ok i bought the game it worked perfectly fine no lag i could run with settings up i could play multiplayer. when 1.01 came out i installed without a problem went to start game it went to a black screen as usual but then crashes to desktop i tried many diffrent downloads of the patch all with the same result i so i reinstalled game and it ran fine without the patch. then installed 1.02 and it crashes just like before. i really would like to why it is doing this and dont just post o well it worked fine for me im happy it worked for you but why wont it work on mine.

Is it possible you might have had something running in the background that would have caused it to corrupt the patch installation? Like an Anti-Virus program?
