Anyone using XP64-bit and getting these lockups or getting this with anything other than 81.85 drivers? I'm running 64 with 78.03 and just figured I'd try the game without the DVD fix so I reinstalled it and installed the 1.01 patch and still no problems so far. Also did anyone else notice that the menu screens seem to take an IQ hit with the no-cd/dvd fix (jaggy text and slightly lower res backgrounds)? I thought the menus looked like crap but turns out they look great without the fix.

FEAR kept locking up my system upon exiting the game after I installed my 2nd 7800GTX to be used in SLI.
I reinstalled the 81.87 drivers and the game itself(over half way through )
AND didn't install the 1.01 patch.
It worked. No more lock ups when leaving the game.

During fps testing today I installed patch 1.01 and my fps increased a bit with every option chosen. Also, with the patch it now renders in a different SLI mode now.
I had the Global Preferences set to AFR 2 with the tests without and with 1.01 patch. Without the patch I got the typical horizontal green bar, BUT with the patch--and not changing anything in the Global Preferences--it now displays the vertical bar which indicates SFR.
It would seem that the patch overrides the Global Preference rendering mode and forces the use of SFR which does give better performance.
Unfortunately my system locked up after exiting the game, but I did set my resolution to 1920X1200 and I enabled Read Only for that file so the game would keep the setting.
After I changed back to 1600X1200 and disabled Read Only my Exiting Freeze Up issue went away...for now at least.

*off topic*

what does 1600x1200 look like on that monitor??? I am thinking of getting one but was a bit concerned that the native res might be asking a bit much for my rig....

I don't even notice the difference in game. It's somewhat noticeable in the menu though.

The problem has returned! Yes, it's been a while since I played.
I tried the 1.02 patch and 6.7 system drivers, but it still freezes on exit.
CTRL-ALT-DEL is the only way to go.

Never had this problem running the 1.02 patch.

Linky Linky

I do recall it did hard lock the exact same way on mine once when patched to only 1.01.
