Evil, I appreciate you giving the thread attention, but I think it goes without saying that both I and the others experiencing this same problem with crashing after character creation who have also taken the time to sign up just to find a fix, have already tried all else before signing up as a last resort.
But thanks for caring anyway, and bumping.
BTW, every time I retry this, the "definitive list" that you made a few years back is what I use.
Apparently it doesn't work for everyone, and therefore it's not definitive. No disrespect intended...but I'm just waiting for you to update that list to actually be definitive.
For what it's worth, I had this working with an intel chipset before...maybe a year and a half ago. That's a definite. It was the same machine as I'm using now, and I don't remember how I did it.
There IS a solution.
