hrmm we've all crashed, the 6 people I play with. the Steam Forums are full of people with the same problem. Seems to happen randomly - could be 2 mins in could be an hour in.

Some believe its a x64 issue as there are some folders the game tries to access that it doesn't have permission to access. Its not GPU dependent either as ATI and Nvidia are all affected by this. We have only played Campaign so I dont know if it affects other gametypes.

There are a million threads like this -

don't buy ATI. Lesson learned. ATI = Crashing. Nvidia = Not Crashing.

Pretty simple.

yea right. 2 of us use ATI HD5870s the other two guys use 280GTXs. and guess what? We all had a problem and crashed other the other night at one point or another... so its got nothing to do with ATI.

What lesson was learned? I love my HD5870 and thats coming from a long time Nvidia user. 9800GX2, 8800GTX, 260 GTX, 280 GTX. Sound like you have no idea wtf you are talking about just hot air fanboi crap.

yea, thanks. So you had problems too with the game crapping out? Everyone I play with has issues with randomly crashing - and its only this game too.
