimes the crash sort of stops and i can resume playing, only to crash again after a few seconds a play
it happens after a few seconds or after 5 mins. the thing is, some days i can play it for hours on end with no problems whatsoever, and then some days it crashes constantly!
IT DRIVING ME CRAAAAZYYY!!!
to prempt any unhelpful posts, no offense, i've updated all my drivers for EVERYTHING (specs below). the only driver that is slightly out of date is the display as the latest one was causing CTD's!...im on catalyst 8.11/8.12
registry has been cleaned, havent defragged for about a month
dell dimension e520
intel core 2 duo 6300 @1.86ghz
2gb DDR2 ram @ 400-667 mhz
ASUS EAHD 4670
350w DELL PSU.- i know its feeble but as i said above it is proven that it works!!!!!!!
thanks in advance!!
PS, all other games run fine (cod4 etc) and this problem only occurs in single player mode!
also........heres a strange thing that happens with it........
when im loading a save game and the splash screens of the far cry 2 world come up with the loading spinny thing and the quote thing, if it takes THREE splashscreens before im in game, the game will run fine indefinetly. BUT when there are only 2 SPLASHSCREENS during loading the game will do aforementioned crash/freeze thing. also when the game sound effects dont cut in the the loading it will run fine too, but when they do i have the crash/freeze issue.
PLZ help, im getting to the end of my tether with this game.......
i've been told its a PSU issue....any other suggestions......?
