O.K this is an issue i have had with this game after trying too solve it since i bought the game via Steam 3 days ago.
I have searched these forums and steam forum and tried many updating,patch,config video settings ,installed and uninstalled programs,reloaded windows back on raw with just updates and Bioshock all too no avail.
I have read somewhere that someone has the same problem as i do but no solution has been resolved is this a graphics driver issue and yes i have tried the hotfixes from ATI/AMD.
The game loads fine no issues and i see everything i should see at the crash site and up until i enter the craft and make descent too rapture the game freezes right on the part where the slides come up the slide with the 2 smoking people.
I can ctrl+alt+del and terminate the application there for the game is not locking up my machine so there must be a driver hitch or game setting glitche somewhere in the case as it seems that the error is not hardware or windows based. I can post my dx diag specs but its too long too post what parts of it would be needed too help locate the problem?????
