Raven, what is with this game constantly freezing? Before and after the patch, this game freezes or crashes in both single player and multiplayer for no reason. The screen either freezes or performs an illegal operation :(

My specs:
1.6 Ghz Athlon XP
64 Mb NVidia GeForce 2 MX with 23.11 drivers that Raven recommended
256 Mb RAM
Windows 98 SE
DirectX 8.1
61 Gb harddrive with loads of free space

I can't figure out why this game is freezing on my computer. This game is freezing for many people with high end systems. Just look at some of the following threads:

I'm sure there are more posts, but I'm getting lazy now :p :p. Raven, please please fix this. This makes things so annoying and frustrating at times :rolleyes:.

Honestly, this is this first I've heard of this problem. Can you e-mail me directly at mgummelt@ravensoft.com so we can see if we can figure out what's wrong? Also, anyone else who's been having this problem.

If your hard drive is locking up, do a thourough scandisk first and foremost. Fixes about 40% of lockup problems.

I wish I could give you specifics and say “when I do this…., or when this happens…….” or whatever, but can’t. Basically the game (either single or multiplayer) will just lock up anywhere for no reason, no matter what’s going on. Sometimes I’ll get a Blue Screen of Death, but usually the game just freezes there with no sound or the sound looping and I gotta reboot my computer. The game just freezes :confused:

That's your problem, not the problem of the game...try scandisking, reformating, or whatever.....

I have a 61 Gb harddrive, it'll take over a day to do a thorough scandisk :D. Seriously though, it's happening to loads of people. Just check the one thread entitled "Freezing". I'm not being a dick or anything, I'm sorry if I come off as some sort of Ravenhater. I'm not, it's just this game freezes at the worst times for me. :rolleyes:
