I loaded the game up today after a weeks pause and I crashed 3 times in a row after only 2 minutes. Any ideas on how to fix this? Does it have something to do with my old saves not being compatible after an update? It worked just fine 10 days ago. Now it's unplayable!
Were you using your computer during the week you didn't play? If so, did you install and run anything new during that time--especially if it's a resident program of some kind--like an Afterburner version--or really any other program like that?
I've been playing since the week before launch (the EA that week) and then started over and have played the same save games through every patch and I've not had a single crash--of any kind at all(!)--now that I think about it--since then. And I've played every day, just about.
From what you describe, the biggest culprit is likely some other program you are running at the same time that the game is running...all I can think of at the moment. Any drivers updates during that week, etc.? ANy AV program change or updates? If so, same thing. Also, hopefully you didn't loan you computer out that week to a friend or relative? If so, I'd recommend a complete uninstall of the game and a reinstall--which should *not* affect your saves, btw.
