Help! Just Cause 2 Crashing

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I just built a new PC the specs are in my sig
I can play just cause 2 for a couple of minutes then it freezes.
I can run Furmark and Heaven benchmark 2.1 without any problems.
Is it my pc or the game,
Thanks, Matthew

EDIT: Crysis will be done downloading of EA store soon so i will try it, any ideas what it is though?

Does this freezing primarily happen when you're up in the air (like flying something or using your parachute), and does it eventually un-freeze if you wait long enough ... then returns intermittently after that, getting worse each time more or less?

That's strange.. did you get any errors saying what cause the crash?
post #9 of 30
Is this the steam version, and/or did it 'carry over' from your old install (like you backed up steam and restored it after your new OS install)? If so, what kind of card did you have when the game was actually first installed?

I used to have freezing issues in that game, but I was doing a lot of switching back/forth with ATI and nV back then. It seemed like whichever brand of card was there when you installed the game was the only brand it liked to run w/o freezing on. IOW I found that re-installing the game whenever I switched gfx card brand would fix the freezing issue. This may or may apply to your situation ...

are you using a trainer of any sorts?

I know when I use a trainer for just Cause 2, the game will sometimes freezes on me then crashes to desktop, but playing with out the trainer will never freezes on me.
