Are you shutting down all non-essential programs (especially anti-virus) before starting the game?
I don't have the game yet, so don't know if there are any know issues that can cause this...
mm i could give it a try, but i rather not turn off the antivirus. but i can try making some exeption for the game i guess. worth a try
no i have the original DVD from the store, so no need to use a crack.
securom if the DVD driver ? there don't seem to be any errors regarding the dvd-player. it just when i click save game and select the file to overwrite, and click yes to confirm, the game crashes.
