Just bought this game today and after about five or ten minutes of play it will crash, every single time. I am running 64x vista with an HD 4870, my PC in general is new and high-end. I also realized this is a pretty common problem so I don't know if it's because of driver conflicts, registry files, or perhaps ffdshow.
So far I've tried reinstalling the game, uninstalling a K-Lite Codec pack and getting the latest video drivers.. nothing. Afterwards it started saying "winmm.dll was not found", even though it would eventually load the launcher. The only strange thing about my PC for the time being is that I'm using a CRT monitor via a DVI to VGA converter.
Is there a way to fix this? Or will I have to buy a x32 vista and do a dual-boot just so I can have some game compatibility on this machine. I'm really worried about this because it could persist onto other games. Another strange thing to note, I have two free mmos that I play. One crashes in a similar manner and the other plays fine.
