Browsing around it seems quite a few folks are experiencing crashes...

EDIT: pc is non responsive after I get this except for task manager.
based on the error code seems like a physics crash

I've been installing all my games into a "Games" folder, not in the default "Program Files (x86)". Not saying that will cure your particular problem, but it seems to lessen UAC headaches in general.

I've been playing Risen (retail DVD version) since Saturday on Vista x64 with no problems (except that I've got a dozen quests started and no idea how to finish any of them).

Using 9.09.0914 PhysX and 186.91 video driver.

Thanks! Mine are all installed to Program files(x86) and I have an ATI card, but I'll hunt up that physx version.

Much appreciated!

I cannot get enough of this game. Played all day yesterday and before I knew what was going on it was 2:30 in the morning. Needless to say I am slightly tired at work today. Almost called in sick just so I could play some more but my conscious kicked in.

Just started Chapter 2 before I finally went to bed. This is my GOTY so far, ahead of batman.

As a happy little guinea pig I installed the new forceware driver 191.07 WHQL which was released today, but suddenly Risen Demo crashed constantly with the error shown above. I then used system restore to recover my previous settings using forceware 186.18 WHQL. Furthermore the program Refresh Rate Patcher 1.0.1 did not work with 191.07 and made it impossible to use 2048x1536 at 85Hz on my Sony F520, but everything worked perfectly going back to the 186.18. And renaming Risen.exe to Gothic3.exe allowed me to use SLI without changing drivers.

But it is sad that Risen has about 25% of the texture resolution shown in Gothic3 in autumn 2006 - take a look at these stunning images from Gothic 3:







Does anyone still think Risen is beautiful and really pushes our high-end video cards with more than 512MB ram?

So Risen has a very bad disease of consolitis, and 3 years after Gothic 3 initial release there is still nothing on this planet as Gothic3 (especially using modified ini-settings to increase draw distance etc. beyond the max. settings in the game menu, Gothic3 shines - and forcing Gothic3 not to use more than 2GB system memory and patch 1.12, the game has been completely stabile on my PC in Vista32). The good thing is that Risen runs at a much higher framerate in the cities than Gothic3 - but then again, Gothic 3 is a work of fine art, while Risen seems made to please the masses (who do not own much horsepower - when Gothic 3 was released, people complained that only those with extremely powerful systems could run the game at maxed out settings)

Same here. I've been doing that ever since I've been playing vid games...

Enjoying this demo so far btw. My only complaint is very minor. I liked the distance you could see items in the Witcher. Risen you almost have to be on top of them. Bit of fun so far though.

Straight out of the box Risen looks better than Gothic 3 IMO. Gothic 3 also ran like complete **** on every system when it was released and it still doesn't run nearly as well as it should.

Considering the PC version of Risen is light years better than the console version, and wasn't even made by the same company, I don't get where you say it has "consolitis". It's basically Gothic 3 done better in every way.

Interesting thing guys, Direct2Drive has pulled Risen. They no longer are offering it. I can't find it in the RPG section nor with a search. I wonder if its due to Tages...

Some nice tweaks here.
