View Full Version : Game freezes almost every time in space

Even after installing the 1.1 patch, the game seems to freeze in space on a consistent basis. (I think I've only been able to get through one entire space battle without freezing out of about a dozen attempts.)

The game has never frozen at any time other than during a space mission. Not on the ground, or menus, or anything else... just space.

Fiddling with graphics settings doesn't seem to help, this happens on 1280x960 w/ 2xAA, 0xAA, and 1280x1024 resolution.

A little extra info:

The game only freezes up when I'm actually in a ship. Running around or manning turrets doesn't seem to cause a problem.

The game also seems more apt to freeze right when an explosion should happen, for example when I blow up a frigate.

Not suprisingly, updating to the latest graphics drivers (came out for Windows x64 just a week or so ago) fixed the problem. Played about four whole space battles online and nary a glitch to be seen.

A mod can lock this now. :)

Glad you could help yourself :)
