s.t.a.l.k.e.r freezing/crashing

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hey guys, I can't figure this problem out. I just got stalker yesterday, and can only play it for about 10 minutes before the screen goes black, and I have to hit ctrl+alt+delete and end the game. it doesn't happen when loading, or anything, it just happens out of nowhere while I'm playing. I've lowered my overclock, and installed patches, is there anyting else I can do?

thanks guys!

Simple answer. Nope

The game is ridiculously buggy, especially on a vista machine. I ended up selling my copy for 35 bucks to a friend because it was so bad. Its just a badly coded game.


Initially I got game crashes, but with the most updated patch 1.0003, I would actually get "LOCKED PAGES" errors.

I used the NOCD patch, but wth, that should work fine.

oh and if I try to change any settings, like mouse sensitivity or brightness, it immediately switches to default after I exit the options page... any help with that?

For changes to take effect, you need to exit and reload the game.
