The screen freezes and to get out of it i have to press enter which closes the "this program has stopped responding" message (i have since discovered).
I have a NEW Dell XPS 17 laptop latest drivers and windows version here are specs (it can run skyrim npbs)
Windows 7 home premium 64 bit
Dell XPS L702X
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.3GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M
It crashes usually later in the game when more starts happening like medium to big fights etc (+20 mins into game) i can reload game and continue playing for a while before the inevitable recurrent crash but ive noticed if im in a mid-late game and i try to load another game whilst playing it produces a guarenteed crash.
MY SETTINGS ARE ON MINIMUM
If its because the game engine/design isnt up to scratch well, I would have liked that information before i spent $40AUD on an UNPLAYABLE game. No excuses for that sorry bro. (yea I just bought this sweet sports car... WTF!... it has a 2hp engine in it and will only move at 5km p/h!?) BUYER BEWARE MUCH??!?!? Aus govt consumer affairs would have a field day in court under implied warranty laws if i brought a claim against the company that sold me the game... and i wouldnt have to pay a cent (be a good oppurtunity for american privatisation addicts who really want to put a government funded PUBLIC consumer protection scheme to the test... cmon I dare you!)
Still to date every single/multiplayer game has ended via this crash. It makes multiplayer completely unplayable which personally, makes the game useless to me (makes singleplayer extremely frustrating aswell). It's not just on huge 8 player games either, 1v1 will still crash in roughly same amount of time its quite random but will always happen.
If it isn't fixed by or very shortly after release ill want my money back, fair enough dont you think?
